Sprint Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4.2 N900PVPUCNC5 Update Brings WiFi Calling

Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Sprint’s Galaxy Note 3 got updated to Android 4.4.2 back in February, but the US carrier is now releasing a new KitKat-based update for the Samsung phablet. Unlike the update that was released in February, the new firmware that it’s now being pushed to Note 3 users is a minor update that adds support for WiFi calling.

The Galaxy Note 3 is not the first Sprint device that receives the WiFi calling support, as the feature was also released for both Samsung Galaxy Mega and Galaxy S4 Mini back in February.

While the last Sprint Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update brought features cloud printing, immersive mode, white status bar icons, transparent status and nav bars, emoji support, TouchWiz UI tweaks, and more, the carrier lists “WiFi Calling” as the only enhancement brought by the new firmware. It’s also worth mentioning that the new update is labelled N900PVPUCNC5.

As usual, the N900PVPUCNC5 OTA update for Sprint Galaxy Note 3 is being rolled out in stages and it can take several days until all users will be able to download and install it. When your Note 3 is eligible for the Android 4.4.2 N900PVPUCNC5 update a system update message will pop up in the notification area and all you need to is download the update file, select Install now after the download is finished, and wait for the smartphone to reboot and apply the upgrade.

Sometimes, a firmware update only becomes available after a manual check which can be performed from Settings > General > System Update > Update. Alternatively, you can check for the update via KIES by connecting your Note 3 to the PC using the USB cable.

Sprint doesn’t mention anything about the size of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 Kitkat N900PVPUCNC5 update, but it shouldn’t weigh more than 50 MB. Anyway the best way to download it using a stable WiFi network to avoid data charges.

Have you received the Android 4.4.2 KitKat N900PVPUCNC5 update on your Note 3? Sprint users I’m looking to you.

    I have the update installed on my Note 3 but all I’m getting is ‘Network error… please try again’ with option buttons for ‘not now’ and ‘retry’. Not sure what’s going on here.

    Haven’t tried it, but funny story: I was just now mucking about in my Note 3 settings and clicked “check for updates” on a whim, and I was pleasantly surprised to find this update available. Immediately following the reboot, this article was the top card on my Google Now feed. I lol’d.

    Downloading as I type this on my Galaxy Tab 3. I usually randomly check for updates but I didn’t today so thumbs up to Android Geeks and Google Now info cards.

    I got it. Nothing else changed. Only 43mb update.

  • Brian

    Just downloaded it, went through the setup process and nothing happened. It basically wanted me to go through the setup process again, which I did, only to receive a “Network Error” message to retry later. Not sure what’s up, but given my luck with Sprint lately, I’m not surprised.

    my mom’s Sprint Galaxy Note 3 received the update few days ago

  • Al T.

    Just received the update and I haven’t installed it yet. I’m glad I saw it on my Google Now cards. I was getting a network error but that’s because my wifi is turned off. All I did was uncheck the wifi box and I got the update download, 43 or 48 MB.

My phone poped up a message saying update ready to install So I looked to see what it was and it said Wi-Fi Calling I let it install. after I installed it I keept getting error over and over then it said updating your service plan. and wam it workes but after it updated my service plan it said either blank or invalid memory card. I rebooted no difference. Put y sd card in y laptop and its blank. I tried to save a file to it and it errors out incorect SD format. So it fried y Sandisk 32 Gig sd card.

    WARNING!!! SD Card Dangers. I see I’m not the only person it cleared the SD card on. First they made it to where you cant use the programs you want to manage your SD card but now they wipe it for you so you have no reason to use the SD card. Hesitant to try a reboot in fear that it might wipe the data again. Glad I had _JUST_ made a full backup. Still blew over an hour.

    Hey GOOGLE, How bout I send you a bill for lost time, destruction of private property, and theft of features! $1K should cover it…per incident.
