Thank goodness, that Samsung swype-esque keyboard is terrible. I already installed the Swype Beta, but updates are always welcome! Can't wait for LTE in Nashville!

1. Will applying this update wipe all user data and reset the phone to factory settings?

2. I also have Swype beta already installed on my phone. Will this cause any problems?

To answer 1, updates of this nature should NOT erase any user data.

To be a bit more broad, i have yet to see any OTA update wipe a device of user data.

But if the update is interrupted or a problem occurs its possible it could brick a device or require a factory reset on your end to fix any bugs..

But that rarely happens.

Re: 9/19 - Samsung Galaxy S III Software Update - L710VPLI3

With regards to Swype. I would recommend removing the beta before installing the update. Swype has already gone on record in the past that the Beta versions will cause issues with the built-in versions on phones. I would assume there would be no difference here with this update.

Absolutely uninstall the Beta.  Been there, done that.  They don't like one another.

By the way....anyone heard of a Sprint download yet?  I've seen a few AT&T over on XDA.

I was going to let other people install and test it before i do.

I got bad results on my GS2 with a lot of Samsung updates. So with my S3 im more careful.

Anyone seen this update yet?  I haven't (just checked again).

Was the announce pre-mature?

Same here, I'm still running gingerbread on my Epic Touch. "If it's ain't broken don't fix (update) it", at least not until I'm sure its fine.
