    Thanks Bobby. I've not seen any of those issues, which means one thing - something will break. :banghead:

    I've got to wonder what the heck is taking T-Mobile so long to issue an update? Okay that version is damn near perfect but not really. We have that weird "Insert name of app" has stopped working thing that freezes the device until you respond and on mine at least the Samsung Music Player has stopped working completely and last but nit least there's the annoying prevention message issue. I actually need some of my bloatware repaired meanwhile you guys get even more.

    I've owned four different SAMSUNG devices over the course of the past 15-18 months & Auto brightness is seriously flawed on all of them,w/the screen so dim w/this turned on it renders the devices unusable.

    Other than this & S-Voice,most everything works fairly well on the T-Mobile GN3.Not in any hurry to get an update.

    Yeah my T-Mobile note 3 is working great with everything so far. So glad I'm not still on Verizon. Hate their forced bloatware they always push out. Although I hate some of this T-mobile stuff also that I can't disable.

    Loading the OTA update now. I've had none of the reported issues so far so I'll report back as soon as I notice any changes.

    I find I am dropping more calls with this update. Almost like when it switches towers I lose the call.

    I am not rooted, I go into my Settings > Apps > choose the app, uninstall updates and turn off the app, you can do this for most of the bloatware.

    I posted the FoxFi fix in that thread. Check it out, it's working great for me.

    As for the 'connectivity' fix, I think this update my my phone worse when it comes to getting a signal! I was at a Christmas concert with my wife last night. She has a Virgin Mobile cheapy phone that's on Sprints network. I'm sitting right next to her and I have no friggin signal!!! She does! W T H! If it's like this, I'm DEFINATLEY going back to the other 'update'! I will not tolerate a crap signal, not for what I pay a month compared with her!!! Anyone else having horrible signal??

    I'm very happy with my T-Mobile Note 3.

    The annoying KNOX Shield warning dialog that once was triggered by Wi-Fi suddenly stopped appearing. I have no idea why, nor did I realize Android 4.4 was self repairing. :D

    Once you have updated on retail, there is no way to go back to a previous build.

    Attempting to flash an older build thru odin will just brick your phone, dont try it.
