1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    My wife says a new update was downloaded by her phone recently and both of our phones have started acting funny in recent weeks. Hers runs into a variety of issues, such as an incoming text messed up her google maps navigation so it no longer would show the map. Hers also freezes up for a bit, then starts working again several minutes later.

    For mine, the battery usage has drastically changed. It's on "maximum battery saver", and I don't use many applications in general, so I would only need to charge my phone once/week, or once every 4-5 days. Now it's not lasting much more than 24-36 hours before I need to throw it on the charger. So the battery is only lasting 1/3 the time. Also we have a network extender through verizon. Typically it should show 3-4 bars if I'm in the same room as it, one or two bars if I'm a room or two away. Now it shows zero bars all the time, and only shows good signal strength once it dials a number. These two items could be related, as past phones would burn through battery charges quickly if it couldn't find a network to attach to. I suppose the question is, why does it suddenly not consider the network extender to be a valid network until you dial?

    So the burning question for us is... What changed? These weird problems started cropping up for both of us about 2-3 weeks ago. Is there some new patch or update being rolled out through Verizon?
