I dont understand why im not getting jellybean update on my s3? I have tried samsung software Kies and on wifi as well but still no update.im ztill stuck with sthpid ice cream sandwich. Im thinking of replacing my phone with some nexus model atleast i will get updates quickly. Any suggestions guys? Why no updates for some s3 handsets.i have s3 in black color running ics 4.0.4.
Got mine today and what a great phone it is! Got it for 29990 from ebay.in which is almost 6k cheaper than the retail price. I was using a galaxy SL and migrated all my contacts, call logs and messages in a breeze. All my installed apps too got transferred the moment I logged in with my google account. Great screen, amazing speed and response, very intuitive. Since I have an iPad already I didn't opt for the iPhone5 and no regrets for buying this. Had various options like xperia XL, xperia P, HTC one X and one S etc. but I made a good choice of buying the S3 which is a truly innovative smartphone currently.

Anthony, 04 Jan 2013It comes in handy if you want to run 2 browser's in multi window mode.Have you used Opera b4?
If you haven't, you've been missing out a lot!
Opera can open as many webpages as much as you wanted in one Windows and ability to run or mask as ie and firefox
