    Download Samsung Kies and you'll be able to update from your PC.

    Eh... done that, neither Vodafone or Samsung will tell me when the Lollipop update will be released, I'd like the latest Android OS but I don't fancy putting on a pirate version. Does anyone from Vodafone or Samsung know when the official version of Lollipop will be available for the Galaxy Note 3.

    Vodafone Galaxy Note 3 contract phone!

    Kies IS the official release, it isn't "pirate".

    Firmware for Samsung SM-N9005 - SamMobile

    ^ There's your official releases for your phone. Looks like 5.0 was released a couple days ago on that site.

    Samsung's support page for your phone:
    Samsung Galaxy Note 3 | 5.7 HD Screen & 13MP Camera | White
    See how they have a link to download Kies? Are you convinced yet?

    I had been checking Sammobile a long time for my unlocked ex Amazon UK Note 3. I just sold it, but it's been out for Three and Vodafone UK for a while.
    You can check if you have the official Vodafone version.

    I do. But both Vodafone and Samsung have said neither are responsible for delivering the software update for Lollipop to my phone. Despite the fact it's a contract with Vodafone.

    This is all I know. I am just a member here and don't know anyone with a Vodafone version.

    added : this normally lets you know if it has been officially released for OTA or Kies/Smart Switch.

    I don't think there is anyone here good enough to help you further. You could compare your CSC code in *#1234# with a Vodafone and unlocked (still on 4.4) version on Sammobile, but I think you can figure that yourself. Good luck.

    On Edit : if you paid through Carphone Warehouse they would probably have given you an unlocked device. Even networks sometimes do that when short of stock.
