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.

Re: Samsung galaxy s3 jelly update 4.1.2

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"
