    i guess if updates are important to you, the only real option is google nexus. i thought when i bought a top of the line device that i would get regular updates. i thought it was just a freak thing when i had my thunderbolt and we were one of the last phones to get ICS, and it didnt come until my contract was either up or just about up(cant remember exactly)

    but thats why im rooted and unlocked

    Nothing here in Dallas, TX yet, but I'm concerned whether the features in the update will be worth the risk of any issues the update will bring, like poorer battery life.

    Maybe I'll wait to see what the masses think after a week or so.

    From what I understand none of the note 3 functions will come with the update. You're better off rooting and unlocking and using skynote 4.3. It is perfect

    it should be your way soon dude, I'm in Dayton, Ohio. can't be far.
    I don't think the update is by region....I mean I definitely should have it by now if ur in dayton. Plus my phone number is actually from Findlay, Ohio which is even closer to where I currently am in Toledo.

    Talked to Verizon today and they said the update started rolling out Friday and that the last one took about two weeks but he would be surprised if it took me that long to get mine. Hoping that's true

    The Stickies here Verizon Galaxy Note 2 Rooting, ROMs, & Hacks - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com are good place to read through as a starting point.

    If you just want the 4.3 update then suggest waiting until VZW releases it. Custom ROMs are an awesome thing, but think its wise to understand what you're getting into if you go that path.

    Fwiw if you aren't already rooted and unlocked and you think you may want to. Now is the time. Once you receive ota there is no guarantee you'll ever be able to root and unlock your phone again

    But yes, do research before rooting and unlocking and know you could brick your phone and no one will be responsible other than you

    It takes you 15 minutes to lock on to GPS? I think you may have a dud. Mine doesn't take that long at all. Maybe a minute at the most.
    i know of 3 phones with the problem.

    we all knew that Verizon takes forever for updates so why do you guys always kill yourselves for the updates that don't come on time?

    FYI, for those who may not know, once a software update goes live Verizon will update the Note 2's status page here (see the Benefits of Software Upgrade pdf):

    Software Update: Galaxy Note® II by Samsung | Verizon Wireless

    As of today (12-3-13), it still has the last OTA update information for 4.1.2.

    This is true. I was just wondering what is actually doing ti be in the update. And this is probably the only place I can trust to find out.

    And this to me is a problem that Google faces. To many devices with different versions of their os. Any device within two years of an os release should qualify and all should be done within four weeks

    I only want it to have stock os and then root to remove bloat.
