Never saw that happen.
I do not own the Note. BUT since one can change the level the alert changes at, sure, why not?
Do you feel that the user should not have access to such controls?
There are a few broken units out there and it does seem that a person with a broke unit will post (they call it cross posting) to a hundred forums to scream there is a problem. Sorry, but if that was a real issue you would find CNET write an article about it. If you are fearful of this, why buy it?
