Unified Remote could satisfy your desire in another way. It can make your Note run as a touch pad and as soon as you have a stylus pen you can open Photoshop on your PC and start painting in it with your stylus. Unified remote has a free and a full version.

Samsung lists the HDMI Smart Adapter on their website as being compatible with the Galaxy Note.

I would suggest flashing the stock ICS (or Gingerbread, if you prefer) ROM via Odin. Full instructions here. Get the official image from http://www.sammobile.com/firmware/ (search for "N7000" and select the download for the appropriate region.) Download and install the USB drivers (for 32 bit or 64 bit Windows) Download the Odin tool. Extract the contents ...

Not in the USA. Virgin Mobile USA's network is CDMA, while the Galaxy Note is a GSM phone. Virgin Mobile UK is a GSM network, so Galaxy Note will work on it. Although depending on whether the phone and the carrier use the same frequencies for 3G, you may only get 2G speeds.

The "Graffiti" writing technology from the old PalmOS devices is available for Android now, and supports letter at a time text input with a stylus (or presumably a finger). Graffiti for Android. However, something like DioPen or PenReader seems to be more what you're after. They both have very mixed reviews, and do seem to be better on some devices than ...

Quadrant is not a very good benchmark, beacuse the results vary a lot. Try running it four times in a row and you will be surprised. Antutu benchmark is much more reliable. Don't worry about benchmarks though, they don't tell the whole story on real performance of the device anyway.

I notice this annoyance too. Looks like the best solution is to enable volume key text resizing, and leave it enabled. Once you disable it, the Messages app resets the text size to the huge (on the Galaxy Note, that is) font/bubble size. This won't be noticeable on other phones; the real cause is that the GNote is big, which is what all GNote owners like ...

Looking a bit further I discovered that I have to click 7 times on Build number on phone details to enable the Developer settings.

It won't fit, The Note 2 batteries are physically larger than the Note 1's battery slots. Your best bet is finding a good third-party extended battery.

Mine was the Yahoo app. It was driving me mad. Nothing in the status bar, just a two-tone ding-ding. All the notification boxes in the app were unticked but it was still dinging. Go to the app, - Options - Account settings - Notification Settings - Choose sound. If you touch the "Yahoo! Default" I bet you hear the two-tone ding. Select "No sound". I haven't ...

JuiceDefender can do this. It also can turn off data completely, and turn it on every 5 minutes or so to let stuff sync.

This may be a symptom of the Swype application data becoming corrupted following a hardware upgrade. To resolve this, go into Settings > Manage Applications > All > Swype and clear the application data. Then force the Swype service to restart.

This issue solved itself over time with no changes needed.

You could perhaps download a font from the Google play store? I've seen some fonts packs up there. e.g. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.develop.plugin.font&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5kZXZlbG9wLnBsdWdpbi5mb250Il0. Some of these will more than likely require your device be rooted. Or you can change the size of your ...

I am having this same problem on my HTC thunderbolt. The way to fix it is to go into settings - applications and then stop the swype application. After you can set your keyboard to swype again and it will work. There is probably a bug in the newest version.

I had the same behaviour, related to frequent "driving mode" madness. I don't know if the driving mode is an effect of the same cause or not, but when one stopped the other did too. What I did to stop it (some might be BS, but It didn't do it a second time, so I can't find out what was the help) Dry it off (some rain might have gotten into the USB port) ...

Use Galaxy Note as digitizer or graphics tablet for PC (small project of mine) - maybe this could be relevant, but not exactly what you are looking for. But I found this post based on my search query, so maybe it could be interesting to someone else.

There's a keyboard better that that of Blackberry: SwiftKey X. Believe me, you'll love its Artificial Intelligence based suggestions. It learns from your typing habits to suggest you better. And, it can learn from Twitter, Facebook, Gmail and RSS Feed too (Quick Learning).

As far as I know the stylus used with the Galaxy Note is special and works only with this particular device, so using that input method with different phones would mean to use the finger instead. Having tried the handwriting recognition of the Note I found that it is not quite as good as it seemed on first glance and I went back to using "Graffiti for ...

At first, there's a current Hardbrick warning and a tool to diagnose this for the Galaxy Note (and other Samsung devices). Here's the Galaxy Note N7000 CM9 team's current issue list, it doesn't mention missing S-Pen functionality (unlike an experimental build #1) so I guess it's fixed. The CM9 alpha for N7000 announcement on XDA also mentions S-Pen ...

If you would like something on your screen in addition to the notification in your notification bar, I would suggest using something like GoSMS with WidgetLocker. If I'm correct in your understanding, this will do what you want: Set up WidgetLocker to be your unlock screen and then place a GoSMS messaging widget on your lock screen, so you can read the ...

That sounds like a known problem updating apps which were moved to the SD-Card using App2SD. It does not always happen -- but if it does, a helpful work-around is: move the app back to internal memory run the update (should work now) move the app to SD again (optional -- if you want it to be on the external SD)

Go to Settings -> Security -> Screen lock, enter the PIN once more and select Slide (or what ever you had before).

No, this isn't possible. The Galaxy Note is a GSM phone whereas Virgin Mobile USA is a CDMA network (it is a subsidiary of Sprint). The two are not compatible. In addition to this, CDMA carriers typically only activate phones that are specifically branded for their networks, so you can't even use a Sprint phone on Virgin unless you "know a guy" or find a ...
