Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

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

Was told by att customer service that we should have jellybean 4.1.2 by Jan 15 at the latest and that the reason 4.1.1 took so long is it kept making phones turn off so they werent going to release it till it was fixed

@jakel24 - I'm considering exchanging my Nokia Lumina 920 for this phone. Please tell me the Android 4.1.1 update doesn't reintroduce the Samsung Captivate (original Galaxy S) random power off bug. That was a nightmare!

Has anyone done the OTA update to JB yet? I have not seen it come to me yet (I am on wifi alot).

What enhancements does JB do for the S3's?

I hear that the new Galaxy is supposed to be out around Oct or Nov here in the states, if that is the case I would imagine that the newest Jelly Bean would be on it.  I wonder if that is why they wait, strategic move to make us want to just buy the new phone and spend more money...  I do not know why AT&T is always the last to roll out an update but it is extremely irritating.

The new Galaxy S4 is actually coming out in less than a month, with AT&T pre-orders starting on April 16.

It was Adobe's decision, as they don't want to be in the mobile OS market anymore.  They stopped supporting their Flash Player with the new version of Android.


One of the big selling points of Android devices was their Adobe Flash compatibility. Now that flash is being phased out of convention, you won’t be able to download flash from the Play Market. That however doesn’t mean that you can’t get it.Ures can Manually install flash on thier Samsung Android Device

However, even if flash is installed on your phone and you use Chrome on your phone to browse the web, flash still won't work.  You'll have to either use the stock Samsung browser or find a different one. I don't know which ones actually work since I rarely visit flash sites on my phone.

And we're still waiting while Sprint released it weeks ago and the Premium Suite today. I wouldn't put much stock in what reps say, csse in point.

It's sad and pathetic that Sprint is running circles around AT&T when it comes to keeping their flagship devices updated.
