AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III Pebble Blue

The Jelly Bean update for AT&T's version of the Samsung Galaxy S III was originally made available back at the beginning of December 2012. At the time, though, the update was only released through Samsung's Kies computer software, meaning that many AT&T Galaxy S III owners that don't frequently check blogs for information on updates may not have known about the update. The good news is that the update will soon become more widespread, as AT&T has confirmed to Engadget that it will start rolling the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update out over the air to Galaxy S III users today. Galaxy S III owners will need to be on a Wi-Fi connection to install the update.

When AT&T first announced the Galaxy S III's Jelly Bean update in December, it said that the software includes new features like Blocking Mode and a Pop-Up Play update that allows for the picture-in-picture window to be resized, as well as some camera tweaks like a low-light photo mode. Those are on top of the goodies that come with any bump up to Jelly Bean, such as Google Now and enhanced notifications. This Jelly Bean update is clearly a big one for the Galaxy S III, and any users on AT&T that are still running Ice Cream Sandwich should definitely keep an eye out for the update notification. How many of you AT&T Galaxy S III folk are already on Jelly Bean? If you are, how's it treating you?

Michael Moore That's why i try and go far the international version on most popular phones. With no branding you are more likely to get more updates in a timely fashion. Depending on the manufacturer

Angel Jewels
Angel Jewels I got my Jelly Bean without going through Kies....but its quirky. When you turn off your phone you lose some settings on certain apps. They are aware of the issue and say they are going to come out with an updated version "soon"

Antonio Vazquez weird how custom roms have it way early as well, not everyone roots their phone but the ones that do, do it for this reason. to get updates FASTER
Donald White
Donald White Well, I am NOT trying to hear about no poppy S3...What about the ORIGINAL Note...Give us some JellyBean...That is why Android people ROOT their devices.. So they don't have to wait for the next update to get the last update...
Chris Baham
Chris Baham See... this is whats stupid about Android. Everybody rolls out updates for different phones on different services at different times. With Apple, you get the update when it comes out. Simple as that. Unless your device is old and won't support it but it all rolls out to everybody at the same time.
