We didn't enter password because we don't want to get locked out. He never had a pattern code, and now he can't get into his phone. Pretty angry with Verizon

Since The update my phone fails to auto connect to my bluetooth devices, i obviously deleted paired and trusted devices and re-added, but made no difference. I also get an alert telling me to update my google play store, i click on it and it takes me to the google play store, where the only option i have is to "deactivate" it, i went to do this in the end and it tells me i need adminstrator rights. But to be honest why would i want to deactivate it anyway?

This update is terrible. My phone battery is dead halfway through the day and it is not even being used!! Now I have to pack a charging cord with me everywhere. My programs will just quit working and I have to shut them down and start up again. My memo app just died and now I cannot get any of the data out of it. Not a happy camper right now.....

Since update my SD card keeps changing from corrupted, to not being there at all and phone requests I insert a card, or working normally. All since latest update, I loved my phone before this!

After update, the pattern lock screen appeared, which I haven't used in a year, used my old pattern but would not open, tried so many time it locked me out, so then I had to enter my password which it also does not recognize, now my phone is completely unusable. No more updates for me.

What a nightmare! This update made my phone run hot, restart randomly, go real slow, and become unresponsive! I spent so much time deleting things to make room for this phone to update just to find out I was better off NOT updating it! The Galaxy S5 Sport specs say the OS is "only upgradable to v6.0 (Marshmallow)"...so WHY would you send me Lollipop and RUIN my phone?? It's SO SLOW now and I'm furious with Samsung. My kids all have iPhones and they're always trying to talk me into getting one. I always brag how wonderful my Galaxy S5 is...or WAS... I hate to say it but MY KIDS ARE RIGHT. I'M HEADING TO THE SPRINT STORE TOMORROW FOR A NEW IPHONE!!!!!! Samsung thinks by causing their older phones to slow down we'll be forced to buy a new phone... I bet they'd think again if we all just switched to iphones!! BYE SAMSUNG!!!!
