    As much as I love my GN2, it is driving me crazy as I keep finding that my stock Camera & Gallery apps are corrupted. I went into the Gallery to look at photos that were showing up fine, and suddenly all I see are my movies and black/blank icons in the gallery where all the pictures were (but the little number still shows how many pictures are there although you can't see them anymore). If I try to then take additional pictures with the stock camera I still get nothing in the gallery but the movies.

    I then went into the file management app to check the pictures and they are all still on my SD card and show fine through that app. I tried clearing the cache AND data of both the stock camera and the gallery app but that didn't help. I then tried a restart and pulled the battery out along with removing and replacing my SD card and SIM card but that did nothing either. I then called Verizon who had no ideas so they put me on a 3-way call with them & Samsung and they asked me to put the phone in Safe Mode (where only the basic app are loaded) but that didn't help either! Their next suggestion of course was a "factory data reset" which can be very painful...

    This was all during the first time that it happened, and I thought that it might be from one particular app/game that was causing it, so I deleted that app but still had to perform a Factory Data Reset to get the camera & gallery working. Of course a few hours later it happened again!!!!

    I don't believe it is the SD card since I have tons of other data on the 64GB card and all the other data works fine (music, movies, game data, docs, etc. all load fine). I have tried other camera and picture apps from the Google Play Store/market and they all work fine too. This is driving me nuts so I felt I had to reach out to the tech support folks who has always been more helpful and informative than VZW and that's been you all. I've gotten more problems resolved here in the forums over the years than anywhere. Have any of you run into this?

    I sure hope one of you has the answer to this one. I love this phone, but I am sick of dealing with resetting it, and I hate not having my stock apps working. If I can ever get everything loaded on it and set up like I want, I plan to make a full TB backup and a Nandroid backup too (if Rom Manager ever supports the VZW Note 2).

    PLEASE HELP! Thanks.
