When will this device get updated? I checked the FB wall of koodo and nothing. I'm looking to know the date of the release of the 4.4.2 kitkat update forS3 andriod device.


On a side note:
I bought my phone at factory direct unlocked. Will my phone relock to its original carrier if I update it to 4.4.2?

No worries about your device ever becoming locked again after being unlocked, once unlocked it's unlocked for good.
As far as updates go Koodo has nothing to do with the updates for your device as its not the carrier that you are using the device on that will push the updates to the device it's the carrier that originally sold the device.
Lastly the S3 is now over 2 years old and as such it will not be receiving any further updates to the Operating system. 2 years is the max cutoff point for updates from all Android device makers so your S3 will be on the version of Android it is now for the rest of its life, you will not get any further updates.
