    Update went well but I hate the new voice in S-Voice. I also can't seem to find where to set my hands free to turn on when my phone pairs with my car.

    I am an unlimited data Verizon user and I'm considering getting the S4 because of free wireless tethering ability with Foxfi (or others) without root. I know it works cause I tested it on a demo model at a retail location. Any Verizon users out there that updated to 4.3 having difficulties with Foxfi or PDAnet+ wireless thether? Also 16 GB or for $50 more get the 32 GB? I'm not a big gamer, but do play a few. Thanks!

    $50 isn't much for more than double the storage. 16GB only gives you around 10GB so the 32GB would have around 25/26GB

    Loving the new Verizon 4.3 update! However, I haven't seen a lot of talk on the forums about one of the most important changes in 4.3: TRIM support! What this means is that Android 4.3 can now instruct the flash storage controller when to collect / recycle unused data pages / blocks. The net result is that devices running 4.3 will no longer become sluggish over time.

    Update:
    Music App problem has appeared to clear up after a battery pull.
    Not for me. The Samsung hub app is the music app on my lock screen and I don't even use it. Battery pull, and reboots and it still happens. Not sure why.

    Go to settings
    then click more options
    Hit about phone on the bottom
    and then hit software update.

    That will get the ball rolling. Good Luck!

    Verizon is the best carrier. I don't base my mobile phone experience on update schedules! I get blazing 4g LTE service almost everywhere I go. Best carrier I've been with and I had them all!

    My Wife had that after the update too. She had to go in and manually change it.

    Have you tried using the VERIZON update manager? That's the pc software that's built into the phone and pops up when you tether your phone to your lap top or pc.

    The new voice ... it is used by Google Maps, right? If so, it is changed there as well. Sounds less human now.

    Not really a bug per say. When I open an app from a folder after I close that app and come back to the home screen that folder is still open. Is there a setting to fix this somewhere?

    So I tried to go into settings and change my lockscreen widget apps and it's grayed out! But it is turned on because that's what I had set prior to the update. Anyone know how to change this??

    Does Tethering still work if you have unlimited data? I can just hit "home" and it will still tether after the nag screen pops up - just making sure this is still the case before I upgrade to 4.3.

    Many thanks!
    what tethering app do you use are you rooted?

    I just updated and everything appeared to go ok. I am not rooted, but do use Nova Launcher Pro.

    A few observations:

    1) My settings icon on the main screen is not a gear anymore, but an Android icon. When I click on it I get a App Not Installed error. Settings from the pulldown still works, though.
    Thanks!
    I saw that on mine as well (with Nova Launcher Pro). I just deleted it and replaced with the original Gear settings icon.

    I am not rooted and have been using "Fast WiFi Tether - Free" and it's worked great on my S4 running 4.2.2.
    I've heard 4.3 breaks the ability to hit the home button after the nag screen and still be in hotspot mode. Before I upgrade I was hoping some kind soul could verify this for me or not.

    I have found that if you use swipe setting for screen lock and have Multiple Widgets selected, that option will no longer be greyed out and you can select either favorite apps or camera to be displayed on your lock screen. Hope this helps
