My Verizon Galaxy Note 3 just got a weird update. It did sort of a half baked reset. All of my stock settings were reset. It also tried to update every single app on my phone without any permission given at all. Apps that couldn't be found in the Market are greyed out and tapping them points me to the Market. Some of these apps were side loaded, some came from bundles, and some were in the market but didn't update and will not work (AMEX app, for example). When I tap these grayed out placeholders I'm directed to the Market. Ironically I noticed no loss of storage space, so it didn't really uninstall anything.  It's just keeping me from my apps until I update them in the Market which I think is BULL. WTF?  I've noticed one single improvement which is really just a fix for something they broke in a previous update. Now when I have the shade pulled down I can swipe up anywhere on the screen to roll it back up which was the way it functioned before some other update required you to actually tap on the shade itself to roll it back up.

Updates are meant to improve your device rahn. I regret to learn of the difficulites you are experiencing. When did your phone update? Can you verify what software verision is now displaying on your phone? Does your device perform this way and apps are grayed out everywhere you go with the phone?


Thank You,
