Just another frustrated customer. I'm thinking this is my last contract as well. I am so headed to Verizon if AT&T doesn't speed things up with the updates.

I have to say you will be frustrated no matter where you go. Sometimes it Verzion that is last as they were with 4.1.1 and sometimes it is ATT. If you want the latest, root your phone and go with Cyanogen. 

 

ATT will have 4.1.2 eventually.

That would be nice but the delay has nothing at all to do with Samsung. This is purely AT&T dragging their feet. Cricket of all carriers will be getting the update next week and AT&T still hasn't mentioned anything about it. SAD

Kies works for you???
I think I've gotten it to work twice since November. Worst software I've ever tried to use, and that goes back a lot of years. LoL!

Update.

       According to Samsung (5 minutes ago), the update has yet to be released.  So I don't know if Samsung rep is wrong (unlikely) or if AT&T rep is blowing smoke.  They need to get their act together.  A flagship phone should not have to wait this long for an update that all others are getting already.  Its pretty sad when the GSII is getting the update before the GSIII.  What a waste AT&T.

Re: Samsung galaxy s3 jelly update 4.1.2

Does he have the correct phone model? I know it was stated many times that it was SIII and Tren agreed. If 4.1.2 was available since 3/13 or so the version whould have been posted online by now.

 

Something does not make sense here.

Re: Samsung galaxy s3 jelly update 4.1.2

One would think so.  I am just sick of AT&T always being behind the pack when it comes to updates.  I understand that they like to have their bloatware installed on the phones and that they want to make certain that the new software works with their bloatware but come on.  Maybe they should take a good long look at how many peolpe actually use the bloated apps that they preinstall.  I mean, who the heck uses AT&T Navigator when there are far better (and free) options available?  They claim to be all about new technology and yet they sit the bench every time an update comes out.  When they finally updated the HTC Inspire it was with software that was already outdated.

Re: Samsung galaxy s3 jelly update 4.1.2

Agreed. I use the myAT&T app and that's it! I've never even opened the other ones and have hidden them altogether. Likewise with most of the Samsung apps. AT&T is lucky they have great coverage in my area or I wouldn't have switched from tmobile.
I'll be taking a hard look at the next nexus device. Hopefully it's made by HTC or Samsung.

Re: Samsung galaxy s3 jelly update 4.1.2

Many people dont use the ATT software, but for those that do (and there are people) it is revenue for ATT. Dont forget it is all about making money.

 

ATT has no incentive to update OS'. Just think of all the calls to the call center for the reps to handle because people did not install the OS correctly or something went wrong.

 

Also, most people dont do the install of a new OS especially if its only available thru Kies.  Most people dont care if they are running 4.1.1 or 4.1.2 or 4.2 for that matter. For those that really do care root their phone and instal CM 10.

 

ATT is not the last one in all cases. For 4.1.2 yes they are but for 4.1.1 Verizon was last.

Re: Samsung galaxy s3 jelly update 4.1.2

Mike,

     That's true that it is all about money but how much would they lose if people started to jump ship over their lack of appreciation for technology driven customers?  And the calls to the call center will happen regardless of OS updates.  I can't imagine that they pay a whole lot to the foreign workers that are answering the phones.  When a company releases a flagship phone, customers expect to receive flagship service on that device.  Dont take this the wrong way, but it sounds like you are a little too close to AT&T to see see the big picture.  I will most likely never change carriers due to the fact that I do get exceptional reception over all other carriers in my area.  Reception, however, has nothing to do with product upkeep.  Hopefully AT&T will get this OS update out soon but it is not this update alone that is so frustrating.  It is their lack of urgency in most manners of technology upgrades.  Yes they came out with the iphone first but how long can they live off that legend?
