qi wireless charging?

I just got the note 2 on Verizon and it looks as though the back plate is already qi wireless charging ready...? I haven't been able to actually place it on a charging pad yet to verify but is this the case? Do the Verizon models come with it?
No, it does not ship with qi wireless charging.
What’s more the tabs for the wireless add-on are removed from the Verizon version. If you want to add, it requires disassembly and cutting or soldering to connect. ☹️

ISIS not compatable in the NOTE II

HAS anyone from the SLC, Utah or Austin, TX area tried to download and use the "NEW" ISIS program? It allows the user to load the credit cards to the phone and it becomes the card. I can download it to the phone, but it says Verizon is not compatible. It works on the Galaxy III S... It also works on the NOTE with T-mobile and Sprint... I spent 3-4 hours at the Verizon Store and with Tech support on the phone and could not get it working... Before I take it in and get a new phone, I need to know if it's the phone or just not compatible... I don't want to reload all the apps again... 👀 Let me know all
Purchased my Galaxy Note II on December 1st. I am in the Salt Lake City area. A few days later, I downloaded the ISIS app and tried to run it. Got an error that said I needed a different SIM card in the phone. Went back to the Verizon Wireless s...

While I understand the wish list for better build look and feel, I become disappointed in the overlook of the plastic material.

Rather a resin/vinyl material, it is the same material used in safety helmets. Does this make it lack durability? The polycarbonate material absorbs impact far better than stiffer material. This means it protects the cargo inside much better. Thus why they use this material. When insurance claims are made on phones, I think it is far less expensive to repair and refurbish a handset where the inner components haven't been sacrificed due to hard impact. As cars are made to absorb impact to protect the occupants. It is cheaper to total a vehicle rather than pay out very expensive health and medical insurance.

I agree with you 100%.

I have this device on Sprint and yes plasticy does describe the feel a bit slick for my taste but the specs far outweigh this skin deep review.

This phone makes for a great daily driver, the size does take a bit getting ...
I used to think the same thing about the build until I got one. When I use it, I'm not thinking about the image of it all, I tend to be focused on the use of it. With the cost to replace device if it is damages being on the high side, I bought a sho...

Couldn't help but notice one of the selling points on the Sammy website for their custom case with the flip cover is you don't have to worry about your face hitting any of the buttons on the screen? WTH? I thought this was a thing of the past? Or am I overreacting-lol?

Latest release date of all carriers in the US

due to putting their logo on the button. 🤣
Wow, and to deface such an elegant device with that obnoxious branding. That would be reason enough to get it from an alternate carrier (as if their anti consumer policies and their preditory billing practices were not enough as is).

Another Explanation

I guess no one noticed that the release date was conveniently one day after Cyber Monday, making it impossible for anyone to get the phone in Amazon Wireless's inevitably awesome Cyber Monday sale. Yes, Verizon customers wanting a Note II will be sure to pay retail prices for theirs.

This makes it worth the wait!

Not network connectivity. Not processing power. Not software. Not build quality. Not materials or durability. North battery life. Not even the call quality matters as much as branding.
