GALAXY Note II Product Image_Key Visual

Note II early adopters on the Now Network, time to head into the Settings menu and check for updates - Sprint just announced a new OTA is rolling out for its iteration of the phablet. This update brings a few meh changes, like GPS lock setting enhancements, email fixes, and improved text message notifications while talking on the phone. But it also brings one major feature: Multi-Window. It's good to see this feature start rolling out to U.S. handsets, as it's been on the Korean and International versions for several weeks now.

Start around the two-minute mark to see Multi-Window in action.

The update should be on its way to handsets now, so head into Settings > System Updates > Update Samsung Software > Check now to see if it's available on your device.

Enjoy doing two things at once.

    ...if only I could walk into a Best Buy and purchase one =]

    The release of the Note II for Sprint has been a very curious experience

  • Note 4u

    Will it kill root?

    • dextersgenius

      Of course. Get Mobile Odin Pro and flash the update using it to preserve root.

  • Waydaddy

    I can't get the update. Sad.

  • Mobile

    I work at a Best Buy, we got ours on last nights truck. Call your local BBY and see if they got them.

  • RaptorOO7

    IF only we could get this on Verizon already . . . typical delays, delays and more delays.

  • Mario

    Hopefully this can get ripped and installed into the other US variants

    "Text message notification will beep while in a voice call" My Note 2 already does this and the notification is a PITA! It makes you think you rec'd another call when you didn't.

    Glad this is being pushed out. Glad for my Sprint friends but we on Tmobile needs this immediately. Nothing beats this device ever unless the Galaxy Note 3 is on the way..

    Go to Settings, Application Manager,All, Google Services Framework, Clear data, Force Stop,return to Settings, System Update. This should work. It worked for me, good luck. :-)

    Tmobile needs to step up..How on earth can they carry the Note II 1st, but Sprint already has the update rolling? I got the Note II the morning it came out and i love it, but im ready to use "all" the features for this phone, so whats the hold-up,Tmobile? Makes me wanna switch carriers..
