    No update here in SE Florida. North of West Palm Beach. Phone not rooted or anything. Patiently waiting for OTA. Hopefully this fixes WIFI in and out issues since 4.3 update. Kind of annoying, says Internet connection to slow, disabled.

    Did the manual upgrade tonight. I had quite a few apps deleted, but will install as I need them. After the second restart had quite a few messages saying Messenger has stopped. Is there any way I can remove Messenger since I don't use it, I use Google Voice, which was one of the apps I had to re-install.

    I like Google Voice because I can then access my texts on any device.

    UPDATE: I ended up having to do a factory reset because the "Unfortunately Messenger has stopped" message kept coming up. Restoring all my apps now. Hopefully won't have any issues tomorrow.

    You can get the update manually without waiting.

    Download it here: http://android.clients.google.com/pa...Update_FWD.zip

    That is the exact link and file the the phone gets via OTA.

    Put it on you SD card, then boot into recovery. When the phone is powered off, hold down vol+, home, and power and keep holding them down. The phone boots up and you'll see the galaxy s4 logo and in small text at the top it says booting into recovery. Then let go of the power button but keep holding down vol+ and home until you get to a recovery menu. Use the vol keys to scroll through the options and the power button to chose an option. You should see an option for update via SD card and then chose the zip file.

    After the phone updates and boots up again, do one more reboot.


    NOTE: That is the OTA link for the Sprint GS4s that don't have the new tri-band radios.
    Thank you....since I am not very knowledgeable about doing it that way, I am paranoid that I will mess it up. I will just wait for it OTA. Thank you for sharing it for others who are braver than I though. LOL

    I performed the manual update last night as well and only noticed the organization of my apps were all screwed up. Other than that there has been no noticeable problems.

    I am happy now that when I hit the back button to exit out of an app that the folder it was opened from closes again.

    Again, location has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with getting an update. One person could get it in your location, and another may not get it for weeks or months.

    Went ahead and manually upgraded. Lost more than a dozen apps.

    They all reinstalled ok except for DoubleTwist. It can't find the MicroSD card. Uninstalling and installing didn't help. Syncing it with my iMac worked fine. The app still can't see my MicroSD card.

    Come on DoubleTwist, get your act together.

    Apparently most don't, because most of the posts seem to have to mention where they aren't getting the update...

    Does it matter if they say where they are from?

    If you're going to push manually, remember you'll need either a small microSD card (2GB or 4GB) or a small partition. I tried it on my 32GB card but the recovery menu couldn't read a partition that big. Tried again with a 2GB card and that worked just fine.

    My 32GB microSD card worked fine. What message were you getting that told you it was too big to read?

    No message, the system couldn't see any files on the card. I could browse the files fine with the phone booted up, but recovery didn't see any files on it at all. Worked fine with the 2GB card, figured that was the issue.

    Just got KitKat OTA last night. Seems a bit smoother. Many of my apps disapeared, but a LOT of the junkware that was installed on the phone from Sprint is now gone too! So, I just reloaded the apps I wanted and it's all good to go. No other "issues" thus far.

    I feel the same way about going thru all that trouble.But on the gds3 there was an easier way to do the update just remember it.

    Ok, I installed the update even though I said I was going to wait it out until I hear if there was any bugs etc. So far so good! No issues. And no apps were missing! Loving it thus far!

    I have found one bug so far: When talking on the phone, the proximity between my chin and the phone activates the speakerphone. This was quite a surprise the first time it happened, and it has happened consistently since as long as the screen is on. If the screen is off, it appears to be OK. After I manually upgraded I did a factory data reset, so the phone is more or less a clean stock kitkat install.

    anyone else seeing this issue? I suppose a workaround would be to turn off the proximity monitoring when a call is being made, which is in settings. This is new, I never had this issue before today.

    Do you perhaps have a chin like Jay Leno?
