    as far as i know you can download OTAs via wifi, thats how i did it. the phone wasn't in airplane mode. it just isn't an active line. so it still talks to sprint. IE "emercangy calls only" I'm assuming sprint can push the phone to download the OTA that way

    Woke up with the update downloaded to my phone this morning. Set up seems to be ok. Strange that I would get it overnight after I Hard reset my phone yesterday evening. Lagging and freezing problems. Haven't reloaded my apps yet. Will see how phone does and then start loading one at a time. Right now phone is working properly. Oh, and I'm in Indianapolis, In.

    Something new I've found along with what's already been posted. Before when I used voice command to set a timer it used the alarm clock function to set an actual alarm. Now it really uses the timer function.

    Got the download overnight last night in Duluth, Minnesota. No major changes just little tweaks. Apps seem to respond a bit faster.

    Just checked my phone about an hour ago and the KitKat download was waiting for me to install. It actually let me there there was a system update to install. Took about 10 minutes to install it then phone rebooted. So far no problems that I can see. Have not really got a chance to look it over. I'm on Sprint in central florida.

    Who has gotten the 4.4 download Sprint has released for the Note 2? Tell us your experience and what's new that you've noticed.
    One of the big changes we got was changing of GPS to Location on the task bar. Its annoying because if you turn on maps and then want to turn on GPS you hit location and it brings you to the location menu which gives you levels of location services (high accuracy/wifi/gps only). This isnt a bother but when you want to turn gps off you cant just click on the location item like you used to with gps because then it turns off your location services and apps that rely on your location to not work. It actually got less intuitive. Sigh...

    Still no download here in the foothills east of Sacramento, CA. I have 4.4 on my 2013 Nexus 7 and Samsung Note 8 and I like the new Google camera. I'm anxious to get the new camera on my phone

    Received it this morning in Lakeland, FL(Central Florida between Orlando and Tampa) but haven't installed it yet. I'm not sure I like the idea of the SD Card being disabled unless I Root my phone. I have a few apps that I moved over to the SD Card like BeyondPod and others that use a lot of storage space for files and, from what I've read, when I switch to KitKat, I'll loose all that and pretty well be stuck using the stock memory. So why do this if I'm going to cut my available memory in half?

    I may be wrong on this belief so, if I am, please do correct me. I really don't know thew ins and outs of the Phone OS

    I've had the update a week now and the battery life is markedly improved. Battery life was great before update but is even better now.

    The way I understand it is that apps can't be moved to the SD card with KitKat 4.4. I have all my photos, music, and documents stored on the SD card now with 4.4 and they work fine. I moved all my apps back to phone storage before I updated to 4.4 and I stll have lots of storage left on my 16g Note 2. Of course I don't have tons of apps on my phone as I eliminated the ones I really didn't use frequently.
