Yes it looks great, but the case is covering the mic and when I make calls while using the case, the person on the other line can't hear me clearly so it's kind of sitting in my shelf at the moment.

The reason I got the brown case (Verus) is because of the speaker hole. I was thinking of getting other cases but most of them don't have this hole and I find it really convenient to have this feature so you won't need to flip over the case whenever taking calls.

i like the one on the left...how much are these anyways?

The main issue I have is the Straight Talk data service I am using does not work with the XXLP1 radio modem used with Chinese leaked ICS rom.
I know this because when I revert back to my GB Rocket v22 rom, it uses the XXLA4 modem radio and Straight Talk data service work with 2-5Mbps download speeds as opposed to a consistent 9kbps DL with the ICS LP1 radio. Yes, 9kbps!! WTH!!
Right now, this ICS bandwagon is still new so I will have to revisit this rom along with other roms that can work with the Straight Talk service.

I am curious what carrier service are you using with your GNote in California and your data DL speeds?

Mabuhay y'all!!!

I am unfortunately using T-Mobile coming from a galaxy s2 so I'm only getting T-Mobile's edge speeds at the moment.

I tested and used a T-Mobile Sim for about 1 day. Not fast enough for data IMO.
If I can't stream Netflix movies on the GNote, the data speeds are tooooo slooowwww...

Dude, do yourself a favor and get on the Straight Talk service.

Should be roughly about 1500 in Philippine pesos or 45 SGD.

Hello guys!

By the way, if you are experimenting with phone modems, the best modem for the Philippines is the XXLB1 (got around 5mbps speeds on Makati area) and the XXLA3. however, I am experiencing some troubles with XXLA3 such as losing the ability to send and receive text messages from time to time.

I am using RocketRom v22. XXLA4 comes by default on RocketRom and so far it's not giving me good speeds.

If you have other tests, share it here.

This is the modem thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1423396

Thanks for the referral. I just found out locally I can choose between them, Red Pocket, and H20 Wireless as prepaid carriers who use At$t networks.
