    Hi I recently obtained an AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with Android 4.3. I use T-Mobile and tried updating the phone and it said no update available and that I was using the latest firmware. Because I'm using a T-Mobile sim does this mean I cannot upgrade to 4.4, and if so is there a way to upgrade my phone to 4.4? Without rooting if possible, if I have to root or doing something extra can you link or show me steps on how to do do? Thank you.

    Have you tried Kies 3 on your PC? Sometimes when there is no OTA (Over The Air) update from the phone there is an update via Kies.

    Kies 3 can be downloaded free from Samsung, here is the US site :

    I second Kies 3. It updates phones that are even rooted that OTA won't touch.

    How is it not working, does it connect to your device at all?

    In my experience the Note 3 was so much better on Jelly Bean and I regret updating to Kit Kat. I recently updated using Kies and it destroyed my previously awesome battery life and gives me 2-3 random reboots per day. This phone was a dream on Jelly Bean but once you update their is no way back.

    I hope the same thing doesn't happen to the Note 4 when L gets released.
