Just curious about what this update to GB does that I wasn't getting before?
New radios, GB also brings better memory management so it should help battery life at least in theory and bring responsiveness up some as well.
Got the update this morning and so far so good. No issues to speak of. I have noticed some cosmetic differences like the notification pull down now allows you to modify some settings (blue tooth, wifi, etc...).
Interested in seeing what this will do for the battery life!
I think some camera stuff. I thought I used to have to hit the menu button and scroll down to the switch camera option for the FFC to come on. Now there is a button to the top left which is nice. Also did not remeber the "dot" effect being there even though its pretty useless. Last I didnt know you could edit pictures with effects after the photos were taken. This was probably already on there but I just had no reason to edit any.
The update won't let you turn off the Lock/Unlock sound, not a really nice part of the update. Now it "whooshes" when I unlock even after going to settings/sounds/and turning off the lock/unlock sound effect. If anyone knows a way to shut it up, I'd appreciate it.
settings, sound, untick screen lock sounds. works for me
How do I get the newest GB update if it updated a month ago to the old GB? I believe the new GB fixes the VM problem.
Have you tried checking for new updates?
I have.....CONSTANTLY....and the stupid thing will not give me the new one!!!
I don't know how to get you the update other than flashing the ruu (will factory reset) or root
I had the update last week. VZW sent me a notification of this and I did it. It did fix the voice mail problem. Thankfully.
did you update it by flasnhing the RUU? or did it OTA? are you stock or rooted?
I got the OTA, both of them for GB actually. A co-worker who flashed the first RUU manually (both of us are unrooted) has NOT seen the second GB update.
That's not the unlock sound. They added sound to weather widget. Have to turn sound off for the weather to stop that sound.
Sunshine and lollipops.
I hear there's this "new" feature called Voicemail Notifications....where if someone leaves you a voicemail your phone has this little doo-hickey that tells you "hey you got a voicemail!".....so quaint...
I've been trying the "check new" but it always says...SERVICE UNAVAILABLE Check for Software Update under Settings when service is available.
sllyons007 nailed it. Turned off Weather sound and it's quiet again.
is this an active phone? do you have data enabled? i got that on my TB when i wasnt using it as my active phone. i believe you must have an active phone/data signal for it to check.
you can also try going to settings/apps/manage apps/all and clear data on "updater" and see if that does anything.
I'm having this issue where my phone constantly loses its Data connection. I'm in a 4G area basically all day at work and at home but sometimes I will lose my connection all together, so I go check the settings and the mobile network is off. I constantly try to turn it on but it never comes on, its really annoying and the first real problem I've had with my phone. Has anyone else had this problem?
Also I've noticed that I changed my screen timeout to 30seconds and it keeps reverting itself back to 15s, which has been driving me nuts as well.
Edit: I had a firmware update maybe this has a fix in it, restarting my phone usually fixes the problem for a short while before it randomly happens again.
You may have to get a new sim card that is what fixed mine about 3 mounths ago
You are correct. I didn't have service when it was giving me that error message. I have since reactivated it and when I click on Check new, it says Checking for new Software available now. It shows this for about a second then disappears and that's it. Nothing...not error message or anything, just back to Status and Check new.
No bugs for me! Phone running perfect after update a week ago!
My volume isn't as loud. But it is fixable temporarily. I unlock my phone, press once on the volume rocker and it makes the ding sound, but its low. When I push it again its back to full volume. Even when its all the way up.
Also when a friend sends me a picture, most of time I dont get it. But they send again and I do.
Any ideas why my phones doing this?
I have the exact same proble,, well the data loss problem. i am also in a 4g area all day and just randomly itll just loose its conection, and same thing when i check the settings to turn on the mobile network its disconected and also wont let me connect back to it.
