T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S5 Android 4.4.2 KitKat Update Available Now, Adds VoLTE Voice Calls Support

T-Mobile has launched a new small Android 4.4.2 KitKat update that adds support for VoLTE on Samsung Galaxy S5. The new firmware is rolling out right now and you should keep an eye on your device in order to be one of the first users to install it.

Android 4.4.2 KitKat update is currently available for all the latest smartphones that were launched in the last 12 months and, the T-Mobile Galaxy S5 was fortunate enough to have it pre-installed. However, the first KitKat 4.4.2 firmware build of T-Mobile SGS5 wasn’t complete which is why now we’re getting a new firmware.

In G900TUVU1BNG3 you will get VoLTE for making voice calls enabled, this will allow all T-Mobile Galaxy S5 owner to make and receive calls over T-Mobile’s LTE network at higher quality. There are might be some other major enhancements added, but, if they are, then we couldn’t find them in the changelog.

The update is being rolled out in phases over Wi-Fi and you should get it starting today. If the update isn’t arriving today, then you shouldn’t worry as I’m sure that it will be delivered by the end of next week. Alternatively you can spam the Software Updates menu under Settings> About Phone section, but that might not change anything.

If you still wish to install this new ROM without waiting for T-Mobile to send it to your Galaxy S5 automatically, then you can choose to do it manually using our tutorial here. The download size of the file is somewhere around 1.5GB as it is the complete Android 4.4.2 G900TUVU1BNG3 ROM, while the official update measures only 30MB.

If you own a T-Mobile Galaxy S5 device and you got the official Android 4.4.2 UVU1BNG3 firmware update, then fell free to tell us in comments if there is any major improvement over the previous build. Also, make sure to list info on its battery life.

    Got the download a couple days ago. The battery seems to be draining about 25% faster and when using apps the battery gets very warm very quick.

        So after some app updates my draining issue does not seem to be as prevalent. Flipboard seemed to be the biggest culprit.

    With the new update I got a power saving mode icon on my notification panel. Can someone please tell me how to get rid of it, it is so annoying!

    • pashtin

      go to your settings and go to notification panel. its pretty straight forward from there. or pull down your notification bar and hold the power saving mode button and screw with the settings. or maybe its on and needs to be turned off. i would suggest learning how to use power saving mode throughout your day and train your battery to last longer. same goes for adam

        Prior to the update I had the Power Saving mode set to restrict background data. It’s still set to that but now I have an error in my notification bar to disable that feature… WTF TMO?
