it should work normally like any other phone!
how much did you get it for with taxes and shipping and all .... ?
Anyone using a Galaxy Note N7000 on Fido? Any issues using it? I just bought the unlocked version on E-bay and am picking it up Saturday. Thanks in advance.
it will work, but you wont get the LTE once Fido Launch it.
To get LTE you have to get the Note i717.
Yeah I chose the N7000 for the better battery life, better processor chip and the fact I don't have to get it unlocked. I paid $519 for it shipped to a friend's house in NY.
As for the battery life, it is much better on 2.3.6 vs 4.0.3...... You may also find that your phones regional code is KOR, in which case you will NEVER be able to update your phone until you perform a few little tricks to change the code to Germany (I chose that one because they get everything first). I am one of the very few people in Canada with ICS on an N7000.
With ICS the battery drain is much higher and there are bugs to work out.
PS. Do NOT turn your screen brightness up and then set your screen off timer to 30 minutes lol.... AMOLED will burn the current screen permanently and you will forever see the ghost of that screen when viewing other pages. The worse burn in is from the status bar at the top. When will they ever wake up and stop making the bar black and the characters white on an AMOLED phone... its a recipe for ugly burn ins. Anyway, mark my words, you will see.
In display/display type, select "Dynamic", makes for a beautiful screen full of perfect color.
i used both phones the i717r and the N7000,
i717R is a faste processor, and if you turn off LTE on the i717 your battery will last same as the the N7000.
The i717 is clocked higher just to match the slightly lower clocked N7000. That means the chip in i717 is not really an efficient chip if it needs to be bumped in speed to match its predecessor. And it's only 100MHz faster... Is anyone really going to notice a difference in real-life? I don't think so. And benchmarks show the lower clock is better than the faster clock. So faster processor doesn't necessarily mean better. But benchmarks don't mean squat in real-life practice. Just as long as it works, no complaints...
Also the N7000 has a built-in video editor app that I read is not available with the i717 due to hardware compatibility. Don't know how useful that is, but just another random thought thrown out there.
I have the i717R from Rogers and didn't need to unlock the phone. It worked straight out of the box and I feel a little more comfortable with warranty backing on a product.
