    New Kit Kat supposedly doesn't allow you to select SD card according to Google. I use Camera Zoom forever. Even new stock Android camera app doesn't allow. Saves direct to phone storage. I think even if it says SD card to save doesn't. I would double check your camera app because mine said save to SD card and took pictures but never saved them anywhere till I change location to phone.

    Is anyone else having trouble with Gmail not syncing properly? It will sync if I manually tell it to, but it doesn't seem to sync on it's own, or it's really slow. Any ideas ?

    Update.

    I have verified that Gmail only syncs when I manually tell it to do so. I feel like there may be a setting not checked, but I don't know where to look.

    Everything was checked. Strangely enough, after a day of not working, it started working again.

    I have seen this happen when Google is working on the Servers. Nothing you can do about it

    This sucks
    4 hour battery life. Won't take a charge once it hits 10%, needs battery pull.
    How do I go back, who do I complain to?

    It charges way faster. Less than 45 min I've got 60 %. Is the battery not getting a full charge. It charged all night.

    I am getting the exact same message. I too have tried every password I have used. What password are they talking about?

    For some reason, FoxFi worked when I entered the password I used to lock the screen. I also found out how to make it work without a lock screen.

    Now there's an issue with sim card it says no sim card on screen. You have to get a replacement cause it from the software kit kat AT&T says it's a major issue they will replace your S4. They say not to install the update unless it a fix for the sim card issue.

    I have the same issue. Only mine comes and goes. Certain apps I have stored on my sd card now have no icon just a black area that you can barely read showing sim card error

    You would think they would test this software update to make sure it works ok instead of messing up a great phone.

    Just to let everyone know...
    I got the KitKat update on my Verizon S4 the days after they released it. My phone was fine...everything worked as expected, except for my signal strength. It fluctuated allot. So...I did the right thing and factory reset twice to realign the radios. After I completed that. I toggled thru all the options in the network service section between gsm..lte...global. noticed then that there was an issue with the tower by my house. I completely reflashed my device and proceeded to do the toggle once more. After all the work...my phone runs the way it used too! Fast...battery life is slightly better..charges faster! The issues allot of you are dealing with is allot to do with the SDCard security. If you just redo your phone and back everything up you would be fine! It takes me a solid day to reset a device and reload everything back on to it, but in the end...fixes so much! I would say education in this area is a big deal, and encourage all to attain good cell phone practices! ;)

    As a side note, yes there are bugs..most of them are trivial. We would like them to fix them....But they make no money off of this that the corporations can tell...

    So...Backup, Reflash, Reset, and Restore!
    And enjoy the outcome! You might be surprised! Even a computer needs a fresh load of the operating system at times! Your phone is no different! ;)

    Happy phones to you all! ;)

    I stated to reflash the device using a computer. Not reset in the os. This will rewrite all the phone and fix many issues. Thanks for your attention to detail. Before reading or trying it! ;)
