    Default Two new S3s' with different firmware. Help.

    So I ordered both phones (wife and i) through Amazon. I one arrives a day earlier and it's my wife's. Her firmware is 4.0.4

    Mine arrives with 4.1.1 so as much as I check for an update on hers, and nothing appears.

    What should I do??

    Thanks.

    Wait.
    The phone still works.. Eventually the system will push the update to the 4.0.4 phone.

    Do this to get the update right now, it might take a few times to make it work but it should eventually. Go to settings>application manager>select all apps by scrolling all the way to the right>scroll down to Google Services Framework>then clear data and force stop>back out and go to system update>and select update firmware and Samsung software it should say last update was in 1969. If it doesn't work the first time keep doing it.

    Hmm thanks!
    Why would this happen on the same phone, and same company bought at the same time??

    It depends on how long it's been in the box and in the warehouse. If an update comes out while a phone is sitting in the warehouse, it will not get any updates. The other phone may be a different lot. And may have just come from the factory and is currently up to date.
