Hi guys. I am a big technology dunce, so I am sure that this is a stupid question. I recently switched to Straight Talk and bought the Tmobile SIM for my Mytouch 4G slide, but the phone is unlocked because I needed to use it overseas. I now want to buy a Note II on ebay.
I bought a unlocked and rooted Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in February. It has never given me any trouble until today. It started telling me TouchWiz has stopped, I looked it up and most people said it was fixed with a factory reset. Not thinking about my unlocked phone...I did it.
I am a noob and need help with my phone. I have factory unlocked a Galaxy Note 2 SGH-I317 from AT&T and am using the straight talk network. The main problem I am having is that the phone will not send or receive MMS and the data is very slow. What do I need to do to be able to use the phone at full capacity, and get rid of all the AT&T b.s apps; with out losing the stock functionality.
I know that the Verizon 8X is factory unlocked, and is usable on AT&T and T-Mobile in the States, but what about England? I'm going to London in a couple of months and am curious if this device has any of the bands needed for a prepaid SIM in the UK. If so, what prepaid carriers would work?
