So I am a little bothered that I havent seen this topic on the front page with how popular the S3 was/is. The AT&T support staff tells me to check with samsung. Is this something we should look forward to or will it be skipped? Since we no longer can upgrade after 18 months it would be nice to at least get the newest software on time.

My download started, but then it stopped. When I go to check for update, I get told I can't for another 13 hours.
Is there anywhere on the phone that I can start the update again?

Yes NJR I got my Update today also. Was shocked. I know it was pulled for S4 and guess you are correct on i9300 S3. Mine seems to be running fine. Just had to unroot and go back to stock before I could install. The settings are a lot different on 4.3. Have a nice weekend.

Had to pull an old phone out of storage since a new one got busted recently. I have my I747 which I updated via Kies to 4.1.1 a while back and am wondering if I need to upgrade to 4.1.2 first to get the 4.3 update. Been trying to update via Kies to 4.1.2. but it is telling me that my 4.1.1 I747 is up to date. When I try to check the OTA update I still don't get anything and it's telling me 4.1.1 is up to date.

I am Stil in SHOCK that AT&T got this update out ahead of others for S3. AT&T is almost always LAST. Now lets see if they are last with Kit Kat.

The 4.3 update has been reportedly delayed due to some issues.
I'm waiting on the 4.3 for my Note II as well, but same problem, seems to be delayed.

How you going to remove bloat ware without it being rooted?? XDA says not safe to root yet as normal since it has KNOX.

I've had the update for a couple days. It's still running great but i'm running into a couple issues. First there's about a 1 to 2 second lag on the lockscreen after wakeup. Second, theres about a 2 to 3 second lag when you access the gallery. One thing i'm very disappointed after the update is that I can no longer find the gyroscope callibrator. It was present in 4.0.4, 4.1.1 and 4.1.2 and it was a very useful tool to have and it would be nice to have it back. The mobile data toggle would've also been nice. One minor suggestion to Samsung, they should have updated the launcher and weather widget. The S3 mini with 4.2.2 preinstalled has them but not the S3 which is a tiny bit disappointing but not a deal breaker. Overall, its a nice update but there are a couple things need to be fixed or added.

Got the update this morning. So far not impressed.
1) Texting has crashed my phone about 10 times today. I think it might be the Samsung Keyboard so I'm going to download the google one and try it out later.
2) Sluggishness. Wile some things seem to respond quicker, like opening/closing applications, other seem less responsive, like navigating within those applications, navigating the app drawer, etc. Apps do seem to crash less though.
3) More features removed than added. Unable to disable Samsung Apps, unable to hide applications.
