It sounds to me like you may have a bad app installed. It could be a game, photo editing software or something like that.You can back up everything to the Samsung Cloud and put remaining files on an SD card or your computer.You may look at your apps and remove anything that is 3rd party. Let us know if this fixes things.If it has already 'infected' your phone, I don't think there's much you can do except back up your data, doing a full factory reset and then update.Again, sorry, but I am pretty sure it's an app.It could also be the phone that is defective, so if this doesn't work, you should use your warranty. Best of luck!
The issue that I have seen with most people is they need to kind of reprogram the messenger app. The 'Chat' settings and Advanced messaging support has to be selected to all unlimited.But if you have gotten RCS messaging 1.0 you have to set a group chat limit and it should work out.
To be able to get full coverage, you may want to check to see if your phone that supports the full network including Band 4 (2100/1900 MHz), Band 12 (700 MHz) and Band 71 (600 MHz).GSM Arena will tell you what your phone is compatible with.
There is an application called Samsung Smart Tutor in the Galaxy Apps that puts you in touch with a Samsung Electronics expert and if allowed, you can show them your screen so they can walk you through this.I've been with T-Mobile for 14 years. I have used the Samsung Galaxy Note series after the Sidekick died out.In my experience, Samsung devices are vulnerable to how haywire by one simple setting out of place. It's technically not a bug; before the One UI, TouchWiz had its fair share of problems.
In that case it could have likely been a game or an app with malware encoding and does something like photo editing, but I can see how that would crash a phone doing an update when it goes through each app for optimization. If it hits a bad one, then in theory that could happen.
Fake news? Listen clearly, do not ever use a Trump term to me. Me and that bigot and Kellyanne have nothing in common.None of what I said is false or misleading. Go check yourself.Prove I'm wrong.You are just a whiny little punk. Do not ever say I'm a liar when I try to help you. I don't care if you get the update. You are on your own.
Concerning the Security Patch, I think you're right because the S7 series got March's.If your privacy is ever compromised by the lack of Security Updates, I'm very sure T-Mobile would completely understand and make it right somehow. As long as you safely install safe apps (there are malicious apps that make it to Google Play), keep Lookout on and active, you should be okay. However, I'm pretty sure that identity protection is included with JUMP/JOD.I would have no idea what would be a good estimate; it literally could be released any minute now.
Very true, and they're easily the least durable series of phones(iPhone's).You would switch carriers just because of an update? I doubt it. Just because AT&T and Cricket have the update, their network is nowhere near as good as ours.Also, the update is rolling out ANY day now.
Well it's true about them wanting us all to upgrade every year, or something. Though it may not seem like it, between Apple and Huawei, Samsung has valid competition.I've read some comments from people saying things like "I am so sick of never getting the update! I'm switching to an iPhone!".Ironically, it doesn't even appear one iota that Apple even tests their software. Everyone iOS update is switching a set of bugs for another.It could always be worse.I have been with T-Mobile since 2004. My first phone was the Sidekick II. The first software update I can remember was on the Sidekick LX (2007) to record video.
Actually that was my point. That we really won't know much and it will come when it comes. I also kinda agree, maybe there are delays because they're so busy getting back to answering the same questions.I'm probably just as anxious as the next person, but when it comes, it comes.BTW: 1 year ago today I upgraded to Android Oreo on my Note8
