    Having all kinds of issues since jelly bean update installed. Mail stalls, messaging stalls. sometimes failing to open. Have to say, I loved the S3 till this update of the OS. Now, I want to throw the phone against the wall. Can one restore ICS? Never had any problems with it.

    I've had zero problems since the update. Have you tried a battery pull and/or factory reset?

    I uninstalled Play Music updates and it's been working fine.
    My Play Music app will freeze, or stop playing all together when I receive a notification. The music stops and when I go to resume, it freezes and won't let me resume. The only way to resume is to restart the phone. big pain! Also, i've experienced the AUX/Phone speaker issue of the playback being switched off and on.

    Also, I've been getting a message every so often in various apps, sometimes it's happened multiple times in the same app, and it just interrupts and states "just a few moments while we prepare this application for use". Not sure why it's doing this, but it happens in apps that I've already been using. Anyone seen this?

    Right after the update, my phone started freezing and rebooting every 5-10 minutes. Sometimes it would freeze while I was doing something on the phone, and then reboot a few seconds later. I thought it was Juice Defender. When I uninstalled it, the phone seemed to be back to normal (except for the increased battery drain). However, I just turned off Mobile Data, and the phone froze and rebooted.

    Is anyone else having problems when they turn off mobile data? Every time I try, the phone freezes and reboots.
    I'm having the same freezing/rebooting problem but didn't have Juice Defender. I've had it do it while writing an email, when turning the wifi on/off, when talking on the phone (only Touchwiz reboot), and when I havn't even been doing anything on the phone. Seems like it is not happening as frequently more recently. I only got the update sometime last week (01/07/13).
    Did initially also have the camera/gallery freeze. But that seems to have been fixed now.
    The battery drain is pretty well gone and I did turn the network to CDMA/LTE (from Global). I have turned off the wifi unless I'm using but I still have my unlimited plan so I don't use it that much. The wifi scans every 5-10 seconds even if I'm connected with a strong signal so I figure it contributed to battery drain.

    I'll continue to look through forum to see if the reboot issue is solved but if someone has fix please reply.

    There's no getting rid of it without rooting your phone and installing a better Jelly Bean rom. My best advice would be to do a hard reset, so that everything from the update works as it should. Hopefully you'll have a much more happy phone.

    The last week or so, all of a sudden my phone will shutdown and restart at random times. It's probably happened 4 or 5 times.

    My phone has decided to start giving me the pop up message saying "just a moment while we prepare this application for use".

    This is very annoying as it causes a 10-15 second delay in whatever app I'm using.

    This is very annoying as you can probably tell.

    I am wondering if anyone has had this problem and found a solution to it?

    So far I have reset and run my phone with no apps or accounts on it, but the problem still appears.

    Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!

    I've been having a weird issue with folders since the update.

    I've got two main folders on my main screen, one for my most common direct dials and the other for testing.

    When I open the folder and select a shortcut to make a phone call, it takes me to the dialer and places the call.

    However, when I hang up and hit the button to shut down the dialer and go back to the home screen, the folder full of short cuts remains open.

    I have to hit the bottom button again to close the folder. Prior to the JB update, this folder would close itself when the dialer launched.

    Does anyone else have this bug?

    I did have this problem a few weeks ago. It probably did it 10 times to me in the span of 2-3 days. Very annoying. Haven't seen it since. I guess my advice is to ride out the storm.

    Yes. For some reason, the JB update leaves the folder open in the background when you run an app from a folder. So, when you hit the homescreen, it brings you back to that folder. It's really stupid. But, it's even worse. Instead of clicking the home button, try long-pressing for the multi-tasking menu. The app you were just in is NOT on that list. You have to hit home TWICE so that the folder is removed, and you're truly back to your homescreen. THEN if you long-press, you'll see the last app you were in, and can return. It's very very stupid and annoying.

    Ive also gotten this problem with the battery where it just takes forever to charge. Before the JB update in a few hours I'd be close to 100 percent, now it takes all night. Also at times when I go into any app that I would need the keyboard at times the keyboard never comes up. I'm using swype that came with JB and its quite annoying when i just sit there and it doesnt come up.

    Thanks for that. At least I know I'm not alone with this one. You would think, with as long as it took Samsung and Verizon to get JB out for the GS3, stuff like this would have been found.

    Absolutely, you would think it would be perfect! Seems that they just spend that time loading in as much bloatware and annoyances as possible. Like that wifi notification and the message that always pops up when you toggle off data. As much as they want to push you to use wifi instead of data, you would think that they would just let you turn data off without warning you every single time.

    Guess its time to root/unlock and try some roms that hopefully dont have the bugs that the official release has.

    I just got my S3 and it came with 4.1.1. I have noticed that the date, time & battery usage on the status bar does not update. It will for a little while then stops until I restart the phone. Can anyone give me any suggestions or insights into this issue?

    #1 -- I noticed this IMMEDIATELY after the update and I was like WTF. I can't find how to change this. My buddy said the new iOS and Jelly Bean both have this transparency thing -- but how do I adjust it? I feel like it hurts my eyes.

    I also noticed my gmail notifications provide some text from the message. I don't want that. Ugh

    I lose GPS lock after a few days.

    Start with a fresh reboot.
    GPS locks on quickly (verified with Maps and GPS Status app).
    after a few days I am no longer able to get GPS lock. Use GPS Status to reset/download GPS and still won't see any sats). Won't even show any sats as being visible.
    Reboot phone and able to lock again.

    Haven't narrowed down what app(?) is killing it.

    Never had a problem with ICS with this.
    Me too. It also randomly drops gps while using maps/navigation. Can't ever predict when it is going to work. Or not work due that matter.

    Texting has been fine for me all day. Could be a temporary network issue in your area. Here are the problems I've noticed.
    1. DNLA or Media Share - Nearby Devices: Stays in the "Organizing files for sharing with nearby devices..." forever. I know there are workarounds to this and I'm using some. Should work though.
    2. Mobile Hotspot: Force closes from Settings or via the Verizon Mobile Hotspot.
    3. Tethering: Force closes with USB. Have not tried Bluetooth.
    2-3 for me are becoming a sore point, particularly when this worked perfectly with ICS. I'm considering going back to ICS for this reason unless there are some good custom Jellybean based ROMs that can provide the same for 2-3.
    As others have pointed out in this thread and others, there are more annoyances like WiFi toggle missing from Notification bar, WiFi notification (really means WiFi is never truly off). Understand that workarounds exist if rooted, however, stuff like this should work or be available in stock images. If anyone has suggestions for how to solve 2-3 that would be awesome.
