Tap menu key
First clear your RAM. Click the Samsung store app again, but while it's loading keep tapping the menu button. If it doesn't work, clear the RAM again and launch the Samsung app store icon again. Keep tapping that menu button. Eventually, I can either get it to say the update failed, try again later but the store will work, or it just won't try to update and the store will work.
As for the 4G problem, I took "auto" off in the settings and left it set to 4G. Now it seems to be working OK.
Now there's a third problem, although not as serious.
My weather/news app stopped working this week. It's the one that came with the phone, so I cannot remove it. I liked this app a lot as it has weather AND news.
Now, it will no longer find my location. Even if I enter a city name (any city in Canada or the U.S.) it says it's unable to find that location. If I enter my postal code, same result. If I turn on GPS, same result.
It went from working fine one day to not working the next. It's been like this for a week now. It's like whatever server the weather app used is gone. I have reset, and removed battery but nothing gets it working again. I really liked that app to because it has great news options.
So, now I've installed a separate weather app, and I've installed News360 (I use it on my tablet and it's awesome, but it's not so hot on a phone). It's available for the phone from the Samsung app store.
I have to be honest. I'm not so impressed with Samsung. My phone is still under warranty, and so far there are two unsolvable problems on it. I love the phone, but I have to wonder why I pay so much money for a phone that doesn't seem to have the best reliability. To be fair, the phone and texting and web always seem to work, but these little naggily problems are going to drive me nuts.
