Good luck getting an answer to this. I'm starting to dislike Verizon for it's lack of allowance. Most other carriers have posted the update, most other carriers have unlocked bootloaders for this device. Verizon is a control freak. The other thing that ***** is that you could gett he update via KIES but KIES does not support the Note II.

From all interactions with Verizon, and reading support feedback. They don't care if you get the update or not. You are still paying the phone bill, your phone works and you can still make calls and check email. Device security clearly isn't a concern. Android 4.1.2 has many security flaws and providing a patch or means to protect the customer is not important to them.

This is why the note 2 will be the last android phone I own.

Fixius so if Verizon was hands off with the update and it was pushed off if your phone bricks who would you blame? This is why US carriers have their own approval process because they'd be blamed for something they have no control over. Think about it and think about Europe and who they blame. You'll see something interesting.

Verizon, where is the Android 4.3 update for my Galaxy Note II?  I dished out full price, $700, for my phone, and have not received an update.  I read that it was supposed to come on 11/29.  I've checked several times each day but found no update.  If I can't get an update there's no reason to stick with Verizon anymore.

It becomes the responsibility of the vendor as it should be. Not the provider of the phone service. The vendor/manufacturer should be taking the responsibility as it's a custom distribution of the android os. US carriers sticking their noses into the distributions and forcing the installation of bloatware makes them partly responsible, but that's also part of the problem.

We all know full and well that doesn't happen. People flash that 2 year contract and say expletives.

T-Mobile with the Nexus 4 and 5 are prime examples. Doesn't matter if carriers are hands off or hands off. If they get blamed either way might as well test it right?

Customers already set the bar of how things were going to be done when Android was adopted. When the G1 came out and T-Mobile was hands off. The MyTouch T-Mobile was hands off. The Cliq when Motorola said they were waiting for drivers for the GPU and T-Mobile was sued for taking too lobg and they were hands off. T-Mobile got sued for the Behold II just because Samsung said it could get 2.0(could being the keyword) and later on recanted. In Europe these same devices they blamed HTC, and Samsung and not their respective carriers.

We can go on and on about this, but techies majority would know better, but the majority are not techies.
