Galaxy S4 MF3 update not available

I was able to update my S4 to the MF3 version the day it was released OTA. But I've tried to update two other S4s since then and it always says it's up-to-date even though they still have the old MDL version. Any ideas?

Set the date ahead manually.

That's not the problem. I've been checking every day for the past week and every time it says it's up-to-date.

Same issue here I set the date ahead all the way to July 28th and I still cannot get the update. Tried it on WiFi and on the Network. Nothing.

Haven't done factory reset yet, hoping for that to be the last resort

No doubt. I hate doing that myself.

I haven't tried a factory reset, but I really hope I don't have to do that. It's a major pain.

I haven't been able to update either. 

 

Can an AT&T employee please provide some support in this matter?

Yeah, no matter how many days ahead I put it, I still get the same message - software is up to date.

 

I'm not getting mf3 update at all, what gives?

Re: Galaxy S4 MF3 update not available

Same boat here .. still on MDL .. I've changed my dates continously (up to more than 10 days now) and nothing !!! Thinking it may be something to do with my IMEI, I call AT&T and had them lock in my IMEI number to my account. Still did not work. There is not manual update out there to do it ourselfs .. and the most weirdest/stupid thing out there .. if you do a Emergency Firmware Recovery on your phone through KIES .. if pushes MDL !!!! Even Samsung doesn't have access to MF3's update !!!!

 

Come on AT&T, what gives here ?
