if its like when they pushed ICS for the gs2 then you could be waiting for a few weeks took me over a month to get it and the upgrade tanked my phone from a good phone to a pile of crap phone. i upgraded to the gs3 hoping they wouldnt try and update the OS anytime soon and here we are again. I like the way my phone is now so i probably wont download the upgrade until they fix all the bugs im sure it will have.

by Monday, 4.2.0 will be out when the Nexus 4 is announced.  There's always the next best thing out there and it will always be that way with Android....always pushing the envelope.  Hopefully, Google's sdk for OEMs upgrades that was announced with Jelly Bean will expedite this in the future.  4.1.1 is quite a treat and large upgrade over 4.0.4, 4.1.2 doesn't really bring much else to the game....mainly bug fixes and not features.  So no need to want for something that isn't all that exciting.  Who knows what Monday will bring......

Anyone that gets this update, please post what your baseband reads in the About Phone menu in Settings.

Yes I agree.  I guess its just how Android is.  If you want the latest updates use CM10 or get a Nexus phone.  Unfortunately by using CM10 you lose all the touchwiz features.

Bug fixes could be big...depending on the bug.

In what order is the update being pushed?  Curious to know how long I will have to wait.

Hey Sprint, thanks for rejecting my post about how to pull the update manually.  I didn't violate any of your community guidelines, there is/was no warranty voiding software posted.  Sorry for trying to help people on this board.  I guess you'd rather have people whining about ridiculous issues with their phones, than people that actually know how to help others.  Sad to see this community reduced to this.

sincerely yours,
