    For problems with sound cutting out in messages... Go into messaging and settings and turn off delete old messages... that fixes the issue

    Roaming:
    All the sudden I am roaming everywhere. I can't get the warning to go away. I have switched from global to Lte without luck. I have not tried GSM thoroughly however. Might be related to another persons problem with 4G connectivity.

    In general, the device seems faster, but I have not seem any significant change in battery life. Since the radio is weak, and I don't have very good service anyway, it is always searching for signal and draining the battery.
    There's a setting for roaming in Settings -> More Settings -> Mobile Networks. Take a look there, if you haven't already.

    Have you considered the Verizon Network Extender? Really helps at my house, although I'm just a little put off that I need it...I pay the same as everyone else for service, and have to pay extra to get it. Anyways, it solved the fast battery drain due to low cell phone signal strength problem at my house.

    Terrible battery life.
    Battery life certainly has decreased.

    I hope someone can put together a list of things we can turn off to return battery life with Jelly Bean to that which we had with ICS.

    Can't get Yahoo mail to function.
    ...."please select an account and enter your password to sync with this device"....

    After I enter the password for Yahoo and hit "restore", I get "Account setup error occurred - 504 Gateway Timeout"

    Ditto. I found that solution this morning, as well. I think the Jelly Bean update turned it on by default (it did not used to be on). I turned it off this morning, recharged and then rebooted my phone (to start with a clean battery usage graph). I am happy to report that my maps usage is now showing to be virtually "zero" (I actually used it once for a location-based search) and my battery usage is more in line with what it was before the update.

    -SR-
    But is that going to affect Google Now, or does that use the navigation system to find your location?

    I guess the gray notification bar is a standard part of JB. I looked at a buddies Sprint GS3 running JB and its the same. I thought it might have just been Verizon. Not a big fan of the gray.

    Have not had noticeable battery problems.
    Really miss the msg notification bubble on lock screen.
    Some things seem more "buttery smooth" but when holding the home button it takes a lot longer to bring up open apps to kill or multitask.
    Glitch/flickering when scrolling or playing some games.
    TouchWiz kept unexpectedly stopping when trying to delete an empty page but got that fixed by changing animation speed ( not sure why that fixed it ), BUT now when opening an app folder its really slow like the animation speed is on 10 no matter what i set it on. REALLY ANNOYING
    And I REALLY miss the msg notification bubble.
    And I thought we were going to be able to swipe directly from taking a picture to the picture gallery, or was that just for the nexus or something?

    Since the update, my music library has been screwed up. The music is there, but everything minus the titles of tracks (tracks are labeled differently) are labeled as <unknown>. I deleted the music, re-uploaded and same thing.

    I have the stock Music Player added to the lock screen. Are you having an issue with the controls not showing up on the lock screen when the Music Player is active and in use?

    I REALLY miss the bubble notifications on the lock screen.
    Everytime I lose service and I'm using wifi, the wifi will disconnect and reconnect again. It never did that before.
    I also don't like how there is no option to remove the callback number from received text messages.

    Well i was searching for this Forum from the time i updated ma phone to JB.
    To start with all that was supposed to be overcome(butter effect, smooth scrolling, super fast navigation etc...) has increased.
    I have seen ma phone drastically slowdown and it takes approx 4 seconds to open up call logs or message logs.
    I did a factory restet too. It resolved the issue for about 20 mins. Later same pain.
    I thought there was some problem with ma phone but friend of mine who had S3 too updated it same day and guess what, he calls me and logs the same issue.
    processor consumption is bad. it is always 700mb or more consumption. I have the basic apps and nothing additional in my phone, still it is slower than basic android phones.
    I liked ICS better and faster. God some one please help us.

    I can't get it to work either. Can get the player shortcut on the lock screen, but that's it. There's a feature in Accessories to enable audio applications in the quick panel, but that's not helping for the lock screen. I know many of the popular music apps on the Play store do support lock screen awareness and control, but I quit using them under ICS as they were randomly crashing. Not sure if that was an ICS artifact or a problem with the third party players. I'm going to try some of those soon as the lock screen controls are a nice feature.

    My wife received the update and the contacts feature stopped working. This in turn caused the phone app and Google voice apps to no longer work. Our google contacts would also no longer sync for any of our accounts. Not sure which thing was the cause and which was the effect but the end state was a non-functional device. I tried 3 factory resets (just in case the first two didn't work) and they had no effect.

    I know for sure the our google accounts sync fine on ICS and other variants of Jelly Bean (Nexus 7 and Dinc Evervolv versions) so it's clearly an issue with the VZW SG III JB variant.

    Called Verizon and they shipped a replacement device which is still on ICS so all is back to normal. At least until Verizon decides to push the Jelly Bean update to our phones again.
