AT&T’s Galaxy Note 2 Available Today for $299 on Contract

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is now available from AT&T for $299 on new 2-year contract. That makes it available on every major carrier in the U.S. except Verizon, who is still targeting the end of the month for their launch. The mega-phone comes in two colors, Titanium Gray and Marble White. It features a quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, an 8MP camera, and runs Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).

If you have yet to make a decision on the Note 2, you may want to check out our review of it.

  • David asaro

    Got mine from att and the screen is seperated from the housing near the power button. Anyone else have this issue?

    • Josh S.

      Mine does not have this issue. I would exchange it.

  • Rickerbilly

    I already preordered my Vzw version. I am patient, I can wait.

    Why is everybody elses retail price under $650 and VZW is $700 ?? .. and has that gay home button branding ?? #Fail !!

    • Luigi OToole

      You answered your own question, that Verizon customer home button cost $50!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1368032580 James E. Burkett

      The Verizon Note 2 will not have branding on the button. The pictures you see are for advertisement purposes, and won’t be on the phone you get from them. Now for that extra 50 dollars… It helps subsidize the on-contract price. Price of business I guess… But 50 dollars won’t stop me from getting it when Verizon releases it.

    299? No thanks.

    • Cucila Rodriguez

      If you don’t like the $299, you can get it at Tmobile for $369, if that helps.

        LMAO

  • MotoRulz

    “Look at that sexy home button” Says all Verizon customers who want this phone..

    • smackdn775

      they stick their logo on all the phones, why is this one any different???? just something more for douches to whine about.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Janel-Lee-Longoria/100000139011992 Janel Lee Longoria

    Yeah Verizon may be last but least yall will have the multi window function already working out of the box.(says so according to the website) TMo was the 1st to release of the 4 carriers and we are still stuck with no multi window. Sucks.

    • Va Funculo

      True, verizon users will be able to do a speedtest in one window and compose a compliant email to verizon in the second window.

      • bitchplease

        Is a 64 gigabyte version not coming to America?

        • Henry Harris

          It is if you put a microsd card.

          • JAMman

            But I heard that Jellybean wont allow appsorganizer to be stored on the SD card. Bummer!

          • JAMman

            Stupid autocorrect! I meant “apps.” Not appsorganizer.

            One word… Root

          • Joe Biden

            One word: “Root It”

  • Ron_Swanson

    I love how every Note 2 thread becomes a Verizon hate thread. Fantastic.

    • zepfloyd

      Really Ron, Really??? YOU’RE going to complain about hating on something?

      • Ron_Swanson

        I was being serious…..it really is fantastic.

  • Charlie T

    I love this frigging phone! I left Verizon with my Galaxy Nexus and unlimited data for the Note 2 on ATT (of course Verizon is getting $250 etf from me). I had terrible reception on Neux and never knew if it was phone or carrier. So I switched both.

    The call quality and data speeds on my ATT Note 2 are fantastic. Strong voice and data signal, clear voice, good volume. My LTE connection works in rooms that did not work with my Nexus. My data speeds are anywhere from on par to double the Verizon signal (when I could get a verizon signal). This is in Chicago where both carriers claim to have their strongest signals based on their maps.

    • AJA0

      How could you possibly leave Verizon for AT&T? AT&T is the worst company I’ve ever dealt with in my entire life. Their services, customer support, and prices are all extremely awful and ridiculous. I’d rather have no phone at all than give one single penny to AT&T.

      • Charlie T

        Oh, I’ve used them all, Verizon, Sprint, TMobile, ATT (and even Helio for a week – Sprint network?, returned it for the first iphone) and they all have things to hate. It’s just Verizon does not have a great signal at home or work for me. Sprint and TMO don’t have LTE (sprint minimal). So by default it is ATT for me this time. So far their signal has been great for me. The Note 2 is a great device (and it has a newer gen radio than my nexus).

  • zepfloyd

    Yeah, Verizon needs extra time to make sure their logo is firmly on all the home buttons. Sorry folks.

    • http://twitter.com/AJ_Quintel14 AJ Quintel

      I think they’re also using the time to upgrade the firmware to the update that all the other carriers and international seem to be getting. If you look on the verizon site it seems as if they’re advertising it with the multi-tasking feature out of the box.

    Damn you AT&T, Damn you!!!!!

  • JetBlue

    I guess having a larger LTE network lets you have late releases, locked bootloaders, carrier branded home buttons and late software releases.

    • Bizi

      You also forgot horrible customer service , higher prices, and limited selection of phones. I left Big Red months ago. I miss the great network but the $$ I’m saving and unlocked phones makes up for it.

      • AJA0

        They have excellent Customer Service, just dial 611 and hit zero a couple of times and you’ll be connected.

        If you mean technical support, I’ve never dealt with a company with good tech support.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1368032580 James E. Burkett

        Would you like a Kleenex? They have the best coverage. Over everyone else. You get what you pay for with the fake 4G (with the exception of maybe 10 markets) and sorry coverage from other carriers.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1368032580 James E. Burkett

      The Note 2 from Verizon Will Not have Verizon on the Home button. The pictures you see are for advertising. Locked Bootloaders… You see how long that lasted with the S3 right? Jelly Bean right out of the box should do fine for anyone. Might not be 4.2 but there is enough to love about Jelly Bean that we could wait for 4.2. Besides it’s not a NEXUS device so why are you complaining about software updates?

      • JetBlue

        And where did you get this info about the home button? because on Verizon’s site they have the logo on the phone in the preview.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1368032580 James E. Burkett

          If you don’t believe it, just wait and see. They had the Verizon logo on the home button of the S3 in pictures too… But it’s not there in the delivered product.

          • JetBlue

            I googled around a bit to try and find this Galaxy S3 with a Verizon logo on the home button and I found nothing. Care to show?

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1368032580 James E. Burkett

            They have all been taken down but there was a similar spat about the S3 having a Verizon logo on it before it was released.. But when the product arrived it had no logo on the home button.

  • Steve Douglas

    Any word on how the battery life is affected by LTE??

    • fartbubbler

      would like to know this as well. However, I’ll be buying on Verizon anyway.

      • michael arazan

        Isn’t quad cores suppose to save on battery life? Guess it’ll be a wash though with a bigger screen that eats battery life.

  • Damu793

    verizon or nothing!!!

    • Sally Leeds

      You’re better off with nothing.

      • fixxmyhead

        yea id rather not have verizons d!ck up my ass

        • Damu793

          pause!

      • DJyoSNOW

        The harsh reality of vzw? LOL :/

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1368032580 James E. Burkett

        You can whine all you want about Verizon but they will have signal (you know, that thing you need when in a jam in the middle of nowhere) where no other carrier has it. And you pay for it.

  • Brian

    Recieved mine on contract for $199 and got the $36 upgrade fee waived. Loving the phone after leaving iPhone.

    • FAL_Fan

      How exactly did you do this?

    • a.youth.in.Asia

      You’re not a teenie bopper anymore! Congrats!

    • michael arazan

      Going back to the $299 price again like last november and december? Is this an annual thing now? Not to mention the phone is $699 w/o contract, which should be in the article for those of us with unlimited and want to keep it.

      • JAMman

        My VZW rep said all unlimited data plans were being discontinued in 6 – 9 months.

        • http://www.facebook.com/djyellafella Derek Northern

          He lied to you.

  • FAL_Fan

    Come on Verizon! Last again…
