After i upgraded the system of my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 days back, i'm having trouble opening my contacts. A message appears when i enter my contacts saying 'Unfortunately, contacts has stopped'. I tried restarting the phone twice and the problem still remains, can you help please?
Its a nice and a very useful device, but ICS has problems with it ( for now ).
Regarding your problem, try doing a factory reset.

Dear Galaxy Note users ,
I am currently using SGSII and its an awesome smartphone .. i have read the specs and reviews of NOTE and its almost as good as SGSII with even 2 plus points i.e a larger impressive display and a better processor ..
I am actually planning to change/ upgrade my cell phone ... SIII is not in my range otherwise i would have gone for it with closed eyes ..
I am confused b/w two : Galaxy Note and hTc ONE X.. I have never used hTc before and have always used Galaxy samsung smartphone series .. But after reading the specs and reviews of users I Have actually felt hTc is a bit on the better side .. but i am still confused ..
what do u guys suggest ?? Galaxy Note or hTc ONE X ?? I know the pros nad cons of both ...HTC has processor n better features.. note has a bigger impressive display ..both of these fone are in same price bracket in my country so thts y m comparing both .. otherwise I know SIII vs ONE X sounds good but not this . but still i have these 2 choices ....
which one is more reliable n durable ( for atleast 1 yr use ) ?? which one heats up MORE quickly ?? likE SGSII ?? WHAT WILL U suggest guys ??
thanks for the time ..pls do reply n guide with sincere approach not biased :)
htcsam, 14 Jun 2012I want to buy SGN bt i hv read that it gets worse whem updated to ics. Is it true? Pls tell, i... moreIn my case, After updating to ics, my note has been fine and is running better than what it was during gb. It runs smoother now on ics.
DO NOT BUY GALAXY NOTE N7000B. While I love my Glaxy Note, apparently Samsung made a special version called the N7000B which has not been updated to new ICS system and may never be. Be sure to check packaging and only buy N7000 version of the Note.
Please read General Section of XDA Galaxy Note. You'll find a lot of information about this brick bug.
To cut a long story short, Almost all Galaxy Notes have been shipped with buggy eMMC firmware, unsafe kernel and recovery.
Samsung had fixed this bug in Galaxy Nexus eMMC firmware (thank GOD! Google develops software of Nexus phones) but they still continued to ship other devices with the same buggy firmware.
Which means if you do factory reset from the phone you might end up with an expensive paperweight.
Samsung is currently working to fix the bug. I strongly recommend you all to read http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1633943 before you buy this phone or upgrade to ICS.
Be careful when you buy any Samsung devices in future.
it a bad smartphone emmc bug must phone was bricked du to this bug,
plz don't update to ics stay with Gb if u love your note bcoz this ics is very complicated.
GN or S3 is better. I have been holding GN, so far no issue but S3 seems to be a nice.
