So I went to send a text yesterday and it was taking forever and I had to make a call. I went to make the call and nothing happened. So I tried another number and the same thing. Then the text finally went through and the second call started. I stopped it as I didn't want to call that number. Then I went to call the original number and it starts to dial and then just ends the call. Tried again and the same thing. Tried the other number and again the same thing. Rebooted the phone and it worked fine. Have had a the phone over a year and this never happened before. Anyone else have something similar happen since the update?

Since voice and text go "over the same channel", as it were, you can't make a call while a text is still trying to send. It's like having a camera app fail because you still have a barcode reader open, so 2 apps are trying to use the same hardware.

Solution? If the text hasn't sent yet, don't try to make a phone call.

I understand that, but after the text went through the call function stopped working and I had to reboot to get it working again.
