    Yes, I'd like to compare the N7105 version with what Sprint got. I'm on AT&T and the devs were able to port the official OTA for the International N7105 version and bring it to our AT&T (i317) version.

    Still impatiently waiting in St. Louis, MO. I despise staggered releases.

    My OTA update was downloaded to my phone when I woke up this morning. It installed smoothly. I haven't noticed any big changes so far but haven't really looked. Though I understand the staggered releases aren't done on a geographic basis, I'm in Denver, in case anyone wants to know.

    I got the update this morning in Los Angeles. A couple of apps did not start correctly (Pandora and Maps). I cleared the data for those apps, and they have been running fine since. So far, I haven't noticed much difference. The battery seems to be lasting longer, but it is still too early to make any real conclusion.

    I still can't seem to get the update via OTA or Kies. Nothing. Anyone in NJ get it yet?

    Yea there's no real big difference, but there's little small changes here and there. You'll notice them the more you keep exploring the new update

    Hello, I went into the sprint zone and saw where the PRL update was available and tried to update, but it said it was updated. I then called sprint and they said the new update was there, but hasn't completely pushed thru. I really don't know cause most agents just blow smoke up your but.

    You don't go into the sprint zone app, and you don't update the PRL. Go to settings, tap more. Then scroll down till you see system update, then tap on update Samsung software and hit the check for updates button. Hope that helps

    OTA means over the air. So to answer your question, no, they didn't get it through kies.

    I know what OTA means. It's just he said his phone wasn't active. To my Knowledge doesn't your phone have to be active to get the update or can you get it through WiFi? Since Sprint is pushing out the update and it"s not a WiFi only device.
