can i not get the updte using a different simcard?
Overall, I have enjoyed using the device. It's a great telephone, except for my ear activating assorted apps during calls. There have been issues with battery usage and I've had varying degrees of success with various system settings and 3rd party apps.
Since upgrading to at&t's allowed Android 4.1.2, the unit seems much more stable, and power usage is better. Also, I've had regular issues with uncommanded shutdowns and reboots, with NONE since upgrading the OS. BTW, the upgrade was NOT pushed to me over the air. I did it manually through the OS menu.
Kies is quite another story. It works about 1 time in 20 that I attempt it. I only attempt to use Kies when prompted to by Samsung, AT&T or some user site solution. Normally, owing to Kies' lack of stability, I use one of many available 3rd party (free) file management apps, or just the Windows driver via Windows Explorer when plugged in via usb.
I have not rooted, though have been tempted to, to rid the unit of useless, expensive (if accidentally selected/auto-enabled) and cumbersome at&t crapware; as well as wanting to try a more true Android interface over Samsung's shell/UI.
I have installed since day one a 64GB micrso SDHC card, which has been used for many apps, all audio/video media, data back-ups, etc., so storage space is certainly adequate.
I switch between Go, Google and Swiftkey keyboards for text input, and also much appreciate the accurate voice-to-text input.
The bluetooth works fine for audio streaming and hands-free in various vehicles, but even with 3rd party apps I haven't been successful in getting the phonebook synced or transferred to my VW Auto Group vehicle. The screen is bright, clear and great for playing videos/films in the wee cramped economy airplane "seat". Laterz.
