Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
Anyone else having issues with their Note 3 GPS? I'm having an issue were every time I plug or unplug the charger from my phone the GPS drops out. I have to then toggle the GPS on/off in my quick settings to get it working again while navigating. It also seems to drop the signal when I get an incoming phone call while using the navigation app. I have confirmed this same behavior on 2 other friends Note 3's. I'm hoping this is just a software issue that will be fixed in a future os update.
Customers who have an AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 3 began to receive the latest version of Android 4.4 KitKat today.

I agree with you, dealing with ATT is not easy, I am sure Verizon is worst.
I switch over from Tmobile, ATT network is so much better, but dealing with a messed up phone crazy bloatware and has an extra tight lock on the bootloader is a bit too much for me.
When my contract is up i am going to get an iPhone (an unopened box) sell it as new and use the iphone money to buy an international unlocked phone or a Nexus phone.
Never again am i going to deal with ATT phone, that is locked down like fortknox.
You guys might want to add on some negative reviews on this. I have added mine. Show some people power. We can do things if we do it all together.
Since it's becoming obvious that AT&T doesn't care about some random forum users, time to see how much bad publicity AT&T wants from this. Along with @tomgutz 's links, how about letting Engadget know about this? If enough of us complain and provide the link to this thread, then perhaps they'll post something. Here's the link to submit a story idea: http://www.engadget.com/about/tips/ . I just sent them some info.
I say we also email our local TV channels as they're always looking for these stories too. Bad publicity is what it took for Apple to acknowledge their issues with the antenna and then their Maps app. In both cases news outlets got hold of the story and Apple was forced to take ownership. We need the same thing to happen here and maybe AT&T will finally take notice.
We apologize for the delay. Rest assured that as soon as we have an update, we will post it in this thread. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience.
There is a lot of ranting and raving on this forum, I think AT&T could calm the masses with answers to the questions below.
We know how it works, you were put in charge of monitoring the forums and your reporting to management on this issue has dissappeared through the back channels. You don't get any information regarding the status of the complaint, whether it is being addressed or not. If you could, please take a moment to try and dig up some answers to these questions:
a) has the complaint has been heard in the proper department to address the issue?
b) does AT&T expect to assign any resources to work / investigate the issue in the near future?
Hey all you smart people, maybe you can get paid to fix the problems!
Well by saying as soon as you have an update you'll post it, does that mean that AT&T has acknowledged the problem and is "ACTUALLY" in the process of working on a fix for it?
Can't believe no offical response from ATT yet and 10 pages users posting on here.
I am going to report soon if my GPS is still working, might take the car out today and driving out to NJ this Sat, so should really know by this weekend.
good luck with them calling you back. the note 3 just worthless gps period...some phones are just like that. i regret the day i brought mine. i put it away and am back to using my note 2. at least the gps is solid.

Also, I almost hit a car that pulled out in front of me and wasn't paying total attention ...why CUZ I *** TRYING TO GET THE GPS TO WORK! This is a company that always sends message "don't drive n text !" Hey how bout fix the GPS to have working so that we can drive safe too.

I use gps tracker for my rides.. very disappointed in the gps on the note 3.. hopefully it will be addressed. . It has nothing to do with atat or 4g.. my s4 worked flawlessly
I signed up to report having the same issue. I depend on GPS navigation to do my job and this is becoming a big problem.
Clicked the "me too" button to add another one.
Still waiting for a solution that does not include root.
Hi All, I've been having GPS signal dropping issues with Galaxy Note 3 as well. Glad I'm not the only one; at first I thought it was just my Navigon app, but GPS drops out with Google Maps and Sygic Navigation as well.
I've tried using the GPS Satellite utility on GooglePlay to download new GPS data, but no effect. Otherwise, I have to toggle the GPS on and off radio on and off to get signal back. Invariably, it'll lose signal again a few minutes later though. I used to have the same issue with my Galaxy S2, but my Note 2 never had the problem.
