    As it states.. Updated today and it won't charge unless I restart my phone.. Anyone else with this issue? I can't see the charge icon.. Please confirm. It's a huge issue if it's on on all phones.

    I am not having problems after the update with my charger I use at work. Not the stock charger.

    I noticed the same thing using a micro usb wall charger that i always used before the update. It is not the charger that came with the phone.

    I'm having the same issue with my Samsung charger from my S3. Sometimes I see the charge icon and sometimes I don't. I unplugged and re-plugged this morning and it started to charge, not sure why this is happening. Do you think this update had something that detects Samsung OEM accessories? I wouldn't think they would have started this yet.

    I am having that problem with any charger that is not a Samsung charger. Connects fine with my Samsung charger but my car charger is a Motorola charger and won't connect.

    I am using the Motorola rapid car charger (round with a blue LED), and mine is NOT charging as well. I had an issue when I first got the S4 with very slow charging in the car, it seemed to resolve on its own. Hopefully a fix will be available.

    I've got the same charger, and had the problem of it not recharging after I upgraded to Android 4.3. I just rebooted the phone (not a factory reset, just a plain reboot) and now it's charging fine with the Motorola charger.

    This is definitely a problem after the update. My 2 amp car charger requires several attempts before the S4 recognizes it and begins to charge. Never once did it not recognize it on the first attempt prior to the 4.3 update.

    I have done reboots and a factory reset with no luck. A little frustrating.

    This just happened to me today. I restarted my phone twice without success. I finally decided to power off the phone for a while to see if that made a difference. While it was powered off, I noticed the battery charging icon was lit. I powered the phone back on, and now it seems to be working fine. Uuuugh, I hate updates!

    This is a definite issue with 4.3. If you try the charger again later it will not work again. There is no reason we should have to reboot every time you want to charge the phone.

    Exactly! I rebooted with the charger plugged in, worked fine until I unplugged it. Bach to square one.

    I am having the same issue and only started after the recent update. Some chargers work and others don't. The battery icon will flash and you hear the tone, but will not charge. If I reboot the phone, it will then work or if I switch to another charger it will work. It is not charger however, because sometime the one that wasn't working will work, and the one that was working won't work. Really frustrating.

    Having this issue as well with my Motorola car charger. Worked fine before the 4.3 update. Finally got my wifi toggle, but now I can't charge my phone in the car. Such fail.
    My phone was at 13% battery on the way to work today so I plugged it in and it wasn't charging, but then when I unplugged it I got the low battery message immediately each time. It's like it knew something was plugged in, but it wasn't actually charging.
    Oddly my phone charges on the usb wall charger from my thunderbolt.

    I'm also having this problem, but it seems somewhat random. I use 4 different chargers on a regular basis. One of them being the OEM charger. The phone charged just fine with each of the four chargers prior to the 4.3 update. After the update, most times when I plug in a charger, nothing happens. Occasionally, I can unplug and replug in the charger and get it to work. If nothing else, I can restart the phone while the charger is connected and it always charges after the restart. However, I don't want to have to restart my phone 4 times a day... what a pain in the ***. Anyone hear of a fix for this yet?

    Seems like a bunch are having the issue. There is a thread on the Verizon forums where a Verizon agent was trying to help at first. Others should post there so they MIGHT look into it.
