    To enable 3G on Samsung Galaxy Note, it’s more simple: 2 actions:

    1: press the power button 1 secondes.
    2: press the second item in the menu “Data Network”

    IT’S DONE !!!

    T-mobile Does not support Galaxy Note for 3G ofr 4G. I called customer service. They said “You did not buy the phone form T-mobile, you did not pay us more money. Because of that we don’t support your phone. Your data line will be GPRS or Egde not even 2G “
