    Just got an ATT S4 yesterday, and tonight I noticed it's downloading an OTA update. Seems like it's taking a while ~45 minutes or so. The phone is not locked up, and I seem to have both wifi and network traffic, but I can't believe the update takes that long. Any comments/advice?

    Its going to depend on the speed of your network and the size of the update.

    If you try to browse the internet, does it connect?

    If you tap on the download, it will usually tell you the update size. If it's over ~300MB (ROM update), it'll be a while.

    Thanks gang. It never would tell me the DL size or status, just "Downloading update. Please do...." and the rest was off the screen. I gave up and went to bed and this morning it's downloaded and I just started the install. Seems to be working. I was just worried it was hung up somewhere.
