Thursday Poll: Are You Buying the Galaxy Note 2?

It wouldn’t be a proper device launch unless we asked the fabulous DL community if this was the phone of their dreams and whether not they would be buying one. So now that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is available (at least in pre-order form) from all carriers, we would love to know if you plan to make this your next phone. But feel free to take it further in the comments, by convincing the world that a phone with a 5.5″ screen is the way to go.

Are You Buying the Galaxy Note 2?

    I have been with tmoble since 2006. I love their coverage and buying my gn 2 on the first day is the best decision I have since I have with tmoble , im loving the phone the best phone I have ever used.

  • Been rocking this for 2 days now and vanilla would have made this flawless

  • kane

    I kinds of wants me the giant phone but my SG3 makes me happy with unlimited data on the evil big red. In any case suck it VZW!!!

  • I really wanted to but after seeing that logo placed on the home button, I’ll pass on it. How many freaking logos do we need on a phone? 3 on the back, and now on the home button? Give me an F’ing break!

  • I’ve been wanting a Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon for a long time and voted that I’d buy it on Verizon, but because they’re trying to force me to get rid of unlimited, I’m torn between having to buy it full retail at $700! Or go to TMobile or Sprint. Decisions decisions. Verizon is such a douchy company with the way they’re going about thing.. not only do they ignore their customers demands for the Note 1, just to see how it sells, but they finally are getting the Note 2, are trying to force you to get a measly 2gb share everything data plan, then by ignoring our anger over shared plans they announce it to be a success when no one had much of a choice otherwise. On top of that they put their ugly logo on the freaking button to remind you they pownd you.

    Anyone have any input on going to either TMobile or AT&T over Verizon? I may just suck it up and go with Verizon but what’s sad is in order to keep Unlimited data I can’t use a $50 Best Buy gift card, nor use the $30 NE2 credit, which when after the sale of my current phone would basically make the Note 2 free via using the discounted rate:/ Then on top of that the monthly rates are expensive as beans.. covered in gold.

  • Tmobile Note II day 2 loving every min of this sexy phablet.

  • Hahaha from Verizon. Suckers.

  • corymcnutt

    We are buying TWO – preordered one already and the next one in February when my wife’s phone is eligible for an upgrade.

  • Mark

    Doesn’t T-Mobile throttle their data? I average 70 GB of data per month and would get hit with early termination fees if I tried to switch. If I had to switch it would be to either T-Mobile or Sprint. MUST BE UNLIMITED….. However I’ll be passing on the Note 2. If it had a 1080 screen I’d buy it. But since it doesn’t I’ll wait

  • Bill

    I’m holding out for the HTC DLX. I have the original, international Note now and am tired of Samsung’s skin/bugs. I like what HTC has done with the One X series and am hoping the DLX is just as good.

  • dsass600

    Was planning on buying it till they shoehorned their logo on the fuckn home button.

  • Doan

    I’m on Verizon, so no, I’m not going to buy a phone covered in obnoxious Verizon logos.

  • Justin Swanson

    You don’t have an option for all ready bought it…

  • SAMBO

    Not getting it. Waiting for the HTC DLX, aka Droid DNA.

  • Too close to the S3 launch to consider it, but if it wasn’t for that I would have to try it in my hand to see what it would be like.

  • Hec

    Already bought it 🙂

  • JulianZHuang

    putting an ipad mini on your face….. looks funny.

  • nightscout13

    I’ve set my sights on RAZR MAXX HD unless the new RAZR X is even better…..

    • Zach

      You know that was pretty much debunked right? So I’m not worried a bit. I also went with the Maxx HD and love it.

  • jtavera

    If it comes to mexico soon. yes!

  • You know, when I see a poll like this, it appears like 59% of people are no because the phone isn’t good. You should clarify your questions so that it reads: “of those of you in the market for a new phone, will you be buying the Note 2”. For some of us, we’re just not in the market for a new phone and it skews the polls. Just my $.02

  • DonDemon

    I was really hyped on this phone until a saw the ugly HOME key with there damn logo all over it. Im still going to buy,but I hope that the logo can easily come off. I still cant understand why Verizon would smack it on the home key. No other carrier has done this. For Christ’s sakes Verizon, you take a beautiful phone and trash it. Why? Is your logo that important that it has to be plastered on the front and back? Since I will be Buying off contract you would think I could get one from right from Samsung (Developer Eddition) or something without “Verizon” written all over it1

    • bananatroll

      dude that home button can be replaced by the standard non-tatted up version from the regular gnote2 .I wouldnt let that stop you from buying a cool ass phone like this.

  • sr_erick

    Considering it, but that $700 off contract price is a bit on the high side. I’m also not too willing to give up my Nexus freedom just yet, but that 5.5 inch screen looks mighty nice.

  • The 5″+ crowd just isn’t for me. At least, until they can fit it into a device the size of the RAZR HD, ala the RAZR M.

  • Matt A

    Nope, beautiful phone, not Nexus, and I hate physical buttons. I want a clean face like the Galaxy Nexus!!

  • paul_cus

    I buy too many phones as it is, so no go on this one.

  • 420 on tmobile sucks!!

  • Tim242

    I am going to buy it from Verizon, if they will release it already.

  • Arty

    I have a glaxy nexus on Verizon. Went into tmobile today just to check it out and let me tell you that phone is amazing. It is everything people say and more. Definitely worth it. Can’t wait for Verizon model to come out.

  • lol.. $419 for this device for NEW t-mobile customers. thats absurd. (no i do not count rebate cards).

  • I want to keep my unlimited data just like the rest of us, but I also am thinking I can use one of my families upgrades.So I have 2 idea on how to do this..
    A) My dad is on a 4GB plan (from the double data Promotion), so I could move my upgrade to his line, get the phone, activate it on his line, and move it back to my line. But he would loose his 4GB data and get pushed to a 2GB plan..
    OR
    B) “upgrade” my mom or sister to a smartphone and get the N2, and then move them back down to their feature phone.. I know I would have to pay for 1 month of data..
    Can anyone say with 100% certainty that one of these would work?

  • Nope. Too big (for my taste, so save the “it’s not too big” comments), it has hideous VZW branding on the button, it has Touchwiz. I really think I may be waiting to see what the 2013 Nexus brings to the table. I’m fine with my GalNex until then.

  • bibousiq

    I own an HTC One X and i’m very happy with it ! 😉

  • Jerry Willis

    Pre-Ordered today ( AT&T ) and their website doesn’t show AT&T logo on the front of the phone.

  • I have Nexus 7 & will get Nexus 4 to pair with it

  • Art

    Since Verizon won’t have a Nexus, i’m getting the Note 2. I think I’m going to love it.

    • Devin Cawdrey

      I know people say shizzle like this all the time – but while on the phone today with VZW trying to get them to move my upgrade date up (so I could pre order the note II) at the end of our call (this was actually a supervisor) the lady just flat out mentioned that their was going to be a new nexus on verizon.. I made the comment to her that the LG nexus was not LTE – and she was like – well it shows here its a samsung device.. anyways take it with a grain of salt – but I know BS and she sounded dead serious factual

      • Art

        You’re right, there hasn’t been any official word that I’m aware of. I should have began my comment with the qualifier “Assuming”. I have time to wait and see how this all sorts out.

      • Charlie

        I bet she saw the new 16gb Galaxy Nexus SKU and assumed that was it. It’s new to Verizon as it just replaced the 32gb version. Different SKU’s of the same phones show up differently. Verizon isn’t getting a Nexus this year.

  • Joshua

    No white for AT&T — sad!

  • Benjamin Sicard

    Sticking with the GNex until another good Nexus comes along. Praying there’s more than LG’s strange attempt.

  • VicMatson

    Nope, not until their their update on!

  • Tiago

    Nop, just too big!

  • Bewara2009

    I bet the once that aren’t buying it is due to the Verizon logo on the home button…

    • I voted no due to the fact that the phone is way too big for my liking. It dwarfs my GS3.

  • Rob

    Waiting for a 1080p phone, maybe the HTC DLX/DNA but I don’t want to switch phones so soon after getting the S3 at launch.

  • Why anyone buys anything other than Nexus devices is beyond my understanding.

    • Rob

      Because the most recent Nexus device (that was a phone) has underwhelming hardware compared to everything else out right now? And because maybe some people want a huge phone? Or maybe because they like the stylus? Who knows, but not everyone is wanting a Nexus device, especially if you’re on Verizon and you don’t get immediate updates like the rest of the Nexus line.

      • The Gnex is a year old, of course it has underwhelming hardware compared to everything else right now, brilliant deduction there. Also, the Verizon Nexus gets updates 2 months later than the GSM Nexus, which is still WAY faster than non-Nexus devices on any carrier, so your logic makes no sense.

        • Rob

          My comment meant why would we buy the only available (at the time) Nexus compared to everything out currently. That’s why people might buy somethign else other than a Nexus, because the new one hasn’t been announced or made available for purchase (yet). Now of course it has.

          Oh, and people who want LTE like me don’t buy them. Trust me, I wish I could just buy one and use it on Verizon but alas, I cannot.

    • Odds are, from what I’ve read, Verizon wont get another Nexus device, so is having a Nexus device worth switching carriers? That’s your choice. Get a popular phone and the development community will provide you with OTA updates before they’re released, ROMs, tweaks, MODS, themes, etc. regardless if it’s Nexus branded or not.

    • Why current Nexus owners haven’t bought a GS3 or Note 2 is beyond my understanding.

      • Because the Gnex is still the best phone available on any carrier, that’s why.

        • Are you kidding me? Why? Because you can run AOSP ROMs? It has nothing else going for it. Crappy screen, crappy reception, crappy speaker, crappy battery life. So no, the Nexus isn’t the best phone available on Verizon, let alone any other carrier.

    • shooter50

      Kind of a crazy statement. Go to your local mall and and survey a dozen people if they even know what a Nexus device is. You’re living in a small world of your own if you think the average person cares about a Nexus device. The GN was and is an underpowered buggy device. I can’t believe anyone would still buy one with all the better options available.

      • I never said people don’t buy other devices, I said I don’t understand why anyone does. Also, the GN is FAR from being under-powered and buggy. But what would I know about that, I’ve only owned and loved mine since launch day.

  • HeartStrong07

    Like it, but … Rooted VZW GNex hard to beat IMHO

    • JoshGroff

      If you like not having bloatware and having access to all the latest and greatest features developers can dream up, then yeah it’s hard to beat.

      • Gabravo2005

        VZW GNex had bloat…..

        • JoshGroff

          Just the VZW account management app?

      • nhizzat

        I’ll take good battery life and signal reception over the latest and greatest. The latest and greatest doesn’t mean squat if you can’t use the phone. I enjoyed the Galaxy Nexus while I had it but the S3 blows it away in every regard.

        The move was even easier to make when I finally realized that the “huge” dev support for the Nexus was basically the same rom with different names, and no amount of flashing kernels and roms would net any gain in battery life.

    • nhizzat

      The GNex is very easy to beat, unless all you care about is a bunch of AOSP roms. That’s about all the GNex has going for it.

      • JoshGroff

        AOSP is light and smooth, but so is touchwiz with 2GB of RAM and an S4. So, you’re pretty much right, aside from more timely updates.

        • HeartStrong07

          Can’t really disagree except to say, if it the Galaxy Note 2 gets unlocked and unrooted, I would consider it. I simply like the power of putting the OS I want on my phone

  • If I didn’t have a S3 & a N7 I might consider it.

  • gadgetryan

    Pre-Ordered one from ATT. Thanks Work!!

  • If it is unlocked, or an unlocked version is available, I’ll definitely consider getting one. Will want to play with it in store first though to see how I like it.

    • JoshGroff

      There is an unlocked version, it was on sale on eBay the other day. (was announced here)

      • There hasn’t been any news about the Verizon version being locked or unlocked.

        • JoshGroff

          Was assuming gsm unlocked, my bad.

        • you will not beable to buy a galazy note 2 at verizon unlocked! they do not sell them in there stores unlocked. i have already asked them that ,BUT you can purchase one on ebay that has been through a versizon store and take it to a verizon store and they will hook it up,no matter if it is unlocked, but it has to have been through a verizon store! verizon gn2 locked, and they tell me that the can not be unlocked! alrighty then!

  • Mark Lewis

    Watching Kellex hold the thing up to his head reminded me of the Nokia N-Gage. Anybody else remember “side-talking”?

    Edit: If it wasn’t obvious, my vote was No.

  • No. No Nexus. No Phone.

  • NicholasMicallef

    I want to click yes (unlocked) but I think my current phone is decent enough and I have more important things to spend my money. Also there always seem to be interesting devices about to be released xD.

  • Ramon Gomez

    I’d love to but not worth giving up my unlimited data and Gnex.

    • Lactose_the_Intolerant

      Psst, you can get a Note 2 and not lose your unlimited data.

      • Ramon Gomez

        At full retail??

        • Lactose_the_Intolerant

          Yep.

          • Ramon Gomez

            I won’t pay full retail for anything less than a Nexus device.

        • K L

          You can still get a Subsidized Phone and still keep your Unlimited, you just have to do some juggling.

          • Radgatt

            This is true.

          • Andrew

            It can only be done if you have a family plan. Basically you upgrade one of your lines that doesn’t actually want the Note. Then you may have to go to a different store for this part because verizon doesn’t like it, but then you just ask them to do an ESN change to the line that wants to keep the unlimited data.

            Did it with my mothers line to keep the unlimited data with the SIII. Pretty easy actually.

          • Krack

            how do you do this?

          • Uh how??

  • As of right now, no. I am going to see what happens Monday. I would love to see another Nexus on Verizon.

  • FAL_Fan

    If it’s root-able and I can use wifi tether then yes (I still have unlimited data so I am very interested in rooting it)

    • nhizzat

      If? What phone hasn’t been able to be rooted?

      • JoshGroff

        Nothing that I’m aware of.

      • FAL_Fan

        True, I guess I should have been more specific, I meant if it’s rooted by my upgrade eligibility in early December…and no worries on my unlimited data, I have NY ways of keeping it.

    • Jerry Willis

      You don’t need root for wifi tether. User FoxFi

      • FAL_Fan

        I’ve had Motorola smart phones since the OG and I have had no luck with foxfi, only wifi tether has come through each and every time.

  • I’ve got to see what Google unveils first.

  • LLcdPH

    Just a little too big for me. I’m sticking with my GS3.

  • EvanTheGamer

    HELL…

    no.

  • Anakin Solo

    I was strongly considering buying one at full retail from verizon until I saw the abonination on the home button.

    • nhizzat

      That’s the only thing stopping you from buying it?

      • fauxshizzl

        It would be enough for me. I personally have no interest in the phone, but yes, a home button would be enough for me not to.

    • Rob

      Agreed, it reminded me I can wait until screens hit 1080p and start at 32/64 GB instead of 16.

      • Zach

        What, like the DNA that will come with 16gb of storage? That one? No 1080p/32/64gb anytime soon on Verizon at least

        • Rob

          Exactly. Waiting for 32 GB to be the minimum (since sd card slots seem to be disappearing, at least for the Nexus devices and the HTC One X) and a 1080p screen. That way I won’t be buying a phone off contract once or twice a year (grandfathered unlimited on Verizon).

    • Sam’s Son

      I have to agree with nhizzat. As silly as it looks on the home button, it still functions the way it would without the branding.

  • Tim Schall

    I voted no. I went the opposite direction and bought a Razr M to go along with my Nexus 7. It’s a perfect match and I could not be happier with both!

  • wish I could buy it…

  • Andrew Roth

    16gb is a complete non-starter.

    • r0lct

      16 GB for apps is plenty for most. Media and rom backups can go to the SD card.

      • Andrew Roth

        i guess i’m not “most”…..games i like to play are 3gb big and they can’t go on SD card. with the 16gb, that is 3 games and my phone is full (assuming 10gb left after system resources). That’s not that great for a multimedia phone….

  • 1bad69z28

    Nope, but I did like the shot of Kellex last night posing with his Galaxy Note 2 while taking a phone call LOL Man that thing was big against his head lol

  • r0lct

    I’m going to get one once the the bootloader is unlocked (or a equal work around) and I’ve tried the DNA.

    I’m sure the wife will like it if I don’t and I’ll just back to Gnex.

    • Ibrick

      That’s my concern with the DNA, which unless something gets leaked prior to that being released will be my next phone. I’d like to wait to buy until I know it’s been rooted w/ s-off, unfortunately, it seems like you generally have better luck getting the phone right away and waiting for an exploit to be found. Seems once that exploit is found, it’s pretty quick to be blocked and who knows when/if another will be found.

  • Tommy Thompson

    I am giving myself until December to decide. That’s the last month I can get the most of my S3 buyback.

    • Jon

      I just got an email from Samsung saying they will buyback phones to upgrade to Galaxy Note II. I went to the website and checked it out, they would give me $225 for my Verizon GS3. While not a horrible figure, I can sell the S3 on craigslist for $350-400.

      • Tommy Thompson

        I can get $350 from buyback as long as I do it by Dec.

  • niuguy

    I said yes but really I mean “Yes, if I can persuade my fiancee to let me buy it full price.”

    • MattyWalnuts

      are you using your money? ….spoken by someone who’s been married for 5 years

      • Lactose_the_Intolerant

        I feel you pain… but luckily we don’t have kids, pets or plants. Every time she tosses out the veto action, I respond with “Yeah, I suppose you’re right… since I don’t have a new toy to occupy my time, guess that means I can join my friends at the titty bar.” BOOM instant new phone :p

      • niuguy

        Its our money now….I’ve said this before and now its haunting me! haha We share accounts 🙂

    • nhizzat

      She ain’t your wife yet, buy it now before it’s too late. Once you’re wifed up, it’s over.

      • niuguy

        We live together and share accounts! We are basically married. lol

        • Ken Bosse

          Here is what you do, pull out a little money every day, small enough that she wont notice until you have enough. Just don’t do what they did in Office Space.

        • nightscout13

          Once she has that signed document, the noose around you sack will tighten. TRUST ME

    • Jackson

      I’m in the same boat lol

    • jbegs

      I’m in the same boat, but with my wife. I’m trying to convince her. I just got the GS3 but have wanted the Note since it originally came out. I may be able to work out a deal through my father’s upgrade. Anyone interested in a like-new GS3?

    • Leo

      Hahaha same here brother you’re not alone except I’m married so it’s a little tougher.

    • billy routh

      A man having to ask his womans permission. Lol. Not in my house

      • nightscout13

        Git’ R dun…..

      • fixxmyhead

        yup

      • hi

        Another mans perhaps? All good

    • Mike Menard

      Go Huskies!

      • niuguy

        Hell yeah!

    • fixxmyhead

      haha whipped

    • In some cases and on rare occasions, you have to use this logic…..”It’s easier to get forgiveness than permission”. (Use sparingly)

  • chris125

    I’m going to wait and see what people say once its out and in real world usage then decide. Plus see if Verizon does get the next nexus

    • nhizzat

      I’ll be waiting to buy one off eBay for a couple hundred off full retail. Perfectly happy with my S3 right now, but I want the Note 2 😀 Just not bad enough to spend $600 on it.

  • Switched from Verizon to T-Mobile and got my Note 2 just last night.

    No regrets.

    I’m tired of all the BS that Verizon has been getting involved with on the android side. Delayed updates, locked bootloaders, and now ugly home buttons lol.

    Also, my faux-4G speeds have been just fine so far (16+ mb down, 2.5mb up) and the T-Mobile version is LTE ready so it’s nicely future-proofed.

    • nhizzat

      How’s your network coverage though?

      • Well I’ve only been on the network for about 14 hours now so it is hard to tell.

        I’ve never had good coverage in my house (ATT/Verizon and now T-Mobile), but T-Mobile’s free Wi-Fi calling feature basically solves that problem entirely, it’s really nice.

        I get much better coverage at work and it’s been fine with the limited amount of driving around town I’ve had so far, but the coverage differences are hard to judge since I had a Galaxy Nexus on Verizon and that phone suffered some intermittent radio issues (not connecting to data on 4G etc).

        tl;dr – it has been totally fine so far, but it’s too early to really make a judgement one way or the other.

        • Nick S

          The wifi calling feature is really nice. I’m still under contract with Verizon (and get corporate discount) but will most likely switch after my time is served. Even with my discount, it will still be cheaper for my wife & I to make the switch.

          Grats on the sweet new phone!

    • New_Guy

      99% sure I’m doing the identical thing. Leaving VZW for TMo and getting the Note 2.

    • Dan

      I would also, but unfortunately I travel out of their coverage area too often and their roaming is zilch… well 50mb or something that might as well be 0..

    • roberthenderson

      Dang it! I I travel to rural areas for work, so I still have to have Verizon network coverage. Plus I use to much data.

    • fixxmyhead

      also dont forget the raping up the @ss they do

    • yarrellray

      I am so happy to see some of my Verizon friends here on Droid life do the same thing I did on June 28th 2012. I DUMPED VERIZON sold my crappy cdma Verizon Galaxy Nexus for my current Galaxy S3 it’s been such a great difference. I have enjoyed my Galaxy S3 on Tmobile in ways I couldn’t enjoy my Verizon Galaxy Nexus and with UNLIMITED DATA I am extremely happy. On November 1st I will be purchasing my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on Tmobile and will be selling my Galaxy S3 on Wednesday October 31st.. Tmobile is a great option and it’s HSPA PLUS 42MPS network simply blows Verizon out of the water with consistent daily use no problems with reception or signal strength. And talk about great battery life my Galaxy S3 got daily will only triple now with the Galaxy Note 2. Verizon sucks rotten eggs… Tmobile has a bright future with it’s upcoming LTE ADVANCED 10 NETWORK that should be up and working in many major cities by September 2013. It will use it’s current HSPA PLUS 42MPS network which will be back hauled and make the network even stronger. And we haven’t even touched the metropcs situation this just makes things better and stronger… Welcome to Tmobile my friends…

      • Damon

        Yo I hate Verizon too but i hate T-mobile more. You must live in a T-mobile store if your getting what you claim you are.

      • Diablo81588

        Dude just go away. You’re so annoying with your TMobile worshipping. We get it, you like TMobile. Enough already.

  • Joe

    no, because of verizon. that stupid [email protected] logo on the home button looks so retarded.

    • nhizzat

      It’s not difficult to remove or cover up…

      • Joe

        i don’t like using a case. and why should I have to remove it? and if it’s not a sticker, how are you going to remove it? putting any liquid on it could damage the inside of it.

        it’s ridiculous that samsung couldn’t grow a set and tell vzw no.

      • tell us (hizzat) on how to remove the logo from the home button!!!! please

    • hello joe, im so pissed about the logo on the verizon ph also, but i look at it this way,im going to get the galaxy note 2 and i am going to go out to a car dealer ship store and get a roll of pin striping, and im going to pin strip the hell out of this ph, then this way i put a cover over the back of it and wala “””(VERIZONS LOGOS ARE ALL COVERED UP)! there you have it. just pin strip the hell out of the logo and then get a new cover you have no way of telling it wa through verizon! so does this salve any problem everyone has with this logo now ?

      • you are buying this ph while you are on this two yr contract with verizon,its your phone do what ever pleases your little heart out to cover up them stupid logo from verizon! but the insurance is only $5.99 a month at least it is where im living.

  • triangle8

    If they would only let me buy now…

    This is my next phone, I enjoy my S3 and this is bigger and better and my wife will inherit my S3.

      I love how everyone dumps their older phones on their wives. Not that the S3 is a bad phone, but seems that everyone who gets a new phone or tablet gives their old one to their wife. Don’t wives want new tech toys?

        in GENERAL, men are the tech geeks and wives say, “i don’t care” to ANY comment relating to technology. OBVIOUSLY, there are exceptions but my wife didn’t know what 4g, swype, lte, hdd, gingerbread, ios, angry birds, receiver, ssd, gpu, cdma vs gsm, cpu, motherboard, google glasses, etc, etc, etc were until I told her. If i gave my wife a piece of bark that could call her mom and text her friends she would be HAPPY. That’s why wives get the “hand-me-downs” 🙂

          Wow…I’m voting this as one of the “Best Comments Ever”! My lady is the exact same way, so well done!

        In my relationships, it’s always me wanting the new gadgets and the girlfriends wanting the new shoes or purse.

        • Droidzilla

          D you get her old shoes and purses? Score!

        My wife doesn’t want new tech toys but she prefers we always have the same phone (so I can show her how to work it, swap batteries, etc).

        Some wives do, but it seems like most don’t. My wife has a Samsung Stratosphere (the first one) and she is happy with it. And she will be happy to inherit my S3 whenever I change phones.

        My wife didn’t mind have whatever phone i chose for her until she said, “i’m tired of having an older phone than everyone else. I want a top notch phone”. So i bought her the SG3. She LOVES it! ha Now if only i could find a phone i like. tisk tisk

        It’s one of the only ways I can get away with getting a new phone. So it’s a win win for both of us. She hates the idea of me getting a new phone already, but if she suddenly found that the S3 was activated for her and all of her contacts and apps transferred to it, she would not be able to part ways with it.

  • If the dev community is semi active and if someone finds a way to remove that branding from the home button with as little damage as possible, yes.

      Acetone usually works, or use modeling paint.

      • K L

        Acetone will mar the plastic and modeling paint will look tacky, just put a white sticker on it, worse case go to another Carrier and get a plain button and install it, worse worse case, don’t buy it, it looks ugly.
