I'll second this... the service used makes much more of a difference than the device.I didn't see which network you would be on... this makes a huge difference. Don't get the S4 if you plan to be on sprint. If you have any symbols in your wife's name, your text messaging wont work. I've had the s4 for 2 months, sprint and Samsung still don't acknowledge the problem. I've found the solution on an android forum. An amateur developer went into his system and found the problem. I have sent the whole thread multiple times to sprint and Samsung. and both of them still keep blaming each other.
I've already verified that my self that if keep your wifi off, or change the name to just letters only, it works. This is only a sprint/Samsung problem.
Other than that... it is a great phone with the best camera I've ever seen on a phone.
I'm asking as a soon to be owner of the same phone...Got my S4 today. Did not even power it up. Threw on a recovery, rooted it and put a debloated rom with none of the annoying carrier crap.:evil:
It depends on your carrier/version of your phone. Xda-developer forums is a great resource to use. Just make sure you are using the correct version of your phone (ie: verizon S4). And make sure you follow instructions.I'm asking as a soon to be owner of the same phone...
Can you explain a bit more on what you did, and how, or direct me to where you found out how to do it?
I haven't really done anything with phones, since messing around with the OS on my BB Bold 9000, and that was years ago.
