    real quick because I need to call back... I had my S3 stolen :( LOVED IT!!! Got it a year ago, it was White 32 gig (I paid full price because I have a good plan)Now insurance screwed me and didnt ship today as promised... so they are telling me they don't have 32 white anymore and are offing me the Note as a courtesy... I need to call back soon with a decision if I want it tomorrow. I know NOTHING about the Note except that it has a bigger screen (which I would love) and is considered a better phone from some. If I want I can get the 16 gig S3 too.What do I do? Tell me I will be OK with the note??? HELP!! I am running to the store to look at it but you guys know more!!!

    I traded my s3 for a note 2 and LOVE IT! the s pen is super cool and the larger screen is really nice as I have larger hands... If nothing else you can always sell the note 2 for more than enough to get another S3........

    If they're giving you a Note 2 then go for it but not the original Note. If they offer you the original Note, then just take the 16GB S3.

    They are offering a Note 2 right....not a Note 1.... I have the 2, wife has the S3. Both are very similar and both rock. I will never have a small screen phone again.

    FYI, Verizon Note 2's are only 16 gig.

    The Note 2 is a great phone and if you can get it for free then I'd go for it. It's a great phone that I considered upgrading to, but opted for the s4 instead.

    I'm sure you'll like it. You should notice a difference with all that power under the Note II and I hear the battery life is amazing. It'll take some getting used to, but I've heard many who switch can't deal with a smaller phone now:D
