Default [Q] Wrong country

hi, I have a french bought S4 non-network specific, I am now back in the uk and using my 3 PAYG sim. Will i have any problems updating to 4.4 when it comes out either over kies or OTA?

i see t-mobile has released the update today but no sign of the generic update yet.

being in the uk will i get the uk release or will i have to flash a local version?

No. You can be relaxed. Coz ur phone is french how u are telling me (XEF). This mean that u will receive french updates. The latest firmware available is I9505XXUEMKF

*EDIT: You can go China if you want but u will receive the french updates anyway coz is the CSC of your phone. Hit "THANKS" button if i helped u
