    Made my wifi and 4G choppy. I didn't have an issue with it from the beginning, now I do. My upload speed is slower.

    Verizon has an OTA update that clears up a lot of the call quality issues people were having. If you go into settings, and then to the bottom to About Phone. Tap the first option Software Update.
    Then to check for update, and it will show you the most recent.

    Voice on the other end seems louder and clearer. I haven't used my speakerphone yet though. My problem was that it was clear, just not loud enough. Hopefully speakerphone is louder now.

    Does this update disable current root exploits? I suspect that is the primary reason for it knowing Verizon. The rest is probably placebo effect.

    I updated a couple of days ago but I've noticed no differences. Same annoying WiFi connectivity alerts. I never had an issue with garbled calls so nothing has changed there.

    I got it. I had clear calls before so not sure there. I noticed yesterday how poor the signal strength was yesterday for the first time. We went to our favorite mall that I have always had service at with my Bionic and I had no service at all. My wife was right beside me with her 6 year old envy 2 and had service. This was after the update. I wish I had known this sooner because I work at the hospital and take call for emergency scans. I couldn't go in any stores because I have to be able to take the calls. I sure hope this can be improved! Is there anything I can do to help it?

    In my case both signal and sound are worse than before.

    Call quality has definitely improved, but am dropping to 3G more often (Phoenix,Az) and buffers a lot on WiFi. Did a factory reset after allowing the update to install, thought that would be the best way to experience the update but worked better before the update.

    Yeah normal calls are fine, but the speakerphone sucks balls. I was hoping for a louder speakerphone. Maybe I'll get that Jawbone that I've wanted for forever on Black Friday.

    My 4G speeds took a dump. Getting about half what I used to. Is there a way to tell if you are on Band 3 or the new Band 4 ?

    hope I didn't hijack this if so please advise.

    new here so.. I had same update all is well afterwards. now on subject of signal issue when I first had note 3 first 2 days of ownership was in a hospital no 4g lte went to 3g then to cdma then to 1x then nothing no signal like others here. so asked the verizon salesperson about it asked can I do a *228 nope sim card doesn't allow that feature huh!

    so asked about a factory data reset feature thought he was going to swallow his tongue said no do not do that!


    well seeing it was a brick anyways I did just that and since then 3 bars of signal at home and depending where I am at in city 3-5 bars in same hospital a steady 4g lte signal of one bar yes it is low but I could text email surf the web make a phone call! I haven't a clue what that reset did but It cured my signal issues!!
    now unfortunately I didn't enable sync contacts to gmail so if you have other ways of doing same trust me do it prior to the reset otherwise contact list finger cramps will be at your doorstep LOL.
