Same here still on 4.1.2. and i got the Galaxy Watch thinking it should only take a couple of days once again Sprint has shown us how much they do not care about their customers. i cant wait until my contract is up. wouldn't be so bad if Sprint keep us up to date on anything. a time line of how they were going to release the OTA would of been nice.
You need to realize that there are millions of s3 phones out there. Each one has to download a fairly large file. Be patient it will happen. It could be a week or two.
Why do million of S3 phones have anything to do with downloading a large file? Millions of S3 phones are still hitting their 'Check now' button to attempt to upgrade and connect to Samsung anyway. Their web servers can serve a million S3 phones their update all at once if they want to. This is not a technical issue, but rather a business decision, or a fear from Samsung of sending out bad code that does not work. Basically, Samsung has to honor their warranty on these existing S3 phones out there, and as a result, they are slow to update until they know for sure their code is working well.
I sure hope this update has the bugs worked out. My GS3 is flawless as is so before I update I want to make sure its not a "downgrade". Remember the old adage "if it ain't broke don't fix it", Rick.
