I have gone to the trouble of downloading Kies (77.4 Mb! Just to connect your phone to a PC... That's disgraceful. No wonder real power users avoid it), onto an old laptop I don't use anymore. (I'm not ruining my PC with that Bloatware).
Anyway, when I connected my phone to Kies I get the following....

This is the latest firmware

and underneath it shows:

Current firmware version PDA:LIB/PHONE:LIB/CSC:LI1 (XEO)
Latest firmware edition PDA:LIB/PHONE:LIB/CSC:LI1 (XEO)

It doesn't say anything about 'no longer able to update using kies',and shouldn't; because if you have flashed your phone correctly you will have the Official Samsung Firmware on your phone which is always upgradable. Anyway, I don't believe you get that message, it doesn't make sense. It's getting to the point where I think you are making this up as you go along.

Flashing any of the Galaxy range of phones with Odin is quick and painless. I've done it so many times now I can flash a phone in less than 10 minutes. That's not boasting, I'm just pointing out how quick and easy it is. I have successfully flashed at least a dozen phones, (i9000 and i9300), without any of the problems you claimed to have had.

When you say 'Not being able to update via Kies',what exactly do you mean?
You can't update it because you already have the latest Firmware.
What message do you get displayed when you connect your phone to Kies? If it is 'Your phone has the latest Firmware', or something like that (I don't remember because I refuse to have that crap on my PC), then it is upgradable with that Crapware.
Explain?

You guys always complaining about JB download/update on gs3.
Why don't you buy the bigger brother gn II directly with JB version from onset.

> In reply to ramki.ch @ 2012-10-06 16:07 from K6uF - click to readthe LTE stands for Long Term Evolution which is 4g network. It's waaay much faster than 3g. Not all carriers worldwide has 4g yet and even here in Singapore, only 1 of the 3 local carriers has full islandwide 4g network.

the other 2 only has 4g network at certain places, mainly the airport and city area. When not on 4g netwrok, it will switch to 3.5g.

in terms of speed, i'll quote from someone

"there are 3 levels of 3G as shown in the status bar. "3G" is the slowest level. "H" is faster. "H+" is the fastest 3G level. Of course 4G is even faster than H+ and it will show as "4G" "

Normal reasonable smartphone owners of ANY kind should just be against trolling.
