It is designed to fix the bugs in the mentioned areas above, are you in a LTE market?

Re: what was todays GS3 update about??

Huh.  I wondered what the update was about, too.  I just did it this morning and noticed my battery life took a HUGE nose dive since.  I've barely picked it up today (light texting, mostly) after charging over night and I'm sitting at 30% batterly life 9 hours after unplugging from the charger.  I used to get about 1-1/2 days of battery w/heavier usage.  Also, if it was supposed to fix some SMS bugs, I can't see it.  In fact, I've had more message fail to send today than ever before.  Ridiculously annoying.  And I'm not in an LTE area, either.  Can't say I'm impressed.

JuiceDefender Ultimate!  My battery was no where near as good before the update, I installed that and now my batter lasts from 8am-12midnight.  Texting, FB, phone calls, etc.

Okay... how do I revert back to before the update. I took my phone off the plug 2 hours ago and havn't touched it and I am at %68 battery WTF gives?!?!

It's definitely just a software patch, but it has effectively killed the awesome battery life I was getting as well as causing more of my sms messages to fail to send.  I'm extremely dissapointed mainly because of the battery issue as they had to fix that once, and now a new update seemingly undoes that?  whats the point of rolling out updates like this if it causes more problems than it fixes? I just want to restore my phone to the state it was in last week.

*smacks forehead*  Just went to a football game where I tried to text my daughter repeatedly to make sure she was ok.  Message after message failed to send.  Also randomly started roaming while *sitting in the same spot I had been for over an hour*!  How, Sprint, does that happen?  Not to mention my battery is shot.  Again.  And to think I traded in my Evo 4g b/c the battery life sucked monkey butt.  This is worse.  😕

My SGS3 must be some kind of anomaly cuz 2 days after receiving the update I've had the best battery life yet, 3 hours 51 minutes of screen on time before the battery dropped below 10%. Overnight if I charge it then leave it off the charger all night it will drop a total of 4% with 4G on.
