    Hate to tell you but premium suite has nothing to do with which version of android you are running as those features are Samsung feature. So I don't get how you feel ripped off. If you are not willing to wait root and flash a ROM that has those features baked in there are plenty out there.

    So since you are rooted, and it seems maybe you are not on a stock rom? did it do the update or not - and if not, do you get reminders to do so? Thanks!

    I am running a stock ROM with custom theme.... Skunkape walked me through how to get the notifications to stop... It worked like a charm once he walked me through it like twice... now I don't get the notifications anymore... Hope that helps.. hard for me to explain how to do it... I am not a newbie at Rooting and ROMs but I am by no means an expert who knows all the ins and outs...

    Yeah that's what I've read. Only things I've found about the update is:
    Misc bug fixes
    Voicemail application update
    SMS 3-digit support

    There doesn't seem to be any rhyme nor reason to the order the update rolls out, but we know it's gradual.

    There are a number of changes, but they're not immediately obvious: New features in 4.1.2

    Just got the update in Los Angeles a few hours ago. Immediately after installation I was surprised to see a second update was available. The second update was much smaller. Can't comment on premium suite since I don't know what that is. So far everything works but I'm checking for changes. All I know is that I now have Android version 4.1.2. I'll have to re-read the "New features in 4.1.2" thread.

    No update here. In fact, I called Sprint and (maybe I got the dumbest rep) was told that they don't know of any updates after the 4.1.1 / LJ7. All I was told of the SmartSuite update is that Sprint is in talks with Samsung because of some "problems".

    I got 4.1.2 the other day and I haven't noticed anything improved. Several things I don't like, however:

    • Bezel zooming is gone (why not make it optional?)
    • Scrolling around is now fixed up-down/left-right, no longer free-scrolling all over the screen.
    • ^---These two basically make it impossible to browse the web holding the phone in one hand.
    • Stock email app (not gmail) keeps displaying deleted email. The email is still on the server, but I've deleted it on my phone. Now there are up to 100 new emails showing every time the email refreshes. They disappear sometimes...but always come back.
    • Not entirely sure yet, but battery life seems to have suffered. Especially when signal strength is poor. I was a in bar with a crappy signal for all of 2 1/2 hours and had to put the phone in airplane mode because it was hot to the touch and had sucked more than half of the battery.

    Yes, you certainly got a dumb rep, but that seems to describe most first tier reps, for any company in any industry. But even if you got one who knew about the two recent updates, they wouldn't be able to tell you when you'll get it. That's all in the hands of some mysterious software algorithm running on Sprint's servers somewhere.

    There seem to be a fair number of people unhappy with the loss of bezel zoom (but a lot more who hated it). I've switched to Chrome, but agree it would make sense to have made it user configurable.

    I haven't seen the email issue. As a first step, you might want to try deleting the account from your phone, and recreating it.

    Battery: did you get updated to MA6, or MB1? A few people have reported battery and overheating issues with MA6, and MB1 was supposed to fix that. Most (at least on the forums) haven't noticed a change in battery life. If it continues to be a problem, the standard advice when an OTA update causes problems is, unfortunately, to do a factory reset.

    None here either. What's the timeline for everyone to have this? Seems like it's been out for weeks now...time enough for 100%, I'd've thought.

    Honestly, I don't care for this update. It doesn't have SmartSuite, and it seems to bring more problems than fixes...and my phone is running fine without it.

    I just got my GS3 last week, it did the updates to 4.1.2 a few days later, but I haven't had any problems. Battery life wasn't that good at first, but that may have been because I was using it constantly. Now I'm getting about 16 hours of on and off use before it gets to about 28%.
