Bug of note 3 : Index Service has stopped

A number of people have encountered this problem. The message “Index Service has stopped” pops up frequently on the screen. Some users report they can click it away and continue using the Note 3, while others are suffering freezes and having to reboot the phone. It is related to files that the phone is attempting to index and generally happens when you insert a big MicroSD card with lots of photos or PDFs files on it. It could be a single corrupt file that’s causing the issue. If you can find the individual file responsible then it’s just a case of removing it and you won’t get the message again, but that can be like finding a needle in a haystack.

Potential solution:

  1. Turn the phone off and remove your MicroSD card.
  2. Back up all files onto your computer.
  3. Put the MicroSD card back into the phone and turn it on.
  4. Go to Settings > Storage > Format SD card (you may have to do this twice).
  5. Now you should be able to copy the files back from the computer by plugging in the phone via USB. Make sure the MicroSD card is empty and then begin transferring the files back onto it. Just watch out for warnings about incompatible files and do it in small groups, so you can identify the culprit if the problem reoccurs.

note 3 Bug: “Prevention information” message

A number of people have encountered a pop-up message on the Note 3 with the header “Prevention information.” It goes on to say “An application has been forced to stop for an unauthorized attempt to access system in your device. It may be safe to delete an application obtained from an unauthorized route. Check now?” and there’s an option to “not show for 30 days.” You can cancel out or click OK, which takes you to your list of apps. Some people report getting this message without installing any apps from unknown sources and it seems to be some kind of bug or false positive rather than an actual issue with an unsafe app.

Workaround:

  • Long press on the message and select App info, which should take you to Knox Notification Manager. Try clearing the data and cache, then go to Settings > General > Security and make sure that Unknown sources is not ticked. If you reboot the phone the message might come back.
  • You could disable Knox or disable the notifications from Knox, but you’ll probably need to root your Note 3 and freeze a number of apps and services related to it for that to work, and it means you won’t potentially benefit from the security it’s supposed to provide.

Potential solution:

  • You should get an update to fix this OTA, but it depends on your carrier. You can always check by going to Settings > About phone > Software update.

Samsung note 3 – Problem: Region lock

Samsung has applied a region lock on the Galaxy Note 3, which means that if you put a SIM card from a different region into it, the device will lock up. This is probably to try and curb people importing phones from different regions, but it’s an obvious pain for frequent travelers. If you have a rooted device then there’s an app that can help you. If not, then we suggest complaining to Samsung customer support.

Bug: Random restart and boot loop

samsung galaxy note 3 top screen angleA number of Galaxy Note 3 owners have reported random restarts where the device just reboots unexpectedly. Some unfortunate people have encountered a boot loop where the phone just continually reboots. It’s not entirely clear what is causing this. It could be something to do with apps trying to update, or it could be related to there being too many apps or services trying to start up.

It seems likely to be a software glitch of some kind and you would expect Samsung to release a patch to fix it, but there’s no telling how long that might take. In the meantime you could take your Galaxy Note 3 back to the retailer and ask for a replacement. Some people report the same issue with the replacement; others have suggested that their replacement model works perfectly.

There are others things to try.

Workaround:

Remove the battery and the SD card.
Put the battery back in and turn on the device.
Try Menu > Settings > Wi-Fi > Menu > Advanced and uncheck Always allow scanning.
Now you should be able to turn the device off and reinsert the SD card.
Boot it up and your problem might be gone.

Potential solutions:

You could remove the SD card, backup the data, put it back in the phone and try reformatting it via Settings > Storage > Format SD card .
If it’s stuck in a boot loop and you can’t get in to the main menu, you could factory reset the Galaxy Note 3 using the hardware buttons (but you will lose all data on it). Back up first if you can, and then:

Turn off the device.
Press and hold the Volume up, Home, and Power buttons.
When you see the Galaxy Note 3 logo, let go of Power.
When you see the Android System Recovery screen let go of Volume up and Home.
Press Volume down to highlight wipe data / factory reset.
Press Power to select it.
Press Volume down to highlight delete all user data.
Press Power to select it and wait until it’s done.
Highlight reboot system now and select it with Power and your device will reboot.

Some people have been getting phantom notification sounds or vibrations on their Note 3 and when they check to see what it is there’s nothing in the notification shade. There are a lot of possible culprits here so we’ll run through some of the main ones.

Potential solutions:

  • Go to Settings > Accessibility and look for Notification reminder. It could be the ghost of a notification past. Turn this off and it should stop.
  • It could be related to NFC. Try going into Settings and turn NFC It may be rightly or wrongly alerting you to a possible NFC device in the vicinity.
  • It could be a Gmail email coming in under another tab like promotions or social, so it doesn’t look as though you have a new email. You can change this in Gmail settings by managing your labels.
  • If that didn’t work then you’re stuck with the prospect of going into the Settings on every app you have installed to try and find something that might be causing it.
