Problems with note 3
Tuesday 08th of October 2013
Has anyone noticed that the Galaxy Note 3 appears to have consistently lower signal strength then a galaxy note 2 . I've tested both side by side driving down the road and it is apparent to the point that I will drop calls on the Note 3 in areas that never dropped calls on the Galaxy Note 2 Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using AC Forums mobile app
Samsung Galaxy - Cracked Screen Defect, not dropped, Note 3 & Note 2, S4 & S3
Monday 04th of November 2013
On October 19, 2013, I purchased a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for $349.99 plus taxes of $21.00 at Best Buy store (1087) in York, PA. At a quick glance it seemed like there was nothing wrong with it. The next day I noticed a slight refracting thin line of glare on the screen while web browsing and watching Youtube. I thought it was maybe a finger prints or something. Upon further inspection of the the phone on that day, I noticed it was a small scratch, nick, or something under the screen of the phone. It was located approximately one inch from the top left hand side of the phone toward the middle of the screen. I tried calling Bust Buy, but it was after regular business hours. With further normal use of the phone (charging, texting, phone calls, using GPS, and web browsing) I realized it was getting bigger. It began spread from top of the screen to the bottom of the screen. Remind you I have just gotten the phone. I did not drop it, apply any pressure to the screen or handle it wrong in any way. I called the Best Buy store again on during normal business hours where I purchased the phon
Battery Issue with the Note 3
Monday 18th of November 2013
Hi guys. A month a go i bought a UK (Vodafone) Note 3 and i must say i love the phone. The first couple of weeks the Note started crashing every time i was about start an app or type something, so it went back to vodafone and they replaced it with a new one. So far after reading reviews more about the Note 3, I hear people are claiming they are getting a day and half of battery life at least on a single charge ( heavy use). But mines doesn't last a day if i watch a few youtube videos, Facebook and whatsapp. This afternoon i finished charging my phone at 2pm then i opened the Facebook app for no more than 2min then the battery dropped 2% from a 100. So now its 11.50pm and i've got 45% battery life left and all i've been doing is going on Facebook for 10mins made 3 phone calls (less than 2mins) Watched two 15secs video clip and sent 6 messages. Doesn't sound right on the Noe 3 right? I read a post about a guy who watched a 2hour video on full brightness and only took 10% of battery life. So what should i do guys? my Gps Bluetooth are all off and the brightness is set to auto.
Dropped calls and data connectivity (sprint)
Friday 29th of November 2013
I'm planning on getting a new note 3 and when reading around on the device I see that a lot of people been experiencing dropped calls and poor connectivity to the internet. I also noticed there was an update to correct the dropped call issue but no one ever commented on weather it improved. Everything looks great on the device but I would hate to not be able to make quality calls and have poor internet and wifi connections. Any input would be great. Btw I have sprint as a carrier, thanks
Galaxy Note 3 - Dropping service signal
Monday 02nd of December 2013
I took ownership of my Note 3 on Friday. A lovely phone, even better if I could make calls from it and text! All ok on Friday. Then Saturday it dropped signal and since haven't been able to get signal since. The phone seems to be recieving data streaming ok, Like emails etc. Though I can't get phone signal. Can't make/recieve calls nor text. Its getting very annoying. I visited the vodaphone store today. They replaced the SIM card. I waited an hour until turned it on and the same problem appeared again. I managed to get signal for first 20 seconds then it shut off. This is the same everytime. I get about 1 min of service and send a text then it completely drops the signal saying no service. Has anyone else had this issue with there Note 3. I have raised this with Vodaphone UK, though they reckon it's the network. I think a faulty phone.
Dropped Calls on Note 3

Just got my GN3 a few weeks ago and I've had issues on Sprint with dropped calls. Anyone else having issues? I know it may be based on area, but I would like to eliminate any other possibilities.
Verizon Galaxy Note 3 - RF Signal meter meaning
Monday 13th of January 2014
What do the vertical bars actually represent? I am sitting 6 ft away from my Wi-Fi router, but only have 2 bars. I only have 2-3 bars when I turn on 4g, but everything works ok when I use internet and I have never had dropped calls. from my "Note 3" on Tapatalk
Verizon KitKat update causing frequent dropped calls?
Thursday 22nd of May 2014
I've had my Note 3 on Verizon since last fall on release. One of the MAIN reasons I switched to Verizon from AT&T years ago was voice call quality. I am on conference calls or with clients on the phone a good 5+ hours per day. With AT&T, I'd drop a call 5-6 times while out driving around. They have well known issues with handling tower transfers of calls. Verizon...never a dropped call. I'm not exaggerating...unless I absolutely had ZERO mobile network connectivity, Verizon works, even when roaming, for voice calls. Enter KitKat. In general, everything is working fine. But I now have degraded signal in my home market (haven't traveled since the update so no ideas if this is limited to home market or not). I'm repeatedly unable to make/receive calls in many areas where I only have 2 bars, whereas before that wouldn't have been an issue. But even more maddening is being on a call and having it drop with the "Call Failed" banner across the page. Happened 8 times this morning in a span of highway I travel every day and run conference calls religiously while driving. Nev
VZW Note 3 no network available?
Wednesday 27th of August 2014
Like others since the last VZW update my Note 3 has poor service, i get dropped calls, no network available etcCalling VZW gets you know where it's always the same answer reboot your device remove sim.I've had my Note 3 since release day and it used to work great. It is stock and not rooted. I used to always root my phones but didn't see a need to root the note 3 until now.Has anyone having the same issues tried going back to a older modem/radio? I think you have to go back to the older version on android as well to use the older radios, i can not remember how it worked.I'm on NC4 and want to root and go back to MJE.Do the roms include the modem/radio?There is a 4.3 rom i want to go to and it says it's based off VRUBMJE. So would i need to flash the rom and then the radio?Thanks for your help!
