    I have heard that Verizon is releasing an update for the Note II. I am surprised I haven't seen any mention of it hear. Anyone have any idea on when it may be out and exactly what it is? I heard rumor it is 4.1.2 but not confirmed.

    I have seen a few people say they got it. And they seemed credible with real looking screenshots, but yes it's been real quiet.

    Verizon said the other day that there will be a update for the note 2 very soon. They did not say that it would be 4.1.2 but they did say that it would bring more apps to the multi Window feature

    My phone updated yesterday. I'm still on 4.1.1. I'd like to think there's another update being rolled out, trying to stay hopeful.

    On my phone, Office Suite Pro and Falcon Pro are available now. Those are the only two apps that weren't there before.

    I have forgotten the procedure to initiate an update. Does anyone remember the mechanics.

    I used it successfully several times before.

    Jazzy beat me to it. I'm not sure what else you could be looking for?

    There use to be a way that you could put a certain number and push pound and it would push the update to your phone. But I am not sure if that works anymore.

    These are the steps you need to take to check for the update.

    I believe you are referring to the *228 call. This is a call that reaches out to the network and requests the device MIN, MDN, and an updated PRL. This doesn't work on LTE devices as those are managed differently. If you are using a 3G device you can still do that without issue. Best case scenario it improves your coverage. PRL's are pushed pretty regularly to devices anyhow, so this is essentially un-needed these days.

    My understanding is not to *228 on 4g could damage phone or sim card

    Got it.
    Multi Window is working.
    I noticed when writing a text the auto populate is different and it's remembering my words better.
