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.

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.
Here is proof of a counterfeit Note 2 on ebay
And i quote......
WHITE INTERNATIONAL SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 2 N-7100
******THIS IS A CLONE, IT IS NOT A REAL NOTE 2*********
My concern with counterfeit products like this is what additional software have they installed?

|k3u||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.|

Bought my unlocked 4G-less N7100 in October from Newegg for $579. It's been worth every penny on HSPA+.
If you want a warranty buy it from Squaretrade.

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.

So yeah... I rather paid a bit more rather than losing that much.
