    I bought a GSM samsung duos GT – S7562 android version 4.0.4 nearly a month ago and suddenly it stopped recognizing the second sim card. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    For the time being, this update you have to adjust with, because you cant never downgrade an updated ROM ‘officially’ or you can do the following:

    1. It is to flash your phone with older 4.1.2 JB and flash 4.2.2 JB over it, because the latest update have greater changes in internal partitions (BOOT,CSC,KERNEL,CACHE,DALVIK,PIT..anyone of them or whole, anyway dont bother). SO flashing back any older 4.2.2 alone cant save your phone. Flash an older version of 4.2.2 only, may be the K3 update

    Mail me at if you are expressing Hanging and crashing problems or even slowing down of the mobile problems in your Samsung Galaxy Grand Mobile after upgradation from Android 4.1.2 to Android 4.2.2. I have resolved these problems and can help u too. Just mail me with the description of the problems you are experiencing.

    The problems you are experiencing is because of the major BUG introduced as a result of the UPDATE…But the solution is EASY and at a touch of a button in the settings. You do not have to download any app or anything.

        You cant do anything because its the problem of the flop update, you can go back to older firmwares, but you need a manual flash!

    Thanks Samsung for fixing the issues and bugs in 4.2.2
    They released a new update just a few days before and now it seems everything fine. No hanging after the latest stability update. Battery backup is fine. Charging time is reduced. Good performance. Now I am enjoying the new jellybean 4.2.2 after a few days regretting about updating my device.


      (November 6, 2013 - 12:42 pm)

      u r right..I was panic when i had given my grand for repair in samsung customer care because i have read lots of bad reviews about grand duos update. But after update Now My phone is working very nice. that stability update did all the best for my phone..Battery backup is excellent..and now it is giving very fast performance too..

    Hi, 4.2.2 update has taken away many features from my phone. I suggest not to upgrade if you have older version please.
    1. S Planner doesn’t shows only event, time and location – message body doesn’t open.
    2. Multi window option is not working.
    3. Conferencing is not working.
    4. Attachments are not seen.


      (October 28, 2013 - 1:23 pm)

      Its true. Many options are not there after updating.
      1. Call duration
      2. Call conference
      3. Multi window.
      Anyone knows how to revert to 4.1.2 ? pls share ?


        (October 29, 2013 - 9:24 am)

        Just simply update manually by using Odin flash and download the 945 mb android 4.2.2 update file. Then flash using the odin mode.It worked for me and all features work as it should.


        (November 19, 2013 - 11:16 pm)

    Recently updated my Grand duos to 4.2.2. First I new was a notification on the phone.
    Total download was 538mb.
    No overheating problems but some apps stopped working namely Viber, Tango and google +.
    Solved Viber and Tango by uninstalling then reinstalling them.
    Google + preinstalled so cannot do it.
    Still getting occasional; notification that Google+ has stopped working.
    Not good for Samsung


      (October 23, 2013 - 9:33 pm)

      Go to play store and tinker wid google + from there…it will solve the issue!


    (October 21, 2013 - 6:22 pm)

    I am also facing the issues mentioned by others after the upgrade…is there a way to get the older android version back on my phone

      Dawn Mathews John

      (October 28, 2013 - 7:46 pm)

      Hope you can go to a customer service centre, n get back the old, but thats not a guaranteed option..
      Or Flash with Odin, but its risky and faults may void ur warranty

        Dawn Mathews John

        (October 28, 2013 - 7:48 pm)

        This can be solved by a hard reset, because this is not that common problem.
        If u had tried reinstalling Whatsapp, try a hard reset

          ??? ???? ?????

          (October 29, 2013 - 7:48 pm)

          What do u mean by hard reset

            Dawn Mathews John

            (October 30, 2013 - 7:40 am)

            Hard reset in the sense is a factory reset.

            You can do this, after switching off the cell.

            Press and hold the volume up key+Home key+Power button and switch on your cell…keep in mind dat y r holding these three keys.

            Upon switching on u will get a menu from which u cqn select erase all data. This will roll back ur cell to factory condition.

            Ifu feel the process is bit hard..
            Just go for Backup and reset in settings menu and reset ur phone.

            Beware to take backup of all data in ur phone memory.

    Here is the way to get back your HIDDEN ITEMS after the gallery is giving problem after the 4.2.2 upgrade. I FIGURED OUT..
    First Download “AndroZip” APP(from playstore).Open this App and go through your device storage and you will find a FOLDER named “.hide”. This FOLDER contains all that HIDDEN ITEMS.From there just COPY or MOVE the HIDDEN ITEMS to a NEW FOLDER or some OTHER FOLDER, there are options, and CLOSE the APP.Now open your My Files, open ALL FILES and open DEVICE STORAGE and you will get it there, IN THE FOLDER you have moved the HIDDEN ITEMS or in the NEW FOLDER you created and in which you have copied or moved the HIDDEN ITEMS if you have created a NEW FOLDER.

    JB 4.2.2 has pretty good look… but i shld say that it was created only for look and options.. Not for Speed, Accuracy and Performance.. Apps are opening but dilouge box come and asks “U want wait or Close”. it asks everytime… Some time i think that throw out to the streets.. irritating to me.. previous version is very very good….

    After updating the software, my gallery is not working properly. The hidden files do not open up. “Unfortunately the gallery has stopped working” this message flashes om the screen. What do I do to get my hidden images back?
    Also the phone working has become very slow. Some car mode automatically gets enabled anytime on my phone.
    The hand touch motions of double tapping and shaking phone to scan for bluetooth devices are also not available.
    The unlock screen patten vibrates badly. :/
    The phone anytime starts showing 100% battery even when it’s not fully charged and then suddenly the phone is switched off with 0% battery.
    phone is hanging up badly while playing games..on whatsapp.
    Loved my phone before but now terribly disappointed with the latest update. Wish I had not updated. 🙁

    After the upgrade the stock dialer does not give an option to choose other software like viber, Skype to call. This was not the case earlier.
    The interesting thing is that for messaging, I do get the options, but not for calls.

    After upgrading Samsung galaxy grand to 4.2.2

    (1) Option for hold,mute and putting another call on conference (3 way calling) are gone. These are the important and necessary features,how come they miss them?

    (2)Cannot locate hidden files in the gallery app. Where did it go? Removed or completely hidden during upgradation?

    (3) Severe problems with battery.It drains out very quickly even in standby.

    (4) Favorite gone from Contact menu.

    is there any Samsung’s or Android’s official forum/community where we can acknowledge them about this error? or may be know when they can give us these features back?

      (October 3, 2013 - 10:08 am)

      For Slow issue: Take backup of your data through Kies and then do a factory reset and then restore your data back. Slow issue and battery drain issue would be resolved. At least it worked for me.
      For Vibration issue: Download spare parts+ application from Playstore. In that you will find Haptic Feedback option which is already selected. Just remove the selection from Haptic Feedback and your vibration issue would be resolved.

    Am using Galaxy grand , Unfortunatly removde default application gallery , how to restore default application gallery

    Sanjay Varshaney

    (September 29, 2013 - 2:06 am)

    My galaxy grand showing incorrect battery status. Battery shows charging even after unplugging charger. Very soon it comes 100% in ghostly manner without any connection and then sticks to same status. If uncharged going with this status then all of sudden phone becomes dead due to battery depletion to 0% without any warning. Not sure if this is because of version upgrade to 4.2.2. This was going well in India but noticed this ghostly behaviour the day I landed in US. Then same day I upgraded the version and since then this issue is prominent. Almost daily I need to restart the phone to have correct status of battery. Not sure if this is a existing bug not handling power supply difference correctly or the bug introduced by version upgrade to 4.2.2. Can any one suggest the solution?


    (September 28, 2013 - 2:22 pm)

    After upgrading to 4.2.2 my phone become very slow..battery will consume more and the main problem is when i open gallery or camera it will take 5 to 10 sec for that…
    If der is any option to downgrade to 4.1.2 original version.


      (September 30, 2013 - 1:29 am)

    After upgrading to 4.2.2 my phone sucks .. seriously I use to love all the apps n features of 4.1.. is there any way around I can revert it to 4.1

      Dawn Mathews John

      (September 30, 2013 - 5:05 pm)

      Answer is NO if you don’t wanna lose your warranty. 4.2.2 does not have much improvement, but that’s a stock android through Samsung.

    How can i disable the vibration of pattern sreen lock?


      (September 28, 2013 - 2:54 pm)

      Download applicaion called “Spare parts +” from the play store. once the application is installed Uncheck the option “Haptic Feedback”. the pattern won’t vibrate then.

    (September 26, 2013 - 7:03 pm)

    I have just upgraded to the 4.2.2 last night(Samsung Grand Duos). Post which, I have no option to Add call/Mute/Hold-Unhold/BT Headset options when in an active call. Also, am not able to set a caller ring tone for any specific contact. Neither can I set that as a favorite. When sending a text there is no option to send a smiley too, except that the smiley will come up when typed manually. Battery backup has seen no changes nor has any apps crashed(touch wood!!). Performance seems to have had no changes as well. Its good performance wise, except that its missing on so many features..

    Any solution for the above mentioned issues?

    The phone is facing a lot of issues since my upgrade to Android 4.2.
    The phone hangs up every now and then. Applications crashes very often.
    Also facing performance issues.
    I have to remove the battery often to bring out phone from hung state.

    Unable to pick up call or dial no. many times. Battery backup has considerably reduced. Even USB connection to PC gives a lot of problem.
    Please suggest what should be done to resolve or fix the issue or is there a way around.

    P.S. : I am keeping almost 50% of internal memory free to make it work fine that also is not working.

    Nilesh Sharma

    (September 25, 2013 - 10:55 pm)

    From those experiencing hangs and slow working after the update. I did a hard reset to my grand after the update was installed. Do this for your phone’s and I can assure it you wont face such problem again. Worked for me and all those people. I suggested by far

    P. S kinda miss the multi Window option after the update though


      (September 29, 2013 - 8:06 pm)

      u can still use the multiwindow wen in standard mode/ as well as with the crashing apps jus uninstall the said apps and reinstall

    Dear Sir /mam

    i have recently purchased Samsung grand dues i9082 and am constantly facing problem with incoming and outgoing Voice calls. As instructed by the dealer i have gone through the servicing of my phone 1 time already and checked with my sim service provider about service but it seems it is a problem with my phone only as i cant hear the voice of person on the other end of phone and similarly he also doesnt gets my voice.

    It has been a real struggle that after spending 20000 rs i am not happy with the dealer and service of this phone. So please guide me what to be done.

The phone works fast normally, but if it is connected to Wi-Fi or Mobile Data is ON, it hangs up pathetically. I flashed my phone in Samsung Service Centre with a new 4.2.2, but still it was hanging….so I did factory reset as u suggested. Still this hanging over Wi-Fi or Mobile data happens. Any help?

        Thanks Shiva! that did it.
        Earlier when we touched a message it would open in a new screen with only the message. There we could have options to copy part of text, dial a number directly etc. This functionality seems to have come in the call out directly now. But does the old separate screen functionality continue to exist?

    (September 17, 2013 - 11:03 am)

    I have so many issues since the update.
    1. My battery doesn’t get charged to 100% and the recharging is extremely slow.
    2. Battery drains out to almost 30%-40% within 2 hrs even without making a single call or using any other apps on the phone
    3. The phone freezes so often.
    Now, I want to restore my phone to the previous version 4.1.2
    Is there someone who could help me do this? Should I go to Samsung service centre or can I manually do it at home?


      (September 17, 2013 - 3:43 pm)

      Relax dude…I had the same problem .Just take all data backups and then do a factory reset.It should resolve your issue. I did it and till now no issues

            (September 30, 2013 - 5:41 pm)

            Actually the update does not raise the problem like this.
            Check whether you have enabled Motions And Gestures in Settings


    (September 16, 2013 - 10:14 pm)

    Two big problems I am facing after the update.. if anyone has solutions, will be really thankful:
    1. Unable to get gtalk back.. just hate hangout.. have been off IM ever since the update happened.. 🙁
    2. Suddenly, the font size of my SMS message have blown up to some 100 times bigger font and can’t even read a word in a line

      Nanda Kishore

      (September 17, 2013 - 5:24 pm)

      For gtalk you can just go to settings and it’ll show you to uninstall updates so gtalk will be back

      Change screen mode to standard


    (September 16, 2013 - 5:27 pm)

    Android 4.2.2 is the worst update for Grand. Samsung should concentrate more on their R&D b4 releasing tht to the general public.
    Following probs:
    Hangs frequently.
    Dead slow.
    To pen Gallery, contacts, camera it takes 1 to 2 min.
    Restarts several times in a day.
    Drains battery very quickly…
    Real shame on Samsung.

    Vivek Chandra

    (September 15, 2013 - 1:58 am)

    as such i dont have any issue android 4,2 works good on my grand….but there is a problem in it’s performance some time it works fairly smooth n faster then android 4.1 but sometimes it lags and gets hang and trust me you won’t like to happen with your set! According to me it’s a beta version n there’ll be an update for it’s performance,until then we have to use as it is!!
    the best feature i liked in it that i can move my games on sd card ,i don’t have to root it but the application file remains in phone memory but it’s installed components(files) are shifted to sd card;results in saving a whole lot of space.
    but i’m eagerly waiting for android’s latest version KIT-KAT.

          (September 15, 2013 - 2:45 am)

          try re installing it…actually at the time of installation there might be some notification or like calls were coming which had disturbed the update process…try it in night or remove sim cards or put it on flight mode(less safer for this as per me)….problems will be resolved…and if not then take it customer care…and do remember to take back up of contacts, memos, call logs, imp application before updating…this can be done by back up and reset…while updating make sure that ur device is fully charged..or connect it with a chargr..hope will help..


            (September 16, 2013 - 10:51 am)

            Hi Atul,

            Once upgraded to 4.2.2, how to re-install it?
            Thanks so much for your help.

            Gaurav Saraswat

            (September 16, 2013 - 10:10 pm)

            Hi Pradeep, I think for re-installing, you must backup your data first then do the factory reset of the phone. After doing this your phone will be just like the fresh mobile without any updates. Then you can update the software again. Hope that resolves your query.


    (September 14, 2013 - 12:32 pm)

    Soumik Bhadra

    (September 13, 2013 - 10:14 pm)

    After the update to 4.2.2 it works very smooth. I have got most of the features of gs4 like lock screen widgets, light effect on lock screen, new settings menu , even smart stay also, transparent status bar, etc, etc.. I am quite impressed what samsung done.and i think the battery backup is also increased a little…:)


    (September 13, 2013 - 9:30 pm)

    After the update I am not able to download apps from play store . It shows some error . Please give me solution .


      (September 14, 2013 - 6:56 am)

      Try uninstalling any update you did to the Play store. I found issues on 4.2.2 where the video was all pixelated on youtube app. I uninstalled the update and it worked fine. I hope it helps.


    (September 13, 2013 - 9:07 pm)

    Dont update from 4.1. Wifi hotspot, contacts, phone log, favorites, all stop responding. Phone has to be restarted even to receive calls. This update 4.2.2 as well as the supplementary update (of about 7 MB) is a really bad one. In messages, removing the delete button from top right is really inconvenient, and i wonder who has been designing the user interface. Sucks, sucks, sucks,,, go ahead suckers…

      Atul Agarwal

      (September 15, 2013 - 3:06 am)

      Go to Settings-> “More networks” in network connection->tethering and portable hotspot->select portable wifi hotspot->then configure it.


      try it with password “famu9070”

      hope will work..

      do reply..

    i tried updating ota bt tha update failed due to network failure n ws unable 2 update later so got it updated from samsung care on tuesday. As of now this update is awesome and ma loving the battery backup that has increased by nearly150%. But there are a few gitches for which ma sure samsung would do something. Rest evrythn is just awsm n the ui is also cool.

    (September 13, 2013 - 6:27 pm)

    Update works fine. After the 488 MB update ,there’s another 8 MB update for stability.New features : Setting panel ,Transparent status bar for TouchWiz users only , Revamped Apps , Daydream , Categorized Setting menu , Driving Mode etc; . Bad news : No Lock screen widgets . Lock screen space is much small ( Which sucks , Samsung guys should work on this ) . And yeah there are little tweaks

    Akshay Gangwar

    (September 13, 2013 - 6:25 pm)

    Yes, the interface is beautiful and everything. (They also brought back the screenshot editing option that had disappeared after a particular update in 4.1.2) but it hangs a lot, then restarts. It’s annoying. I update it two days back. It comes with a nice interface but not worth it because of the crashes. Gallery loads WAY TOO SLOW!

    (September 13, 2013 - 2:08 pm)

    Updated to 4.2.2 successfully.. no issues found. The update has really improved Grand. But sad story is no 4.3 official update coming for Grand as per some re-known websites. (no official update).


      (September 13, 2013 - 2:23 pm)

      Multi window not working any more.. seems to be bug.


        (September 13, 2013 - 3:59 pm)

    Does Any 1 Noticed that we can move some apps to external memory card ?? + feature added n saved space to perform better 🙂


      (September 14, 2013 - 7:00 am)

      Yes, thats a very good news. I hope all the external apps can be moved to SD card. Then it means we can install as many games as required. One more question, how to play real racing 3 on this phone without rooting the phone and other circus. In Play store it says the device is not compatible and no option to download. very disappointed :(, Same with Asphalt 8 :'(


    (September 13, 2013 - 11:52 am)

    its damn slow after installing 4.2.2…please have fix and improve performance


      (September 13, 2013 - 4:01 pm)

      Did you install the second update as well (around 7 MB) – that fixed issue for me with battery & sluggish performance.

        Akshay Gangwar

        (September 13, 2013 - 6:25 pm)

    (September 12, 2013 - 12:02 pm)

    The one handed operation is no longer available for the qwerty keyboard . Only the dial keypad has this option…. which is very annoying now.


    (September 12, 2013 - 11:54 am)

    Last night I updated to the latest, apart from all highs mentioned by the others and lows may be I was unique where the multiwindow option was disabled and an smartstay was included. Were there any settings to be changed to enable multiwindow.

    Dawn Mathews John

    (September 12, 2013 - 8:30 am)

    Well, I have seen everybody praising the interface and the look.. Ya, that’s a great addition to the handset.

    Apart from all this I don’t know how many of you guys have noticed that Samsung moved to stock android practices, especially the notification panel. before with 4.1.2, the handset was having a level of transitions and flow, even the size of the icons. Meanwhile they introduced customizable notification panel, but the icons are just stock android icons.

    Due to improvements in interface, the UI stops to respond. Even the internal memory available also decreased from available. The update is fine in terms of appeal, but performance wise it needs more improvement.

    (September 11, 2013 - 8:46 pm)

    Hi All,

    Ive updated my mine to 4.2.2, took over 30 Minutes to download and update.

    As One of the user Kailash mentioned the specs are same. Pros and Cons as below:


    *Buttery smooth experience, fell like using S3
    *Notification panel can be customized.
    *S3 like Music player and video player
    *fast and responsive
    *no lags so far, no problem opening any app.
    *Active sync UI is really awesome.


    *Talk will be replaced by hangouts (many will not like hangout)
    *screen lock when u have configured active sync is replaced by PIN obviously, and is too reflective, gives heptic (vibrating ) feedback, i did not find an option to disable this.


      (September 12, 2013 - 5:20 pm)

      cons: Multiwindow is not working


        (September 12, 2013 - 5:55 pm)

        Its working please check again


        (September 18, 2013 - 6:28 pm)

        Its working fine than before


    (September 11, 2013 - 8:41 pm)

    Hi My grand got a battery problem here. If fully charged, i can only use it for 2 hours. also some stuck , touch problems. But the interface is looking nice. What i need to do for this bugs?? Also smart eye is not working.

      Mahtab Masood

      (September 12, 2013 - 8:15 am)

      Smart eye never worked for me actually, even before this update… Only the eye icon used to appear at the top. I thought it might be because I wear specs and it is not able to detect my eyes. Reply here if you find out more about this issue.


      (September 12, 2013 - 2:45 pm)

      Battery is draining like hell after the update.

      Go ahead and update… There is no problem as I updated.. First download OS and it will restart and install it patiently… Then again go software update there would be 7mb file, which I feel it is for battery problem… Download that as well i have done it 20 hour ago no problem at all.

    Hello… I tried updating through kies,…. but it says that “Model GT-I9082 does not support initialising” Also the update firmware option is disabled. Please help


    (September 11, 2013 - 3:57 pm)

    i also updated my software version to 4.2.2, the update was good in some aspects and also having some disadvantages.My mobile was getting stuck frequently and yesterday i don’t know what happened the response from my mobile was very slow which i cant ever imagine that it became that slow, also i tried to restart my mobile but i couldn’t ,nearly after 10-15 mins i was able to restart my device but still the touch response was very poor. Also the device performance looks faster a bit after the update but performing any operation is taking very much time for me. Some of the updates were good but response and performance were reduced compared to previous version……..

      Shamsuddin Wantmurikar

      (September 11, 2013 - 5:55 pm)

      I too had same experience. Felt like performance lag after the update. Slows down or gets stuck in between the usage. Please look into this and have an update to fix the issue,.


      (September 12, 2013 - 5:54 pm)

      have done the 7mb update after that it will fix it


    (September 11, 2013 - 2:35 pm)

    When I tried updating, after downloading package insatallation got failed. So device was not updated. Anyone faced that issue ??

      AJ Jacob

      (September 11, 2013 - 4:35 pm)

      Same thing happened for me, I downloaded the 488.76mb update (using my wifi *Airtel GB limit* which i will never get back till next month bill reset….) Then it asked me to reboot my device so I touched the option and my phone restarted with the android having its chest open with some blue icon rotating while having an installation bar at the bottom which was moving pretty fast. When it reached 24% the Android Logo Fell down flat with its chest open and the blue icon near its chest became red, after that the device automatically restarted again and came to lock screen.
      Once unlocked I got a message saying “Failed to update firmware, please try again using PC software kies or visit service center.

      I even tried via Kies. It “downloaded” something very fast as soon as I clicked upgrade firmware (and clicking I agree etc). But, immediately after that another download started but this one was very slow, it was stuck at 0% for 15mins then moved to 1% and then to 2% after another 15mins, I gave up and cancelled.

      I called Samsung Customer care (They were utterly ridiculous). Those guys were not aware of the 4.2.2 update and kept countering me for a while saying there is no such update for my phone…. Then after 15mins of trying to convince those idiots that there is an update, they finally told me to go to a service center..

      I owned a HTC before a Galaxy Grand, the firmware updates on it was painless, I am regretting buying a Grand for the first time now (was happy with it till now)

      If anyone has any solution to my problem (which is doable at home and not some #$#@% service center) Please let me know.


        (September 12, 2013 - 8:49 am)

        Dude for updating via Kies, download depends on your internet speed… If internet speed is a bit slow, then it takes time to download and upgrade…. It was stuck at 0% for 15min.. but it will move on slowly, sometimes it takes time (may be 2 hours or 3 hours)… I suggest you keep your phone connectedvia Kies and leave it for some reasonable amount of time…. It might take some time… Try it.. (unless your pc internet doesnt have any download limit)

          AJ Jacob

          (September 12, 2013 - 4:47 pm)

          Hey thanks for replying. .. I tried updating via kies on 2mbps speed and it moved 1% every 15mins (left it for 3-4 hours) maximum it went was 20% which was unacceptable. AnywayI kept trying via ota again and again and again, it worked on the 4th time. I called samsung service center after that and they claime kies was failing and ota too cuz of samsung servers being strained.


    (September 11, 2013 - 2:21 pm)

    i too have updated with a latest version 4.2.2 but there is a problem of not connecting a conference call… pls do suggest the settings if any one knows about it.


      (September 12, 2013 - 8:51 am)

      My friend….. as I earlier commented for somebody…. Conference call option would get enabled only when you are connected to one call…. it wont get enabled while you are just dialling…. same is the case with Mute option…. Try it…

    (September 11, 2013 - 1:24 pm)

    I love the new update, the only thing that is bugging me is that the assistive light widget is not the same style as the active apps widget, is this just me or for everyone else too? On the Galaxy Mega both widgets are the same style.

      (September 12, 2013 - 7:24 pm)

      Assisitive light is there for 4.2.2,,,

    (September 11, 2013 - 11:10 am)

    Yesterday when i checked then it was showing the new update 4.2 but when today i am trying to update it through wifi & it shows that my phone is up to date but its still 4.1.2
    What should i do please help me.


      (September 11, 2013 - 3:40 pm)

      In this case, you will need to connect your pc and the update would be available through Kies…. Please to your pc with Kies… you will get the update there…

    Arun Dutt

    (September 11, 2013 - 10:46 am)

    I got yesterday OTA update and took one hour and finally said update is complete and ready to install. Then it rebooted and when the screen reappeared it said update to 4.2.2 failed. Go to kies for updating. When I retried to update manually it gives message that latest software version is available on my phone. I still have 4.1.2.Now will I get notification again for OTA?


      (September 11, 2013 - 2:35 pm)

      same happened for me.


      (September 11, 2013 - 3:41 pm)

      You can get the update in Kies…. connect to your pc through Kies, you will get the update there….

    it hangs and restarts again and again.battery drains faster than me to resolve this problem…


      (September 12, 2013 - 6:03 pm)

      have done the 7mb update after that,do it will be fixed n free up some space of internal memory


    (September 11, 2013 - 9:23 am)

    Sure is Faster than the previous version. Also lots of goodies .. certainly better on the touch part. The worst change is that with the new ver 4.2.2 the dialler key pad is missing with the Mute, Add [conference] and Headset functionalities. This is a big let down.


      (September 11, 2013 - 3:09 pm)

      Dude… Mute and Add Call would be enabled once you are in a call. It wont get enabled till then…. Please try….


        (September 11, 2013 - 5:05 pm)

        no…its not….but mute and add call button is present for one of my friend’s phone after update.


          (September 11, 2013 - 5:08 pm)

          however, i changed my home screen mode to standard . it works now.


            (September 12, 2013 - 2:46 pm)

            After changing to standard mode, it works now.


      (September 11, 2013 - 3:10 pm)

      call should be ongoing… if you are just dialling and the call is not yet started then, these options would be disabled….


    (September 11, 2013 - 8:42 am)

      (September 11, 2013 - 3:12 pm)

      Dude… Extra volume feature was there in earlier version as well.


      (September 11, 2013 - 4:28 pm)

    (September 11, 2013 - 4:39 am)

    After update the Facebook icon is showing 4 new notifications even though there are no new notifications. Issue still persist even after reinstalling the face book app. The GUI is not appealing and all my icons are much bigger and no option to decrease the icon size. The 4.1.2 version’s GUI was much better. Other than that, it has lots of cool stuffs and settings.


      (September 11, 2013 - 9:24 am)

      Roger, I agree with you on the GUI part is too much into your eyes types ..

      Koushik Acharya

      (September 11, 2013 - 8:44 pm)

      correct. i faced d same prob. it is showing 5 notifications. but when i went to fb…there was no notification.


        (September 12, 2013 - 2:45 am)

        Hi, have you fixed that FB notification error by chance? Am unable to do so from my end and unable to find any solutions online too. Please leave a reply in case if you find any solution to that.

    I updated my galaxy grand to 4.2.2 and I am experiencing a problem. I have enabled swipe lock and now I am unable to get both swipe lock and pattern lock simultaneously. Pattern lock is very essential and I like the new swipe lock screen as well.
    Any solutions?


      (September 11, 2013 - 6:51 pm)

      Enable pattern lock with swipe option.


    (September 10, 2013 - 9:19 pm)

    I upgraded my Samsung Grand with the latest version and found out really cool apart from few things which i think were really gud… like, not able to see frequently called people under favourites tab, all options for call duration till date is not available, Mute, add call option are not there when you are on a call. Like this there are no. of options which i think were really gud earlier but now are missing.


      (September 11, 2013 - 12:42 am)

      Hi rohit..change your homesdcreen mode to standard..most of the issues will go off..let me know if this helps..:)

            Yudi Shrivastava

            (September 10, 2013 - 11:29 pm)

            well dont go to any service center as i have already visited and guess what they have the oldest version of 4.1.2 which needs to be updated thrice once with 38mb , 78mb and 32 mb for same version …as samsung has not yet provided them with 4.2.2 on their network site , what we use to get from sources is different for that one ….so dont waste your time to refer any service center …wait for 22nd sep as it flow around world wide hence decreasing load on samsung network and hope we can update our phone then …. i know its irritating but that all what we can do …. well this 1st time happen with me and i am going to dump my phone if it still dont receive update ….


        (September 10, 2013 - 8:17 pm)

        wel dnt knwn abt it… i updated thru ota feature…

    Rahul Bakshi

    (September 10, 2013 - 7:19 pm)

    I have updated OTA. There are no issues, no data loss etc. Everything is working fine.


    (September 10, 2013 - 7:10 pm)

    I noticed few bugs after I updated my galaxy grand duos to 4.2.2 (Indian version) app of samsung is not widgets on your screen vanishes after you restart your phone every time.


      (September 10, 2013 - 9:12 pm)

      Also where did developer options go. ?


        (September 11, 2013 - 4:07 pm)

        Developer Option is hidden in 4.2.2
        However, to enable it..
        Go to Settings –> About Device –> Tap build number 5 to 6 times and developer option would be enabled… This is what I found on one of the sites… I tried following those instructions and the developer option was enabled…


          (September 12, 2013 - 7:04 am)

          Hey thanks pran.. got it did as you suggrested.. you have any idea on contact widget dissappearing after restart.?


      (September 11, 2013 - 1:21 pm)

      I had these problems too, I fixed it by simply going to application manager and resetting my app preferences. This will clear anything you’ve previously disabled but you can easily go and disable them again once everything is working.


        (September 11, 2013 - 2:01 pm)

        Thanks steven… its working now..



          (September 11, 2013 - 2:03 pm)

    Really pathetic release, can’t believe how Samsung done this kind of havoc. I am really disappointed after updating my phone to 4.2.2. Kind of UI they have provided in new release is no were near to old one and their competitor iPhone. Is there a way to roll back to previous version please let me know. Poor, very poor performance by Samsung.

    lock screen swipe options are disabled!! I am unable to enable them!!! Initially the phone was sluggish, now it is ok. May be I got used to it. All my data are intact!

    I have updated my grand to 4.2.2 last night. Now my phone has become slow and touch is also not

    After the update, several issues I notice are:
    1. I am unable to bookmark pages
    2. The basic punctuation marks are not available like the previous version. It is a tedious process of going to Symbols on the keyboard and then choosing the appropriate punctuation marks.
    3. I am unsble to turn off haptic vibration. Especially of the lock screen.


    (September 9, 2013 - 11:49 pm)

    Found this bug.. When in the camera, trying to review a pic you just took takes ages.. I’m happy that the new update lets you move apps to SD card now.. :). Wish they included USB on the go support too.. can’t check it for now. And i find the UI more user friendly and less laggy. The improvements in keyboard is appreciable.

    Guys could see a great improvement in interface. 4gb of internal storage is expanded to 8gb. Lock screen enhanced from ripple effect to light effect. No hangs or lags. Haven’t experienced with battery back up yet. ll keep posted on further improvements.


      (September 10, 2013 - 11:56 am)

      It is showing device capacity as 8GB but system is using 3.96GB as previously shown…. and only usable is 4GB only…. its not expanded….

    Hi guys!!! Yesterday I connected my galaxy grand to my laptop and tried to upgrade firmware. I got the message and followed the step. Suddenly after completing 100% the kies application closed and when I tried to open it again, it displays the same message “new firmware upgrade available for your phone”. Today I tried the same thing but again I am facing same issue. I also tried to update it through OTA, but it displays “Latest updates are already installed” and it is not working. Can anybody tell me why I am facing these issue??

    Updated to 4.2.2 via wifi .. Nice to see the user interface looking lot better. Memory management looks better though will have to wait and see..


    (September 9, 2013 - 6:46 pm)

    Updated it. Works pretty much fine too. Just one issue I’m facing is to find the setting where i can disable the vibration while unlocking my screen through a pattern. It wasn’t there earlier, and somehow find it irritating now. Much appreciation for anybody who can find a way for the same.


    (September 9, 2013 - 6:22 pm)

    error occured…. use pc software n kies… it was not updated via software update..


    (September 9, 2013 - 4:19 pm)

    Yes…updated it..n the user interface has just got better! N the ram does not fills up quickly like many are claiming! But I m nt happy with the battery backup contradicting to the claims of leaked version users.

    I have got my 4.2.2 update today. Its 488 mb size along with another stability update if 7.92 mb. Some issue was there with kies-mine failed yesterday but OTA was fine today. I suggest trying manually now and then bcoz there is a cue in Samsung server I was trying since 3 days.
    So far no issues and it appears a great performance enhancement.
