How To Update T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 Automatically Over The Air (OTA)

The T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4.2 update has already been rolled out starting March 5 until April 11, 2014. The software update will not be pushed to your phone but you could request for it. Your Note 3 will notify you if it's ready to download the update over the air (OTA).

If you're not sure about the current version of your phone, check the baseband version for you to be sure. Here's how:
  1. From the Home screen, tap the Menu key.
  2. Tap Settings and then More tab.
  3. Look for System manager section and tap About device.
  4. Find the Baseband field.
  5. If you're seeing N900TUVUCNB4 baseband, then your phone is already updated and you don't need to do a thing anymore.
  6. However, if you're seeing N900TUVBMI7 baseband, then you need to take some action to update your Note 3.
Here are the pre-requisites for you to be able to update:
  • You T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 should, at least, have 50% battery left.
  • You must be connected to a stable Wi-Fi network because any interruption during the download may cause the package to become corrupt and you'll face a lot of problems once the update is installed.
  • Your phone must, at least, have 510MB storage left.
If you already receive a notification about an Over-The-Air (OTA) update, follow these steps:
  1. From the Home screen, tap the Menu key.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Tap More tab.
  4. Tap About device.
  5. Tap Software update.
  6. Tap Ok to check for the update.
  7. Follow on-screen instructions.
The Android 4.4.2 KitKat update will bring a lot of goodies for the Galaxy Note 3 not to mention fixing the bugs experienced by many owners with their current firmware. I can't say it's a must-have update but I would strongly recommend you update your phone the soonest time possible.
