    I get it. I think I will not update. But I may unlock. My last question is; if I unlock, KIES will update firmwares? or I will have to always do it manually.

    thanks

    Providing you keep your firmware and Product Code matching, Kies will update.
    If you are not going to change your firmware , then do not go to the trouble and expense of unlocking.

    You can also root your phone, and Kies will continue to give updates, although you will not get Over The Air (OTA) updates on a rooted phone.

    One word of warning - Samsung has brought a security 'fuse' into firmware through Knox from android 4.3 onwards.
    Rooting can 'blow the fuse' after which you will not get any further updates.

    Hola, tengo un S4 de Claro Argentina y me pasa lo mismo, quiero actualizar android a 4.3 y veo que Movistar y Personal ya lo tienen y Claro todavía no. Me molesta bastante el hecho de no poder actualizar y bastante mas que se hayan tomado el trabajo de hacer un carrier cambiando los iconos principales de samsung (que a mi gusto son horribles los de Claro) y poniendo apps basura. Realmente no se mucho ni me animo tampoco a tocar demasiado el telefono, tampoco tengo un ingles muy bueno como para entender al 100% lo que sugieren, pero algo los pude seguir. Si llegas a encontrar la manera de hacerlo de forma segura te agradeceria que me lo enseñes.
    Lo poco que pude entender en otros sitios parece ser que hay que hacer un usuario root y con el programa ODIN cargar el firmware samsung oficial de Android 4.3, el que dice Argentina solo, no claro, no personal, no nada, libre de carrier, sin que sea necesario liberar el telefono, seguiria siendo Claro pero ya no tendria el carrier con la propaganda inicial, los iconos y las apps...Gracias y disculpa si me mal enganche en tu conversación. Saludos
