***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team

My wife did the latest update yesterday which seems to be the January security update and now it appears she cannot get the phone to charge on the wireless charging stand. Has anyone else seen this problem?

The first thing that tech support told me was to clear the cache partition on the

phone after I got an update.Volume up-Power-Home do this when you go to start

up the phone. Once it goes to recovery mode use the volume down button to

highlight clear cache partition.The press the power button then volume down to say yes.

When it is done just reboot the phone. I was told that doing this helps with a lot of

different problems with the battery. It does not do anything to your settings.

Thank you Kathy but I think it turns out I jumped the gun. I tried charging my new Galaxy S8 on the charger with the same result. I have another fast charge wireless charger that I use next to my bed as an alarm clock and night clock and have had no problems so far. When I put my wife's S7 on that charger, it reacted normally and began charging as it should. Therefore it appears to be a faulty charging stand. Since it is well out of warranty I'll have to purchase another one. However thank you again for your help.
