    Now the net works fine(not for long with 200mb)

    It surprised my friend at att too.....he's been there 10 years....!!

    I'll try another prepaid plan/ unlimited of course. Simple mobile has one FOR smartphones @ $50..........we'll see.

    Thanks all for the input and encouragement.....great forum here!

    Thanks again.......Ol'Ben
    I'm glad you were able to get it working.

    You can use your current AT&T phone with Straight Talk for $45 per month if you'd like.

    Simple Mobile uses T-Mobile's network and has a $40 per month plan that has the first 250 MB at 4G speeds, and the rest at reduced speeds. I'm not sure what Simple Mobile's reduced speeds are, but it might be acceptable. If not you can go with the $50 plan that you mentioned.

    Let us know if you switch providers and what you think. Maybe you could post a review.

    What kind of limits/ caps does straight talk have on the data?

    I wasn't sure they would activate a $40/ $50 plan with this note II so I didn't even try them.

    Altho.......Samsung tech said wally would hook me up with the note II.......??

    Anyone running a GS3 or Note II with Wal-Mart?

    Thanks again all...........I'll be back.........Ol'Ben

    You can use the Note II on Straight Talk or Simple Mobile, as long as it has the correct frequencies. If it's an AT&T phone you can use it on Straight Talk without a problem, or if it is a T-Mobile phone you can use it on Simple Mobile without a problem. But, if you want to use it on a different carrier you should double check to make sure it is compatible. For example, T-Mobile uses different frequencies than AT&T. I've read that some phones might not work with their 3G service. So, it's best to double check.

    Straight Talk has unlimited data according to their website. I've read that some people have complained about getting disconnected for using too much. Straight Talk hasn't posted anything on their website about that though. As long as you follow their Terms of Service you should be fine.
