No they haven't started pushing the update yet...we've already been waiting way too long anyway for this update and when my contract is up next month I'll only be using the iphone or the a pure google phone...on a different service at that. SPRINT may be cheap but not by much and there is a world of difference as far as quality which the other major companies dominate sprint in easily. By releasing that update today or at the very least responding as to whether this is the date or not, that would've tremendously boosted brand loyalty as well as custmer service among many users.
I actually do work on the android OS for a living so me wanting the update has nothing to do with the update itself but so my team and I can re rerelease OFFICIAL 4.3 into a smooth running rom.sure we have other 4 3 roms but the official would be nice. And there's nothing wrong with the iphone at all. I dont like the direction samsung is going with them announcing a new phone per week and they're slready planning a few more high end devices... and it wouldn't be an issue if they didn't suck at supporting and updating their older models. Gs3 has already been pushed to the wayside while Apple continues to support their older devices as long as they can.
Thanks for the post! We haven't made any official announcements on Android 4.3 for the Galaxy S III. All software upgrade news will be posted on our forum for the Galaxy S III which is available via https://community.sprint.com/baw/community/buzzaboutwireless/phones-and-devices/samsung/samsung_gala....
I would suggest frequenting that link every once in a while.
Thanks for the message!

That's why Samsung came out and stated the S3 was getting skipping 4.2 and going 4.3??? Or are you saying date's haven't been announced??? We all know there is a major lacking of internal communications because we use to get at least a projected Q1/Q2/Q3/Q4 for releases but now its silence....how about this get the information to the public about why its being held up and be more transparent about things and you might retain customers...
