Default Not getting Ota for 4.4.2 and kies doesn't work (battery issue)

This is my mom's phone and she is getting less than 2.5 hrs screen on time on the note3.

I'm with T-Mobile and currently the phone is on 4.3. The Android os is keeping her phone awake and now the battery life is worse than before. Now it's less than 2hrs SOT

So I thought I'd update it and it just says "software update is temporarily unavailabe. Try again later"

OK, no problem since I'm not using it with Verizon I figured I wouldn't get the update but it was worth a shot (since update is pushed thru Verizon and not samsung)

I tried to use kies 2.6 and it says use kies 3.0. With 3.0 it says device is not supported.

The phone is not recognizing it being plugged in as a USB there is no USB option in the notification bar that allows it to be toggled between mass storage and camera.

I'm using the v8 v9 USB from my nexus 4 and used my galaxy 4 USB (don't have the note 3 one) (just ordered one) could it be because I'm not using the new 3.0 USB?

Everything is stock not rooted

try going in to settings, about phone, build number, tap build number repeatedly til u see developer options unlocked, go back to settings into dev options, and turn on usb debugging, plug your usb back into your computer to see if other drivers download to get kies workin.

What did you have to do for that just put tmo SIM in and you are good to go?

My quandary is t mobile note 3 have unlocked bootloader Verizon has a locked down bootloader t mobile also has a wider feature set and better rom support. Tmo network just sucks though.

What I would do is factory reset the phone root it install safestrap and one of the custom roms and I would not bother trying to odin nc4 onto it.

If your dead set on a stock experience you're going to have to download a stock nc4 image and use odin to upgrade I advise against this as it runs the risk of tripping Knox rooting and rom is a smaller risk but still a risk. But the other disadvantage is nc4 is not rootable.
