Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

[ Edited ]

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

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

It doesn't surprise me that one of their reps talked like that. Anyway, even if you reach their tech department those reps are clueless and only know what their system tells them. I wish I could always talk to a well educated IT rep, but that'll never happen at AT&T. They are rated the worst customer service because they have people answering the phones with not a care or clue. They put you on hold all the time when you ask a question that falls outside their streamlined troubleshooting steps.

I just used the 'Software Update' option on my Galaxy to check for an update and it downloading an 82.05MB file... I'll update my poat once it's complete to confirm.

 

Update: Nevermind... not sure what just downloaded to my device, but it wasn't Jellybean.  The device still shows version 4.0.4.

ATT rep said they will release 4.2 and skip 4.1......feeling like when 4.2 come out they will say sorry we skip 4.2 too and go 5.0 instead........and if we root and install custom rom we might brick the phone thus kicking the phone off the warranty list if we don't know what we doing.

AT&T is not skipping 4.1. The reps were misinformed by an improperly worded press release. I am planning on rooting my phone and installing a custom ROM this weekend. I've had it with AT&T's dillydallying.

Re: So where the heck is Jellybean??

Jelly bean 4.1 was decided to be skip to 4.2 release instead.........meaning when 4.2 hit they will have new excuse that 4.2 not compatible with their LTE signal therefore will be skip to 4.3 or 5.0

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

I might do the same today, ICS is great but JB is much smoother when I compare the two with my and my friend's GS3 from Sprint

Nice to see you are visiting these forums. Did I miss something over on our forum because I thought that the concensus was that whatever any rep tells a user can't be validated due to so many conflicting responses? I saiid that I was staying low, & plan still plan to, until JB is released in whatever version it may be. Your response about 4.2 simply caught my eye as no one, & I mean no one, within the AT&T organization is allowed to release any other information other than the familiar "coming in the near future..." Oh well, just my 2 cents...

I decided to respond only to inform you that I know for a definitive fact, regardless of you having "spoken with higher ups", that no one at AT&T is allowed to release any information other than what I pointed out in my last post. If the update indeed turns out to be 4.2, it will not be based on any conversations that you've had with AT&T employees. It will simply be attributed to the 'luck of the draw' per se. Signing off...

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

this is all AT&Ts fault.if it were up to Samsung they would already have jelly bean on their current flagship device. Why wouldn't they want their flagship phone operating as fast as possible. AT&T on the other hand could care less because the s3 is not their flagship device.so anyway, here we are now at the end of the month and no jelly bean.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean Update - When to Expect?

ATT is pointing the finger at Samsung is a joke. They're trying to deflect the responsibility and that's sad. Don't fall for it. Samsung has given JB to ATT a while ago.
