Does anyone know when ours is coming? Sprint got theirs in October, and T-Mobile is pushing out the update today... I don't understand why it's taking AT&T so long
7 years ago
Just read that AT&T was delaying the Jelly Bean update till January 2013. They have already released the update in Europe so its not a code issue. Not too happy about this since AT&T agreed two years ago at the Google Android conference to not delay these updates anymore.
Note to AT&T: If you are worried about crashing the network, ask me to come into a store to do it or force me to use my USB cable and not perform the upgrade OTR. Delaying this just makes me not want to get my next device from you. Please value your customers who buy these expensive devices by not sitting on the software updates.
Updates from AT&T almost always come out later than other regions. They claim to be taking extra time in "testing". But whatever the reason, AT&T is notorious for length delays of updates. Just because Europe is getting it, means nothing for us.
Besides, I believe the European version of the GS3 has completely different hardware, meaning its not remotely the same firmware.
I came from an iphone 5 and the speed of that thing was like lightning! This S3 is no where close to being as quick. Everyone is telling me to wait until jellybean is out and it will be as fast as or even faster than an iphone 5. So when is att releasing it???

You're coming from a phone that was released one month and 2 days ago?
I totally agree. AT&T should be ashamed of doing this to their customers.
AT&T update policy sucks. Highest prices on the market and worst service 😞
Sprint had pushed out their Jelly Bean updates to their GS3 customers, hopefully AT&T will be next!
Yes, tired of iphone. Can't play flash player and there is way more I can do with an android phone. I'm not an apple junkie, I just had iphones for quite a while. The iphone 5 /apple is so limited with thier security stuff. I now am able to do work through my android and check my corporate emails. Love the bigger screen on s3 and lot's of other things. I do miss some things about iphone, but not enough to go back.
Flash Player doesn't work in Jelly Bean FYI
What the heck?? Your kidding???????
Why would you want the Nexus 4 when it doesn't support LTE? I can understand is pure Google and it gets the updates as soon as they're launched, but the S3 supports LTE, just hang in there and wait for the update. It's not like the phone right now is bad.

AT&T phones with LTE, also have the HSPA and GSM bands to get data roaming most anywhere in the world (same as the Nexus 4), so this is not a valid argument. Yes, an AT&T phone won't get LTE while abroad, but neither will the Nexus 4.
Your other points about LTE are mostly valid. HSPA is fast enough for most things, and if LTE is not even available in your area, I can certainly see the allure of the Nexus platform (although I personally hate LG hardware).
Also, LTE is not always a battery killer. I get around 2 days (48 hours) of battery on a single charge with my One X while on LTE.
