    Default Clicking Some Notifications Doesn't Unlock Phone

    Does anyone else have this issue? Sometimes when I click a notification (ones I've noticed for sure are Facebook and Weatherbug) it doesn't unlock the phone. I have to unlock the screen and then the app will already be open and up and running.

    I have just noticed this since updating to 4.3. Does anyone else notice this? And/or know how to fix it?

    Thanks!

    Man, has no one else noticed this? My wife's S4 does it too. It's incredibly annoying.

    I'm having the same issue after the update. Same exact deal, when I slide down the notifications window and tap on facebook messenger or weatherbug it just goes right back to the lock-screen. However once you unlock the screen those two clicked on notifications are open and running.

    Gmail and my exchange mail do open from the notification window though.

    Yup. Certain ones work, others don't. It's really annoying. I hope there's some kind of fix soon.

    Yeah, looks like this is definitely a problem. Heard the Note 3 does it, too. It must be something with 4.3.

    Bump...This seriously need to be addressed. Even with Facebook alone not just the messenger it does the same thing.

    I agree completely. I think it's a bigger issue that it gets credit for. So far I've noticed Facebook, Facebook messenger, Twitter, Weatherbug. I'm sure there's a lot more. Those are just some of the main apps I use.

    I am surprised that it hasn't been addressed yet. A web search yeilds one result which is this page. I've posted a link to this page on several news sites that have recent activity regarding the 4.3 update.

    I was just planning to take the lock off, or try a lockscreen app. Works for Gmail but not much else.

    Yeah, they need to get this taken care of. That's a huge pain that wasn't there before 4.3.

    It's also on the Note, so you'd think this would get more play and attention.

    I was wondering if anyone had heard anything about this yet? This is driving me to the X now, got a MotoMaker on order. I do like my S4, but some of the quirks and issues like this just drive me crazy. I wish there would be something updated to fix this. How is this not an issue that gets more fanfare?

    Looking on several forums and nothing yet. Anticipating a new update will fix it. Certainly doesn't deter my love for the GS4.

    Nope. Haven't heard a peep about it. You'd think that it would be an easy fix.

    I am wondering if this is an app issue, some that have updated recently now seem to unlock the phone.

    On my lockscreen I have the Phone app, Messaging app, Facebook app and the Twitter app. If I swipe up they all open fine. If I hit the Home button it takes me to my Home page. Are you using a Password to open your Home page? I only swipe to get to home page. Maybe having a password is the issue.

    No, it's meaning when the screen is locked and you get a notification and you swipe down the notification bar. Clicking on the notification doesn't unlock the device in all apps. Just some of them. This worked before 4.3.

    Has this been addressed yet? I've been using a Moto X for a little while, but still miss my S4 and want to go back. But I'd like to see this working before I do.
