I'm confused, you have kit kat on other phones in the sprint line, so what 'word' is Sprint waiting for? All the other carriers have rolled out KK 4.0 to their Note III's, so not sure what the hold up is. Can you explain this further, or is this just more Sprint garbage canned answers?
I'm assuming you meant 4.4? 4.0 has been out for quite a while now, and the Note 3 even shipped with 4.3.
Also, just because other Sprint phones are already running 4.4 means absolutely nothing, other than that/those manufacturer/s beat Samsung to the update. Your statement is like saying that Chevy has 2015 models out, so Ford should too. Each manufacturer is different and releases their updates differently. That's why buying a Nexus device is good if you like having the latest version of Android before otherso (The following is not the case, this is just for example purposes: HTC could send 4.4 to Sprint 8 months before Samsung sends it, so Sprint's Samsung devices would be at least 8 months behind HTC's). Samsung has to send the 4.4 update to Sprint before Sprint can go through it, add their normal bloatware, and then begin pushing it out in OTA updates.
Lol, you won't reply anymore, why are even still replying at this point!? If it's not worth your time, THEN STOP WASTING IT! You're contradicting yourself by saying "Duh" that Sprint doesn't necessarily have 4.4 for the Note 3 just because other carriers do, but in your original post you said that was your argument (FACEPLAM).
Oh, and thanks so much for stooping to my level, haha. Since you've been calling me childish names since your first reply, it makes it pretty obvious that you're a kid on your parents contract. Be sure to tell Mommy an Daddy thanks for your Note 3 when they're tucking you in to bed tonight. You kids these days have it too good! When you grow up in a few years, you'll look back on this and realize how immature you were acting.
Anyway, thanks for the laughs kiddo!
Just got the kitkat update on my note 3 on feb 20th at around 2am cst. My brother had to manually check for updates for his to appear, but Sprint seems to be the first to release it on the note 3. I just hope this update fixes most of the old problems with this phone and wont be too glitchy or create any new major problems. I surprised there wasn't any notice posted on the forums. They're usually pretty quick with that.
As LouJiang just said, the KitKat update is rolling out now. Try a manual check for updates in settings. That's what I did, and I the update was available for me. My big questions about this: (1) does it fix the flaky WiFi connection issue, and (2) does it fix the erroneous KNOX notification issue? I hope so, but we might need to wait for an official Sprint announcement, since I didn't see anything about those points specifically in the update notes displayed to me. They may fall under carrier-specific fixes though, so Sprint, can you offer more info? Thanks.
