Samsung Galaxy Note II now available on T-Mobile, coming soon to Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular


Samsung’s US Galaxy Note II event is right around the corner now (at the time of writing this, it’s mere moments away), and the device has finally been pegged with release date and pricing info for five of the biggest carriers in the US: T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and US Cellular.

T-Mobile is the only carrier selling the 5.5-inch Note II right this moment, where it’s available for a whopping $370 on a two-year contract. Off-contract, it’s $649. The other carriers in the US slated to carry the Note II are expected to release the device within next couple days to two weeks from now. Here’s how it breaks down:

  • T-Mobile: $370 on a two-year contract, available now
  • Verizon: $299 on a two-year contract, available November 27th
  • AT&T: $299 on a two-year contract, available November 9
  • Sprint: $299 on a two-year contract, available October 25
  • US Cellular: $299 on a two-year contract, available October 26

In case you need a refresher, the Samsung Galaxy Note II comes with a 5.5-inch non-Pentile Super AMOLED display, quad-core Exynos processor, 8-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, NFC, Android 4.1, a 3,100mAh battery and of course, S Pen functionality.

We’ll be bringing you much more on the Note II in the next couple days. For now, check out the Samsung promotional video below. Anyone plan on getting a Note II?

    Going to check it out once it is available on verizon. Looks like an awesome phone

    • Galen20K

      minus the god awful Verizon branding on the center home button…

      • Gary

        Agreed – will be considering this for my next phone (soon), but need to see how it feels in my hand. The branding is a definite turn-off, though.

    • Richard Yarrell

      Verizon is a very sad conclusion. They always feel the need to be different from every other carrier. Why change the cosmetics of the device with all that crappy childish unnecessary branding??. I feel sorry for those folks on Verizon. Verizon is nothing but a bunch of bumbling clueless fools. They do this to make this device uglier than those crappy Droid Razr Maxx devices. Everyone knows all Verizon cares about is there Droid devices bet they would never do that to Motorola. Piss on Verizon.

        “Verizon is nothing but a bunch of bumbling clueless fools.” Says the “clueless fool” who “knew” Verizon’s *low* frequency LTE doesn’t penetrate buildings well. No, that’s high frequencies like Sprint’s failed Wimax. Says the “clueless fool” who couldn’t even root his Galaxy Nexus after “looking in to it” for upwards of 2 months, despite there being several one-click root programs out there.
        “They do this to make this device uglier than those crappy Droid Razr Maxx devices.” You just now figured that out? The Droid phones are what Verizon is known for. Not Samsung’s Galaxy S line. You really expect Verizon to promote anything other than it’s flagship line?

        • veracu

          Word. Not giving up unlimited data with 4g lte anytime soon. Root, tether, torrent downloads all day. Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. But yes branding blows, oh well. I just hope we see a Verizon nexus again.

      • redraider133

        why do you feel the need to bash the platform that you use dick? I mean it is bad enough the isheep try to bash android but you do nothing but whine about other phones on carriers that do not pertain or affect you in anyway. It is android so maybe you should think about it next time. Go bash apple users or something but quit being a clown on this site.

  • T-droid

    Absolute rip off

    It is $420 with $50 mail in Rebate and 2 year contract!

    Just buy this off contract for $600

  • MyMilan

    I was going to get one but decided not to. Just not worth the price. Better options out there. However it is a much better ad than the one samslum made for the GSIII.

  • R.S

    I’ll probably stop by and check it out. However, if I get one, I’ll probably wait a month or two and buy it from Wal-Mart or Sam’s Club. That’s what I did last year. I purchased my Galaxy S II from Sam’s Club

    • R.S

      Grrrrr, while trying to close the State Farm ad, I accidentally clicked on submit.

      I purchased my Galaxy S II from Sam’s Club last December for $100, on sale, while T-Mobile still had it at regular price.

  • virexed

    Picked mine up this morning. Came out to around $450 out the door. I didn’t mind the price because this has been teasing me since it was announced. So far so good. Awesome phone.

    • Richard Yarrell

      Will be picking mines up November 1st. Tmobile is the best place for the use of this device. You want to enjoy the benefits of unlimited usage this device deserves to be unleashed in that manner. Not on some crappy shared data plan. Nothing beats the Galaxy Note 2 for the reminder of the next 180 days. Features alone the Note 2 makes all devices look pretty stupid.. I am pretty sure the typical androidandme trolls will respond to my post as always and my response to them is stop trolling and start buying my friends cause I always buy mines and that will always be.

      • squiddy20

        “start buying my friends cause I always buy mines and that will always be.” Sad that you brag about this and the amount of phones you’ve owned over the past 2 and a half years (6 or so) as if it’s something to be proud of. All you’ve ever bought (not “brought” as you so stupidly spell it), are $200-$350 *carrier subsidized* phones. The sad fact is, of those 6 or so phones you’ve “owned”, 2 you’ve had for no more than 3 weeks, well within the (then) 30 day return period. It’s hilarious that you think you’re “rolling with the big boys” or “made of money” just because you can buy a few cell phones a year.

    • johhny

      where did you pick it up at that price? getting one as well but don’t want to lose my unlimited data.

  • sunrise

    Tmo come on. You may have slightly lower monthly rates, but you also have less coverage.

    With tax and before the rebate the phone costs over $400? Your monthly rates don’t justify your recent trend in pricing subsidized phones insanely high.
    Are you trying to lose more customers to your competitors?

    • clocinnorcal

      Tmobile doesn’t attach as much subsidy anymore as they used to like the other Big 3 competitors. Also, they dropped the prices on their plans as they don’t have as much subsidy attached to that either. Their business model highly revolves around value. Another example is how they finance you a phone over a 20 month period, you get a value plan and add $20 a month for the finance cost but there is no contract. Of course you have to make up the difference in full price with a down payment.

      Compare similar plans with Verizon or ATT and you will see what I mean.

      • sunrise

        I believe you are mistaken. As far as I remember the Value Plans do require a two year contract.

        Pay full price for my own phone and still sign a two year contract. This is why I never liked the Value Plans.

        • Mark

          eh, you pay full price for any plan you go with. It’s called a phone subsidy. Carriers tell you you’re getting a discount, but $20-$30 of the rate plan is charged for the discount. After 20 months other carriers continue to charge, but not on a value plan.

        • clocinnorcal

          @ sunrise Right! You can sign a contract and pay the “not as subsidized” price for a phone and get a cheaper, than the other 3 companies, plans. Or you can get a cheap plan and finance your phone over a 20 month time period without signing a contract.

  • Revalence

    Verizon had to screw up and include that ugly logo on the home button… -_-

  • Mark

    If you’re on the right contract with T-Mobile it’s only $249

  • Mark

    Why’d my comment get deleted? anyways, as I said, it’s $250 plus tax on their value plan. Just depends on what plan you’re on.

  • www.phonewbie.com

    Wirely Friends has it for $249.99.

  • SGB101

    That price is a bit steep. This phone is a little more expensive than the rest here also.

    One x and sgs3 are free and £36pm ($54)all in for two years

    The note two is free and £46pm ($66) all in. Which I thought was a bit steep.

    Comes in at £1104 ($1584) all in over two years.

    Prises based on t mobile uk.

  • Shawn

    I’ve had mine, tit-grey international version using at&t, for about a month now. It’s an awesome phone! Had the first note also. For those of you on fence, you won’t be disappointed. Prepare for non-stop curiosity from others. Especially Iphone users.

    • iamXiV92a

      Same reaction when I had my Dell Streak – “Is that a phone?!?” Loved that phablet

  • LittleGreenDude

    LeBron James has one! :D

    • RobBull75

      Lebronda having one almost makes me want to get an iPhone…almost ;)

  • Nathan D.

    Woho my carrier got it first :-) even though it got the first one last, quit the turn around.

  • Tbag

    uhh the article title is wrong. Sprint already has it…..its not coming soon

  • mbt203
