Galaxy Note 2 pictures When it comes to the variants of the Galaxy Note II, different carriers like AT&T, Sprint, T-mobile, Verizon and U.S. Cellular have released their own versions. If you are in US, a handful of Galaxy Note II devices are available for you. And there is a possibility you may not even know which version you are using.

GT-N7100 for International GT-N7105 for International with LTE SCH-I605 for Verizon SCH-R950 U.S. Cellular SGH-I317 for AT&T SGH-T889 for T-Mobile SPH-L900 for Sprint Nextel There are some differences between the carriers’ Galaxy Note II models and international versions. For example, the International version of the Galaxy Note II GT-N7100 has no 4G Network service but with optional inductive charging pins, while the Verizon SCH-I605 includes the 4G Network but without inductive charging pins. Some components of different Galaxy Note II models appear very similar, but will not fit or function when put in the wrong model. It is necessary to know your exact Galaxy Note II model when you need to flash ROMs or fix a broken Galaxy Note II (Click to learn How to Teardown Galaxy Note II). Therefore, you need to identify which model you have. Here are four ways to find out.

1)    Check Your Galaxy Note II Model Number in the system Navigate to Setting> About device> Model Number, then the Model Number will appear.

2)    Check Battery Door You can identify the Galaxy Note II version through the battery door. Some carriers' logos are printed on it. Such as this Verizon SCH-I605 and T-Mobile SGH-T889 models. Galaxy-Note-II-battery-door

3)    Check Behind the Battery If you can’t find your phone model from the battery door, the next best way is to look behind the battery. Many manufacturers put the phone model along with other information in this area. Galaxy Note 2 behind the battery

    Not2 E250S display fit on N7100 mother bord?

  2. BY haseeb

    I cannot update my galaxy note gt n7105 software.when I try it says that that registration failed

    • BY kaye

      Hi Haseeb, have rooted your phone before? If you did it, it may be the reason, you should uninstall the root APP.
      If you haven’t rooted it, it may be a network issue, try again after a moment or connect to a stable wireless network/mobile data network.
      Best Regards

    I can light my Samsung GT-N7100 but it stops at manufacturer’s logo. I learnt from websites I can unbrick it and reboot it? The different websites show steps which I tried but I could not reboot it normally. I feel I am not able to select the right stock ROM or many of the websites miss a step or steps. Put the mobile to download mode is not a problem so far. Details of my mobile are: –
    Model GT-N7100
    FCC ID A3LGTN7100
    SSN N7100GSMH
    Made in Vietnam
    Can you assist me to reboot it, please? I do appreciate very much if you can let me have the right ODIN and stock ROM for the mobile.
    Thank you in advance

    the motherboard on my 16GB Note 2 SGH-i317 died 2 weeks ago, I was just going to trash it but I found out I can install the latest android os via rom on it and now I want to replace the motherboard.
    But can I replace the old dead 16GB mother with a 64 GB motherboard?

    • BY kaye

      Hi Daryl, I suggest you send it to a repair shop ask for help. It has a risk to damage it if you replace it yourself.

  9. BY Guillermo

    Hello, I have a N7105 note II, the LCD is broken, does the N7100 LCD-digitalizer-frame fits on the motherboard of the N7105?

    • BY May

      Hello Guillermo, the N7100 LCD+Digitizer+Frame does NOT fit on the N7105. But the N7105 LCD+Digitizer+Frame is compatible with the SGH-T889 and SGH-I317. Hope it helps 🙂

      Hi Zorina, if it’s the LCD+Digitizer, it fits for N7100; However, the N7105 LCD+Digitizer+Frame will not fit for N7100.

  16. BY stevo

    could I take the circuit board out of a N7105 with broken screen. an swap it for the N7100 board I have in my other phone. I need to keep my 4g

    I recently broke my screen and I have a sprint model L900. I received a screen(with the mounting back) for the SCH-i605 Verizon model. It fits perfect, except that it had a Verizon button.

  18. BY Dwayne

    also… while mine is the verizon sch-i605 model… i am certain that it DOES have the inductive charging pins so what’s up with that?

  19. BY Dwayne

    so i cracked the screen and lcd on my verizon note II. i have already disassembled it per the video on this site. i am going to replace it but rather than the black or white that is offered for my brand (sch-i605) i would rather rebuild it in pink (gt-n7100). i am willing to use all gt-n7100 parts (housing, battery cover, etc…) just so long as the motherboard, vibe, speaker, earphone jack, cameras, etc. will fit in them and work… if i have to i will order the pink face, glass, and l.c.d. seperately since it seems to me that the pink is merely a cosmetic difference and should not effect performance… ideas? suggestions?

      Hi I have galaxy note 2 and the model is SGH-I317 and I broke my screen. I ordered new screen with frame but is for samsung i650. Is that any problem to fit

  21. BY ray

    i will know if the screen from note 2 model i605 can fit note 2 model GT-N 7100

    • BY alina

      Hi Ray,
      They are not compatible. So the screen from i605 will not fit GT-N7100.
