More leaked documents show KitKat coming Wednesday to U.S. Cellular's Samsung Galaxy Note 3
On Monday, we told you that a leaked memo revealed that U.S. Cellular subscribers with the Samsung Galaxy S4 would start receiving their KitKat update on Wednesday. And now, some more leaked documents show that the carrier's Galaxy S4 owners will be joined by those U.S. Cellular subscribers sporting the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. As with the Samsung Galaxy S4 update, KitKat will be pushed out to the phablet in waves. That means that not every U.S. Cellular Galaxy Note 3 owner will be receiving Android 4.4 at the same time.                       

U.S. Cellular said on Monday that it would be 100% complete with the update to the Samsung Galaxy S4 after 10 days. The update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will also take 10 days to complete. In addition to adding Android 4.4, the update removes Daily Perks and MobiTiles from the OS, where they both were pre-loaded. Those interested in keeping the two apps will have to download and install them from the Google Play Store.

To make sure that you don't miss the opportunity to update your phone or phablet, make sure that you're currently using the most current version of the OS, and have a valid Google account. Or, you can pop into your local U.S. Cellular store and they can help get you squared away with the update starting tomorrow.
