Are you getting a small circle when you touch your phone?

After the update I downloaded when I got my phone yesterday, I am now getting a little circle when I touch my phone. It's like a bigger version of the circle from the S Pen. It's very annoying and not as accurate.It lags behind my finger when I swipe. I do not remember seeing it before the update.

Anyone else get this? How to get rid of?

Looks like you may have "Show touches" enabled.

Thanks for your post. What update was it that you down loaded, so that I can check the related features of that update?

Is this occuring when you're using a certain app, or messaging service?

Hi, no it all the time. Anytime, I go to use my fingers, there is a little circle w/ light. Do you have this at all?

It's a lagging circle whenever I touch my phone on any app, on home screen, anywhere.

Edit: By lagging, I mean when I swipe my finger it is usually behind it.

Can you send me a private message with an alternate number other than your cell number, so that we can look into the cause?

I sent you a PM. Also of note, I just got a bunch of text messages that were sent way earlier, so I am having some data issues too it looks like.

Glad I could help with the circles.

You don't have "blocking mode" enabled do you?  menu/settings

I had something like that happen to me on another phone, after installing and using Google Voice service.

Hope that helps. You may have to get with Sprint on that one.

MAke sured your device is set to CDMA only if you are not in an area with 4G LTE. This might helps with yourVM and texting issue. Menu>Settings>More Settings>Mobile Nteworks> Network Mode> CDMA

Hope this helps.
