    Roms

    I personally use and have settled with CleanRom 1.6. I tried Jelly Beans and didn't have a problem with it at all. Highly recommend both. Check out: Verizon Galaxy Note 3 Android Development - xda-developers I've seen people report really good battery life with BajaRom as well.

    Did your Note 3 come with a SD card?

    Yeah mine didn't come with. I remember back in the day when you'd buy old cameras and they'd come with 128mb sd cards :P

    To Get note 3 or wait for Note 4

    Get the Note 3 on the new Edge plan, upgrade to the Note 4 in a year. :P (comment applies to Verizon Wireless).

    mms to SD card.

    Thanks for the info. Had no idea I could move it to SD (other than manually through Root Explorer). Was backing it to Google+ then deleting it. lol. Very cool!

    Upgrade to Note 3??...

    Good to hear 4shlr! I've been loving the phone and even rooted it - having a blast with the thing. It's going to be my daily driver for many years - well with the Edge plan, maybe not! lol.

    Upgrade disaster!

    I rooted last week and recently changed a Rom and realized that my 2 factor authentication was OFF. So I turned it on only to have it fail on the syncing and constantly asking me for my credentials. I freaked out wondering what happened thinking maybe the Rom didn't support two factor...

    Android 4.4 breaks sd card, how to avoid getting the update

    I come from the Droid 1 days - I always heard how (at least back then) how the SD card was no different from internal memory. I guess it's different now? I've been an Apple User (yes I feel terrible) for the last 3 years and this is my first Android phone since then. First thing I did with my...

    Upgrade to Note 3??...

    Man... the HTC Thunderbolt... lol that was a phone. I remember it like yesterday. That thing was a beast - the first day it came out I got it and the Blockbuster app malfunctioned downloading GIGS of thumbnails for movies draining the battery in 2-3 hours with NO WAY to stop it - we all had...

    Upgrade to Note 3??...

    Picture of my Note 3 overnight for those interested - it almost flatlined out! With my normal light usage I could see this phone lasting days and days on a charge. <drool> :)

    Upgrade to Note 3??...

    I would definitely give it a try. Reactivate your old thunderbolt's IMEI on your line - let it sit for a day, then go in and try to do the early upgrade. BAM you get to keep the Maxx. Wouldn't hurt to try. My wife and I had to trade in our Moto X and iPhone 4s. Imo still worth it because now I...

    Upgrade to Note 3??...

    With Power Saver On I don't seem to get THAT much more battery life out of the phone with my heavy usage (I'm a really light user). The phone visibly lags when scrolling with Power Saver on so I'll probably keep that off. Pretty happy with the battery usage tho.

    Upgrade to Note 3??...

    Second day with battery testing. Similar results tho I definitely didn't use it AS much as before. Only difference? I had Power Saver OFF. Seems to me to be very identical.

    Battery

    Yep, yesterday with Power Saver on - with 3 hours of screen on time and 14.5 hours off the charger = 62%. I'm very impressed by this phone. I have everything running full bore today (power saver off) but I'm using it a lot less and I'm at 89% with 6 hours off charger and 40min of screen on time.

    Upgrade to Note 3??...

    Yep, I think you're right. I was looking at my old LTE speedtests and I got 14-19mbps down with 10+mbps up. Now I'm getting 43+mbps down and no cellular reception showing in the battery usage. Interesting!

    Note 3 4G network speeds OMG!

    Yeah you're right. I'm looking at my old speed tests and I was getting 15-16 down and 10 up. So getting 43+mbps down consistently now must be using that new radio.

    Note 3 4G network speeds OMG!

    Very jealous :D At my work next to a Verizon tower - only getting 43.78mbps down and 13.60mbps up :) Faster than I'd never need but more speed the better, right?

    Upgrade to Note 3??...

    This... This... This... -- THIS is why I upgraded now even though I got my Moto X in 11/11/13. :) With the edge program I can get a new phone every year. Yeah I pay a little more for it but I'm happy :) lol.
