What is current AT&T update?
I looked back at previous posts attempting to answer this question myself but couldn't. I see posts from the middle of June referring to a 4.3 update and since I'm already running 4.3 I'm can't ascertain what this update is. I checked for AT&T updates today and there is one but before I download it I'd like to know what it is. I use PdaNet+ for laptop tethering and I want to be certain it will still work after the update. Thanks in advance for answering my question.

Re: What is current AT&T update?
I checked on the PdaNet+ website and the S3 w/ 4.4 works w/ PdaNet+ according to them. I guess I'll update to 4.4 and hope I like it a lot better than I did the 4.3 update which slightly increased my battery usage & severely decreased the range of my Plantronics Bluetooth earpiece.
I read some of the threads here on 4.4 and I'm thinking clearing the cache after the update is a good idea. Did you do that?
I just as realized as I'm downloading the update that I was looking at the Verizon portion of the PdaNet+ devices chart so now I'll have to wait for the update to finish to see if PdaNet+ still works. I certainly hope it does because it saves me $20/mo in tethering charges. For the AT&T S3 the chart doesn't say anything about 4.4 so I've got my fingers crossed. It does state that 4.3 breaks the WiFi tethering but I use the Bluetooth Dun with great results. Sooner or later I think I'm going to have to pay for the tethering because I'm planning on getting a Note 4 when they're available and I don't think PdaNet+ works on the Note 3. Also I think I lose my unlimited data when I add tethering.
PdaNet+/FoxFi works fine in the Bluetooth Dun mode on my Win7 PC after the 4.4.2 update.
