    Discussing the subject is one thing. Continuous whining about not getting your way is a different story.

    (I'm not pointing my finger at you. I can't keep track of who has been btching the most. It was just something that stuck out in this thread.)
    Well I know you weren't talking about me, I'm fine for right now, just got ICS yesterday. There is always gonna be ing and moaning on all android forums about AT&T upgrades because they are always so long. The Captivates just got Gingerbread a few months ago and the one thing that T-Mobile did well was to get the software updates out there quickly. Seems to me AT&T would be one of the first getting the updates out there, but it seems every device that gets updated is always late on AT&T.

    At least they are keeping the complaining about it in one thread, which is what they are supposed to do.

    After my dumb AT&T rep yesterday, I got a good one today. I have used so much data setting up my new phone and downloading all my apps. I'm close to going over my data and they sent me a text that it would be $10 if I go over. I called to see if I just needed to add a GB or if it would just roll on there when I went over. The rep said he would just give me a $20 credit and that way I didn't have to worry about my data being over.

    Again, something T-Mobile would have never done, no matter how long we had been with them.

    Wow. There are a lot of impatient people acting like children in this thread.

    AT&T has always been slow to release phones and even slower to release updates. If you need to make sure that your phone will be updated right away, buy a Nexus device. Complaining on a public forum is doing absolutely nothing when it comes to getting the update released.
    Lol actually it could...I am pretty sure some AT&T reps are on here watching and taking notes

    I've been on the Galaxy Note 2 port and the newest version is working really well. Like it a lot. Plus you get some of the s pen functionality and other features that would not be on the S3 version. Works well.

    Sometimes you can get an answer about this issue on their Facebook page, but generally, it is a "we aren't sure yet" answer.

    There are a LOT of clueless people out there. It is very possible they think 4.1.2 is 4.2 since other carriers are releasing 4.1.1 as their JB release.

    Did you look at all the evidence? I've copied/pasted it here:

    AT&T Live Rep
    You: do you have any information when the 4.1 software will be released for this device
    Brian Zaricor: Actually, I do know that the update for the device is in the process of being released soon, but has not been fully announced as to a date for it will actually be getting the 4.2 update instead, and they are making sure that everything is working properly for the update before releasing it.
    You: So they are skipping the 4.1 update all together? does that mean its a long ways off?
    Brian Zaricor: Actually, it is close to being released for all devices that are getting the update, with the S III being one of them. They are working to make sure that the last touches are good to go before releasing something that may have some issues with it. That way you are able to fully able to use the device with ease.

    AT&T corporate employee (internal memo, a week ago):
    Att has just announced wednesday that jellybean 4.2os is being released in the very near future.

    @ATTCustomerCares (official Twitter handle):
    4.2OS Update for Galaxy III is available from Android. AT&T will have the update available for customers in the very near future.

    Fellow from XDA:
    I spoke with 2 different reps last night on the live chat thing & they both told me that it was gonna be 4.2. I even asked both of them 2 times "Are you sure it's gonna be 4.2 & not 4.1.2?" & both of them told me that it would be 4.2.

    I've talked to support before as well, and was told something clearly incorrect when it came to the version numbers. It is POSSIBLE, but just because you ask "are you sure about...", does not mean the rep isn't blowing smoke up your butt and just trying to satisfy the customer.

    Well, I eat my words. A typo probably occurred in the original memo (too many people posted 4.2 consecutively for them all to be blowing smoke) that convinced them it was 4.2.

    Thanks for the reason, Targon.

    I would LOVE to be wrong and for the update to end up being 4.2, but I have my doubts. The big difference between 4.1 and 4.2 in the first place is updates to the native Android apps in some cases, and adding features such as beaming video(which Samsung Allshare Cast already does). If Samsung provides its own solution for features that are in 4.2, there will be less of an incentive for Samsung to push out updates JUST for those features. There are a few other tiny improvements in 4.2 that could make their way to the S3, but I wouldn't count on seeing 4.2 and expect that 4.3 or 5 or whatever the next big update will be would show up instead.

    The updates to Gmail are the only worthwhile updates the GS3 will actually see. They need to quit making excuses, and just release JB, and update the rest later.

    What differences are there between a stock S3 with 4.1.2 and 4.2 are there? This is what I was saying in my last post. 4.2 over 4.1 seems to be MOSTLY about adding functionality that Samsung had already put in custom additions to provide. I understand that 4.2 over 4.0.4 will be a very big improvement, but once we get the official JB update to 4.1.2, will 4.2 seem like a big deal to us?

    Off course not, but AT&T wants to make it look like they're doing us a favor by holding out on 4.1 for 4.2. There must be some political reasons why they're keeping the update from us.

    AT&T has not said what version they will release. 4.1.2 over 4.1.1 in theory will give us the split screen that the Note 2 will be getting. That WOULD be worth holding out for, even if most people don't use it. This is why it would be fair if 4.1.2 was sent out only a month or 6 weeks after 4.1.1 was and there was a release delay as a result.

    That less than accurately truthful sham that smooth4lyfe posted was written on November 7th. It also says "IF Accurate"

    "November 7, 2012, 9:16 P.M., Wednesday, New York local time Although slightly overtaken by Sprint last month, looks like AT&T users will be able to get a taste of the not-so-latest version of Android Jellybean in the next couple of days. If accurate, AT&T will update its Samsung Galaxy S3 to Jelly Bean next week."

    It seems to be the educated opinion that just like waiting for a delayed train - "It'll get here when it gets here."

    Raising people's hopes with no real substantiation strikes me of something that the loser lying-obama would do.
