Hi Everyone, [read: vodafone technicians]

Is there an eta for 4.3 for your newly released I9506? I have looked online and done a fair amount of research on this fantastic wee phone, but can't see a roadmap anywhere for 4.3 rollout plans. (Or anyone else asking on this/any NZ websites.)

On a side note, it's utterly staggering Samsung chose a 1 year old firmware version to release a brand new Snapdragon 800 chip!

I can see according to it's been released in France (Orange) but nowhere else, keen to see if it's hit the testing tables of the Vodafone tech's here in NZ yet.

To be honest I'm kinda hoping they don't release 4.3 for it, and just go straight to 4.4, but yeah, when I bought it and checked the software I felt really gypped to see 4.2.2. 

Anyone else have the phone and have any thoughts?

I also can't use LTE cause I am on a grandfathered plan, and cause Vodafone have chosen to NOT roll out LTE to their loyal customers, I have to wait 'til I change plans. But that's just something I have to live with.
