Maybe you're new to AT&T? I've been dealing with them for 3 years, at least in terms of Android updates. The one thing I've learned is it's best to forget about upgrades. Sure, you *might* get an upgrade or two or even three, but they will all arrive months after you *think* they should, and there's a good chance that even WITH the long delay, they'll be so bug-filled that you wish you had never received it.
I learned this several times over 3 years. The worst was the one upgrade that was FORCED onto my phone (where I had *no* option to decline) via over-the-air upgrade. That's when I immediately began to suffer what was known as the "sleep of death" where the phone would just enter sleep and not return without a reboot. I missed more than a few calls as well as a bunch of appointment reminders that never came cause the phone died. That version was miserable and I had to take the phone to an AT&T "device store" to have them revert to the previous version.
Now, it's not all doom-and-gloom. They surprised me with version 4.1.2 recently and aside from much shorter battery life, it's actually pretty good.
Bottom line, don't be in a hurry for upgrades with AT&T or you have no chance to be satisfied.

HTC One users on AT&T will get KitKat by end of January if not sooner (rumored by Christmas).
For Samsung owners...
For Samsung/LG owners...
Hope this helps.

I'm running 4.4.2, been on it since last weekend. In KitKat the email itself has improved compared to 4.3, but the email widget seems to be lagging more than before. The most annoying change (for me) is the wi-fi icon color no longer shows whether you actually have internet connectivity or not the way it used to in older versions of Android. AppOps is no longer available in 4.4.2 (first appeared in 4.3). The alarm has improved. Haven't tried ART runtime instead of Dalvik either.
