AT&T Note 8.0 Update?

AT&T Note 8.0 Update?

Where is the update to 4.2.2?  Everyone I know that has the wifi version recieved their update months ago and here I am with an AT&T note 8.0 still waiting.  Don't make me regret buying the AT&T version.  My main concern is the screen becoming unresponsive at times which is a known issue with 4.1.2 and is fixed with the update so it would be nice to get that update ASAP AT&T and don't tell me you know nothing because that is B&S.

Will we be getting 4.2.2 or something better like 4.3 or 4.4?  The silence is killing us, AT&T.

Good luck in getting a responce from anyone here at AT&T .. you'll get the same ** as they post in ALL the threads:

 

"There were no announcements yet, when we hear anything, we'll make sure to post an update on these forums."

 

Loyal customer here since 1994 .. and I am starting to get real tired of ALL of AT&T's B/S .. there support has gone since they took it back from Cingular.

 

If AT&T wants to keep up-to-date in regards to the latest, greatest smartphones

I'm also waiting on updates for my Galaxy Note 8.0 and also my Galaxy Note 2 (which was promised by AT&T on November 20th !!!).

Re: Will Note 8 receive KitKat?

Hello, pebersohn!

 

Thanks for posting. As of right now, the manufacturer has not made any announcements about upcoming software updates for this device on our network; there is no confirmed date at this time.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns!

Re: Will Note 8 receive KitKat?

That is lie, the Note 8.0 is still at 4.1 and is still waiting for 4.2.2 and that has already rolled out to NON AT&T Note 8.0 so what you are saying is a lie.  We have been asking for months now about 4.2.2 and not a word from you and now something and its a lie.  You guys are about to lose a long time AT&T sub.

Note 8.0 Update, Hello AT&T

I have been nice and so has everyone else that has asked.  But now it gets nasty.  I spend a lot of money with AT&T and I have a whole lot of friends that do as well and I also have some that have been thinking about coming over to AT&T.  

 

The note 8.0 with 4.1 has a game killing bug where the screen becomes completely unresponsive for seconds at a time which is a giant bug that needed to be fixed.  That was fixed in the update to 4.2.2 which we have never recieved.

 

That Said.

 

I have asked and many others as well when we will recieve an update that has already realesed on every note 8.0 in the world  BUT AT&T but yet I have got not ONE response.  AT&T has 48 hours to responde to this or I will post my expiernce on every blog and social media site I belong to and some I don't and trust me I will be heard.  I want an answer and I want one now, either the note 8.0 from AT&T will recieve the update or it won't now how about an answer AT&T?

This is ridiculous. Come on AT&T, you want happy customers you need to get on top of the software updates.

Now we discover our device is vulnerable to a heatbleed attack that has been a known vulnerability.  I use this device at work.  My use as a teacher should be secure and now I find it may not be.  Surely AT&T recognizes their responsibility to their customers to provide security updates.

You misunderstand - it affects websites that are using the OpenSSL cryptographic software library
