    I'm currently using the Verizon S3, and whenever I manually check for updates via Settings-> About device-> software update-> check new I get a return error "service unavailable: check for system updates under settings > about device when service is available."

    I've tried limiting the phone to CDMA (a fix that previously worked for the HTC thunderbolt), which didn't work.
    I've tried waiting it out (for a week now) and nothing has popped up.

    I've checked under device settings to make sure that I am connected to the network and its working and everything, the updater just doesn't work.

    A new SIM card was the only thing that worked for me to fix the problem you described.

    I was getting this error last week, I inserted my sons sim card and restarted my phone. Turned my phone back off and reinserted my sim card and it started working again.

    I have come across this same issue with a galaxy s5 from Verizon. Update service unavailable.

    What I did was change the date and time and unchecked auto date and time. I made sure I was in the right time zone manually.

    The update worked immediately afterwards.
