Sorry if this has been discussed to death on here before, but has anyone got a clue when Vodafone will release the 4.3 update for the S4?

I see Telecom and 2 Degrees have had it released for some time now.

My wife has an S3 on Vodafone and she has 4.3 (go figure!).

Maybe they've forgotten? Been a while now since Vodafone NZ approved it.

They don't forget it just takes time and sometimes they come back and say we are no longer going to release 4.3 as 4.4 will be ready soon (Not saying it's this just an example of what can happen)

Seeing it's taking so long for this to come out, I'd say that this is the likely scenario... so another 6 months it is then!!

4.4.2 for the i9506 is listed on the release schedule from Samsung for end of Q1, so most likely we will skip 4.3.

Yep, my fault for believing Samsung's own release schedule, kitkat for the S4 in 2014 quarter 1 they said......
