If I had to guess,

Sprint already got it
Tmo next
USCellular
AT&T
Verizon

I'm 95% sure Verizon will be last. We always are tongue.gif

Makes me happy... I want my update on US Cellular! Edit: Any idea how long Samsung will support Galaxy S3? With Android it seems top level devices get updates held off until they are not that high end anymore, and then they are just forgotten. Even if I get this update, will I ever get the 2nd Jelly Bean update? Even if I do... I don't think that I will get the one after that, and that will probably be when I root and install a rom.

ALso... I took my phone out of the case and think I'm going to leave it that way. I have insurance, so if it really gets killed, I only have to pay $100 to get a new one. But, with Gorilla Glass, it is pretty strong and not likely to break. I also have a Spigen Steinheil Ultra Nano CLEAR to add a bit of extra protection. The back of my phone, I'm like "Meh" because honestly, it is very thin plastic that wouldn't be expensive to replace.

Also, I really, really like the way it feels in my hand versus with a case. It is more rounded, light, and almost river pebble shaped. No reason to get something so sexy to just cover it up!

Seeing as how much of a crapstorm Samsung heard when they denied the OG Galaxy S the ice cream sandwich update, we'll be good for quite some time. Realistically there isn't a weak point here. With how many they sold, they practically have to keep it updated or they will piss many people off.

Lets see:
2GB RAM - probably the biggest thing. This should mean we're good for many more releases!
16/32GB internal storage - we're set space wise
Snapdragon S4 - de facto these days, and its still blisteringly quick. Should be enough power for a couple years to come

Yeah I'm not too worried. Typically IMO for updates,

Motorola is almost always the fastest out the gates with updates, but doesn't like supporting their old stuff (DX2 and Droid 3 are never got a major version update...)
HTC is fairly quick, but takes forever to get carrier approval for some reason (even ask Inc2 and Thunderbolt owners, according to HTC their updates have been ready since June...haven't got OTA yet though).
Samsung isn't super fast to push them out, but it seems they're gonna put more work into supporting old stuff.
Asus is quick to push them out, and so far hasn't dropped support (OG Transformer gets JB...)
LG is slow as balls if they choose to update at all. They better start changing this attitude if they're gonna be competitive.

That's my take anyway. I've had all 3 of the "big 3" manufacturers. If you include my family we've had 1 Motorola, 2 HTCs (Inc2 and Rezound), and 2 Samsungs (SGS3, GNex).

ok, so i rooted my phone, and tried a few different roms, but didn't like them. I tried flashing back to stock using this method and using the VRALHD build http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1762709 and it worked except for updates... OTA says there are no updates even though my mom who has the same phone does have a newer version than me. I also tried kies, and it says your device does not support software upgrading via kies. I'm just worried that when the official JB update comes I won't be able to get it.

I flashed the VRALF2 build and OTA and kies updates both work.

Well chaps, apparently the official JB got leaked for VZW. Been using it for about 4 hours now. Nothing really has changed with the exception of Google Now.

Don't get to excited thumb.gif

Sony MH1C (labeled Mobile Phone Repair Part Replacement - vendor Frontier Telecom)

Stumbled on this looking for black earbuds with a better than OEM mic whose smart buttons work with this phone. The apple stuff under same CTIA standard doesn't seem to work with full functionality. I couldn't find.. pretty much anything secondary market. I haven't recieved a call with these on, but I've read that function works for pause/ff mapped button as standard. The volume buttons work as normal. There's a fourth button nonfunctional on this phone. There may be a way to map it. I haven't looked into it.

I did notice a significant increase in audio quality from stock buds. I'm not an audiophile and didn't buy them for that purpose. Head-fi is heaping praise on these though. Forum link to that site for a more informed opinion; Longish Head-fi thread.

The bad. The cable is irritating. Google J-cord if you don't already know what that is.

Not so bad.. I payed $20.90 for them earlier this week. They are now $24.90 from same vendor and will probably rise in price.

Um... Does anybody else have this slight annoyance. My volume rocker button is a tiny bit loose, just enough so when my phone vibrates the button also vibrates. I'm not sure if I should get warranty for such a minute problem, honestly.

Nope I haven't had that or any other issue with mine, and that's not one I've heard of either. If it bugs you and you can get it fixed or replaced why not? or you could get a gel case that covers the back and sides of the phone which should keep the buttons from vibrating!

Something like this:

Link is for the Clear version of the Picture, I have the Blue one and have been very happy with it, only thing was that the hole for the Micro USB connector that you use to charge the phone was to small and I had to use my rotary tool to make it bigger.
