I thought these were manufacturer updates? my nokia updates come from microsoft not AT&T

Yes and no, Google releases them to the manuftures, manufactures to the carriers then the carriers to people. ATT is the absolute worst at letting PAYING customers know when important updates will happen to their phones that they are under contract. 4.3 is a piece of garbage that took a good phone and turned it it a constant problem.

Well, the fact that Sprint has released the KitKat update on their S3 is good news for us regardless. We usually get our updates after Sprint so I would expect it by June, but I haven't seen anything confirming that time either. It's just a hunch based on previous information I heard and past experiences. The sooner the better. AT&T S3 owners have suffered long enough with this dreadful 4.3 firmware.

Unfortunately, that is indeed how it works. Supposedly, Touchwiz isn't playing nice with the update so they are trying to work the bugs out. Last thing I heard, we would have KitKat by the end of June. Google is mad because according to them, the S3 should have got the update sooner because the S3 was still in the 18 month window when KitKat first came out. Anyway,KitKat is great on my Moto G, which is running near stock. Extremely few manufacterer custom tweaks to the OS, and no carrier bloatware. Regardless, I want my S3 back to what it used to be. It was great prior to 4.3 Jellybean.

That is all fine and dandy but between Samsung and ATT inability to even give the stage it is in is unacceptable. Worse yet the great suck carrier ATT does not even chime in on the post in these forums. To keep me sane appears t-mobile and Nexus are in my future.

I'm trying to understand why we have to go through this every time there's an update? You would think that AT&T would have a process in place by now so updates will be done more quickly. It's very frustrating to have to always go through this. I think this is a way to force people that are happy with the phones they have, to spend money to upgrade.

They were saying we would get the update May 2014. They must have meant May 2015. AT&T's to large to not have better service for their customers. If they're not going to upgrade the S3 with KitKat, they should at least offer us the S4 at a discounted rate.

I just posted a thread on this, because even the search feature didn't pick up on the fact that this was already posted.
I hate how they drag their feet and take forever to get us an update. We waited much longer for the 4.3 update than we should have. I guess it's just par for the course. I have not heard anything about Verizon useres getting the 4.4 update yet, either though. So that's a good sign.
And at least we are not the international useres who are screwed with the GT-I9300 version. That update has been scrubbed, due to a lack of ram in the device.
