Files and documents are typically on my sd card which comes straight over.
Normally i install all my apps from scratch as i tend to accumulate some junk. Certain apps (msecure etc) can be synced from dropbox... there are backup programs such as gobackup and backup pro that will backup and restore apps, data and settings.
Rooney-, 11 Feb 2013How do you do that?I brought my note 2 for $750. I am in the 38c tax bracket so claiming on tax really costs me $465.
I then sold my old note for $455... so the new phone cost me $10 .... if the tax man asks, my old phone broke :-)
Hey guyz it seems you are 4getting about internal memory coz no1 has complained abt it.My note2 is great coz my 32gb sdcard is now my internal and my internal I dnt use it coz it has decreased to 1gb.

It took me a day of hesitation till I decided to root the Note II to regain everything - S Note, data for each apps, game levels, configurations, etc. Rooting is the only way possible so that you use an app like Titanium Backup Pro to restore everything like from an old device. It gains access to the restricted parts of the device.
You can freeze, totally uninstall even stock apps that usually can't, and make a backup in the SD card or cloud services. I stayed the unrooted way for a year for the warranty, but heck, I now wished I learned how to root from the start as I missed the full potential of my first SG Note!
But transferring the entire stuff from a totally different system is a bit of a problem though.

You should be able to sync your BB contacts with gmail? once you have done this they will automatically sync to android when you login with your gmail account.
I also sync my phone and outlook using sync2. Its a paid PC app worth about $30.

I kinda like that functionality in the Blackberry desktop software.

For me the Note 2 was a massive step up from the note 1 in build quality, processing power, looks and battery life.
The big step up of the note 3 (rumored) will be the screen size. On top of that you will get noticeably better camera, processor, battery etc.
International phone warranty only lasts 12 months therefore i update every 12 months..... i can generally sell my old phone, claim my new one on tax and it doesn't cost me a cent. :-)
Note 2 is just a pinch over note one, why on earth you guys are dying fr an outdated model when SGD 4 ad noye 3 on the way. just sell ur set now and see loss with difference of 500$ plus when u buy nxt model. open your eyes as its numbers game slowly each cam gpu chip size is alyered to attract buyers. calling receiving txt bt wifi etc are basic needs ad are wrll met by old models, be content with them.
TheNeighbor, 10 Feb 2013The Galaxy Note II has changed my working habits since the first version.
As an architect, ... moreAs a civil engineer i use pretty much all of these functions as well and love the note 2.
That said i will be upgrading to the Note 3 (Rumored 6.3") when it comes out :-)
plz someone inform me that how could I update batter lyf of my phablet
Is there a step-by-step set of instructions available for the Samsung Note II ? The phone is loaded with nice features but no instructions on how to use them.
mo, 10 Feb 2013Neighbour. I believe you're an architect. So am i. What do you use the note 2 for?The Galaxy Note II has changed my working habits since the first version.
As an architect, I use:
*Smart Tools - pendulum, distance estimates, bearings, height estimates.
*Camera - Site construction progress, things client might like to buy
*Drawing - details to Foreman/engineer
*CAD viewer - review; mark changes
*Teamviewer - you can do full cad & Sketchup anywhere with remote controlling your laptop (delayed but you don't need to carry one and plug in)
*S Note - meetings, design developments, punch list
As presenter in school:
*HDMI connected to projector
*Wireless AllShareCast dongle would mirror your screen too
*live markups with the S Pen
*Teamviewer can access my laptop for files I need
And as you can see, the Note can offer some level of art making. All that and more in your pocket - well, small belt bag with the accessories.
