Issues with the new upgrade on 10-8-2013

So since I did may upgrade I have a new icon in my toolbar that looks like an N and I don't know what that is. Also all my contact icons pictures in my messenger for texts are gone. Is any one else having this issue? and does anyone know exactly what the upgrade all did?

Re: Issues with the new upgrade on 10-8-2013

there is a list in this forum that contains all this..the contacts deal is a known deal..well kind of..is this happening with your stock texting app or a 3rd party one like handcent or gosms?

the logo up top is for NFC...basically the ability to transfer data (pics, videos etc) by touching your phone to another phone that has the NFC ability..prior to the update it was probably turned on but nothing showed this..the new update put that notifications hogger up there so you know if its on or not lol..you can turn it off if its something you never use or never WILL use..then you wont have to worry about seeing it up there.

Now my battery is draining bad! I didn't say anything at first, and wanted to give it some time. Well, it's bad.

Full charge at 7:30 am. 9% left at 3:00 pm. Usually, I have about 50% left at that time. I even barely used my phone today.

I have Google Loaction services turned off, and I even increased the amount of time between updates on my apps.

With the new update I seem to experiencing

  • a lag within some apps
  • when texting the persons photo disappears and then later comes back
  • some apps aren't as touch responsive and you have to push harder when typing on the screen within the app
  • BT in car does show photo now for caller however when I receive an email while on the phone many times I get disconnected

If you can advise I would appreciate that. Scott

SCOTTWYP,

Thanks for the post. Have you powered off your device then back on? This can help reset the device on the network.
