I'm in North Carolina just did a manual update and it is updating as we speak. but it is like at a snails pace cut in half lol


Same here, in the Charlotte area.  I just want this slow d/l to STOP, but it won't let me.  How can I effectively put a STOP to this, or can I refuse to install it after it finally finsihes its slow d/l?

Frustrating.

Re: Galaxy S4 - 4.3 Update

The inconsistent wifi problem is very very annoying. What makes it worse is when watching YouTube in landscape you cant tell when the wifi drops. I think we all know what HD youtube videos can do to your data plan... Now I have to worry about my data even while on wifi!! And who knows how long it's gonna take for the next update to fix this. Any Android device that's not a Nexus or Google Edition has an absolutely atrocious update process.

Re: Galaxy S4 - 4.3 Update

I just turned off the Auto Network Switch. Hopefully that will fix the issue. I guess At&t decided it would be best to remove the Mobile Data toggle and turn on the Auto network switch feature to increase consumer data.

Re: Galaxy S4 - 4.3 Update

A few weeks ago I attempted to download the android 4.3 update and the download failed and since then the phone says the software is up to date (even though it is still 4.2.2) and is says I have to wait 8250 hours (yes that's what is says) to check for update. How can I rectify this situation? !

Re: Galaxy S4 - 4.3 Update

Did the same thing for weeks.
Above you will find a post by the community specialist for Att...you will have to follow the instructions and wait about 24 hours then they will email you and ask if they can call you today...they right not call but will manually push the update to you. Works perfect but won't download until you have WiFi.signal....if you don't do it that way you will never get it

Re: Galaxy S4 - 4.3 Update

  Man this sounds like a nightmare.  Reminds me of when a bunch of us were trying to get an update for our Samsung Infuse.  AT&T  released then froze it and kept pushing it back.  We finally did a manual update with some other software app, kind of like a manual install after someone found the rom.

 

It was kind of like a hack I think cus it wasn't an official version but worked fine.  Within a couple weeks AT&T released their official verson through kies.

 

By the way, why did they disable updating through Kies?

Galaxy S4 - Loss of Mobile Data Toggle with 4.3 Update

I'm pretty upset I lost the Mobile Data toggle in the 4.3 update. That was the toggle I used most in the quick settings. Fix it please! I don't know why they would remove such a useful feature.

Re: Galaxy S4 - Loss of Mobile Data Toggle with 4.3 Update

Any new news? I'm still showing "continue update" is grayed out and when I hit "check for updates" says "up to date" even thought I'm on 4.2.2

Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 Update

I've been unable to get the Android 4.3 update for my Galaxt S4. I tried the software update in Settings and it will not pull down. I've tried changing the date, month and year to see if that would affect the availability, but it would still not pull down. 

 

After reading on the forums that AT&T support can pushed down the update, I requested via online/chat support. The agent said they could not do it and for me to call Samsung. I called Samsung and they sent me back to AT&T.

 

Is there anyway to have someone at AT&T push down the update to me? Or is there an option to download the new Android version and install it through KIES?

 

 

This is very frustrating and as I never had these problems with updating iOS versions on my Iphones. I was able to update iOS myself, have the AT&T store reps do it or someone at a Genius Bar do it.
