    I sent the info the HTC in their contact us option.

    I have not tried other apps, I will give that a try later.

    I turned off the BlueTooth and same results, tried disabling Bluetooth Share, rebooted, factory reset (ect)

    I just got the phone last Friday (5 days ago) (brand spanking new) and updated it right away without knowing 4.3 just came out...

    Question : does this happen on wifi /cellular?

    First time I've used the fm app on this device and I've had this phone sibc the launch.

    It's been playing close to half an hour and no force closes as yet.

    I'm sprint, stock, non rooted running 4.3 currently on wifi and 4.3

    EDIT: played a solid hour, changing stations and no FC or BT errors...

    Has anyone else notice that they're not receiving notifications when a new text/sms message arrives? The default Messaging app doesn't give me a notification, I have to manually open the app up to see if I received a new text message.

    Yet, in third party SMS apps (such as Chomp or Textra), they were perfectly fine.

    Thoughts?

    Hi!

    Just updated and notice that "lock screen style" is missing from settings. Is it now impossible to disable the lock screen?

    Just update last night.
    Camera dark/red problem not solved.

    I have a feeling that the signal strength is low, as mentioned by some of the US 4.3 update.
    It is ~-100dBm.

    Are you having any actual slowdowns? Have you noticed any signal issues besides the bar count being lower? Run a speed test and see what results you get. Check the dBm signal strength. Do you get any dropped calls? The more info you provide the more likely someone will be able to help.

    No dropped calls or lower call quality, and it looks and feels to be the same speed (a bit faster really)

    Signal strength
    RSRP(dBm) : -107 RSRQ(dB) : -12
    it dabbles anywhere from 106 to 108 just sitting on my desk at work

    another issue is that it switches haphazardly between HSPA Edge 3g and LTE whereas before the update it rarely left LTE

    Echoing others' concerns in regards to bluetooth.. For me, if I answer a call with my BT headset it answers but then switches to phone audio (nothing coming thru on headset). Then if I make a call with the headset in I get to hear one ring and then it switches to phone audio. In both cases the phone still shows the Bluetooth icon in-call.

    For A2DP, I've always had the crackling problem but it is much worse now than before


    Anyone else?

    Okay guys i need some help. I am on AT&T network in the US. I updated to 4.3 right after it came out ( first of the month ? ) Ever since then I have had 2 issues ( that I have found ) both pertainging to texting.

    1) When I send or am about to recieve a text, a green or orange, or green and orange symbol ( not sure what it is ) flashes up on my notification bar, just briefly, so fast I cant even get a screen shot of what it is, but my friend who also has AT&T and also updated, his phone does not do this flash thing when sending or recieveing texts. Anyone know what it is, or what app bloatware AT&T installed.

    2) Also after the update some texts do not send, they have the little clock/note thing next to them and wont send, until I restart my phone, then it sends whatever text right away. I can be texting back and forth and 1 lone message does not go through but other do. Anyone else having issues with that?

    I did have an issue with my battery when I first did the update. I emailed HTC and they claimed they were not aware of the issue, but seeing many posts about it. I turned off the percentage use and it actually seems to help, or I dont notice it draining so quick. I have my settings on the lowest possible brightness, dont leave bluetooth or wifi on when I dont need it, not sure what the issue was but HTC was really no help.

    For the first issue, not really sure. The only thing I can think of would be, the Beats logo that pops up. I haven't noticed it on mine, but maybe that is what is flashing up there. Except there shouldn't be any green in it, just red. Whenever audio comes out of the speakers, it lights up. I don't recall ever seeing it with text notifications though. Do you use the stock messaging app, or something like Handcent?

    Also not sure about the sending. I mean, I have had that happen on Sprint, both with my HTC One and my old Evo3D. Usually it was just once in a while, and generally happened if I was in a poor connection area.

    In your head.
    Your last issue may be nothing more than a placebo. The batter indicator has always shown the battery to have more power than it actually has, if you pay attention to the percentage in relation to the indicator you can see how skewed it is. The signal was another thing people thought had gotten worse, what really happened was that the signal indicator after the update shows a more realistic signal level. For me the battery life has actually improved considerably.

    I contacted HTC and they sent me the following fix, sorry to say it didn't work for me, let me know if it works for anyone:

    First of all, please erase any system errors and delete all temporary files from the cache and RAM by performing a soft reset. Please do the following: press and hold the Power key for a couple of seconds, you will see a small chart with three options; please select “Restart Phone”

    Also, I will like to recommend you to perform a wipe cache. This will not remove any personal data on the phone but will delete any temporary files that may be causing an issue, in case of corruption after the update. Make sure that Fastboot is not checked, in order for you to see this information, please go to Settings>Power>Fastboot

    To clear the cache partition follow the steps below:

    1. Power the phone off.
    2. Press and Hold Volume Down then briefly press Power to turn the phone on. Do not release Volume Down until the phone boots a white screen with three images of the Android mascot.
    3. Use the volume keys to highlight Recovery and press Power to select. Screen will load to an image of a red triangle with an exclamation point.
    4. Press Volume Up and down and Power at the same time to show the Recovery Menu.
    5. Use volume keys to highlight “wipe cache partition” then press Power to select. This may take approximately 30 seconds depending on the amount of information it has to go through.
    6. When done, highlight the option to reboot/restart phone and again press Power to select.


    Then, I will recommend you to clear the data and cache of the message application. From home screen>settings>apps>all>messages>clear data and clear cache.

    Please let me know how did it go. I will be waiting for your response.

    The way I got the contact photos fixed in the Messages app was to re-link the contacts to their social network accounts. Haven't had a problem since.

    Is there any manual way of getting Sense 5.5 on a T-Mobile HTC One? I got the 4.3 update when it came out...but seem to be stuck on 5.0 still. I'm mainly interested in this to remove blink feed. Or are there some good work arounds that will not affect phone performance?

    Thanks

    In your head.
    Sense 5.5 only comes with 4.4. You could possibly find a hybrid Rom and root your phone, but it looks like 4.4 should arrive in about 3 months.

    On the European version of the One we get 5.5 with jb4.3 which is rolling out right now for unbranded handsets, little longer for those of us with the likes of 3.. surely there would be a way you could get it.

    just became available for my handset but there was a bugfix update first, wonder if this is because of some issues people have been having with their camera & chargers
