Hey, I just checked for s/w updates yesterday and suddenly a notification popped up saying"acces to s/w updates will be provided to the users in the order in which they request it.Try later".
Such a notification usually pops up before a new android update is a about to arrive....
Could this mean android 4.2.2 is rolling out for galaxy s3?

Unlike in WM, when you do a ROM update it doesn’t do a clean install and Its common to see conflicts with drivers and other things from the old ROM that was stored in the Cache partition.
But before you do the clear cache partition and hard reset try
Settings>Wi-Fi> (tap your work router)>forget.
Scan for the router again and set it up again.
If it still don’t work, then you have to do the CC & HR mentioned above.
Make sure your contacts are set to sync with your google account.
Backup your what’s app conversations.

I not saying that it is, but it sounds as though you corrupted the EFS folder during the update on your phone.
The EFS folder contains some important but basic info related to your device identity like Wi-Fi address, Bluetooth MAC address, product code, and the main IMEI address (nv_data.bin).
Now if this EFS partition is accidently corrupted then your phone’s IMEI no. will erased and those things I mentioned above will no longer be recognized by your carrier.
IF this is what has happened then your only option would be to take it to a Samsung Repair Centre.
