    Are other people having a ton of problems since updating to Jelly Bean?

    My biggest one is that it keeps temporarily deleting all my text messages. It will just be blank and say "You have no messages." I'm forced to restart the phone before I can see them again. This has happened 4 times now.

    I keep getting a warning about "roaming" and it seems to be connected to when I use wifi, which is sparingly. It gives me this spiel about extra charges when going out of country and if I want to accept the charges for this trip. Meanwhile, I'm in my basement...

    The little headphone icon, which I found very useful for at work, seems to no longer exist. This is a nuisance more than a glitch though.

    Is anyone else having these problems?

    Early on I had a few strange things happen but nothing I could really put a finger on. The only real problem I've had was with the camera going flaky on me. I tried multiple reboots without success. I finally pulled the battery and I've not had a problem since.

    I'm not sure what you mean by updating over the air. I'll try this method tonight when I get a chance.

    Something else that's been happening since the update is that the Google Play app gets screwing up on me. I'll be listening to an album, but at some point it'll decide it doesn't want to work anymore. What it will do is not skip to the next track when it ends. The timer keeps counting up as if the song is still playing, but it's over and silent. When I try clicking pause or loading up a different song, it won't do anything. It's just stuck like that.

    Glad I'm not the only one. I flashed JB through that site. Going to try a FDR today after I back everything up.

    My GPlay was working fine at first but starting yesterday I'm getting that same problem. I'll report back after the reset, though it looks like it hasn't helped others.

    All well until today. Now when pressing home button it lands one page right instead of on middle home screen. Weird but consistent. Any idea how to fix?

    This is a setting. From the home screen hit your left (menu) button, and select edit. Now drag and order your home pages appropriately.

    While Brendons right, I don't think thats your issue. For whatever reason the default home page was changed. So do the same steps as suggested, but when all the screens appear, you'll see a little house in the right corner of each. Tap whichever one you want to be the home screen and it'll turn blue. Hope this helps.

    Thanks but this did not fix. I can drag my home screens around bu the "wrong" Karen one always has the blue "home" Karen icon selected. How do I tell JB that it has the wrong center home screen?

    k1ngr4t has the right idea. Forgot about the home icon in the top right corner.

    My Internet connection has been sluggish since the update. Can't tell if it's my ISP or 4G I switch back and forth between the two and it still sucks. I reboot it's better for a while then back to a slow connection for both.

    I got the OTA upgrade the first day it was listed by Verizon as being available to its SG3 customers. The download and installation both were completed with out any issues noted at that time. Since then my phone is faster and have had none of the issues listed in the thread. I generaly do a 'hard reset' back to factory settings with my devices when ever there is a major upgrade like this one. Some say that is a necessity, some say its optional and some say its actually worthless. To each his own I guess.

    Quadrant score average was 6030. Speedtest.net readings average 23215 dowload and 16560 upload.

    Since the jellybean update I've noticed that my docked homescreen apps keep disappearing. Has this happened to anybody else?

    My screen was flickering today. It looked like a software issue fortunately a rep at Verizon saw it and noted it on my account.

    This has happened to me with a previous phone and the only thing that fixed it was an FDR. Not sure what caused it but this sounds like pretty much the same thing...
