Well about a week ago I saw that Sprint was going tibe the first to roll out the new Android update. As a lover of the android system, and the Galaxy S 3, I was stoked. But I still have not gotten the update. And everyone on this forum seems to have gotten it already. I called customer service, but all they said was that I would be getting it shortly. Does it take a few days or am I just getting shafted?
My S3 just got the JB update about 45 minutes ago so it's only a matter of time. And don't forget that there are quite a few people who did the update manually. I just waited until the system pushed it to my phone.
Updates are pushed over the air (OTA) to devices in stages over a 3 week period. To my knowledge the devices are randomly selected so some people will get the update immediately and others may have to wait a few days. Here is a link to the Galaxy S3 Software Updates blog below. Hopefully this was helpful. Enjoy your device!
