Since the system update I have to unlock my phone to see if I have a new text or email..the green light flashes, but I don't always know which it is I have. I used to have a little envelope appear when I'm turn the screen on and it still was locked. Now, nothing telling me about a new text. Also, I cannot seem to change from having the lock screen secured with a pattern to the simple swipe. Any suggestions how to change these things, if I even can anymore.

Yes. Backup your files or photos/music etc...go to your backup and reset option in settings, uncheck restore apps and data. The play store will know what you previously installed, so no worries. Not restoring app data can help prevent the errors that come with OS versions being installed on top of previous versions. FDR with 100% charge. And re-set up the phone and you can install apps via the play store app in batch by long pressing one app, then tapping all the other apps you want to install. Its also a good time to clean out apps you dont need.
I don't get it: My light flashes letting me know I have a message and I hear the sound. I knock-on the screen and it comes on. I have icons in the notification bar and also have "cards" on the lockscreen with snippets of what the message is or if an email, it tells me I have x# new emails, voicemails, missed calls, weather, whatever.
I used to before the update and my boyfriend has the same phone except he has the simple swipe to unlock his screen while I have the pattern to draw. I get the sound and flashing light but to know if it's an email or text I have to knock on unlock them are. Annoying
