  1. Mine says the same thing now too, I had the update Tuesday but somehow managed to postpone it because I was at work. It sucks that we don't have a leak or kies hasn't received it yet.
  2. When you used Odin did it erase anything or did it leave everything in tack like the OTA does?
  3. Anyone else having this same issue with charging from car charger.Mine stopped charging from the car as well. Sent from my SCH-R970 using Tapatalk My wife's has been having issues charging in her car after the update... Had to reboot the phone, then it worked Sent from my SCH-R970 using Tapatalk That's what I had to do as well but once you unplugged it, it wouldn't work the next time you plugged it in again.
  4. For me this update to 4.3 has been really laggy. My car charger will no longer charge the phone unless you turn the phone off and then plug it in and turn it on again. I also have worse battery life now than I did with 4.2.2. Not sure whats going on here, but even my sisters S4 won't charge anymore with the car charger either and it's a USCC S4 with 4.3 as well.
  5. I got the S4 yesterday morning around 8 am. As for signal it does have better signal than my S3 did but it doesn't seem to be that much of a difference. I know that I get 4g where I didn't with my S3. The S view cover is nice, and mine lays flat on the phone, if it doesn't for some like I've seen here already y'all should try creasing the side a little. The S4 definitely has a much more sensitive screen, and scrolls maybe a hair bit faster than the S3.
  6. I know that I was having problems using all the voice features too. No version of S Voice I tried would work so I switched roms, but the rom has been updated now to version RLS12. So maybe it's fixed now.
  7. Yeah I know there's no point in complaining anymore. Possibly time to carry my business elsewhere. They never offered a replacement I had to mention it and the tech said she didn't think it would help, and her supervisor said to take the phone in the store and tell them to replace it. So I don't know anymore. Sent from my SCH-R530U using Xparent Skyblue Tapatalk 2
  8. I tried to get them to replace it but they are dead set on sending it off to be fixed, and I'm traveling a lot so I don't really have the time for that right now. The techs on the phone said that the only thing could do was send out a refurb but we all know how that goes. No dead pixels, nfc is off, the only way to cool it down is either turn it off, or put it in airplane mode.
  9. Yeah this sucks. The techs in the store don't know anything and on the phone they aren't much help either. Customer service is lacking. It's bad when two s3's get way different service results right beside each other. We never even figured out why the sim went bad.
  10. Haha ain't that the truth! The heat is from the bottom front and back in the area where the microsd and sim card are located.
  11. I swapped batteries with my sisters S3 and the same thing happened with the heat, but her phone stayed cool with my battery. Thanks though.
  12. I had flashed our version 1.8 of leankernel by driodroidz and had Wizenhiemer 1.7 for awhile. then just recently went back to stock 4.1.1 for the techs in order to have my sim card replaced. Now i'm running the stock 4.1.2.
  13. My galaxy s3 messed up the sim card and that had to be replaced to get a 4g signal again. Now my phone gets hot to the touch and is roaming and has no data when another galaxy s3 on the same network right beside me has 4g and is cold. Several phone calls to tech support and several trips into the store and they say there's nothing wrong with my phone. It's completely stock now with 4.1.2 and no added apps. Any solutions? My phone is only 4 months old. Sent from my SCH-R530U using Xparent Skyblue Tapatalk 2
  14. Yea maybe that was the problem, just assumed it would work. Thanks guys!
  15. They are all TW kernels that I have tried. I've never known a kernel to be rom specific other than TW or AOSP based roms. Which I only use TW roms. I decided to try out imoseyons latest leankernel version 2.0 for TW but it doesn't work without breaking the radio. I've been around since the original Galaxy S so i'm well seasoned.
