Don't hold your breath. My guess is you'll be eligible for another upgrade by the time ATT releases the update. I someone at ATT realizes that you can't expect people to buy phones if you're not ready to improve the way these phones are supported. I just don't understand them.

It's quite obvious ATT really doesn't care what other carriers have pushed out what other updates relevant to the S3. There's really no benefit to them to put in the extra work. 

 

If you really need that 4.2 upgrade I would suggest installing a custom ROM. There are plenty out there and they are very easy to do. The only downside is that you may experience some issues with some aspects of your phone not working right. But for the most part the custom ROMs are very good and stable.

Dear att I am a valued employee and have a gs3 phone and I need the newest update for my phone and don't want to be forced to upgrade to the s4 just to have the update not to say I will eventually but it's not fair to leave all us s3 owners in the dark when every other carrier has updated there s3 and samsung has already said it's on you guys.

Good look on that one. There are other threads in this forum with the same problem. Try placing a BBB complain.

I'm tired of this. The same delays occurred with the Samsung Galaxy S Captivate 2 1/2 years ago. I went the custom rom way back then. I thought it would be different with the S3 but I'm wrong again, but I won't make that mistake again. My 1 year warranty ends in September, Then I'll cancel AT&T, pay the earty tern penalty, and get a Nexus 4 thru T-Mobile. I'd be a fool not to go with T-Mobile with their new JUMP plan & lower priced Family plan that includes unlimited voice, text, & 500MB data for about half of what I'm paying AT&T now! You had your chance AT&T.

To file a complaint just go to BBB.org, but just remember that once you file a complaint many customer service people will brush you off to that department then and they take a while to respond.

Filed my complaint and got a call from a rep in NC. Who just arrogantly apologized. No date or which update, just told me to keep an eye out for an update. T-Mobile here I come.

I've just installed a custom 4.3 ROM. Works great. Forget ATT and their lame updates that take a century to roll out. Take control of your phone and install the latest and greatest ROM! 

 

Of course this forum will not let me post the name of the ROM that I installed since its such a Threat to them. The initials are SB in XDA.
