I'm the first to get this one. Only 3MB. Just got the BMA1 update yesterday, then this one rolls out to my phone...

OK. Saw international news on release that indicated it would include multi-screen capability, a new "Paper....." app and some new screen orientation and some new swipe functionality. Can't find it on my phone. Did Sprint release not include these?

That makes two updates in a two days and this one also includes nothing important. My version is different, it reads L710VPBMB1 I have an extra B, can anyone expalin why that is?

Dunno, this one is like a small patch to the update, which is the big one that upgrades Jellybean to 4.1.2. This patch seems like minor last minute tweaks that they forgot to include in the big one.

Farsightman,

See this thread where your question is addressed.

Re: 2/27 - Samsung Galaxy S III Software Update - L710VPMB1

No, its still on 4.1.2.  The full suite update will be on 4.2.1.  Which will be released in March when the new S4 comes out.

I asked the same question yesterday:

Sprint is holding back on the premium suite for now.

Mine is VPBMB1 too. I think the original poster of the big update and this one typo'd

Re: 2/27 - Samsung Galaxy S III Software Update - L710VPMB1

OK. Reviewed comments. Appears Sprint USA has not released Premium Suite yet and reviewed comments about it being made available when GS IV is released. Can you confirm if GS III will get this package at that time?

Is the Edge Slide Zoom still disabled/gone, or did they at the least add a setting to enable/disable it?

I find it totally amateur and laughable for a software company to remove a feature rather than make it user configurable.

If they want to default to disabled, fine. But when it is a feature that is not even in the manual and I can't even find out what the name for it is, even when "Chatting" with useless Samsung "Support".

They are so useless, the guy  I was "Chatting" with argued with me that it was n ot a feature on the phone, and that it probably came from a 3rd Party App that I downloaded and was therefore unsupported.

I finally got the guy to transffer my chat and I was able to convince the Supervisor into getting a phone, to see for himself. He confirmed it did have the feature, but didn't know what it was called, and didn't know if it was removed from MA6, because he said MA6 doesn't exist. Of course now we're on MB1. I said, ok how about MB1. Again, "does not exist" Totally useless.

I admit, at first I thought it was a bug when the screen would zoom in and out almost randomly to the touch, until I realized that if you slide your finger along the edges up or down, you can zoom in/out holding the phone with just one hand.

I now use it all day every day for reading email.

It is undocumented and people were confused by it so they demanded it be removed. Stupid users. And as I said, if it is entirely removed and not User COnfigurable, then Stupid Samsung adding insult to injury.

I will not update wihtout this feature.

I will permit myself to have "Root" access. I'm tired of being controlled by Samsung. This is my 3rd Android phone, Epic, Epic Touch and now S3 and it has been the same crap from Samsung. They do not want to make the software better. They want to dump more hardware on our shores, and stockpile our dollars.
