    Default Samsung announced KitKat will come to Galaxy S3

    So it is confirmed that the s3 will get kit Kat support from Sammy. Question is, will Vz release the update and will it be in a timely manner? My bet is we'll see a poorly done update by June. What say you?

    I think that is a good guess.

    Lol, might have a point or two there. It's funny, in a rather sad way, that when a phone reaches a certain age VZn will seemingly "encourage" you upgrade/buy another phone via OTAs that cause problems. I'm not a conspiracy theorist but my last phone was HTC Tbolt. Just sayin.

    That's so funny and true. My wife had the tbolt and they let her upgrade to the s3 when the s3 was a few months old.

    I personally will not be updating to KitKat as this will break my WiFi tethering.

    Here is the real question: How long will it take the good devs to strip Knox out of the update so i can run it on my unlocked bootloader?

    It's all about competition - my sister lives out in BFE and there's only Time Warner Cable - it's $70/month just for Internet.

    Time Warner offers service for $35 but not in "my area". The house in the front and both next to me have TW. I live in a duplex and cannot get service here. Arghhhhhh

    I agree. It's amazing how many problems people have after updates, or just general usage. I had the camera flash thing...did what some said here to fix it and wala no more flash. Life is just not that difficult.

    True. If it were not for the nice people in these forums to help I wouldn't know much about phones. And I have helped a lot of people also and seemed like a king to them. Lol

    I think I'm eligible for an upgrade in June, therefore I will most likely have the S5 before the S3 update even comes out

    Nice. My wife has the s3 and she cracked the screen. She got a replacement and after a couple months the home button is barely working. You have to push very hard. So she is getting either the note 3 or S5

    Has anyone heard when the 4.4 update is coming for Verizon?

    The 4.4 update for the S3 hasn't even come out for unlocked devices yet, and there's no announcement on dates of future updates from Samsung.
    Anyway, the hope is that it will come within the next few (6 is a few, right?) months

    I just got a 2nd Jellybean update a few days ago. I was looking for the Kitkat update online and I read somewhere that the Galaxy S3 might not even get it through Verizon. Who knows if that's true or not? It doesn't seem to be anything substantial anyway.....

    The update you got was to add roaming ability on the Telus network in Canada. We're probably going to be waiting a while yet for KitKat.

    I agree! One day I can read that it is a go. The next day, canceled. The next day, a go. Yesterday, a headline read that it is canceled, bet reading the article, it states that it's canceled in other countries, but still a go, in the US. \_0_/
