You don't have to flash the Note 2 for other service. You just get another sim and pop it in. I am currently testing out Straight Talk on my Note 2. Basically, after you activate your service with them, you just need to add the APN info on your phone and connect to that network. This modified APK from IMNUTS will let you not have the annoying sim notification.
However, the last statement above is the downside. Once you hit 2.5gb of usage, your speeds are throttled down. Now, it says high speed, so I am not sure if they are only talking about LTE or what, because our phones cannot connect to LTE because we do not have the needed phone bands.
