    I have Verizon Note 3 on Jelly Bean and Verizon Note Pro on Kit Kat. Both work flawlessly. Don't fix it if it ain't broken.

    ok, but considering all the KitKat upgrade related problems I keep reading about, it's possible that Verizon had decided to test and retest the daylights out of that puppy before releasing it. I'm not saying that's what's going n, but that's a possibility. One thing I do know is that often, when people aren't happy with their phone, they can be easily talked into switching carriers. So making sure the upgrade works before releasing it would make perfect sense for Verizon. Otherwise, if you absolutely want kitkat now, you could switch over to T-Mobile:
    they pay for your early termination fee do you can get out of your contract.

    I lost count of the number of threads and comments related to the "When will we get KitKat upgrade."

    I understand that there are people that are frustrated and that they're tired of what they consider to be lies. I'm not sticking up for Verizon and I'm not saying you don't deserve what you want.

    The bottom line is it will get here when it gets here and theres absolutely nothing anyone can do about it no matter how many letters you write no matter how many comments you make no matter what you do they're not going to release it until their darn good and ready. Good things come to those that wait and when you least expect it.

    The bottom line for me is I'm sick of hearing about it. All the whining and complaining in the world isn't going to make it happen any sooner.

    So, exactly what benefits do you think you'll be getting from KitKat? Or was the purpose of your letter to tell Verizon that you were jealous of Note 3s on other carriers?

    I have KitKat on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 (original Tab) and find nothing compelling in it over 4.3.
    Phones: Droid (2009 original stock) --> Incredible --> Thunderbolt (Rooted/ROMed) --> Galaxy Nexus (Rooted/ROMed) --> Note 2 (Rooted/ROMed) --> Note 3 (Stock) --> Note 4 (stock)
    Tablets: Tab 10.1 --> Note 10.1 (2014 edition)
    Watches: Pebble (original) --> Moto 360

    After you get kitkat you won't be able to use the sdcard the same way. If I had a Note 3, I'd rather not get kitkat.

    What is the compelling reason to get KitKat on the Note 3? My Note 3 seems to be working just fine. What's on KitKat that's really a must have?

    I understand that you're trying to help. It's quite obvious that you put a lot of work and time into your blog post. It's also obvious that there are numerous people who really want this upgrade.

    On the other hand it also sounds like any other upgrade, it's going to mess some things up while attempting to fix other issues. For some people it will be a good thing for others it will not.

    I'm hoping that the time that verizon is taking to release it, that they're working on getting the bugs out that people have been complaining about. As it stands right now, I have a few issues with my phone although overall it's a great phone. Unfortunately for me, my biggest problem goes back all the way to my S3 and still is not fixed on my Note 3 which is several phones later because I had some replacement phones in the mix with the same problem. I don't foresee KitKat fixing this issue. Samsung keeps ignoring the problem. So if it's going to mess up my phone elsewhere I prefer to not have it. I like the way my SD card works right now and it seems there is a possibility the upgrade will mess that up for me.

    To anyone who was offended by my previous post in this thread you have my sincere apologies.

    Biggest reasons for the update are:
    Tap to pay
    Better battery life
    Performance improvements

    This are really the biggest reasons to get the upgrade.

    I get the basic point of the letter. Valid points. That is one of the reasons I will not go to Verizon. Either that, or Root and flash a custom ROM. But that solution only circumvents the real issue. I agree with the idea of 'at least keep us in the loop of a possible release date'.

    Don't need tap to pay for me, battery life is exceptional on mine and performance is great. I'm good just the way things are right now!

    And you need those updates because???? I've not seen bad battery life, bad performance on my Note 3. Tap to pay? Do you really prefe to use your phone to pay? There's not too many stores that offer that anyway.

    Better is better.

    Why do you feel the need to debate and make an update that can make the phone better seem like a non factor?

    There are also some apps coming out that need 4.4. I'd use Google Camera just for the Lens Blur setting, but good luck without Kit Kat...

    Performance improvements and improved memory management is good for those of us who use our phones above an elementary level. Same for battery life.

    4.4 also brings back some features I had on my S3 that currently isn't on this phone. Like save offline in the browser.

    Gear Fit won't work with this phone without 4.4.

    Camera will improve a little in 4.4.

    And Tap to Pay still won't work with Google Wallet on the Verizon Note 3. ISIS will still be your only option.

    I buy a phone for what it has.. not what it might get.. im glad I dont have kitkat yet if there is problems..

    With the note4 coming in half a year (probably) the new is probably the focus.

    Ive accepted that with verizon you are buying what you have on the phone.. in the case of kitkat I got it on my droid maxx and it didnt make a big difference.. its not a system changer..

    My two cents..
