Hi,

I updated the Samsung firmware/software (or whatever it's called) today from 4.1.2 to 4.2.2 Kernel 3.0.31-2212686.

I have noticed a couple of niggling little differences in the operation of my phone and am wondering how to change these back to the way they were BEFORE I updated.

1) When typing my PIN code on the lock screen, the phone vibrates. It never used to. How do I change it back?

2) When I receive a text message, I now get a preview of the message on my lock screen. I never used to get those either. How do I change it back?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

I've been playing and playing and playing with the settings. I can't find the ones that enable me to do this. Help! (Please? Someone?)

Go to Settings and disable Vibrate on touch.
To remove previewing message, go to settings from inbox and by the end you can uncheck preview messages,

Hi DMJoh, and thanks for your input.

I did finally find the setting to undo the preview messages, so ... YES!! Thanks for that! Much appreciated.

Unfortunately, I'm not finding the Vibrate on Touch setting. The update seems to have changed about all my settings and put them into four categories: Connections, My Device, Accounts, ...More, with subcategories under each main category.

I cannot find the Vibrate on Touch setting anywhere. I even looked under My Device/Lock Screen as I thought the settings would be there what with all the vibrating happening on the lock screen, but it is not there, either.

Any ideas? Thanks

Actually, what you mentioned is your phone vibrates when you touch keypad for entering PIN code to unlock right, actually this is not happenong with me.i tried it in an older 4.2.2, if u are on the latest B1 update, i am not sure how it works, i reverted back from B1 as its almost stuck all the time in my phone, if its okay with you try a factory reset, but am not sure this will solve your problem.
