The software update of March 2018 has drastically diminished the basic functionality of my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge😠
I can no longer send SMS😠
I can still receive SMS from others, but I can no longer send replies, nor send any newly composed SMS initiated by me.
When it first started yesterday, I did a balance enquiry to make sure that my mobile credit (Cyta soeasy Prepaid) hadn't somehow spontaneously drained to 0Â€.
That's when I discovered that this bloody software update also doesn't allow me to check my balance!
Cyta soeasy balance enquiry code is *110#
Normally this briefly shows "USSD code running..." and not even 2 seconds later, the remaining balance is displayed (how much air time HH:MM:SS, number of SMS, number of GB of data, as well as how many Â€Â€ I have left on the account.
...But as of stupid 29 March 2018: *110# only gives the "MMI complete" Error.
I have already spent half a day of trying each and every fix for these problems, but to no avail.
I hated the stupid Nougat update of 2017 after it unilaterally changed my important personalised settings on this same Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
The worst changes were to my keyboard layout and language settings:
Â• the 3 non-English languages I regularly type in were gone,
Â• autocorrect became (and remains!) hyperaggressive: it continues to change even common English words (the possessive pronoun "its" always gets autocorrected to the informal contraction of it+is➡ "it's" 😡). Yet when I make an actual typo (like typing "samw" instead of "same"), that onetime typo of mine will end up getting remembered as the intended spelling from then onwards!
Â• all of the saved special words (spellings of proper nouns, subject-specific jargon deemed too complex/alien sounding for Nougat's programmers) + my frequently used word combinations- had all disappeared from my messaging app's predictive text.
That stupid Nougat update made using my phone a stressful and time-consuming ordeal. I naïvely treated myself to this S7 Edge believing that its features would make communicating easier, NOT HARDER😠
Updated my Galaxy S7 Duos (Dual sim variant SM-G930FD) The phone does not Fast Charge anymore, doesn't matter if wirelessly or via cable. Tried many different OEM samsung cables and Fast Charger adapters, even serviced my phone and replaced my charging port. Still no use, did a Factory reset, no use. This is stressing me out, I have to literally wait 8+ hours to charge this phone, never had a problem with this phone in two years until this update. Its insane.

Plus my bank app won't work now but will work on other phones and devices....happened right after upgrade. I want to undo this!!!!!
after updating my phone last night..took a game(mobile legends) this morning, phone got lag or hang-up after few minutes screen-turned off (auto) now the phone is not waking up and no-response even the power/volume button... phone is charging tho, cant use it now, still under observation...hoping it will restart or reboot by itself...samsung sucks!!!!
New S7 update is a pain- continue to receive message notification for messages I have sent!! The messages I receive I have to select them so they can upload before they can be read.
Since the latest update (Mar-2018), contacts stored in the phone memory are no longer synchronised with bluetooth to my car's handsfree kit (BMW with factory installed handsfree) and names are no longer shown on the car's display.
Only the few contacts (mainly emergency numbers) stored on the SIM card get synchronised to the car.
This is extremely annoying as I have several hundreds of contacts on my phone.
I tried to unpair and pair the phone again, but couldn't find any fix so far.
horrible problems since update 3/2018. every single problem already posted. how to undo this update. please. no battery life, texts repeating after already sent, the black screen when calling, like wtfh.
did the update and now I'll have text messages but no alert or notification even though notification is turned on. anyone else have this issue? anyone know how to solve it?
Updated my s7 edge few days ago. Now the battery is down to 20% by lunchtime where as before the update it would still be on 70% when I got home after work at 6. Anyone else have a drastic battery drain. Tried the battery saving mode but that doesn't work.
Since this latest update my Gmail will say I have 125 msgs.when I have 1 msg. Random numbers but never the correct amount. Using my phone to call people, the screen turns black after dialing number. You can't use back arrow in bottom right corner as nothing comes up. Does anyone know how to remove this latest update that is full of bugs?
The screen is hypersensitive. I tap to like a picture and the screen scrolls to the side. I tap a letter once and there are 3 of the same letter. This is becoming increasingly annoying.
also having problems with the new update.. I will not receive text and when I do alot will come in at once.
I too am having texting issues, picture issues and font/bubble issues since an update
Did the latest update a couple of hours ago, phone became flaky then it looks like its bricked itself.
I hate the new update. Just downloaded last night and my messaging is all messed up. If I just get 1 text I have a notification on app button for 3 or i had 13 texts and still had a notification for 3 until I opened messages and saw how many I really had. Then this morning showed no messages until I opened up the app and then 7 popped up. I hate how message pops up on top of screen and the new formats.
The latest update pretty sucks it's drainin my batt so fast. Now, the display is whitish. Do sumthin bout it samsung.

Does anyone know what this little bot dot next to some contacts in messenger and contact app mean? There are different types too. Some are near their contact circle, some are off to the lower right corner not touching the co intact circle, and others don't have a blue dot at all. Figured maybe this was a fb thing, but it didn't match up to that either. Hating this update and now highly confused.
