    Forget Kies, since I already tried yesterday to get the updated firmware. If you had pushed the date out (over one month), I highly suggest you manually update it. Peaches did you try what I had explained to you?

    jpark when you are a new person to cells, sometimes reading something and following it is impossible at best. I would love to update manually but the file is no longer on xda site as it was removed from its dropbox location.

    Apple can update 20M phones in an hour ... this is either poor business practice or poor technology. If on Wifi has nothing to do with the tower...

    Everyone isn't on WiFi and Droids have what iphones didn't, LTE, much better than any WiFi.

    Might want to give Sammy live chat a try while you are waiting that 3700 hours (sorry!) wouldn't hurt.

    Wow..how hateful.

    Guess you got lucky.

    Wonder if all the date pushers and early updaters are why my LTE has been EDGE for the last hour? MAJOR unusual traffic here.

    No offense but you are not being honest, just vindictive due to being made fun of. I am going to wait. Keep pushing your little date. You might get to the year 2020! LOL.

    I'm so happy for you Peaches. After reading your post, it seems like you copy the file right into your phone. You should have renamed it on your computer than transferred it. I think after you installed it, the process seem so simple. I'm super happy you got it.

    As for Soap4Me, I hope that UCQuality can send you the file. Or you can try to search google for the file name and hopefully it will show up and you can be updated.

    I'm still here checking to make sure no one else have issues with the manual update. Let me know if you have problems, but the earlier post should have been self explainatory.

    Kelly:
    You are very defensive, do you work for AT&T? I really don't understand why AT&T has anything to do with these updates. There is absolutely no technical reason that they need to stagger other than poor provisioning of update servers. My point is that many people, like Apple and Verizon can handle much larger updates. AT&T has chosen to use this poor method when there are much faster ways to do this . Has nothing to do with the network if I'm updating over WiFI.

    Nope don't work for AT&T. Most that are in LTE areas will update LTE, it's about double the speed of wifi.

    Sorry, addressing your post isn't defensive. What do you think AT&T gets out of staggering updates besides being overrun with calls, which they have been.
    No reason to stagger upgrades for no reason and since yesterday, I have been bumped to EDGE several times and that had never happened before, started yesterday.

    I tried both Kies and the date forwarding trick and both has not worked for me.
    Last time I tired to update, it said I have to wait 1500+ hours

    Kelly I really love all your posts, honestly. Sonic is right on one thing. ATandT could have handled this much better than they did. They could have put it ONLINE and all could have downloaded leaving their network free. My daughter also defends ATandT. I have been with Sprint as well as ATandT and they handle updates much more efficiently. They PUSH to phones with no timer crap programs. ATandT told me they are being overrun with calls anyway now due to customers complaining about how they handled this minor update. In the long run they saved nothing but rather gave all a big headache.

    First off, kudos to Kelly for all the terrific help. I spoke to AT&T the person transferred me to Samsung. The Samsung agent transferred me to Samsung Tier2 Tech and then to ECR.
    The update was pushed out by Google, not AT&T and not Samsung. The distribution of the update is a Google thing...they have access to the networks. The timer thing is AT&T' genius. ALSO I was told that there is software on the phone that is active annd they can upgrade it at will without notifing the owner of the device. You will get a red and gray arrow next to the att icon and in notifications it will say connecting to a DM server.
    Lastly Kelly and several other seasoned Forum Members cautioned everyon about playing games with the update software timer. No one should be defensive with Kelly or anyone else on the forum. The Onus belongs to AT&T, Samsung and Google. They could yave just as easily offered a preliminary statement about the upgrade and how to deal with It.
