am on HOLD, obv. we're currently receiving a very high number of calls...

is the Note just silly? what's the most recent one? am an android fan, have loved the HTC desire for last two years.

My friend and wife just got the samsung advance s and think its great.

Impossible to say without knowing what you use your phone for. You might as well just flip a coin.

Get a note.

NetworkGuy Thu 08-Nov-12 11:55:07

Galaxy Note 2 is most recent AFAIK.

What did you end up doing, and why didn't you research here on MN before ringing them ?!?

PedroPonyLikesCrisps Thu 08-Nov-12 12:20:08

I just got a note 2 last week and it's awesome. But if you have smaller hands then an S3 might be more usable.

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Thu 08-Nov-12 12:21:54

i got the note (presumably note 2? unless they were pulling a fly one...)

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Thu 08-Nov-12 12:22:55

and YES i know, i LOST MY MIND networkguy. hence my total panic on hold, thinking 'wtf haven't i researched this on MN?' grin

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Thu 08-Nov-12 12:25:24

i think what i was asking, tbf, was 'i want a note, are they bloody ridiculous?' but appreciate in my haste i perhaps didn't express tht correctly. they do look ridiculous but i've seen a number of people express shock and awe about theirs...

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Thu 08-Nov-12 12:25:51

i have hands like shovels. grin

I hope it's the Note 2 but its not unknown for them to sell old stock to buyers who aren't fully informed about the latest models.

I suggest you check their website and see if the price for the 2 is what you paid.

Either way, you normally have 14 days to send it back.

NetworkGuy Thu 08-Nov-12 15:43:10

Indeed, you should be able to return it, unopened, if they have the Note 2 on their website, but compare the costs too, before you insist on a Note 2 (in case the cost rockets and you really don't feel happy paying at that level each month for XX months)

Sorry, hadn't noticed it was you Aitch, just assumed someone at random smile

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Thu 08-Nov-12 15:49:41

i'm absolutely as the next girl, NG, believe moi. oh i do HOPE i haven't been stupid enough to ask for the wrong thing. i'm sure the woman hasn't swizzed me, she was SO NICE.

(i've got 'mug' written through me like a stick of rock, haven't i?)

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Thu 08-Nov-12 16:48:03

ARF. as random as the next girl. she says randomly.

NetworkGuy Thu 08-Nov-12 21:30:29

Nah, but it is pretty awkward to know if you have the most up to date info (sometimes feel its my word against theirs when I feel sure an item has been released and they say no... I end up saying I will just have to "get it elsewhere then" which can lead to a mini panic as someone sees a potential sale {perhaps of some rival product} about to disappear through the door!)

NetworkGuy Thu 08-Nov-12 21:31:06

The 'nah' was about stick of rock thing

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Thu 08-Nov-12 23:33:26

i do think she was a good sort, this person, we had a nice chat about her degree in criminology (as you do). and like you say, i can send it back, if i've got the wrong thing i'll know about it quickly.

am wondering if this phone will make my hands look all dainty? you know, like transvestites using giant cocktail glasses?

NetworkGuy Fri 09-Nov-12 11:43:20

LOL

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Fri 09-Nov-12 13:02:03

ooooooh. pretty box. samsung galaxy note II lte.

NetworkGuy Fri 09-Nov-12 14:39:15

Lucky you, Aitch. Do your hands look all dainty?

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Fri 09-Nov-12 14:58:51

hehe. no.

it's charging at the moment. am feverish with anticipation. the screen is so big, though, it looks veh vulnerable compared to my wee htc desire. (which i also loved)

AitchTwoOhOneTwo Sat 10-Nov-12 20:40:04

oh my heavens! This is a modern marvel.I'm writing this with a
PEN!

MikeLitoris Sat 10-Nov-12 20:44:15

I love the note.

I went for the s3 instead as I need to keepmy phone hidden in my pocket in work.

TuftyFinch Sat 10-Nov-12 20:47:32

I'm a bit envy. I've got an old iPhone, with a cracked screen and still nearly 2 years until contract ends, stupid 36 month contract. Have fun with your lovely, new shiny phone. Is it the big one? That looks like a cross between a phone and a tablet? In my sheltered world I'd never seen one (if that's what you've got?) before yesterday. A woman at school had one and I thought it was a tablet, then it rang. I was all agog at the modern world. Have fungrin
