Very excited that we have it now. However, the main bug I'm finding is that I get no text message notifications. Not in the lock screen, not in the notification tray. The only way to see is to constantly check my SMS inbox constantly. I've tried updated the phone 2 different times. I finally reset the device completely but to no avail. Anyone else having this or other issues?

scroll until you see notifications, make sure its checked, and then also make sure message preview is checked

Yeah, did that. I figured out that it was because I had a third party SMS app (Handcent) and that as long as it was installed, I couldn't receive text notifications. I just uninstalled Handcent, and now its working.

That's an interesting bug. I use another third-party texting app, but it channels through SMS, and I don't have this issue. Thanks for sharing.

I didn't see this particular issue. I noticed that my gallery shortcut on my homescreen disappeared, but it was there in the apps drawer. When I opened it, it asked about using the SD card. I said yes, and it's been working fine since then.
I'll have to get used to the new layout, though.

One thing that has me wondering since my update is it seems the battery drains a little quicker... has anyone else seen anything with that? Looking at my battery options screen, with 4 hours and 24 minutes on battery, starting at 100%, the battery is at 64%. The "Screen" is at 54% (1 minute screen timeout) and the "Android OS" entry is next at 16%. That seems like a high percentage for "Android OS"... wouldn't this be more like a single digit percentage? The next entry is "Android System" at 6%, which seems reasonable.

It seems that there are more APPs running in the background. The old OS came with an indicator APP that told you what was running and is no longer there with Jelly Bean. I downloaded AVG Antiviris which ahs a performance tab that shows what's running - to "kill"

Do you mean the "task manager" button at the bottom of the recent apps list? Yeah, that's gone, but it's been replaced by 3 buttons.
1. a pie chart looking button that shows all running apps. You can exit apps from there.
2. a Google Now button (little g).
3. a trash can button that apparently clears the list of recent apps.
I am also trying an app called Clean Master that, among other things, kills running apps in the background. Not sure it's helping, but...

You may want to try a 3rd party gallery app. I use one called QuickPic, which I like better than the stock Gallery app. Now, it has the limitation of only viewing photos/videos on your phone, and not ones synced with your Google+ Photos.
For Google+ Photos, I guess you can use the Google+ apps's photo feature, which is what I think Google wants you to use.

Does anyone else have a large amount of RAM being used, like 700+ on the regular
I don't have a whole lot of apps installed, and definitely close out processes I'm not using, yet it still gets hella high compared to previous OS versions.

After the upgrade, I cannot edit any existing calendar entries on the "My calendar" in my phone. If I duplicate the entry, I can edit the duplicate. I've also seen that when I view "My calendar" using a free app called "Business Calendar v1.3.3", I can edit the same apps that I am unable to edit using the default Google calendar!
Looks like this problem has not been fully resolved: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=

That's a weird issue. I'm using Business Calendar, and I haven't had any issues with adding or updating calendar entries.
Also, when you say that you're using the default Google Calendar, do you mean that you're using the Samsung calendar app that came with the phone, or the separate Google Calendar app? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.

I guess I'm referring to the Samsung calendar app. It's the one just called "Calendar" on the home screen with the green stripe above a white page with "31" on it. It looks like a top-bound spiral calendar, if that makes sense.
As I said, Business Calendar works just fine for new and existing entries, where the "Calendar" app won't let me edit anything existing.

I see that in the "Settings"->"Language and input"->"Keyboards and input methods", all three available keyboard choices are checked, with "Samsung Keyboard" and "Swype" dimmed but "Google voice typing" not dimmed. I can choose one default, but only between Samsung and Skype. I can update the settings for all three keyboards. It appears that all three keyboard methods are enabled and I can't check only one. Does anyone know why this is? I'm interested in having only one of the three enabled, in case it gives me some processing and/or battery usage improvement.

I finally got Gallery working (for the last two days). I disabled the new apps that came with Jelly Bean - Google + and Google Play and Mini diary Apps. Don't know if that was the actual cause but Gallery works so I'll leave them disabled.
They may becausing other problems.

I think this is because Swype has a partnership with Samsung to have their keyboard on all Samsung phones. So Samsung makes their own keyboard and the one from Swype the two possible default options, and they cannot be unselected or removed.
I tried disabling Swype in Application Manager, and you can, but it doesn't change the list of available keyboards. It does make it impossible to change the settings when the keyboard is disabled. I doubt that it'd make much difference in CPU or battery usage, though.

Yes. I unistalled the updates to Google Play, Magazine and Movies and Google + first. Then I was able to disable them in Settings/Applications Manager.
06-21-2013 08:52:34 PM
Sorry for the confusion. I just meant the Apps for Google Play Books; Play Magazines and Play Movies and Google +. The rest are intact since everything works now.
