    As I have pointed out, the update does not come from Samsung but from your network operator. So get on to the members Website to make your unhappiness known.

    As for unlocking, first of all is your Note locked?
    Have you tried another network SIM card?

    If locked try your operator to see if they will give a free unlock, or how much they will charge. This is the best unlock.

    If charged, try an online unlocker or your local mobile shop.

    I'll look for a DIY unlock, but your phone will have to be rooted first.

    OK, sorry! I didn't want to upset anyone. I haven't rooted my Note 3 as I was waiting KitKat as it make more sense to get upgrade and then root the device. But it is catch 22, I need to root old 4.3 then upgrade to 4.4.2 and then root again. I don't mind to do it as I had lots of exp with jailbreaking iPhones. My phone is on a contract so it is 100% locked. I do everything myself why should I pay to some monkey the money for something I can do myself?
    The only question I have is will I be able to preserve my phone's data if I root 4.3 then unlock, then upgrade to 4.4.2 and then unlock and root again?

    If on the 3 network an unlock is apparently free.

    Hello, I have unlocked my phone. So there is no upgrade to KitKat 4.4.2 yet in the UK. So could you please advise how I can get it installed? Is there official ROM (software) from Samsung any where?

    As you are probably aware, the 4.4.2 is being rolled out slowly.
    At times like this I would be looking at another European country, and the one to choose at the moment is Poland.

    Just be aware that Kies will not update after installing this firmware and future updates willhave to be carried out manually.
    Model: SM-N9005
    Country: Poland
    Version: Android 4.4.2

    why Poland? Germany, Netherland and many others! What is the difference between country specific ROMs?

    Very simple, Poland is the only Open (non network) European firmware with 4.4.2 at the moment.

    Edit: and Netherlands.

    What you are looking for is a firmware with the European regional PDA code XXU
