Samsung Note for T-Mobile USA will be released Aug 8, 2012. However I would wait for Samsung Note 2 as it is a far superior improved Note with big possibility of carrying the LTE technology as well as an improved 5.5 inch screen, the quad chip and better camera resolution, Is it worth the wait ? It all depends how fast you want the speed for the internet. Finally T-Mobile is catching up !!!! The Samsung Note 2, theGalaxy SIII and hopefully the iphone 5 will give T-Mobile the lead in phones and rates and should leap to 1st place. Go T-Mobile. Its about time !!!

Well, I have T-Mo's GS2 & the most I've gotten is 14mbps. So, I'd rather have an Exynos processor instead of this because the only place T-Mo will actually reach 42mbps is Timbuktu, apparently.

Before you take this home, test the screen for black crush. If your unit has it, don't bother, just get a something else. The note is plagued with display issues, do not believe the amoled hype.

Snapdragon S3? If the frequency is not bumped to 1.8ghz or above expect lagging on this version of GNote.
Point in case, HTC Sensation XE with 1.5ghz Snapdragon S3 (with 45% less screen estate than GNote.)

So basically, you may as well buy the At&t version, hack it to run on Tmo's HSPA+ and have the same thing for $250 on Craigslist oh and thats OFF CONTRACT.

Tmobile sucks now

As for the $29 figure, nothing in this category, which I personally think is unfortunate but maybe in the future

For Australia it is probably better to get the HTC One XL given its LTE frequencies. I have the Note which was upgraded to ICS with very unpleasant lagging etc. Would suggest everyone just wait for Note II if you really need it or otherwise just get the HTC, which is OK. Remember these are large devices to be carting around all day and I have seen a few cracked screens where people were not careful enough with the Note.

It seems Teltra wants to sell everything on $59 plan Of course, I know Teltra really focuses on tradies and businessmen who wouldn't mind to pay extra cash for medicore phones, but hey, don't you guys want more customers? I would love to switch to Telstra from Vodafone if there is a decent deal.
