    Just did a get updates from AT&T.
    And got the update to 4.3.
    We'll see how it goes as the apps update.
    So far so good.
    Battery life seems to have suffered just feels like not as good.
    And home button doesn't seem to respond as it used to.

    Why did they get rid of the hide/show hidden app feature!?!?!?!? Anyone know how to hide apps? What they replaced it with was disable/uninstall feature it seems. Which does help.

    OTA's go out in waves. They can't roll these out to everyone at one time. You'll get it soon.

    Yeah I get that, but people started getting in Dec...it's no Feb. It shouldn't take that long to implement. It never has before...

    Still waiting for this - tried checking for an update today but nothing, again. Am I the only one without 4.2?

    I was going to recommend to do it manually over Kies but I don't see it on SamMobile yet. Sorry can't be of much help. I root my phones and never update via OTA

    Still didn't get it? That sucks.

    At least Kitkat is coming soon.

    I have 4.3 and hate it. Hate it hate it hate it.

    My lovely Note 2 went from silky smooth and great, stable performance to an unstable, laggy POS.

    Am seriously wondering if I can "root" it and put it back to whatever it was before?

    I'd root it :D. You can get a smoother stock 4.3 ROM.

    Or flash a 4.4.2 Kitkat ROM (no Samsung bloat/Touchwiz)

    Or wait for the official OTA/4.4.2 TW/Kitkat that should be coming soon

    Just got mine today. It updated to 4.4.2. Haven't seen anything different except beats audio was added and the status bar is now transparent. I wish we would have gotten air command like the note 3 has.

    Had my 4.3 update a couple of
    Months ago, i also found the phone had changed somewhat to how I had grown accustomed to,
    I was also initially unhappy with the changes, but after going through all of the settings on the phone, I found quite a few settings that had been reset to factory default as if new.
    After a bit of tuning up so too speak, I am now very happy with my magnificent note two again.
    So on that note (excuse the pun) , after any future updates I would be having a bit of a look at the phone settings, and thatwould be for any brand of phone after an update.
