I checked. Not yet, but since we have the Active variant, I expect for it to come out within the next few hours or days.

I agree.  I got 4.4.4 the same day as the GS5 so crossing my fingers.

It's possible that AT&T might be releasing the update in stages, so check over the next few days to see.

Lets hope so. Did anyone check for updates using the software update option? I unfortunatley tried it yesterday around 6:30 pm so i have another 3 hours before i can check for it again.

 I have tried the Software Updates check and nothing yet.  Also instead of waiting 3 hours you can just set your date forward manually to check again.

Wait, how can you change the wait time on the phone. I have to wait 24 hours before I'm able to check again without changing the date.

Just manually advance the date a day at a time.   You'll end up having to keep pushing it out but it does work.

It doesn't appear to have been released yet for our device.  Hopefully soon.  Maybe we're getting 5.0.1 😉
