USCC Galaxy Note 3 KitKat update

Another staggered rollout begins February 19 for KitKat on the US Cellular Note 3

The US Cellular Galaxy S4 won't be the only Samsung phone on USCC getting a KitKat update tomorrow. These docs say that the carrier's Galaxy Note 3 also has the new hotness coming.

Like the Galaxy S4 update, it's a stanged rollout that is expected to be 100 percent complete in 10 days. Also like the S4, the preloaded apps Daily Perks and MobiTiles are getting pulled out of the operating system, but will be available for download from Google Play.

To make sure you're ready, you need to be on the latest stock firmware, have a Google account and be able to connect to Samsung's FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) update server. If you have any issues, starting tomorrow (Feb. 19) you can visit a USCC location and they'll get you updated with that magic file.

Thanks, Anon!

US Cellular Galaxy Note 3 also gets KitKat Feb. 19, says these docs


Yaaay!! That means it probably won't be too much longer for the T-Mobile version. I'm excited, because I'll be able to install the Google Dialer, once my Note 3 receives 4.4. I have the Google Experience Launcher installed, but the Google Dialer would make the launcher feel more complete. After having the Nexus 5, the stock TouchWiz dialer is kinda meh, especially since it lacks the ability to search for local business numbers.

Come on T Mobile.... But I don't see it before the other Top Carriers.... Or do they have it already?

I'm not sure, if T-Mobile has it already. They could very well be last to updating. It's not a big deal. The update will come, soon enough.

I am running the leak, it is either there or really close. I think that they waited for the case fix/sd card issue before going to town on it. Not sure why though, my case has not given me an issue.

I keep hearing about this leak but yet I cant find anything on it....

To download the Google Experience Launcher, I just downloaded the files (from Android Authority)=, I believe). A simple Google search will point you in the right direction. A few files need to be downloaded, and then you'll be good!

To get the Google dialer, you have to be on version 4.4. I think the process may involve root. I'm not entirely sure, though. I'll look into it more, once 4.4 hits my Note 3.

No just have to have 4.4 (I believe)

Sent from inside a cave. Yes, T-Mobile covers caves. N5

Good morning,I got the kit Kat update on us cellular Galaxy S4 last night or rather early this morning around 1:o'clock AM,was a time consuming update and hope it's beneficial,so far all is good.Was surprised how quick I got here in the Midwest,would imagine that lots are waking up to a software upgrade.

Can't wait for official KitKat update for tmobile note 2. I have really found it useful to have WiFi calling. Even my brother in law with Verizon was jealous. Neither of us had signal and I was still able to make calls. C'mon tmobile.
