    Default S4 Active: 4.3 Update?

    Us folks over on the regular S4 are all getting 4.3. My ex has the Active and I was wondering if its possible that he is getting it as well?

    It never fails: you spend the money on a super phone and it gets left by the wayside for accessories and updates. Never again.

    My next phone will be straight from Google. All the "providers" do is tack on their bloatware.

    Boyfriend just checked and his says nothing at all yet either...I was hoping they dropped it early. Best bet is to expect it tomorrow because thats the date on the leaked doc. Tomorrow or after.

    AT&T is not going to release a 4.3 update for the Active. They couldn't get it stable. Instead, they said they will be releasing KitKat 4.4.2 in the 1st quarter of 2014. But to be honest, I wouldn't hold my breathe. I am realizing my Christmas present to myself is turning out to be a depressing dud.

    Edited....

    Oh yes I agree it is still a very good device. I have it rooted and can remove all the bloat ware and use all my apps that I like to use and I have WiFi hot spot enabled for it on StraightTalk with LTE enabled on my sim, so I am not that disappointed. I am just a tweak-er/tinkerer and don't like the carriers telling me what I can do with my expensive phone that I paid full retail for. That is my biggest complaint. Otherwise, I do love the phone.

    I just got use to the 4.3 rom on my skyrocket and love the 4.3 rom experience. I am currently messing around with SafeStrap and 4.3 roms for the regular s4 . I am sure AT&T will release the KitKat update (most likely at the later end of quarter 1 of 2014), but they should at least update this phone at least once with a stable rom beyond 4.2.2. IMO

    There wasn't an official press release, it was from an AT&T employee in their forums. Stating due to the number of issues customers are having with the update on the regular S4, AT&T has decided to for go the 4.3 update and focus on releasing an update for KitKat in quarter 1 of 2014.
