Will Verizon be the last to get the KitKat update?

Member

Well I really hope and pray the Galaxy S4 KitKat Update comes soon

I just did an FDR to my S4 as I've seen other Carriers of the S4 are getting the update and I don't want any problems.

I just hope the S4 isn't going to take as long as the other Flagship phone did (Droid Bionic)

Please Please I beg you Verizon bring the KitKat update to the Galaxy S4 very soon.

Well I will ask a "Question" - Are we going to be the last as I keep reading "Verizon Galaxy Lineup will be the last to get KitKat Update"

Please tell me No - Sorry I'm asking hard, but I waited forever with the Bionic

Samsung has staggered the update release for all the S4 models. It has releasing the update on the US variants this week. It shouldn't be too much longer.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Ann154 I sure hope you right (I do think you are Smiley Happy  )

I've been a customer for a very very long time (PowerTel then Alltel - I could get straight answers from them)

I've been scared after what was done and how long with the Bionic (The Bionic was a fast and good phone and I still don't understand why Verizon didn't like it (All I could get from them is to change phones - Oh and your plan will change)

Thank you for the reply Smiley Happy

You won't get many straight answers from VZW as I have ask the same question to 3 maybe 4 different people at VZW and have got 3 to 4 different answers.

VZW you have to be very beware of the answers you get.  You are best to see what other users experience is and then take your chances with your action.

You are SPOT ON with that statement.  I am not really that upset with being last but more upset with VZW adding the enormous amount of bloat and even some removal of features being looked forward to in the update and not even explaining why.  If there is a good reason it is one thing but they don't even tell us why.

Its all about dollars and increasing their bottom line.  VZW will eliminate a feature from Android and then resell that feature with one of their own applications which you pay for on a monthly basis, there by increasing their revenue stream.  Look no farther than the features removed from 4.2.2 the given back with minor updates and 4.3 because of customer pressure.

Pretty sad that Verizon is the last carrier to give us the 4.4 update, if at all.
