Where is Android 4.4 KitKat for the Verizon Galaxy Note 3?!?

Enthusiast - Level 2

Where is it, Verizon?!?!? I called a week ago and tech support tried to tell me it hasn't even been released by Samsung. I know better. Samsung's site shows the releases for the KitKat update and the affected Galaxy Note 3 models. Sprint, AT&T and now T-Mobile have it. Why is "The nation's most reliable network" the last to get it?!?!? How is it that a flagship phone form Samsung doesn't have it yet? KitKat was released in October of 2013!! Samsung's own page shows the update status and the networks its been rolled out to. If we are willing to pay the most for our service, shouldn't we get the best overall service for our phones?

Verizon should hopefully be pushing the KitKat 4.4.2 OTA for the Note 3 tomorrow (April 21st). 🙂

Leaked Kitkat for Verizon Note 3, it works fine.

(Rooting discussion removed as required by Verizon Wireless Terms of Service)

So that means the update should arrive soon.

Here you go, I would credit the origin but I found it so long ago I don't remember where I found it.

Like most posting here, I like to have the latest and greatest OS on my phones. HOWEVER, after reading multiple posts on the Moto forum site (Ultra, Maxx, Moto X and a couple of others) as well as that for the recently released KitKat for LGG2,  I am not sure why anyone would even want this update. Battery issues, Email issues, texting issues, exchange server issues, loss of some SD card functionality, and reboots...just to mention a few. I would prefer to have a phone that works great on 4.3 than a phone that may or may not work as good on 4.4.2. Again, I understand everybody wanting OS upgrades, I like them too, but with all the issues being reported with 4.4.2 (across multiple phones and multiple carriers), why would anyone want this update.

Since 4.4.3 is out and about, hoping Verizon skips 4.4.2 and just moves on to 4.4.3.

Verizon Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update coming on May 2 ...

Can Verizon support at least be able to confirm that this release date is true and will include the Galaxy Note 3? The Note 3 is an awesome device that deserves to get timely software updates (it should have been the first to get KitKat 4.4.2 and should be the first to get Android 4.5 or 5.0). Android 4.5 or 5.0 is being worked on right now and is due to be released sometime in Q3 or Q4 of this year. Lets not fall 2 updates behind!

Doubtful, they will maybe come by and give you one of their canned answers about that web site where they announce all that.  They usually do that.

I agree with you, why keeping customers in the DARK when we constantly asking for this.

Verizon just pushed out KK for the S4.  It's loading on his phone as I type this.  Still no word on the Note #.
