    Maybe it's still updating some things in the background. Did you try clearing the cache. I have a different model (t-mobile) so can't give any personal experience about the update.

    Nope, haven't tried that. It just takes a second or two longer before it fully expands. Used to be super quick

    Another thing for people to keep in mind after the update is that sometimes there are settings that have been reset. So it's a good idea to go through them and make sure everything is the way you want. My last FW upgrade it reset some sync settings i had changed and also reset my APN to the default one from the new one I had added.

    It allows you to use both wifi and mobile data at the same time for downloads over 30MB - really speeds things up - but of course you need to consider what your data plan is to decide whether you want to use it. It works only for Google apps right now - like Play Store and Movies and Music, etc.

    The location quick setting just replaced the GPS one.

    Ah I see, thanks.

    Be interesting if battery makes any difference or not

    Our similar T-Mobile update, that included download booster and kid's mode, improved my battery life noticeably. But I don't know if the fixes were TMO specific or if they are in your update too. Our update also included VoLTE, but not Knox 2.0, so they are not exactly the same update. But maybe some of the same bug fixes went in. Anyway, hope it's good for you guys.

    Well since this update my note 3 will not charge from a Socket outlet at all, my phone will only charge from a console or a pc.

    That should not happen, did you do a dirty or a clean load?

    I tried Software Update OTA 3 days ago and got this.

    I have never downloaded OTA, only via usb to Kies. Anyway I keep forgetting to hook up to a pc when I get home late, but if @Shanghaichica doesn't have it, it's unlikely I will.
    Now I know it's around 180 mb I won't be trying OTA.

    I know nothing.

    Aww - wth.
    It's done now.

    I checked again after 3 days. It was there. I was in a cafe on wifi, so I went ahead over the air. 45 minutes including installation. A little annoying it allows emails and other activity while downloading on a slow connection, but I guess people would complain.
    This was a major update but still 4.4.2 with a new build # as jpr said.
    (Thanks btw)

    We have this virtual tour feature on the Tmobile Note 3 too. I didn't realize it hadn't been there all along. I guess it must have come with our update last month if no one else had it.

    LOL. Sure. Just send the fare.
    If you still have a Scottish passport bring it to Samsung and they may let you have it early.

    I haven't used it yet, just got home, but that sounds like what it's good for.
    Meantime I have a few new icons and menus. I'm gonna play with them for a while.

    Start by turning off the smart network switch. That may not be the specific cause of your data issue but I see you have it checkmarked and it causes a lot of connectivity problems.

    Yes I tried that. I have moved area now and it hasn't re-occurred. Never saw it disappear unless data was off in the past I guess.
    Different GPS satellite fix icon as well when you open Maps, as Waz in the other thread meant.
    So when do you think the US and carriers will get this. You have some of it on T=Mobile already.
    I learned a while ago how to check my CSC code for FW availability lists and region of origin info on that other site, as you did for this. Sarks may have to wait a while, on Verizon I think?

    It looks like TMO has everything you have except for Knox 2.0 and we got our update back in May. Verizon is usually last of course. Hard to know with the US carriers. Since TMO has had this for 6 or so weeks and you have it now, I would think the others are in testing, but you never really know until it is released or if someone knowledgeable leaks it.
