I would love to know what applications Verizon thinks would interfere with a phone's ability to run bluetooth correctly. Twitter? Words with Friends?  This heavy handed approach, asking users to reset their brand new phones to factory defaults, is unacceptable, especially when you have hundreds or thousands of users experiencing the same issue.  Besides, why would you ask a user to reset their phone to factory defaults, losing all their data and apps instead of just booting into safe mode which would do the same thing minus the data loss (I've tried this as well so it's clearly not any errant apps).  The only difference would be that the hard reset brings me back to 4.2...at least temporarily until the phone updates again. So it seems to me that Verizon knows there are issues with the 4.3 update and rather than just admit it and fix it they are asking users to jump through hoops to confirm something they already know.

I have a 2011 Subaru Impreza and I did check the Subaru website and they state the S4 will connect to their system.  In my initial comment you'll see I mention that my Thunderbolt connected to the car without issue.  I don't have any other bluetooth accessories to pair it to to test.  I see that others are having bluetooth issues as well in this forum and other forums....is it related to the recent 4.3 update?  Bluetooth should work seamlessly out of the box.  I almost threw the phone out the window today when it wouldn't connect so I could listen to music.  The last thing I should be doing while driving is having to tap my phone 15 times for it to make a simple connection.  Is a patch coming or can I downgrade to 4.2?

I've had my S4 for 5 days and I have to say I am incredibly disappointed with the Bluetooth thus far.  I'm not sure if it's related to the update to 4.3 since that happened on day 2 and I hadn't had enough time to use it to see if there was a difference but here's my issue: Bluetooth will not automatically connect to the car. I get in the car, turn BT on in the phone, up pops the connection showing paired devices, it shows my car, it shows that it's paired, it says it connects but the car says there are no devices.  Sometimes if I tap it 3-5 times it will finally actually connect, but usually I have to go into the paired device settings and re-check call audio and media audio options.  This also takes multiple taps before it will show checkmarks in the boxes.  Why do I have to do this every time?  Why can't the settings be saved like a normal device?    I even tried deleting it from the car and re-pairing to no avail.  I had my Thunderbolt for two years and never had a problem. I would get into the car, turn on bluetooth, it would instantly connect (without me having to do anything) and I was good to go. Second problem is, when I do finally connect to the car and play music stored on the device, the audio drops in and out repeatedly.  I have yet to get thru a song in it's entirety.  When I stream Slacker however, the audio doesn't seem to drop in and out. Bluetooth isn't new technology.  I'm just shocked that this problem exists on a brand new phone.  The fact that I gave up my unlimited data plan for this phone is really starting to bum me out.  I thought I was upgrading from my Thunderbolt, not downgrading. Contemplating returning it.
