    I get the nag screen too. I didn't install suspecting just the reason you posted. I'm sure ROMS will be posted soon that have whatever benefits from the update without killing root. I haven't seen any exploits to reroot it after the update either. Do you know a way to get rid of the nag screen?

    If your contacts are synched to your gmail account, no you will not lose them. You can temporarily copy over your pictures to your computer if you want to back them up. Or sign up for a dropbox account and upload all those pictures there for safekeeping.

    No need to hurry to do the factory reset (from what I can see, everything else works after the update "except" the WiFi toggle). Buy an SD card and then do the FDR. Another option, is Verizon has media backup for a charge.

    I would personally recommend Samsung, Kingston, and Sandisk. I did hear Sandisk had a bad batch of cards go out though, so you may want to hang onto your receipt if you opt for Sandisk. Any of these 3 are always top notch imo.

    You're going to read about Class. On the device itself, where the card is going of course, you won't notice a difference in transfer speed between a class two and class 10. However, on a computer when transferring files to the SD card through an external adapter (not the phone) you will notice a difference in speed. And iirc, the s4 can read a card up to 64gb.

    You can stop by your local electronics store, but usually online retailers tend to be cheaper than stores. Amazon and NewEgg are two that I always recommend when looking for any cards or memory of any type. If you have a Fry's in your area that's another good place to check out. Stores like Best Buy, Target, Walmart, etc. I'd avoid when it comes to getting electronics.

    I prefer Sandisk..make sure you buy from reputable dealer. There are also Kingston, Transcend and others.

    Buy the most GBs you can afford as it is pretty cheap. 32GB run around $22 in most places. Your Samsung will handle up to a 64GB card.
