Issues with Samsung Galaxy S2 since Jelly Bean update

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?

I don't have the pie chart looking button.  Do you need to load Google Now to get it? 

Trash can button?

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.

 

Anyone?

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=35877

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.google.android.calendar&hl=en

I usually have high RAM usage, but then, I use a lot of apps, so... I guess that's normal for me.

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.

You disabled Google Play?!

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.

Oh ok. I'm assuming you don't mean that you uninstalled the Google Play Store (aka Android Market).

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.

Maybe try clearing cache by holding volume up volume down and power buttons at startup until a menu pop up. Use volume down to select clean/ clear cache and power button to confirm.

Just did this and seem to have picked up some speed. Hopefully will help with battery life as well.
