    • Cam Bunton

      • mueller2051

        yea it appears so. i know it was there this morning

        • Verizonthunder

          Dang it T-Mobile please do not treat this smartphone like you did with the Sony Xperia Z

        • kevev

          Still waiting on my Z’s update to 4.4 -_-

        • Verizonthunder

          I know because a friend of mine has the Sony Xperia Z and ask me if any news on software update I tell him every time sadly no.

        • Jay Holm

          Sony just isn’t ready for primetime, they just aren’t. Their flagship still isn’t available on all carriers like Samsung, HTC, and LG’s are.

        • Verizonthunder

          It’s been ready for prime time it’s once again the carriers fault for dropping the ball on software updates

  • Straight G Flexing

    Nope apprerently it dissapeared, idk why i checked the lg suite and nothing, went through the update center nothing

  • sg

    It’s 5pm CST, where I’m from but there’s still no update. The setting still shows the ‘your system is up to date’. Been waiting for this update to try the knock code feature…

    • Verizonthunder

      T-Mobile pulled a fast one and removed the information for the new firmware update.

      • Matthew Moselle

        I noticed that. They lied to me and told me the update is only available through manufacturer only.i called LG and they tolde Tmobile lied to me and that they would send the me the update. Funny how these people lie about these things for no good reason.

  • Chilehead

    All four of us that bought this awesome phone are disappointed the update got pulled.

    • mreveryphone

      Man!

    • Chris Fisher

      This is my favorite (of many Android) phone I’ve had. I’m looking forward to the update and I’m sorry that it was pulled. I’m not as impatient as I used to be for updates so I guess I’ll sit back and wait some more.

    • Verizonthunder

      Update available now

  • Jeff

    Still no update. Anyone else not receiving the update either?

    • mueller2051

      no they pulled it untell further notice

      • mueller1051

        update says available. but still say my phone is current. with 4.2

        • morbid

          Same here… still can’t update mine.

    • Verizonthunder

      Update is available now

      • Chris Fisher

        Nothing for me this morning. Still ‘Up To Date’ at 4.2.2.

        • Verizonthunder

          Restart your phone and if that does not work check at noon. I do have the new firmware update and have proof but showing on here i am unable to uhg.

        • Chris Fisher

          I believe you! I’m happy that people seem to be getting it and I’ll check from time to time.

        • Verizonthunder

          Did you check again?

        • Chris Fisher

          No update as of 30 minutes ago.

        • morbid

          I still haven’t seen an update yet either. Maybe they banned me for too frequent of update requests? heheh

        • Chris Fisher

          That was pretty funny :) I did just remember that I rooted the phone a while back. Still stock ROM and recovery. If it doesn’t update by this weekend I’ll un root it and see if that helps.

        • Chris Fisher

          I un rooted and still no update. I figured I’d lose my root anyway and really don’t need it.

        • Chris Fisher

          I finally downloaded and installed the KitKat update using the LG PC Suite software. I’m not sure if it ever would have gone on its own. On the upgrade screen it did show as ROOTED in red but I verified before and after that apps that need root access does not have it.

        • morbid

          I gave up on the OTA update and installed pc suite. That had no problem identifying my phone needed the update… weird.

        • digital_femme

          Got mine around 8 this morning.

        • Matthew Moselle

          Whos your carrier and where are you at?

        • digital_femme

          Tmobile in Atlanta

        • Matthew Moselle

          So you got your update. Thats awesome. Im in FL. Hope i get mine soon. Just got off the phone with tmobile and they told me i could be waiting as long as june 20 for the update.

        • digital_femme

          That’s ridiculous, June 20th?? We’re practically neighbors. Maybe they’ll offer a manual update soon. Also check to see if you have it set to update on wi-fi only, since it’s a big file.

      • mreveryphone

        Looks like two people out of the four got the update so far… Still waiting on mine.

        • Verizonthunder

          It will arrive, trust me this major software update is big and impressive improvement especially on battery and performance

  • Jeff

    Still no update. Anyone else not receiving the update either?

  • Deez Knots

    Is this a joke or what. No F…… update yet! WTH

    • Verizonthunder

      I got the update at 3:28am 5/7/2014

  • Verizonthunder

    Hey as of 3:28am 5/7/2014 i am now downloading 4.4.2 for the T-Mobile LG G Flex!

  • Verizonthunder

    File size is 630.5mb

  • Verizonthunder

    Right off the bat the battery display changed to white, lg type and Swype more accurate, application change more smooth

  • Verizonthunder

    Option remove volume and brightness from notification

  • Verizonthunder

    If you use the alarm clock before it was small and on the left next to a small snooze button now the dismiss button is really big and underneath with a nice size snooze button

  • Verizonthunder

    Best improvement is the home buttons are completely hidden for a complete use of the screen for video and gaming just Swype down from the top of the screen to reveal transparent home button and other keys

  • echo

    Not update for my flex tmobile in puerto rico

  • Mark

    Let’s see it for the Xperia Z! Come on, Tmo, Sony’s released it!

  • tbone

    Still waiting for mines , massachusetts

  • _ImACelebrity

    im still waiting for this F*cking update and NADAAA!

  • mreveryphone

    I downloaded the pc suite, plugged my phone in and it still says my phone is up to date. Looks like my phone is cursed from getting this update…

    • mueller2051

      from the mouth of tmobil themselves. ” The update for the lg g flex was origanaly avialable on the 5th of may and some people where able to download and update their phones. It was pulled later that same day and released again on the 7th of may as a staggared release so it will only be availble to specific phones each day so that if there is a problem caused by the update every flex owner is not calling in for troubleshooting at the same time. Keep checking for it and when it becomes available to your IMEI number your phone will see the update and let you download. ” make you wonder if you want to download it

      • mreveryphone

        Kinda does make you wonder if you want to download it… But still if you plug your phone into the pc via LG’s download tool it should still work right?

  • rob

    Isis no longer works

  • Anthony Torres-Aguirre

    Don’t rush it because now my gps is a locator and it does not work with Starbucks app to locate stores in my area just to name one issue.
