When will the 4.2.2 Jelly Bean Update be sent out to the public? Verizon customers have already received it!

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.
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.
Someone from at&t told me that they were going to release 4.1.2 in a few weeks when other carriers are going to get 4.2.2 in july this month!!!!
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.
How can we improve?
