AT&T Rep: Galaxy Note 2 Release Date Set for October 25th
AT&T still hasn’t provided a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release date, however, if a customer service representative is correct, the carrier may be planning on mirroring Sprint’s Galaxy Note 2 release.
A reader provided us with a screenshot from a conversation that they had with an AT&T customer service representative. This conversation came after numerous conversations that the person had with AT&T representatives until, as you can see, one decided to spill what looks like the beans early. If the customer service representative is correct, then the AT&T Galaxy Note 2 will be released on October 25th.
Update: Galaxy Note II Release Date, Pre-Orders Confirmed
Of course, this is a customer service representative and not AT&T itself which makes it less credible. However, with the launch of the Galaxy Note 2 so close, it’s possible that it has begun informing representatives of the Galaxy Note 2 release date and one just so happened to slip up.

October 25th isn’t out of the question as that is the same date that Sprint will be releasing the Galaxy Note 2 on its 4G LTE network. In addition, it looks like T-Mobile is gearing up for a release on October 24th, the same day that Samsung is hosting a Galaxy Note 2 launch event in New York City that will see Kanye West perform.
Previously, we had thought that AT&T might release the phone in November given that it said the LG Optimus G, which launches on November 2nd, would be its first smartphone with 4G LTE and quad-core processor but right now, it’s looking like that may have either been a mistake or it meant that it was the first one to be announced, not released.
Thus far, Sprint is the only carrier to announce an official release date for the Galaxy Note 2 which it, like U.S Cellular and T-Mobile, will be selling for $299.99 on-contract.

https://m.cnet.com/news/galaxy-note-2-arrives-on-at&t-on-nov-9/57538066. Just found this saying nov 9th
10/22/2012 at 8:56 pm
Omg. I so hope u guys are right. I took the 25th off of work for this phone lol
10/22/2012 at 9:06 pm
it makes sense, cause LG is coming out with the first LTE quad-core smartphone, but AT&t doesn’t consider the note as a phone, they call it a phablet so that argument is thrown out the window

I was do for an upgrade when the 4S IPHONE came out and have waited patiently to see what’s coming and of course the IPhone 5 to me was a huge let down. HUGE. THE NOTE 2 Seems to be the best way to go as long as the screen is as bright as the IPhones. I need to be able to see it in the car during the day light. Yay

It’s not 5:56 AM. it’s 8:56 AM. :)))
Go suck Apple off
