    Since the last update all of my apps are so glitchy. Not sure if it's a issue with verizon or my phone had a issue.. My phone actually ran better before the last update. Is this a issue with all Verizon G3's?

    Nah, JB messed up a lot of apps for people. Most of them have been updated by now though, but you're not alone in getting a bunch of bugs after you update. It's probably not your phone, just something that went wrong somewhere. It happens.

    If you've tried the basic stuff like uninstalling and battery pulls etc, then the only fix will be a FDR, but it's almost a guaranteed fix. And if that doesn't work, then it's probably something with your phone. But unlikely, as this happened to a lot of folks. Just gotta ride it out till they're updated for JB....

    Most people recommend a Factory Data Reset after a major update like that. So try that first, set up your phone, reinstall all of your apps and then see how it does after about a day.

    While booted yes, but doing it while in recovery is usually more reliable in that it's able to clean everything out while nothing is running. But Idk how to get into the GSIII's recovery.

    Do as follows:
    Turn off your phone
    Once turned off hold the following buttons all at the same time

    Volume up button, home button, power button once again press in the order and remain holding all three till a slight vibrate is felt

    You're welcome :)
