    Default 4.3 update for Note 2: Post your results and feedback here

    Title says it all!

    I'm running an unlocked AT&T Note 2 in Canada. As far as I know, OTA will never work for me. I've checked Kies and it's not showing me any updates past 4.1.2. Does anyone know typically how long it will take before I see the update?

    Are you on AT&T's network in Canada or are you on a Canadian carrier? Your best option is to contact whatever carrier you're on and ask about the update. But I don't think you'd run into any problems with the update for your phone. After all, your phone is just an AT&T Note 2 that's been freed from its cage (SIM lock) and the update was created specifically for the AT&T Note 2, regardless of whether it's locked or unlocked. Problems would start to emerge if you tried to install the 4.3 update for the international version. But you wouldn't do that now, would you?

    I don't know too much about unlocked phones located in other countries, so I don't want to steer you in the wrong direction.

    Who has downloaded and installed the update? How did it go and what changes/problems did you notice so far?

    I'm using Rogers up here in Canada. I know that I have to use the AT&T firmware. I'm hoping that it'll be as simple as Kies getting the update soon and I can just download as usual.

    I think that if you try to use the software update option directly on your phone, the connection will fail because you're not on AT&T; you need to be on AT&T to update the firmware officially from them. Updating via Kies is apparently not an option, because my phone is connected to Kies right now, but it gives the error "Your device's current firmware version is not supported to update firmware via Kies."

    I don't get that unsupported message from Kies. It just says that 4.1.2 is the latest firmware.

    Did you check to see if Air Command was enabled? Some settings can cause Air Command to become disabled.

    Where would that be? It makes no mention in in the spen section

    Can you post a screenshot of your settings screen and the S-pen section? I just realized that I confused Air Command with Air View.

    Maybe we didn't get air command?

    I have it. Looks great so far. I was hoping for S Health, but don't see it. The only problem I have is that my Fitbit Flex no longer syncs with the BlueTooth. I have an email in to FitBit Support.

    I found I am able to download and install Google wallet (used to be at&t blocked it)

    I can't seem to find the nfc pay in store option inside the wallet? Did att block this feature?

    update: Well it would seem that tap and pay was disabled somehow. Any ideas how to work around this?

    Update2: after a lengthy conversation with att, they can't provide the answer because there isn't an answer.....I hate att

    I just updated my phone with no problems. Here's one of the things I noticed about the update.

    Skip over to 1:27 on this video:

    The guy on there mentions the "Use for all screens" for the one-handed operation setting. I looked for this setting but it wasn't there. For those who updated, do you see that setting there? It's under Settings>My device>Input and control>One-handed operation. My suspicion is that AT&T removed the "Use for all screens" feature.

    I'll keep you posted on the other things I find on this update.

    Got mine this afternoon! Look nice! Seemed a little sluggish at first, but updates came immediately & cleared the issue!

    I can tell you, the WiFi is not as good. I was where I have a wifi I use ask the time, not a great signal, but now the signal is almost non-existent and I'm getting a "your Wi-Fi has become unstable" notification.

    You cannot update through Kies. Connecting your phone to Kies will give this error message: "Your device's current firmware version is not supported to update firmware via Kies." The only option is to update OTA, via Wi-Fi.

    I used my university's Wi-Fi network, which averages about 30-35 mbps down and about the same up. It took me about 50 minutes to download the 695.85MB file.

    took me prolly 30ish minutes to download. Seems pretty good so far, seems much snappier. Has a noticeably slower startup time. see what happens tomorrow with battery life. Sure was hoping for the new gallery/camera, air command and s healt but o well.

    Can you and everyone else take a look at post #15 (the video I linked) and tell me whether that feature is on our Note 2's? It wasn't on mine and I would like that it is not a missing feature only on my phone.
