    Seems to have changed the color of the “charging battery” icon at the top of the phone. Internet very slow and I have plenty of data left.

  • Sarah Watson

    Help, please! Kit Kat caused my email to stop synching. Not sure what to do.

    • ronyd

      my email is also not working with the update. I now have to use that lame vetizon app to access my email.

  • LArry Chenkin

    Email not zworking with update

  • Joel N

    Kit Kat is not an improvement in the Verizon world

    Almost all formerly-saved passwords are lost. Doesn’t save them when re-entered, either.
    Battery goes flat faster
    email synch to non-google sources is even worse

    Probably has taken away ability of non-google apps to access the SD card directly.

    consider yourself warned.
