    Strange, when my notification came up, it allowed me to defer the install and put in a time for later in the day.

    PS - VzW's new Unlimited plan will fix that for you!

    I am talking about the download, not the actual install. I did get the "install later" options, but the software download gave no option to delay. In any case, VZW's new unlimited plan will cost me way more than I pay now. I come nowhere near my limit, so I'm not planning to change - that was sort of a joke.

    Ah. I must not have been paying attention, I didn't think it downloaded the package until I hit the install button.

    Different scenarios for different people; I saved about $120/month plus eliminated data overage fees when I switched plans!

    Haha. Actually, I haven't checked, but it was "supposedly" just a security patch update

    Got this patch Tue the 16th. Just realized can no longer sync with Gmail on phone or even access the play store! I don't use gmail as my primary email so didn't notice till I was trying to use an app that has to be verified by Google Play (poweramp paid version). It stopped working and says it cannot verify with Google Play that I purchased it. Tried to access Google Play and just get a blank screen. Went to accounts and some accounts will sync but gmailv contacts and people won't sync. Weird, anyone else having similar issues?

    Had that issue after the update to 7.0, but this security update has been fine. I can't remember the exact steps, but I think if you clear the cache on the Google Play Services app, it might fix it. If I find the post with the fix, I'll edit this

    Here you go (a similar issue came up when I updated to 7.0)
    I wasn't able to get into anything Google. No Gmail, no Play Store. Couldn't sync anything. Took me two hours of searching for a solution. I cleared the dalvik cache, then cleared the data to Google Play Services and Google Play Store. I restarted again, and got in once I agreed to the Google terms and conditions.

    Thank you Mahers, clearing ALL the caches and restarting worked!

    After the update, my bluetooth turns off, every time I turn off my phone. Everything else seems to work fine.
