BlueLeopard, 03 Jan 2015Nope, it can get 4.4.2. Weird bit true.@ BlueLeopard
Sorry, but you are wrong. The S3 i9300 never has, and never will, get KitKat firmware.
On the pane to the left of these posts click on Specifications and then under OS you will see that it is upgradable to Jelly Bean v4.3
If you don't believe GSMArena then go to Sammmobile:
who also state that the i9300 will never receive KitKat.
If you don't believe GSMArena or Sammobile then head over to Samsung's own servers:
There you will find firmware for every country that Samsung has released firmware for. Not ONE country has ever received KitKat on the i9300
The parts are damn expensive.. my LED screen went out & now I might as well buy a new phone for as much as the screen costs!

What is even stranger is that the Samsung firmware for the i9300 never went above v4.3, yet you claim to have v4.4.2.0032 on your phone.
Something isn't right, and I think it is YOU!
Android 4.4.2.0032 messed up. Phone shows EST time & calendar, but alarms go off 6 hours early. Changes notification sounds randomly and none of the notifications go off. WTH?

Samsung should put out a update for this phone to maybe like 4.4.2 kitkat at least they shouldn't be like Apple an leave the other devices in the dark :D

3 network is switching off unlimited tethering in January, don't get caught out or else your phone bill will go through the roof.
actually I charge my battery thrice a day. which is not favourable all
at least twice would have been ok
yes about the cm 12 5.0.2 at first i installed alpha version which was very buggy with lots of issues. now the latest is beta 3 unofficial. u can check xda forums. its very stable (camera, wifi, 3g) i get 280 mb free ram but the only problem is fast battery drainage. other than that its perfect
Phone i ever use
samsung corby 2,glxy y,china's phone ,glxy trend,bb 9720,glxy core,glxy s4,glxys4 mini,ip4,glxy s5,oppo neo5, htc one x, Now.. samsung galaxy s3 =).. very good phone!!!
I have this phone nearly for two years now and it never EVER let me down. I have with Three UK network with unlimited data and unlimited thetering and it is just brilliant. My data usage is somewhere between 40 - 100 gb per month (seriously!!!) and it is still doing it's job perfectly. To be honest, sometimes i feel really sorry for my poor cell phone. Kids games, guitar pro, dash cam, music, videos - all of this on daily basis, heavily used and no complaints. This cell phone will handle anything. I think that i will feel very sorry if i will have to buy myself a new phone. Thank you Samsung!!!
