Samsung Galaxy Note 3 LTE/4G N9005 International

Does any one know what are the differences between these models?

Are these codes only carrier specific bloatware or are the hardware/electronics/radios different?

If I root the phone, are they all the same?

my first battery for note but it was defective

My Note 3 battery was totally dead bcz I dropped it into water, by accident. So I did some research and compare, ordered a replacement from mpj. Received it a week later but this battery, which suppose to be an extended one, is not an improvement---not lasting even one full day. Upon hearing about my experience, they sent me a new battery to exchange for the first one. Waited another week, and thankfully the new one works wonderfully and holds a charge as it should.

help fixing s3 sound issue

Hi, I got a galaxy S3 one year before but I am not playing a lot with it now--- mainly using for calling and musics. It suddenly froze, touch screen won’t work yesterday. I had to remove my mpj extended battery purchased several months ago, make some rest and then turned on. It was on but began producing sounds like beep. I turned off the phone and left it aside. Tried to turn on again today but same weird sound. What should I do??? Many thanks!

why galaxy nexus udate to 4.2 battery drain horrible

I own a Galaxy Nexus worked really great - great battery life especially when i installed my 5000 extended battery from mpj, easily last a day and night even played a lots of data...until the update. I was getting so frustrated with it, about 30% more of the battery had drained while it was supposedly asleep. It ended up being on the charger more than it was in my hands.After dealing with the battery life, i did factory reset and reverted back to the original system. It is as if I have my fresh out of the box.

Want to know why update causing battery drain????

abt i9200 mega 6.3 battery life

I have a Galaxy i9200 and it do have terrible battery lives! My battery seems to last about 12 hours...that's it!!
I have to charge mine every night, i'm up at 6am, leave the house at 7am to start work at 8am and I usually put it on charge again in the car for the hour drive to work, or I know the juice will probably run out before I finish work at 6pm!.

I then have to charge again it on the drive home, or it won't last the evening.
I hardly use my phone with only one stock battery whilst i'm at work,so i also use an extended battery bought from MPJ, I also shut down apps when not using them and don't let my facebook or email update automatically, and now the battery life leaves to be desired!.

In the market for a new phone!!!

I currently have the iPhone 5 but it is becoming annoying with its constant freezing. I am looking into either the note 2 or s4.

Which of the two would be more reliable for the long haul?

Opinions please!!

Thank you. 😁

Recommend updating to Jelly Bean for G S II???????????

For those out there who have a Samsung Galaxy S II do you recommend doing the update to the latest Android OS? Awhile back several in this and other PS forums advised against my doing the upgrade because of crashing issues but my phone is starting to act really funky on 2.3.6 and the T-Mobile rep said I really need to do the upgrade. Thoughts? Recommendations? Suggestions?

Also, does anyone know if have a security program installed (i.e., Bitdefender, Lookout, etc.,) causes a problem and should be uninstalled before attempting the upgrade?

Finally, in general how long does the upgrade take via Kies?

Samsung Vitality/admire cell phone

I bought this phone used & locally from a private party.

It is for Cricket. I still have 2 months left on my tmobile contract. So when my contract with tmobile expires, I MIGHT decide to switch to cricket, or another carrier.

I know the vitality works cause it is in pristine condition.
I have been using the wifi too.

But even though I got the phone with the previous owners info erased, there is something that was not erased.
It is his former phone number in the settings part
(about phone>status>my phone number).

I redid a reset on the phone myself but it wont clear out his former phone number.
So in the event that I choose to stay with tmobile longer, I may end up selling this phone. But, whether I keep it or sell it, ...
