T-Mobile officially announced that they are rolling out a new Android 4.4.2 update for their Samsung Galaxy S5 variant. If you happen to own a T-Mobile Galaxy S5 you’d better start checking the notification bar.

According to T-Mobile’s support page the new Android 4.4.2 update for Samsung Galaxy S5 has software version G900TUVU1ANE6 and it arrives with fixes for “intermittently incoming SMS/MMS failure” and network connectivity enhancements. As usual, the new software updated will be rolled out in phases meaning that certain owners will not be able to download and install it right away.

After your T-Mobile Galaxy S5 unit will become eligible to receive the new Android 4.4.2 firmware you should be prompted to update OTA in the notification area. Tap on the notification and follow the on-screen instructions. In case you haven’t received the notification you should also check for the update manually under Settings > General > About device > Software update > Check now. You can also grab the USB cable, connect the smartphone to the PC and check for the new firmware via KIES.

T-Mobile’s support page also mentions that the update file has a size of 180 MB (we recommend you to download it via WiFi to avoid data charges) and that you’ll need 50% or higher battery life.
