You are at your carrier's counter to let them set it up again. As to going back, no carrier I know of does that.

Thanks Bob , i am from Singapore. My carrier said this is not their problem. I am not very tech savvy and was hoping to get some ideas from Cnet forum. I read somewhere others have the same problems too and was advised to clear the cache and clear data for the respective app. I will probably give this a try. Thanks again. Happy

Clear data is something to try.

Android has some other ways but here, the carrier issues the update and does support such issues since they created the problem.

Then again, you have folk that install rooted roms and well, that's an entirely different discussion.

what about battery issues?

I didn't have that issue but I have noticed along with other note 3 users that kit kat seems to cause a heavier drain on the battery. Has anyone noticed the same? Just curious.

But CNET and other sites note how to curb the power drain.

But I must ask this question. Should be expect folk to look into this or should the makers start making more assumptions?
