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.

The updated is out turn on your wifi and check for update. I have had it for a couple days now. Make surw your battery is charged. The update is 623.10MB. If it loses the server set your date a day ahead. Good luck and enjoy.

Updated the first day it was available. I concur with the people who are noting the slugglish response - not huge, but noticeable. But I have another problem that's really bugging me. I have a constant slew of picture download notifications (see attched screenshot) that just won't go away. I wipe them off the notifications bar, and they come right back. Anybody else having this issue? Anybody know how to fix this?

I just got a pop-up tonight to try City ID for 10-day trial. Did the 4.3 update installs this garbage without asking me?
I also noticed other "new" programs after the 4.3 upgrade. Why wasn't I asked first?
Since I cannot remove these unwanted programs, is stopping all I can do to turn them off?
Are any of these needed for 4.3 to run:
Ant Radio Services
If I wanted these I would have installed them myself.

Some of these were part of the 4.3 that came with the Note 3. Some might have been added by AT&T.
The Ant Radio Service was probably added by Samsung as that's a framework for talking to other devices that use that protocol. Lots of "health" devices especially running use the Ant framework.
I believe TripAdvisor was some partnership with Samsung so part of the update.
LookOut is a samsung thing as well.
Google Photos I think is part of the google apps that come with android, like gmail and hangouts.
Don't know about the others though.

I just update my Android to version 4.3 provided by AT&T and I'm facing all kinds of problems, including reduced battery and big performance issue, the phone is very slow right now.
