    Believe it when I see it... Sprint doesn't push anything out on Nexus devices only Google does...

    I know this doesn't specifically say it's Sprint updating, but many articles report it is.

    Yep. But Sprint can (and does) announce when updates are made available from Google for Nexus devices.

    Right

    I've just noticed a lot of people are thinking it is only Sprint though and T-Mobile is screwing them or its going to add the Sprint spark icon. Schmana schmana...

    Here is the post this morning on the AC front page: Sprint: New Nexus 5 update rolling out today | Android Central

    4.4.3 has been rumored to be circulating internally at Google for testing, so seeing Sprint announce an update doesn't surprise me.

    Doesn't surprise me either, it is a little weird Google wouldn't announce it, but Sprint would. Either way I look forward to the update!

    Kind of wonder if there was communications mixup between Sprint and Google and 4.4.3 is not actually out quite yet.

    That's what I would bet on.

    The Sprint announcement page doesn't mention the version 4.4.3 though. Kind of interesting.

    I have T-Mobile. I just hope I don't have to wait a month for this thing to be pushed out. I hope it improves battery life.

    Has nothing to do with T-Mob. The update for your Google phone comes directly from Google.

    So I just noticedd that in Settings>About Phone my device does not have a System Updates line/feature.
    It is rooted with a custom ROM, could that be why? Thanks.

    This is true, other than the Sprint statement, there seems to be no official word from Google.

    This is how Google releases updates Over the Air (OTA) from a old article from the last Android update article last year.;

    Recently, a Google engineer cleared the process up for Nexus users, giving them a detailed look at how Google rolls out its Android software to Nexus devices. Here is what he had to say:

    Rollouts are conducted in phases. Typically they start at 1% of devices for around 24 48 hours; we watch the return rates and resulting device checkins and error reports (if any), and make sure nothing looks wrong before sending it to more. Then typically it goes to 25%, 50%, 100% over the course of a week or two.

    What the percentages mean is that when your device checks in, it has a 1% chance (for example) of being offered the OTA. If it doesnt (randomly) get an offer, it will never get an offer until the next batch.

    OH, once your device checks in and gets turned down, thats it until the next batch. Mashing on the check for updates button just causes your device to check in again, and get automatically turned down again. Think about how that makes your device feel! WONT SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE PHONES?!

    That said, once the new batch does start, hitting that button does give you a new roll of the dice but once. Since devices usually only check in for system updates every 24 hours (I think? Certainly on a many-hours basis) this can get you your shot sooner than it would happen on its own.

    So, mash away. Just be patient, and mashing on it more often than once or twice a day isnt going to gain you anything.

    Something that Nexus 5 owners should keep in mind today and over the next week or so. Typically, roll outs take about a week or so to finish up so those waiting for the upgrade Over-the-Air could be in for a bit of a wait

    LOL

    I can hardly wait for the update. The bluetooth experience on my Play Store-purchased Nexus 5 has gotten progressively weirder for a couple of months. And the camera bug keeps kicking in and eating my wife's battery charge. Had they presented these as a beta release in November, I might have made a different decision. Certainly a better informed one.
