Default T-Mobile update rollout

So I'm a fresh convert to tmo and was curious as to their average speed for rolling out updates for the phones. Pretty quick or like Verizon?

Better than Verizon but of course that's not saying much. Ha ha!

I find it to be extra slow since the only reason I have Tmobile is for wifi calling. On other carriers just root and install the latest OS that's inevitably leaked weeks to months early but we've gotta wait for tmobile to release that wifi calling... Of course the competition doesn't have wifi calling so at all...

Since KK changed permissions for writing to SD card, most third party programs need to be updated before they will work properly if they use SD card, so chances are some things may break after update. There is a quick fix but you need to be rooted and there is no way to root KK without tripping Knox flag ATM. The benefits supposed to be little better speed and better battery life, but this being one of the fastest phones on the market ATM speed was never a problem for me, neither was the battery with 3-4 days of moderate use. I also believe being rooted right now, with Knox flag=0, I can tweak my phone for speed and battery life much better than any KK upgrade can, so I can't see any reason to upgrade as much as I try. Given more time all programs will hopefully be updated and someone will find a way to root without disturbing Knox, but for now T-mo can take as much time as they want to release update as far as I'm concerned. I already was stupid enough to update my old GS3 to 4.3 soon after roll out. The only difference I saw was that stupid Knox being installed, then had to waste few hours to root it and delete knox. I will try not make same mistake again.

if you root, but leave everything stock, does it break wifi calling?
