Samsung Galaxy Note 3Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3 4.4.2 KitKat update is another one of those updates that the big red is due to deliver. AT&T and other carrier variants of the device has already got the update in the US, there is obviously no doubt that Samsung has done its job pretty well and that Verizon is sole responsible for this delay.

If you have ever owned a Verizon branded device before, you will probably be already knowing that Verizon doesn’t really like to talk much when it comes to firmware updates. It is a pretty known fact that because of the huge list of bloatware that it introduces, Verizon takes a lot longer in rolling out updates than the its counterparts and the Galaxy Note 3 4.4.2 KitKat update is just the perfect example
of it.

Ever since the AT&T Galaxy Note 3 got updated to 4.4.2 KitKat, many frustrated Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3 owners have started tweeting angry tweets addressed to the big red, but sadly, that has had only a little effect on the big red. We know how incredibly hard it is to reply each and every tweet that they encounter every day, but we can’t imagine Verizon’s PR team being so tight with their schedule that they didn’t even had enough time for replying to even one of the below tweets.

We still don’t know when the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3 users will actually be able to enjoy KitKat on their devices, but for what it is worth, Verizon has typically been releasing firmware updates after about 4-6 weeks of when other carriers roll out their version of updates, so following that logic Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3 users should expect KitKat update in either early or mid April.

We will obviously keep updating the story in case Verizon opens up, but in the meanwhile we would love to hear from all the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 users about the delay and frustrated they have become waiting for the 4.4.2 KitKat update.


  1. Once again, Verizon had lived up to its reputation at being last, though this doesn’t surprise me one bit. I truly hate Verizon for not even updating now after all the major carriers have finished releasing KitKat.

    Could they at least stop giving us the same bull**** answers and be honest if they’re even making an effort to work on KitKat or not? At this point, that’s all I want. I want a genuine, brutally honest response. I think all the issues that have happened have been addressed for the most part (except SD card issues and potential incompatible third party S-view covers).

    If they can’t deliver what their customers want so much, then they could oblige at least that. Otherwise, their loyalty to their customers will be nothing more than a joke.

    I know this is small for a lot of people, but it really is a continuous issue and it hasn’t gotten any better hardly. Maybe once in a blue moon with all the stars aligned and the hammer of Thor touches the earth, Verizon updates timely, and even more rarely, the first.

    And comparing my jelly bean Note 3 to the other KitKat ones is like comparing a girl whose parents only paid for her to wear casual clothes opposed to the majority of those whose parents could afford a beautiful dress to the prom. Lame comparison I know and I’m probably going to be laughed at in this comment or people might rip me a new one for it. And that’s fine because I’ve got a “Charlie Brown ghost ass”(AVGN) xD.

    But to sum this up: Verizon, don’t be the cheapskate parents that I mentioned above. It’s practically an embarrassment and I’m almost ashamed to be on this carrier because of this.

    I doubt that any Verizon rep or someone higher up is paying attention to this, but if they are, I hope they take these words to heart.

    However, I’m willing to bet by the time Verizon releases the update, the next version of Android will be released and then the cycle will start all over. If they release the update sooner than that, I will be shocked. If it’s how I predicted, I will laugh and say “called it”

  2. I think Verizon should just skip KitKat 4.4.2 and wait for Android 4.5.0 which is supposed to be released sometime this summer.
