Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III rear

Last month Verizon Galaxy S III owners began receiving an update that brought with it a number of nifty new features, including Multi-Window and the ability to bill app purchases to a Verizon Wireless account. Unfortunately, some Galaxy S III users ran into some other, not-so-exciting additions, including issues with connectivity and battery life. Verizon today confirmed to Android Central that "a small number" of S III owners have had problems with the I535VRBMD3 update, and as a result, the big red carrier has decided to put it on hold for now. Verizon's full statement is as follows:

"A software update was recently pushed to the Samsung Galaxy S III, and while a majority of customers downloaded and installed the update successfully, a small number were negatively impacted. As a result the software update push has been postponed as a precaution for customers. We will notify them when a new software update is available for download."

The I535VRBMD3 update is pretty big deal for Galaxy S III owners on Verizon, so it's a bit of a disappointment to see that some users have run into issues after installing it. It's not clear when the push will resume, so for now it looks like those folks that have been "negatively impacted" by the update will have to hold tight and maybe keep a charger or extra battery pack nearby. At least we now know that Verizon is aware of the issues, though, and is working on a new update that'll (hopefully) be bug-free. Have any of you Verizon Galaxy S III owners had problems with this new I535VRBMD3 update?
