There are two parts to your question
a) Factory reset removes user data including apps installed by the user on phone. Since your device is rooted, you can see that everything in /data
and /data/data will be wiped.
b) Factory reset does not flash stock ROM. Since you have deleted preloaded apps, they will not be restored. If you want ...
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.
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.

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.
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 ...
Samsung devices can usually be forced into download mode using a JIG. They are pretty simple and cheap to make. If your device has been soft-bricked this will almost always work.
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 ...
XDA Developers have published on May 10, 2012 an article regarding the update of GB ROM to ICS:

If you’re looking to install an ICS AOSP ROM on your Note, there's an article published on April 24, 2012:

On both you'll find the step by ...
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 ...
When you are in contacts you have to edit your contact list by importing or exporting contacts. There's nothing on the screen to indicate how to do this but pull up the menu by pressing the icon on the very bottom left of the phone (on the note3 this is not on the screen but on the frame around the screen) and then you can click on import/export and move ...
I had the same problem, did everything I could think of. Finally last night, I decided to try something different. I ran Kies in "Compatibility Mode for XP SP3" it took forever, left the phone plugged in while I went to bed, woke up this morning with 4.1 finally on it.
I run a Windows 7 Premium Home 64bit. Not sure if this will help with everyone's ...
You could perhaps download a font from the Google play store? I've seen some fonts packs up there.
Some of these will more than likely require your device be rooted.
Or you can change the size of your ...

Assuming an Android version of 3.1+, external drives should be supported via USB host mode by most devices -- see Compro01's comments below:
Not all devices support USB host mode, 3.1+ or not. Chainfire has a nice app to test compatability (and an extensive database of reports from that app on which devices work and which don't).
Also, if we're talking ...
After a lot of Googling around, I found 2 possible solutions:
Hardware solution: Kensington Noise Reducing AUX Audio Cable - haven't tried it myself. Yet some guys at android central report it worked for them.
Software solution: Aux Noise Filter app - Tried it on my Galaxy Note. Works like a charm.
This answer is credited to user abhioxic, who came up with the solution in a comment.
Clearing the cache and data from the Clock app resolved the issue. After clearing the cache and data, the old alarms were removed (data loss) but new alarms ring properly.
This appears to be an undocumented feature of Note 7 as per this XDA thread Samsung factory restore after inserting SIM for the first time on GN7 by ninja0n3
OP here faced the same problem and reproduced the chat transcript with Samsung help . Extracts:

There's a contradiction in terms: a popup from Google would never speak of viruses on Android, as there are none (i.e. no Android viruses, though there's enough of Android malware).
That looks more like malvertizing, especially as it asks you to "install some app". Do not follow that advice, do not install that app. The appearance you describe is a known ...

It seems that clearing G camera cache can help temporarily. It seems to be phone issue and I would suggest that you should raise this issue in Samsung forum or seek help from Samsung service center.

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.
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 ...
