Default 4.3 Issues of Interest (Verizon)

This is intended to be a thread where people can note changes in 4.3 (for Verizon) that might be of interest. Previous threads have pointed out that folders now stay open after you select the program you want to run, and that you need to initialize your camera app after the upgrade.

I will add that if you do some voice recognition things (the one I noted was "call John Doe") you need to download a Samsung TTS app. It will pop up prompting you to do that.

All of my toggles were rearranged. Full blocking mode is now available in settings. I also have Hands-free mode now. It may have been there before and I just didn't notice it since I've never had the need to use it.

For some the WiFi toggle was added back. I've always had it (through three firmware versions) and I can't explain why. Two other phones bought at the same time on our account did not.

I'm having an issue with notification tones not playing and a android.process.media has stopped warning when I try to change my right tone from the stock list. Weird. May not be related but it just started. Cleared data and rebooted the phone and it still does it and still no tones for notifications. That's a problem for me.

Thank you to the moderator who added Verizon to the title. I thought of that too late.

I don't think this is a 4.3 change, but probably something I just noticed due to checking for features. It probably relates to my using Delayed Lock and having the Swipe to unlock page activated while at home rather than Pin. Anyway, I can now use both Home Screen Widgets and Shortcuts. The shortcuts in particular are pretty nice.

By any chance, are you able to use screen widgets with pin lock?

Default Wifi keeps turning On

I'm having an issue after the update where the Wifi continues to turn itself on. So I'll turn it off. Then awhile later it will turn back on again.

There is also a problem with texting and trying to access a contact. For instance, When I type in Pam all of the names starting with A come up. Can't figure out what to do to fix this.

Works for me but I had to turn on Verizon's hotspot once for it to check a subscription status, then afterwards foxfi worked as before.

I am on a shared plan, not unlimited

Here's a new one. When my car connected to Bluetooth this morning it connected to the Amazon MP3 player as it should. The next time it connected to the Music player, for the first time ever.

It used to do that with Gingerbread on my old Droid 2 Global--switching back and forth between players. Very annoying. Hopefully disabling the service that goes with that music player will end this behavior without any adverse consequences.

Just a quick follow up on this...

I decided to check the basics and came to the volume adjustment in Settings>sound and for some reason the update decided to turn the volume of my notifications all the off. The weird part is that one of my apps that uses notifications (Facebook I think) was still giving the audible notification. At any rate I've adjusted the volume slider and it seems to be fine now.

Oh, I also got a weird KNOX related pop-up after I updated that was:

"Security Notice

An attempt to access a secure area on your phone without authorization has been blocked.

Make sure your phone is protected by updating the security policy to the latest version from Samsung.

For more information, visit samsung.com/us/secureandroid"

I didn't allow it to update or do anything and after another reboot I haven't seen it or any other similar message again. Here's to hoping it stays gone.

Yeah, 4.3 broke a lot of tethering apps that so far haven't been fixed.

This has been an issue that people on the international version have had as well, and it seems to stem from apps not being updated to handle the Knox security suite without coming up as a false positive. Best bet is to figure out which app it is and e-mail the developer so they can work on a fix.

got it to work with the paid foxfi

follow these directions I found online it worked for me, whatever you use for the lock is how you have to log into the phone

"I did a couple of things that seemed to do the trick:
First I disabled my screen-lock pattern thing (Settings > Security > Screen Lock > None).
Then I exited out of all that and went to my applications tray and clicked on the 'VPN Shortcut' app.
I then ended up at a screen telling me that I couldn't use credential storage without setting up some sort of lock-screen - I followed the prompts to set up a pattern
Voila, I was at the VPN page, without my old Home VPN, but I just set it up again and all seemed fine."

Going on a trip in about a month & a half so I'll need to figure out a tethering app before then. Hopefully they resolve all these issues.

Thanks and I'll keep an eye out for this to see if I can narrow down what app is the culprit to email the dev.

Worst-case scenario you use native tethering, and pay Verizon the $1 per day for the service tho.

What about the built in hot spot feature? Can't you use that? I use that to tether my Nexus 7 and laptop when out of a WiFi area.

I thought it was free? I don't have unlimited data so I was under the impression they wanted you to use more data and pay for it therefore tethering was now free. *shrugs*

That's what I'm talking about I guess. Since getting my SGS4 on VZW I haven't had a need for tethering so I haven't even looked into it but I was pretty sure that it had a built in tethering app that just drew against our data allotment. I plan to test some things out in the weeks to come to make sure I'm good to go before we head offshore.

Depends on which plan you have. If you switched to their Share Everything plan it's free. They made use of the Hot Spot feature part of this plan.

That was my understanding too, and I have some vague recollection that they are prohibited by the FCC from charging for tethering on 4G. Maybe though I'm thinking of some other 4G limitation.

Devices do have native tethering build in, but it is locked with Verizon software so that it checks your account to see if your subscribed to a tethering plan if on traditional individual/family plans, or if you're on share everything plans.

Do you need to have 4.2's latest update installed from last week to update to 4.3?
If not, how can I remove last weeks update from my phone.
(It was downloaded automatic, but I never installed it due to battery issues that I read came along with it)
bwt...I'm NOT rooted, so I'm not sure if there is way I can get that out of there or not.

Any battery drain issues with 4.3?

I haven't had any battery drain issues with the 4.2 or this 4.3 update.

Guess it's besides the Point now.

Do you know if the last weeks update needs to be installed in order for 4.3 to be installed?
Or if I can somehow delete that auto update to 4.2 that I never installed?

FYI, I didn't have battery drain issues either, and I don't know whether you can install 4.3 without first doing the other update.

Well That's good to hear.
The battery drain issue worried me and that's pretty much the only reason I didn't install the update last week.
It makes sense that you'd have to install everything in succession, but I didn't know if there was a work around.

I suppose the big draw back now is that security notice popping up on everyone Huh? No fix for that yet I presume?
Maybe I should just hang tight until they get the kinks worked out of this stuff.
I doubt there's anything in 4.3 that is an absolute 'must have' right at this moment.

I've only had that pop up once, and I don't remember what I was doing. I might have even been playing around with settings.

Haven't had the security pop up but I am not going to install Knox anyway.
I did have to reset all of my notifications because they were all silent.
I had a Facebook Pop mp3 in my notifications folder that would play but was coming out silent. Once I replaced it it was fine.

My battery life seems to be improved. I'm at 73% after 12:40 minutes of use and prior to the update I would be somewhere in the 50% to 60% range with the same typical usage. I'll see how long that lasts lol.

I seem to get the popup when returning to my home WiFi network. So... no devs to notify because that would be a Samsung issue. Thanks Samsung!

FYI KNOX isn't something that you choose or don't choose. If you're rooted and go custom ROM that's a different story but for those of us unrooted KNOX is forced down your throat. I will consider this when my next handset purchase comes up and will likely go back to HTC. I dislike such things.

I don't have the Knox warning at all..maybe it's because I never finished the Knox install. When I click on the icon it tells me I need to download & install which I decided not to do...looks like good call by me.

I didn't authorize any KNOX installs either. I still get them.

I don't think this is a 4.3 issue, but Google's Play Music now one of the programs that works on the Multi-Window feature. So finally there are actually two programs I would want to have on the screen at the same time (Maps and Music).

Just for curiosity's sake, if you open the Knox app, do you still see Install at the bottom of the screen?

After the update I had problems with a few of my apps and HD widgets after I reapplied them using (non rooted) helium backup. Didn't seem to have the battery drain problem either. Soooo I did the factory reset and Bam battery drain and sluggishness . Did another factory reset this morning but this time I didn't reapply my apps via Helium and I didn't apply my nova launcher either and I don't seem to have any issues right now. hmmmm

I for one do not like the fact that now anything in the notification bar can turn on the flashing blue led. For example every time I get a new notice that it's my turn in the one game I play the blue led flashes. Dunno if the latest system update caused that or the latest update to the game itself. Before the led would not flash then...which I prefer. I only want it to flash when something of importance is there..like missed txt/call or a voicemail. With as many games of Dice I have going this thing will be flashing all the time. Trying to figure a way around it but no luck yet.

Ok....looks like it was the latest game update. Others are complaining of the same thing on other phone models.

Would being able to access widgets with Pin or Pattern lock enabled defeat the purpose of have the Pin or Pattern? If someone steals your phone they will be able to get around your security via the widget.

When I click the KNOX icon from the app tray it launches and there's some text and then an INSTALL button mid-way down. So it's not installed but I keep getting warnings anyway. Hella lame.

No WiFi issues that I've noticed but something wireless network related is that I now can't connect to some of the devices on my network that I've connected to for years with ES File Explorer and this device, several previous devices and countless firmware and ROMs thousands of times. I noticed this today when I needed to move MP3's to a networked PC like I've done thousands of times and now I can't connect to it. The only change I can think of is updated to 4.3 on this device. Running Windows 7 64-bit Pro on that PC and a newer laptop running Windows 8 allows connection just the same as it did previously. I moved several images to it just like I always have.
