My wi-fi works fine everywhere after the update. My work uses 802.1x EAP too. My home, just a regular WPA2 network.

Not sure why, I just can't seem to get this update. Just keeps saying I'm up to date check again in 48 hours. Just checked a few minutes ago. I keep having to change the date on my phone so I can check again. Anybody else not getting this to update still?

Looks like I spoke too soon. I start the download, and then it asks to restart the device, and updates to 25%, and then quits and restarts the phone with an error MSG that it could not install the update.

Who knows. All Samsung can say was 'soon' according to Mobile Syrup back in November. I have a Telus Note 2 and waiting for it as well.

Default issue with emails keeploading now

my wifi is fine but I cannot stop older already read emails from reloading.
my badge on my email will say I got 5 new emails in and when I check they are old emails I al
ready read and they are at the bottom of my emails. Then I would push a sync and the emails will dissapear and then reappear a while later.
Everything was good before the update.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I'm in Missouri, guess I have to keep waiting? At what point should we say maybe there is some other reason were not getting the update? This is my first Android phone, the update process sure could use some work.

Maybe only some part of cali got the update. I was able to update yesterday and I lived in the central valley.

LOL. Yeah, got the phone for it as well. It's great on the Note 10.1 (even though the apps are more limited), just wish it was on the Note 2 already. I hate myself for not checking the Note 2 model at the Samsung booth a few months ago. It was on the Bell network but with multiview enabled. It actually worked well in portrait mode. I can only surmise now that it was probably an unlocked international Note 2 they were flaunting, but not letting anyone know.

Hate it when they market something that obviously isn't even available yet, especially when I was playing with it at the booth.

Did the manual update. That went well despite the fact it wiped my phone.

All seems to be working on my phone except....

Chrome. The Samsung Keyboard stops working every time I use Chrome. I get a crash screen come up every time. I am wondering if this is an ill side-effect of the file I used to upgrade this phone manually.

Anyone else who updated their phone using the file mentioned in this thread want to try out Chrome with the standard keyboard to see if it crashes as well and report back?

For those who still haven't gotten the update, have you tried checking for the update in Kies? I know this is an OTA update but perhaps it might also be available in Kies as well. Just a thought

I've been checking Kies everyday since Dec 27th when it was announced, & last checked 11pm CST last night.

I'm located in SD on AT&T & nothing here yet. I have checked for an OTA a few times but don't want to rack up hours of waiting that way.

I just want my stinkin update

Samsung locked portrait mode for homescreen with their TW launcher. I don't think they'll change that anytime soon. I've been using Nova Launcher since my first day with the Note 2. I never liked TW since using it on the Note with GB/ICS.

Wish the update would come already.

Angry Still no update...

I'm still waiting for the OTA update from AT&T. I called them a couple weeks ago, and they basically said they are rolling it out via a list or something, and I'll get it when I get it. They would not even provide an upper bound. I complained further, and the supervisor basically told me that AT&T is giving this update out of the goodness of their hearts, and there is no business reason to do so... that comment was well received, believe me. I told him it was false advertising to show a phone on TV using multi-window, and then not support it. He didn't care for that argument. He said people who buy it now get the update. I said why can someone release a game on iTunes and have a million downloads by the next day, but AT&T can't roll out an update in less than weeks... also no good response.

Anyway, is there anyone else yet who has not gotten the update, or I am the only one? I read about some people restoring their phone to factory reset, and then getting the update. I'd really rather not do that if I don't need to.

Has anyone figured out another way to get the update?

Thanks.
