U.S. Cellular has announced that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be on store shelves starting October 26 (this Friday), and that tomorrow is the last day for preorder. Those that have already been ordered will be shipping tomorrow.  The timing doesn't come as much of a surprise since Sprint's launch is looking similar

T-Mobile is sold out, sprint when they get it might be on back order but hopefully not. Next week for me if best buy get it any cheaper. Also they only had it in grey. No white was available Also, hope this isn't the case for other carrier's

I'm glad T-Mobile is sold out. It forces me to wait until after the 29th before I make any rash decisions.

You realize the U.S. Cellular version is CDMA, right? So this part --- Network: 3G: HSPA+ 21Mbps (HSDPA 21Mbps / HSUPA 5.76Mbps); --- is entirely incorrect.

Chocu1a says:

Right. They are cdma. They also recently launched their 4g lte network.

piizzadude says:

Just because you cannot use it doesnt mean it is there. Look at a bunch of the phones on VZW. They can handle GSM, they just have them turned off

roflitsowens says:

Right, but for a U.S. Cellular launch, it's almost entirely irrelevant. Only time it'll be relevant is when traveling internationally. U.S. Cellular in combination with Samsung will never allow this device to be used in the US on another carrier.
