    I've been using my S4 for almost 6 months very happily..however, ever since the OTA update... my SMS has this weird issue. When I go to compose a new text, and I start typing in the name, it recognizes my input as a number. Example: If I go to type in "Andrew" it will recognize it as "263739" I've been searching google ALL over many forums and cant seem to find anyone who has had this issue.

    Before you reply... I've tried deleting handcent (my default sms) and reinstalling... no luck. I even downloaded other SMS clients and the same issue occurs. I don't understand what could be causing this and how the problem persists across different apps.

    EDIT: I found a thread that apparently a battery pull fixes this. I will try it and post another update.
