    Yes!!!! HTC is skipping 4.2.2 and going straight to 4.3 for all U.S Carriers of the One by the end of September. HTC One Skipping Android 4.2 for Android 4.3 in U.S.

    Keywords: "End of September". Let's hope that:

    1. They actually stick to that
    2. It's closer to now rather than that date
    3. The (Sprint) HTC One is the first one to receive it out of the batch

    It's rumored that the carriers have had 4.3 in their hands for a little while, so hopefully that translates into results.

    Hopefully, AT&T is performing their soak test already. Otherwise, it could take long for AT&T to roll it out. I had the same experience with Motorola Atrix.

    ATT is releasing HTC One Mini with 4.2.2 which tells us they are all good with One 4.2.2.

    That was all speculation though. There was never an official word from HTC regarding when/if 4.2.2 would be available in the U.S.

    I hope T-Mobile is one of the first to get it.

    Honestly, I was skipping all the updates and going right to 5.0 anyway. I thank Apple for that. I used to be of the mindset of "ooo, new OS refresh. Must get immediately!" And then they rolled out iOS6 which removed Google Maps and Youtube, and I was like "well, you know, I don't want this pile of crap... and if that's the way they want to be about it, then I don't want an iPhone anymore for that matter".

    So honestly, I can thank Apple for my newfound "be happy with what you're using" attitude.

    That, plus I am rooted anyway and so I have to wait until Android Revolution gets up to 5.0 anyway. :P

    Google Maps & YouTube had their own apps after IOS 6 was released.

    I'm thinking his point was, when iOS 6 came out, Apple replaced Google Maps as the default nav. That was enough to inspire great deals o' hate in the iCommunity and caused iOS 6 to not be so positively-accepted.

    At least this time HTC themselves made this statement. However, due to carriers testing, we will have to wait a little more. Anyways, I'm happy with the one the way it is, but 4.3 would be nice.

    I too had the same "I need the latest update now or I will die" mindset about 10 years ago. Since then, I realized that it doesn't make a big difference in my everyday use. I had HTC phone before they changed their name to HTC. Then I switched to iPhone 5. And now I am back to Android (HTC One). It's all the same with regards to all these phones. There is always the next update. It starts with a rumor. Then a confirmation from the company. Then you will end up waiting for it and once you get it, your phone will be too outdated for that update. Like you, I'm now happy with what I got.

    This can't be "exactly right" since 2 days from now Verizon is finally getting the ONE and it has 4.2.2 out of the box. Probably take them a year to get 4.3.

    Hey why waste time, I mean when a new software is available ,that makes everything else old . I would skip 4.2.2 also and go straight to 4.3 , it really doesn't matter because I'm sure 4.4 is right around the corner so just jump on in when and where you want.

    Yes, but the Google Maps app didn't come until a few months after iOS 6's release, and until then we had to deal with Apple's Maps which were quite bad.

    That's the only time I hated myself for updating my iPhone. I had a jailbreak and had plenty of tweaks, but I upgraded the OS anyway because of all the things they were supposed to be adding to the OS. I regretted that decision for many months.

    Don't really care much for 4.3

    What I'm worried about is that there's a chance this phone won't even get 5.0 and if that happens I'm done with HTC forever

    4.3 has a lot more "under the hood" workings than 4.2.2. 4.2.2 was more of a "visual" refresh with a few new added features but 4.3 has "TRIM" support and is what people should be begging for. AND YES!!! All the features in 4.2.2 will be in 4.3 so don't worry.....

    hTc said that the U.S. versions of the ONE will upgraded to 4.3. They said released to the ONE by the end of September. Now, are they meaning released for the ONE to the carriers by the end of Sept. or released OTA to the ONE by end of Sept? They never really specified as far as I'm concerned. But my take is that it will be released for our ONE's by end of Sept. and after carrier certification, it will be released OTA sometime in October.

    I have been seriously wrong before so don't hold me to it as this is only my opinion and best guess.

    AT&T is absolutely the worst when it comes to updating their Android phones. They didn't release the 4.1.2 update for the GS3 until July 31. By then, the GS3 on all other major U.S. carriers has had the update for 2-3 months. Thankfully, I can't complain about AT&T's coverage and the quality of their LTE service.

    If you do some research you will find that is not true. Samsung, LG, Sony and Motorola are not any faster than HTC with new software updates.

    True, but Apples maps app wasn't all that bad. It got the job done. At least for never it did lol.

    Bottom line, HTC has to get the update out by the end of September now. If they don't, there will be a $*** storm of bad press coming their way from the android press (android central), Tech blogs (engadget). Not only that, their reputation will be damaged (how much I don't know); which they can't afford to let that happen.

    In my opinion, I have a gut feeling that the carriers will have it no later than mid September to test.(trying to be positive).
