    Verizon has no solution because this update was to be the solution. Samsung has no solution either. Each is blaming the other and in the meantime I have a 1x phone with no gps. Can anyone please help me?

    Battery pull
    Sim card pull
    Cache partition wipe
    Resetting to LTE V's global
    Hard reset
    Update PRL
    Update to global roaming always on
    Deleted new applications

    My phone slowed with the first update, but with the "fix", it's now completely lost 4g. I rarely get 3g and gps is next to worthless as even if it catches a signal, it loses it in less than a minute.

    Sounds to me like something worthy of vzw sending you a replacement...... Looks like you have tried everything.... Maybe go to vzw and have them try a different sim.....

    Darn. I was hoping to not have to do that. I will likely either go with the S4 or go back to a Motorola phone. This phone was almost perfect until the "update". I am profoundly disappointed with both Verizon and Samsung. Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate it.

    I think your device has defective hardware and a different unit will solve the issue.... Try Odin flashing back to an older version and see if the issue is fixed.. Then you will know

    The original update broke the wife's , neighbor and my phone. The follow up fixed it. Can VZW send you a refurb?
