Yes there is no warranty but it's $649.99 + tax to buy the phone outright from AT&T if you want the same phone. whats $170+ in savings which u can put towards the warranty if you prefer.
I believe, depending on what credit card you choose, you can get the warranty from your credit card company if something breaks. Options are definitely there.
To get a warranty from your credit card, the item you buy must have a warranty of (typically) 90 days minimum to qualify. And the warranty has to be a manufacturer warranty, not a store warranty. Read the fine print.
Never understood why someone would buy a phone outright. Wait for your contract to come due and get another at a discount. I do understand phones break. Thats why I always hang on to our last phone just in case. New technology is not worth that to me.

The Note 2 is great but HSPA+ is nothing compared to LTE. My LTE speeds are so fast, I don't even use my WiFi connection at home anymore because I have Truly Unlimited 4G LTE with T-Mobile. It's sad when the Note 2's hardware can't catch up with the internet because usually it's the other way around.
I heard of this and I don't quite understand how they can make fake smartphones (that work like real ones)
Its not that hard, you make it look the same, copy the software, etc. The hardware doesn't have to be the same, it just has to look the same.
I was reading about this person who worked at the repair center for a cell phone company. They got his phone and had to tell him they couldn't fix it because it was counterfeit. How did they know? His phone was touchscreen, the original phone doesn't have a touch screen - the counterfeit had a better feature.
An alternative is to get a Verizon Galaxy Note 2. It is unlocked out of the box for all GSM networks including AT&T and TMobile. If you have Verizon service, you get 4G LTE. On GSM, the fastest you'll get is HSPA+.
You will need to root it however to set GSM APN settings.
