You cannot get it on Pay as you go, and the only way to get it sim free through the retailers is to pay top whack at 999 at a Samsung store or go for a pay monthly contract with EE for a min. of 12 months. Online the best bet in the UK with all the taxes paid etc. is at prepaymania.co.uk at 563 or chance it on eBay and they're currently fetching about 510 but you'll need to buy an unlock code on top of this. So......as of today in the UK that's the best you'll get for the LTE Note II

walked away from 1 in my local orange shop today as they only had the white,, i wanted titanium,,,
The offer was as i have stated in other posts... 450 for the handset on ORANGE payg.... with a mandatory 10 top up.....

would of had that today if i could stomach the white... which i cant.... so a wait till titanium stock comes in :0(

If you STILL dont believe me... just go look on the orange website..... thewy have it listed there for sale on PAYG for 499 although titanium out of stock there too....) factor in 30 quidco or topcashback and its 470 online..

There can never be an "LTE" standard because of all the bands in use worldwide. A "standard" in the UK is worthless anywhere else. HSPA will continue to be the "roaming" standard until a single LTE radio is capable of supporting this laundry list of bands. The Galaxy Note 10 will be out by then.

Three's customer service folk don't have a single bloody clue between them. I was told the exact same bull**** about their Note 2 being 4G compatible. I ended up taking the N7105 with t-mobile, but I'm sending it back because t-mobile simply don't compare to Three in my area. I don't know what to do now! I want the N7105 with Three, preferably without ever having to speak with a Three rep ever again.

Are you referring to the post by Gwelmor ?
I pretty much came to the conclusion the Guy was saying 999 & no cheaper was posting that as a kind of "spoof" post to justify what he is selling them on for.
Its quite a common thing, he only posted once on XDA & there's been an add running on Birmingham Gumtree saying the same, ie that they are 999 & he can sell you one for alot less.
Here's the add its possibly the same person..

Now there's the thing. ..Three and tmobile share most the sites and the antenna on the sites and as they run from the same frequency then coverage should be the same or at least very similar.

Well I have just got the 7105 on EE in london and am getting 20mbps here.

Hi mate

Yes I am referring to his post as he is talking nonsense, I was in a Phones 4 U shop the other day talking to the Manageress and she confirmed that the note 2 7100 or 7105 are both available to buy at 459 the 7105 is locked to t mobile so it would need unlocking I will be getting one from there in the next couple of weeks
