Re: What I was just told about the KitKat Update.

I'm pretty sure that's not how it works, manufactures get the OS, then put their twist on it, ie LG's UI, then at that point then send it to the carriers, the carriers then test it, put their bloat-ware on it and push it out, so it isn't us waiting for them it's us waiting for you, case and point AT&T pushed it out first, then T-Mobile making what you're saying wrong.

We are and have been waiting on sprint for this update for a while now, LG gave it over to you guys and everyone else a while ago.

Re: What I was just told about the KitKat Update.

Okay, I've heard from several reps that Kit Kat has indeed started being pushed to the G2 in waves. They do it that way to avoid network congestion. Now, where they start and how the waves flow, I have no idea. I would think we can all expect to see it at varying times in this month. My bigger concern is my service. I've been told different things about this, and I am really starting to wonder if I can believe any of it. How is it that every rep I talk to about my service area tells me something different if you're all supposed to be looking at the same information? I don't mean to be offensive or pushy, I would just like to know the facts about whether or not I'm going to have reliable service on my G2. What's the point of 4.4 being available in my area if I can't even download it?

Re: What I was just told about the KitKat Update.

I completely agree with you. Ever since I've gotten my phone I have mostly just had no more than two bars on it at my house. Once in a blue moon, maybe three. Most of the time, no bars and slow data speeds. I've asked Sprint about it several times and always get a different answer. Now you know why my screen name is what it is.

OTA updates are always pushed by serial number...

Re: What I was just told about the KitKat Update.

But I can't find any news about it being pushed online. So, I'm a little skeptical.

Re: What I was just told about the KitKat Update.

you might hop over to androidcentral to see what info they have on it..usually you will only see rumor in these forums..they wont post anything about the update until usually the day it will start getting kicked out..you might even hop over to the actual factual LG sight and see what it says in there...more often than not you can get info going straight to the source...

Re: What I was just told about the KitKat Update.

Thanks. I called Sprint and LG. Both says the other push out the update. (Gahhhh!) Anyhow...no news about it being out yet. I think the reps here are confusing us with the S4 owners.
