Sprint Releases The G900PVPU1AND2 Launch Day Update For The Galaxy S5 A Little Late

Better late than never, right? Though the first update for Sprint's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 isn't a hugely important one, at least according to its own changelog, some users over at XDA were eagerly awaiting it. It appears that at least some users are now getting the update. In the nature of these things, it may take a bit of time to get around to all the S5 owners on Sprint.

PSA: Sprint Is Planning To Make All Its Devices From February 11, 2015 Onward Domestically Unlockable

The US mobile market is weird in that almost all the phones floating around here are locked to one carrier or another. You can usually request an unlock code from the carrier if you are not under contract or still paying off the device, but Sprint is different. It claims it doesn't have any mechanism to unlock phones for use on other US carriers right now, but that's going to change next year.

Android 4.4.3 (Build KTU84F) For The Nexus 5 Should Start Rolling Out Today, According To Sprint [Update]

Update: Build KTU84F will hit devices between today and April 21st. Sprint hasn't fixed the typo on its support page, but the forum post has the build right.

What a day for an OTA – specifically, Android 4.4.3 for the Nexus 5. Sprint has updated its support page to indicate KTU84F is dropping today, which we understand to be the rumored 4.4.3 release. There is a Sprint-specific tweak in this update, but the software should also be hitting N5s that aren't connected to the Sprint network at the same time.

Verizon And Sprint Have Also Removed Download Booster From The Galaxy S5, But T-Mobile Does Include It [Update]

On the off chance you were looking for another reason to be annoyed at the big US carriers, you may have found it. According to Fierce Wireless, AT&T isn't the only carrier that opted to remove Download Booster from the new Samsung Galaxy S5 – both Verizon and Sprint have yanked Samsung's LTE-WiFi merging feature. That would make T-Mobile the only US national carrier that supports it. Update: We've been tipped that the US Cellular Galaxy S5 will have Download Booster as well.
