T-Mobile Galaxy S III Pebble Blue

Time to add another Galaxy S III to the list of models that've had their universal search functionality removed. T-Mobile today began pushing out an update to its version of the Galaxy S III, and along with a few bug fixes, the new software is also said to remove the device's local search ability. The update is version T999UVLH2. The brief changelog provided by T-Mobile is as follows:


  • Android version 4.0.4/Software version T999UVLH2
  • Approved 8/16/2012

New Feature

  • AllShare Cast


  • Resolved the error, ‘Enter MAC address' after entering the correct MAC address in the Mobile HotSpot configuration page if the MAC address entered did not contain the colons (:) or spaces.
  • Resolved issue where the contents of a Home screen folder would be rearranged alphabetically after a reboot.
  • Resolved issue where the name does not populate when trying to add a contact with NameID information, you must manually add.

T-Mobile customers that are rocking a Galaxy S III and want to install this update can do so by going into Settings > About device > Software update to check for it on-device or by loading up Samsung's Kies computer software. We've already seen AT&T and Sprint's Galaxy S III's receive updates to remove universal search, and while it's certainly a bummer to see the T-Mobile variant get the same treatment, it's also not terribly surprising. If you've got a T-Mobile Galaxy S III, be sure to give us a shout in the comments below if you decide to install this latest update!
