    Have it holding to update, waiting to see if anyone else has issues with the update.

    Have you noticed any real changes to performance, or apps, other than improving sound quality? Anything different with calls or call quality, including reception?

    Call quality is better up to this point, but waiting for others to confirm. Performance is still great and apps still the same. No problems, after update I do a hard reset to stabilize software update. Not a factory reset but a hard reset. Pull my battery out for 10 minutes and put back in!!!

    Updated mine. And all issues tied to call quality seem to be gone. Made a couple of calls. One from home. One in the car and know it changed towers most likely. And it's crystal clear. Exactly as I hoped it would be when it was released. At least it's fixed.

    It ran like a Champ before....and is running like a Champ after. This could be the most complete phone I've ever had, and I've had all the Palm Treo's, Iphones and Blackberrys, various Androids etc....

    They so can... For unlimited data users unless they pay (or use workarounds like they are).

    They can't stop people on shared plans... Is what your article is talking about.

    Sorry for the stupid question... I'm new to android, as I was tempted away from ios land by this phone. Where is this update and how do I install it? I've not been impressed with call voice quality and my gps loses signal regularly. Maybe this update will help. Thank you.

    Go to system settings then go all the way to the bottom about phone, first option is software update click on it and follow instructions! Simple.

    Updated a little while ago. All good, so far.

    Will VZW get any credit for updating so quickly and resolving these issues or will people complain?

    Anybody else notice a less amount of system RAM being used now after the update?
    Before, I would be lucky to have "only" 1.7gb being used. Now I notice I can get that number to drop to 1.1gb.

    I had zero issues before the update, got the notification this morning so figured might as well. Hopefully I continue to have no problems

    Recieved the update tonight, all well so far, sound quality has improved. Kudos to Verizon for updating and resolving quickly (did I just say that?)

    Very happy with the update and improved call quality and in my office there is a spot where I got no signal and now can get 3G in the same spot. I get LTE everywhere else in the bldg.

    I could not agree with you more! I was a die hard Apple user until I decided to make the transition over to the Note 3. BEST PHONE EVER
