    Still can't get the jelly bean look, everything looks the same , no updates for that look either.

    Looked trough all the settings - nothing. Friends say , it changes to a new look right after it is installed, didn't happen to me.
    Any suggestions ?

    There is no "new look" as Touchwiz is the main overlay still.

    I've noticed that whenever I receive a txt my notification tone cuts off halfway thru (just a simple guitar sound a few seconds long).... Kinda aggravating. Idk about call tones yet or not.

    This was an issue with ICS too. And what I did to solve this was disable the "Delete text messages after x amount" in the text message settings. Do you have that enabled? If so, turn it off and that should fix it

    Yes I do. I haven't figured out how to change it. Any luck?
    No! It seems like not everyone is having this auto correct issue as I'm barely seeing anyone else post about it. It is annoying the hell out of me to the point that I've now downloaded GoKeyboard since I cannot do without autocorrect. I'm also trying Swype for a little bit and that seems to have a little better accuracy, but still.. its ridiculous that the stock keyboard doesn't have autocorrect.

    Has anyone's Google Now voice response stopped working. It was working great yesterday, but today it only gives on-screen answers, not verbally. Anyone have any ideas?
    Is your media volume up?

    What do you mean by expanding notifications in the bar? I just always pulled down to see notifications then touched on the notification like txt or email and it took me to the app... Is there something different you can do?
    You can pinch the notification horizontally, and it will either expand or decrease in size. By expanding, you can read (short) texts/emails, and sometmes it'll even give you the option to respond (I have this for my Twitter, where it gives me the option to respond/retweet/etc)

    In my defense I just woke up, but were the security options for locking your phone removed? I could swear they used to be under the security settings. Now, I don't see any options for locking my phone other than pin lock.

    You'll need an unlocked bootloader, root and an AOSP ROM if you want a pure vanilla look unless there's a JB theme somewhere. Touchwiz was included with the latest update and hence looks the way it does.

    Ok, you've posted enough. HalizDad already responded to you with the correct answer. You still have Samsung's TouchWiz interface, so there is NO NEW THEME OR LOOK.

    Dude there is no new look Touchwiz is touchwiz you get a few new features, and project butter, google now etc. People asking what is so great about jelly Bean there are some good things the phone is quicker/smoother in some areas. Thing is the GS3 with 2gb ram The snapdragon was already fast thanks to being a high end phone, so the real effects of jelly bean are not fully felt.

    Eitherway I hated the way folders used to be that is now fixed.
    The messed up led light now works properly.
    Project butter does have an effect in certain areas
    Browser is smoother
    can now have 5 icons on lock screen not 4
    Wireless for me has a stronger reception
    love the pause using the video camera
    small changes to s calendar
    having the brightness slider in notifications
    expandable notifications work fine pinch horizontally

    Sure its not all the way perfect but this phone was pretty damn close on ICS now it is even closer

    LOVE LOVE blocking mode after you create the shortcut.

    Folks having issues factory reset and set your phone back up fixes most issues. My phone was fine after upgrade but I did a reset just incase.

    Enjoy the awesome phone you have & Jelly bean

    After installing JB in the Google Cards i setup my way to & from work for traffic. It's not anywhere near the correct route. It has me going away from my work. It's a straight shot from my house to work, yet it has me going away from my work. How do i fix this?

    I applied the Stock Jellybean theme from Nova Launcher Prime. May be an option if people want that look.

    I *LOVED* how I would get a super short vibration notice to a text message while on a call. Now, it's back to a LONG vibration, which the caller can hear, and it disrupts the conversation. Any ideas on this one?

    Horrific battery life thus far. Went from 100% at 11 AM to 23% by 4. Holy crap.

    Impressed with the speed and other subtle changes though. Hopefully the battery will improve somehow.

    My only issue after the update that's been bugging me is when I get text alerts I get a long vibrate and the sound cuts off. I factory reset before and twice since the update and still messed up and I don't get it. If I pull the battery it works good first time then no good after. Even if I turn off the vibration the alert still gets cut off. It seams the text wakes the phone and as soon as the screen comes on the alert cuts short. This happens with both my custom times and the built in one's. I may have to try a different text app or call Verizon up if that don't work.

    On another note the max overall volume seams a bit lower to me. And I really miss the notification bubbles that used to pop up on the lock screen that you could swipe to go right to the text or missed call or whatever.

    Here's something that's come up. I use a basic Droid eye wallpaper for my lock screen and I've noticed that now I have faded blotches on the left side of it. When I look at this wallpaper in the gallery or set it for my home screens it doesn't show up. Just for the lock screen....

    My lock screen picture is also faded on the left side. It's a picture of my dog, and she looked fine before JB on the picture, but now the left side is faded like i left the picture sitting out in the sun. But it's almost like a line through the middle, vertically.

    Never mind I just found the answer 2 pages back. Turning off auto delete old messages fixes my alert issue though I never seamed to have that issue with ics.

    If you pinch to zoom on the notification you can collapse or expand them. To see more or less of the info on the notification. Originally it was designed to see them expanded with a two finger drag down but they must have altered that at some point.

    It looks to me like what you guys are calling "problems" are simply the normal things in JB. Except for the battery life, everything seems normal to me. I have a Note 2 and just helped my daughter install this update her S3. It looks like my Note 2 now. You will get the app issues worked soon and all will be well soon. After a few days to get the bugs worked out, try Apex launcher and a few new JB apps and widgets and I'm sure you will love your S3 even more than before.
    Patience my friends,

    I've had trouble with Foxfi after the update. Foxfi has been somewhat temperamental since they've switched over to a paid version for whatever reason. After the Jelly Bean update, my connection to the hotspot has been very unstable. The connection itself is fine but I frequently got page load errors, unable to connect, etc. all while Windows shows a perfectly fine internet connection. I am also wary that it makes Verizon's hotspot app pop up now.

    Also, this is kind of a big deal to me but probably not to most is that I was able to set my phone to vibrate only when silent. Unless I'm missing something, it's either vibrate and sound together or no vibrate at all, i.e. if you don't check the option, the phone won't notify you that you have a message when on silent.

    I like to have audio only with no vibrations if possible but would like vibrations for discrete situations. I find getting vibrations annoying when texting.

    I think the wifi problem is the biggest deal though. I've actually gone back to my Thunderbolt for the time being until the wifi issue gets hammered out.

    Have you gone back into the settings for vibrate pattern? Under sound menu. May have reset? Mine has always been a long vibrate but I know you can set a custom or different pattern.

    Anybody having problems with the stock texting app? Voice recognition isn't working, words aren't completing and the predictive words aren't popping up sometimes.

    I don't even see the widget anymore in my list which is odd. I thought maybe they added a toggle switch in notifications but there is nothing there either.
    The widget still works for me. In fact I noticed the upgrade seemed to fix the redraw issue I saw when going from portrait to landscape when using Nova Prime as my launcher. I went to see if it was still listed, and it is missing from the list on my phone as well. I did have it on one of my screens prior to the upgrade, I guess that's why its still available.

    Only real issue I have is after you select an app to always respond to a click, it pops up a message telling you that you can change default apps by going to application manager and clearing all. It gives you that message every time, and the first 2 or 3 times I saw it, I thought it was an error message, so I actually did what it said, clearing all my defaults.

    It was only a few times later that I realized it was a "helpful" message. I'd love to be able to turn that off.
