    Would you rather have a screwed up phone? Because that's what happens they rush updates that are not ready
    Well, yes and no. Sprint managed to get two updates of 4.1.2 out (one without multi-window, the second with) before Verizon got one update out, and Verizon's appears to be buggy as Hell. I think Verizon's delay has more to do with their desire to load more and more bloatware on their devices than it does with adequate testing. Whatever, it's certainly not because Verizon tested more thoroughly.

    Verizon's delays are because its simply not a high priority for them. Bloatware is only a small part of it.

    Maybe you'd like them to release it before it's ready, when it still has bugs that haven't been fixed?

    I've been looking periodically on XDA, and I've yet to see one for the i747m. There's a few AOKP/CM10 I believe, but no TouchWiz based ROMs AFAIK.

    I don't get why you are all in a rush for this. Yes new features are awesome but are you all in a hurry to make your phones lag like the S 4? The S3 is very solid phone now. Almost every phone that gets major software updates slows the phone down and introduced new bugs. This was especially the case with the original Galaxy S (all varieties, I had the Fascinate and talked to a lot of captivate owners) and S2. Can give other examples too. At minimum it takes another update to get the device in good shape but sometimes like the Fasinate it never gets better.

    I'm not saying you shouldn't want updates but rushing them is a bad idea

    Since Samsung is counting on the success of S4 models running OS 4.2.2, I think they will not update S3 models to OS 4.2.2 until a new version for S4 is officially released. So, I don't expect to see 4.2.2 official release probably until end of the year. Samsung also planing to release Note 3 which most likely be updated to a newer version before S3 get updated. (Just my opinion)
