    Default maximum number of rollout firmware updates exceeded??

    So after growing tired of waiting for my carrier (3 uk) to send out the update I decided to unlock my phone from the network to see if this would get the update. I tried updating va kies first and new firmware was available however kies just froze so I tried using the phone its self to update over WiFi and got the message maximum number of rollout updates exceeded. Try later or use kies.
    Why the hell is it so hard to update my s4 ? This is the only problem I have with Samsung. Love their products but support is f****ng awful.
    If anyone can shed some light on this I would be very grateful. Cheers in advance

    I've got a unbranded Vodafone S4 and I had that message for about 6 days and it was doin' my bloody head in.

    I turn my phone off overnight and when turned it back on Sunday morning it picked the update straight up.

    All you have to do is be patient and eventually you'll get the update, Btw I can't really tell the difference with the new firmware. The camera is better but that's all I've noticed.

    So you're not missing much

    If you get that message then your phone is ready for the update. Just plug it into kies an walah!

    Don't you think I tried!!!!!

    The Firmware Update option in Kies was greyed out and it wasn't doing anything and saying I had the latest firmware installed.

    The only update I got through Kies was to update the Kies software itself.

    It's bloody useless software anyway!!!!

    Yeah, that message just means Samsung's servers are too overloaded to allow an OTA update. Going through Kies worked fine for me.

    Out of curiosity, what improvements to the phone have you seen as a result of the update?
