USCC Galaxy S4 KitKat

Staggered rollout will require valid Google account and WIfi access

Next in line for some crunchy-good KitKat upgrade magic will be US Cellular's Samsung Galaxy S4. The OTA, which they're calling a maintenance release — they just don't understand the power of KitKat, apparently — should start to arrive February 19. Like most things that are good, some will have to wait as this is another staggered rollout. The good news is that 10 days after it starts, everyone should have it. Hooray!

Besides the update to Android 4.4 (we're not exactly sure of the point number here), the Daily Perks and MobiTiles apps will be removed from the operating system. Users who want to continue using either of these apps can find them in Google Play for download and installation, just like they should be. More hooray!

Anyhoo, if you're a USCC customer with a Galaxy S4, you've got one day to get prepared for the OTA if you've hacked your phone to oblivion. You'll need to be on the approved current version, and have all your Google and Samsung ducks in a row. Be sure to holler when you start seeing this one.
