Thumbs down verizon s4 system update texting problems

Anyone else get their s4 update only to find now that trying to text is a major pain in the ace? When typing a contact name into a text, the phone no longer finds your contact. Is there a way to fix this issue? God I hate updates. First they delete my music, now I can't even text without it being a major hassle. First World problems first world problems.

Nope, my Verizon S4 works perfectly after the update. Thank God for updates or we'd all be using broke stuff.

So is it that your contacts arent there anymore or that the normal look up when you type in a name are not working?

Have you gone into your account settings to make sure everything is set to sync?

No, my contacts are still there, but when you go in to text someone and start typing their name in, their number won't pop up anymore. The only thing that comes up is their email address. The only thing that I found that works so far is if I go through old texts, open them, and then re-save the person's contact info even if it is already in my contact list.

So in your contacts list, have you opened up a contact to see if the number is still associated with the name? From the way it just pulls up the email address exclusively, it seems that way.

Also, do you have multiple accounts or just the Google account that syncs contacts with your phone?

yes, the numbers are still associated with the name. The problem is quite strange. I only have one account synced. When I try to make a new text, if you type in the person's name, it will no longer type in the number for you, and only show an email address. In order to text, I have to go into contacts, scroll to the person I want to find, tap on their info, and then tap the text button. This makes it virtually impossible of course to send out a group text.
