bluetooth issue after OTA 4.3 update
Well.. since I let my phone update to 4.3, I have a Bluetooth issue.
A brief history. I have a S3 At&t that was 4.1.1. It was rooted, and I had installed a 1% 20 toggles mod.
At&t tried to update OTA and failed several times . I eventually reflashed to an OEM 4.1.1 and allowed it to update to 4.3.
I'm guessing the toggles mod was causing an issue. Anyway, before the update, my cars nav system would (Parrot) Bluetooth reasonably well to the s3. I could hit a button on the cars screen and it would mute the audio, and pull up s-voice (I could hear s-voice thru the cars speakers). I could then tell it to call someone, etc.
Now after the update, when doing the same thing, it pulls up s-voice, but un-mutes the audio after about 2-3 seconds, and s-voice, even though displayed on the phone, is deaf. Every other Bluetooth function works. I have tried pairing and unpairing several times and tried all the options. to no avail. I cleared the phones cache.. no change. Today I used the nuclear option and reset to factory default, and guess what?
Still no change. :'(
I am assuming that 4.3 has broken this, but I am open to suggestions.
EDIT: I've had some more time to think about this, and I am beginning to suspect the issue is with S-voice and not Bluetooth.
Re: bluetooth issue after OTA 4.3 update
I would love to know what's going on. My battery drains in less than 3 hours. Bluetooth will no longer connect to any of five devices, Camera flash fires when phone rings (directly at oncoming traffic as it's on an i-mount) and randomly at other times. WiFi is seriously shaky. I am extremely pissed. Verizon is blaming this on everyone else. Why can't they just go back to the version we had in December until they get the rest worked out? I only receive and place ~7 phone calls per week. Nearly ALL of my usage involves data and Bluetooth. WTF? They have wrecked an $800 phone (paid full amount to keep unlimited data contract). I want a fix or my full money back. A hard reset is totally unacceptable.
