    When will the at&t version of the s3 get kitkat?? I'm tired of waiting. Any chart I see shows other variants of the s3 but not at&t. Anybody know when we will see the update?

    I'd just as soon *never* see KK what with the new rules that cripple external sdcard usage plus the overheating problem and other problems being reported on the S4 and S5. I'm considering rooting and disabling the updater.

    Well this sucks. Guess I shall be upgrading from my s3. Was hoping for an update but that does make sense. It is true that old phones go out of date.

    Might be pretty soon. The Samsung Galaxy S3 mini is coming with kitkat installed already.

    KitKat being downloaded now on my AT&T S3 I747 , 358.16 MB...check for update in "About device " if you haven't got a notification. Its an OTA update, do not know if Kies has it yet. Good luck and lets hope it's a stable one. Here is the link with all the pertinent info. Samsung Galaxy S3 gets updated to KitKat on AT&T's network

    For all those that got the notice and installed it, please let us know how it performs. I'm praying they resolved the battery drain issue from other carrier versions.. Looks like it's packed with lots of cool stuff though !

    UPDATE (literal): Mine just updated too.. seems like it boots faster.. haven't noticed any major differences.. dialer looks the same as does the other apps.. Noticed a bunch of updates streamed in right after the update was completed.. So far so good. Have yet to have any problems during or after an update and made sure the battery was 100% during the update process too

    Installed this afternoon, very impressed. Looks the same, new features not obvious. But it runs fast, no lag, very smooth. And I think battery is better. A great improvement that does not require learning a whole new interface.

    I updated this morning, working ok so far. Not much difference in looks. But I do not like the new location Settings thing. Just to turn on GPS is a PIA compared to the way it was.

    The update went great. I did the factory reset, after reading how much better the phone would be. I think the battery life improved after the factory reset. I another thing I am seeing is make sure in settings that the Nearby devices is turned on when reconnecting to the pc, I was having trouble with the pc seeing the phone after the reset .
