Updated to 4.4 and now my Bluetooth 'studders' when listening to music and a phone call. Yes I have reset the phone and removed the battery.

I just updated my Note 3 to 4.4.2. Since then when I listen to music or make a call on my Bluetooth my music and calls 'studders' and has some type of 'drop-outs' during the music and calls. This was not the case prior to the update.

Yes, I have power down the phone. Yes, I have removed the battery and restarted the phone. My Bluetooth headset is an LG 730. I tried listening to music on my other Bluetooth devices and they also 'studders' and has drop-outs during calls and music. I connected with a wired headset and the 'studdering' disappeared.

Is there a way to revert back to the previous 4.3 version of Android. I use my phone extensively for business and drive with it. The law for my state requires 'hands free' usage of my phone.

lbarron1,

We want to make sure you can abide by the law at all times and use your hands free headset. Have you tried a factory reset on your device since the software update? http://vz.to/1m1gmBw

No, you can't revert to the previous OS version of the device.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Unfortunately, I was forced to do a factory Reset. This wiped the device to a new state.

Afterwards all Blue-tooth, wi-fi and calls operated fine.

I would advise that you notify your customers that they would most likely have to do a Factory Reset once they update their device.

All contacts, pictures, data and applications were either lost or had to be reinstalled.
