I updated my phone to Lollipop. After the update, the LED indicator will NOT light up if I receive texts, emails, or any other notifications. I have my phone to vibrate once I pick up the phone if there are missed messages as well, I can't remember the name of this feature. And my phone will NOT vibrate either.
When I charge my phone, the LED will be a solid red. However, if a message comes through it should blink blue, and it does NOT do that. It just stays a solid red, when charging. Please research this issue, and get back to me ASAP.
The text or email icon WILL show in the notifications at the top of my phone, but the LED will not light up. And the my phone will NOT vibrate, once I pick up my phone (again, I don't know the name of this feature). It is very annoying as I have to hit the power button to see what messages came through since I normally have my phone charging & on silent @ work.
I tried to RESTART, POWER OFF, and these will not solve the issue. Sprint please fix ASAP.
I tried the soft reset ##72786#. It did not work. I powered off my phone as well. Are you sure I need to do a factory reset? I have some questions before I do. How do I do a factory reset? And what info will I lose? What info should be saved before doing so? Seems like a lot of work to do just to get the LED indicator light to work for missed calls or messages. This is very frustrating! Again, please reply promptly.
Hello Yannick, How about a partition wipe to clean out old temporary and junk files first before the reset. Some of these old files can cause problems too. A reset may very well do the job. but isn't that a last resort? I think that it is wise to clean out as much as you can first. Who knows maybe the partition wipe as well as a good cache clean will do the job with out a reset.
I have had a multiple of issues with my galaxy s5 since purchase in November As well As After The Recent Lollipop Update.Primarily When I Am in Calls The Other Party Cannot Hear My Voice Unless I Am On Blue Tooth Or Speaker. Also Issues With Other Phone Features.Samsung Tech Support Recommended I Take My Device To A Best Buy Store Where They Will Re Install The Software On The Device For Free And This Should Fix Any Issues As a Result Of Update Problems. Ive Yet To Go To Best Buy And Am Going Tommorrow Or Next Day To Have The Softwear Installed And Hopefully Resolve The Initial And Post Update Problems With This S5.Ive never been so Unhappy With A Sprint Samsung Device In All My 15 Years A Loyal Sprint Customer. What Next? I dont know vut the reinstall maybe worth a try.
Hello Penny, Why take your phone to best Buy when you can fix it youself? This is not rocket science! I have a Moto X and I had the same problems myself. It has a similar operating system. I fixed it myself cause the Sprint tech was inept. You can start by doing a partition wipe which will remove temporary and junk files which may be left over from the upgrade. These can interfere with the operation of the phone! next do a good cache clean and see if this helps. If not the you must do a reset. I know this will help. Try this and let me know. I would like to help. I fixed my Moto X and it works flawlessly!
the feature you're reffering to, icalled smart alert i think, i'm testing it though to see if it is working because the setting is there
