ok i converted to the GS4 from an iphone and now, i might be regretting that i did. I put in the fixes last week when i posted the thread on here. But now it appears that i might have to go back to apple.

here are the list of complaints:

Bluetooth is a pain in the ass. I go into my car and it stays on for a bit and then my car just drops the connection. My car apparently asks for a MAP request. My iphone 5 never asked for a map request. Then when i do it, it stays for awhile and then drops the connection again..
Bluetooth performance has been absolutely flawless for me. Crystal clear, pairs and connects with zero problems.

I have no idea what you are talking about here. Why in the world would you expect remote controls to your headphones to simply work with the phone without some kind of pairing and communication software?

The facebook application does allow you to see all albums. Click on Photos, and then albums. There are other options in the market (like Friendcaster) if you don't like the native application.

I easily get through a full day, and then some. And, I use my phone a fair bit. I have no idea what is going on for you but this is not a typical S4 issue.

any words of encouragement.
If you are not prepared to do the legwork to figure out how your S4 works, I'd suggest you go back to the iPhone before you are locked into a new contract.
