Check for new updates by opening Settings, then More and tap on About Device menu. Next, press Software Update and then hit the Check for Updates button. If the new updating files are ready for download you need to click OK and then Continue,  the software files will be downloaded by your smartphone. After the download is complete you simply need to confirm the update, the AT&T Galaxy S4 will restart after the new firmware files are installed with success. Check that the new ROM has been installed correctly by going to Settings> More and then open About Device: the Android version should say 4.4.2.

Remember that AT&T will release the Android 4.4.2 OTA in stages, so you shouldn’t worry in case your Galaxy S4 doesn’t get the update notification today. Use the ‘Check for Updates’ button under Settings daily until the update reaches your device.
