Verizon always puts there crap bloatware on phones. Why would the note 2 be any different? The calendar widget that comes on the phone is the same you just have to tap on the top of the widget and it will bring up what you are looking for and yes the s pen works with it.Originally Posted by zerodip
When I mentioned that the other carriers had these features and questioned why their version didn't, the tech support woman I spoke to at Verizon said that these features may be put in an update in the future and that they may have removed them because they could have conflicts with something in their version. Sure... what would it conflict with? Maybe all the bloatware they put on the phone?
Like PC, I thought blocking mode was an awesome feature and do not see at all why they would have removed it. Makes zero sense. Hell, if they just told me that they removed the features because "**** you, we already have your money," I'd prefer that to no real answer and just utter confusion.
As for the widget, that's not what Samsung advertized and it's not the calendar widget on the international version and other carriers. The whole point of a widget is to let you interact with the app without having to go into an app. I don't want a glorified shortcut, I'd like the S-Planner widget that was advertized. Sigh. This or the other features that are missing may not bother others, but they were a big part of why I bought the phone. Even if they weren't, again, the principal of the thing... just don't think there is any excusing of Verizon here.
Verizon does what they want. And the bad thing is is that if you want the best network then you have to deal with it. Every time Verizon ticks me off I find someone who can not get any reception because there network sucks.Originally Posted by zerodip
Oh well, what's done is done... going to enjoy everything else the phone has to offer. Like I said, it's an incredible phone and I am happy with it otherwise. Just a heads up to everyone starting to get theirs so they don't end up disappointed when they do.

Does anybody know what that symbol is that's circled? Sorry about the pic the app I used to be able to circle it wouldn't just let me circle it had to make the pic all funky.
