You want to know what is really sad and twisted about this scenario?  AT&T will drive people into forking out the cash up front for unlocked/unbranded phones just so they receive their software updates in a reasonable/realistic/relevant timeframe, which will hurt AT&T branded phone sales, which will hurt AT&T's bottom line, so AT&T will raise miscellaneous fees on everyone to make up the difference.  

 

In short, they will tax you for their own incompetence. 


If that happens, I'll start looking at T-Mobile again!

 

However, keep in mind that if people stop purchasing AT&T devices, AT&T will no longer have to subsidize devices for those people, yet still charge them the same monthly rates. The trade-off for us is that we no longer have to sign contracts. Also, unlocked/unbranded devices, particularly ones with stock Android, seem to have a much higher resale value than their carrier counterparts. I recently sold my Galaxy Nexus, a phone that was $300 brand new via Google Play, for $250. In other words, use the device for a year, sell it and use the gains to subsidize the cost of a new device.

Not true. I had the samsung s3 thru verizon and left due to poor voice coverage. And my phone had 4.1.2 and an update went to the phone that gave actually dual window and neat gallary changes where u can view ur photos in spiral or rolodex view to see ahead what u r looking for. Pretty cool.

@carlosbuka:

The 4.3 for GS4 Google Edition leaked. This version hasn't even been announced by Google. The carrier variant of GS4 is still on 4.2.2.

So after reading the majority of posts on this topic - everyone with a GS3 and AT&T are stuck with 4.1.1 still?!  My phone has significantly gotten slower and not having the update is ridiculous... I've had this phone for almost a year. Is anyone else having system slowdowns and freezes with their phone because it's not updated?  PS Kies does suck!

Kies is terrible and yes, my phone freezes occasionally requiring a battery pull to get it going again.

All the others wireless companies already have it.
Why is taking so long for at&t to give us this update?
They want all of us to buy the Samsung s4 I guess.

Not all of us are confident enough to root our phones, yeah there are guides but the risk of bricking the phone, Finally a response about the update but of course "working to release it"

like i mention before the reason att is not releasing the update is because they want to add their bloatware on the firmware.samsung release the update months back to every carrier in u.s.a and canada is the same firmware for every carrier the difference is the bloatware nothing else.for some reason att is having problems with their bloatware and the firmware is not working well with it that's why.if they stop adding crap to the updates maybe by now we could of been running 4.2.2 instead of an outdated 4.1.2 if one day they release it.
honestly more than 96% of us won't and will never use any of the crap att is adding to the firmware.the only thing that comes out of that crap is many bugs.
it would of been way better if samsung supply the updates to their handsets instead of the carrier everything would be smooth easy may maybe bugs free.

Agree to every word, I think that's another reason people get iPhones, no bloatware/cr*pware and Apple handles the updates.

At&t is working closely with Samsung to lock your bootloader in the coming weeks. I heard the new update for the s 4 locks the bootloader so custom ROM's will no longer be an option, and wonder if that is why it is taking so long. If at&t locks the bootloader on this phone I will definitely be staying on custom firmware so I don't have to rely on at&t to get all of the security flaws patched when they find them.

So maybe I should root it now, instead of waiting for their update because then they will take away the option

Just yesterday I called at&t customer service. No news on jelly bean 4.2.1 for my galaxys s3. They offered me an upgrade for 200 for the galaxy s4. So let me get this right you want me to pay 200 for features that every other carrier has on their galaxy s3. Lol. To think ive been with them since 05 always upgrade bill is always paid on time. Yet I get the run around. If I gave them a run around in paying my bill. They would have no problem turning off my service and hitting me with early termination fees. So I decided today to call the BBB which took about 7 min to report them. Since every carrier has the updat but us. Thank you at&t for showing your true colors

Samsung has nothing to do with AT&T releasing the update. It's all on AT&T. I read somewhere from a Samsung csr that they have nothing to do with the update, thus meaning that it's all a big lie.

@ julieCS by the way I couldn't help but notice that your profile picture is the Canadian flag. From this point on I'm gonna assume that you are from Canada (duhh) and I wanted to ask you something. How is the galaxy s3 (sgh-i747M) working in Canada? I thought it was the same device hardware and all. And guess what? It's running on 4.1.2.. So all that "testing" is just a big fat scam. Sgh-i747 and Sgh-i747M are the same phones, and AT&T needs all that "testing" when the Canadian version didn't? Tsk tsk tsk more lies. how can two devices be the same and such a big carrier needs so much testing?
