Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 - Bypass Secured Lock Screen

If you somehow forget the pattern, PIN, or password and lock your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, you might be locked out forever. But it's not entirely impossible to break into a locked device and reset the secured lock screen. Without data loss! »

Works fine with Samsung Galaxy Tablets:
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1)
Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro (8.4)
Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro (10.1)
Samsung Galaxy Tab S (8.4)

Galaxy Note 2 - Tinny sound in calls

More frequently lately my Note 2 sounds very tinny and loud when making and receiving calls.I joke with a friend that it sounds like she is standing right behind me. Before, I would hang up and redial to fix it it. Now that doesn't work any more. I thought it was a reception issue. Any ideas what might be happening? Has it happened to you?
I'm due an upgrade next month but I would like to keep this phone longer if possible.

Sim Subsidy Unlock

Anybody knows if the Galaxy Note II from US Celular would work on a GSM network like T-Mobile or AT&T?
And is the phone factory locked?

I have the phone and I want to use it with T-Mobile

Due for an Upgrade soon - This or the LG Optimus G?

So I was due as on 11/01/2012. I originally wanted to go Nexus 4 but if it was coming to Sprint, wich I guess it's not. So the choice for me is between the two devices. Help appreciated!

Just wow

I'm surprised they haven't added Samsung TV's to the mix. Oh wait, they only seem to be going after devices that are in direct competition with them. People can say what they want but, if Samsung wasn't their direct competitor in hardware, i doubt Apple would be doing this. At least, not on such a large scale.

What The (insert choice of explitive)!

Apple is like that chic on Maury that got drunk at a party can't remember quite what had happened and now is parading an entire line of devices, making all kinds of absurd claims, clogging up the court dockets, subjecting everyone to undue test and scrutiny just to get a check. ..

Geesh Phone Baby Mama Drama

COME ON APPLE! Is this really worth the damage this is doing to your once in foul able BRAND? Have you checked the pulse on your Net Promoter Score? There are several consumers out there that will never buy an Apple product not because of your build quality but for this court room BS..

Battery Life Slaughter

Running 2 applications at the same time, you will literally be able to see the battery icon slowly deplete. Apparently, from what i've heard, as soon as you launch the second application, the battery icon will decrease also at that time.

You Just Cant Do It. Can You Eric?

As being an established and trusted member of the wireless reporting media Eric, I would of expected better than for you of all people to not tarnish this well written review of yours with a jab at Sprint's network.


Coverage is suject to geographic limitations and varies widely fron region to region.

I get it, youre not a Sprint fan, but could you be a bit less conspicuous with yiur bias, it truly detracts from Rich's and your credibility.

Rob P.

BTW Just bought this device and I have had Sprint for years very loyal to Sprint and LOVE THIS DEVICE!

OMG I Just Got the GSIII !

I guess I am going to have to upset a Radio Shack employee by RETURNING the GS3 within the 14 days (I'm fully aware that the day you purchase it is counted as day ONE).... Go back to my EVO for a few days until the Note W is released ...

On the 25th is it ALL sales channels or just Sprint Stores and telesales or what will be the availability?

I hate to be like this but its what I have to live with and use for the next 22 months. I have never returned a phone in the 14 + years that I have been with Sprint .. I didnt realize the Note 2 was going to be released so soon... I needed a phone quickly and if I knew on the 10th when I got the GS3 it was going to be on the 25Th I would of waited ... thank god that I am still within the 14 days...

no SVDO? I'll pass this one.

Good thing is it's an international phone but no data during on the voice calls which most of sprint's LTE phones support the voice and data at the same time now. This leaves iPhone 5 and Note2 on my skip list.

It would be nice if they'd make something like this with straight Android JB as the OS, none of that extra junk!
