    Unacceptable that a phone this major has to wait 6 months to get an update. Just saw the release of that premuim suite for the S3. Whatever to that. My nexus 7 32gig got 3 updates since i got it. Verizon is a joke. My next phone will be a Nexus. Tired of waiting verizon's slow asses. Bloatware after bloatware is what we can expect when 4.1 drops.

    I don't know... When my Bionic got Ics after a long, long, long wait, my phone had all sorts of problems. They didn't clear up with a factory reset, either. Buying the S3 cleared them all up!

    I like the way this phone works now, so I'm not that anxious to get Jelly Bean. Just a thought, although I know most people won't share my viewpoint!

    Not sure I care to get it either. Not waiting on the edge of my chair.

    The only reason I was wanting it was my phone kept freezing. After many app removals I finally found the problem. The stock Internet browser was causing it. I'm hoping the jb update clears it.

    This, to me, not necessarily confirms the Friday the 14th scenario, but certainly makes me feel a bit more confident. I am checking OTA three times a day instead of my usual two.

    There's certainly no doubt that it's coming and will be arriving fairly soon.

    If you like to check regularly, here's the page that Verizon revised just before issuing each of the last two updates. You can see that it still has info on the last update for now.

    That link is for the current version that is out, not Jelly Bean. When you click "Benefits of Software Upgrade" it lists IMM76D.I535VRALHE which is the latest build that is available.

    Yep...that's what the guy said...He said that is the page they've been using to say when there's an update available...As in they should (based on history) update THAT page again just before JB comes out.

    Maybe they're just fixing their mistakes...Like calling Google Now, Google Plus and putting up a pic showing on-screen buttons...Worst case is they got hacked and there's no update coming anytime soon.

    I downloaded and installed Kies just in case, do you folks think that Verizon will allow you to upgrade that way? I believe all other upgrades were OTA.

    Kies has a note, when the device is plugged in that says, "your firmware version is not supported to update firmware via Kies".

    The AT&T version showed that error about "your firmware version is not supported to update via Kies", right up until the update was available. So, that is the message you will see until the update goes out.

    Did anyone get the version of JB it was supposed to be before the PDF got reverted? Irritating Verizon.

    Edit: Nevermind, just saw the PDF and it's the VRBLK3 build.
