C Spire has revealed in its official forums that the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for its Galaxy S III is now going out over the air in phases. Customers can check for the over the air update by heading into Settings > About phone > System updates. Alternatively, C Spire says that users can grab the update using Samsung's Kies software on their Mac or PC.

Once the update dust settles and C Spire Galaxy S III owners are on Jelly Bean, they'll find the usual JB goodies like Google Now and expandable notifications as well as some new preinstalled apps, a handful of new widgets and an increase in MMS message size to 1MB.
