Some Canadian Samsung Galaxy S III owners get their Android 4.1 update a day early
Last week, we passed along the news from Samsung Canada that owners of the Samsung Galaxy S III in the country would start receiving the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update on December 3rd. But as it turned out, some owners of the device on Canadian carriers Rogers, TELUS, Bell and Virgin have received a notification that the update has already landed on their device a day early and is ready to be downloaded.

We don't want to start an American-Canadian war, but Verizon and AT&T owners of the Samsung Galaxy S III are still sitting on Android 4.0. A leak of what looked to be the final build of the update for Big Red customers took place early last month and yet, Verizon has yet to pass an update along. This must be frustrating for AT&T customers with the phone, as well. Sprint customers with the flagship Android handset were the first to receive the update in late October, followed by T-Mobile subscribers who were pushed Android 4.1 in the middle of last month.

If you are a Canadian Samsung Galaxy S III owner, let us know if you received your update early by commenting in the box below. If you are an AT&T or Verizon owner of the device, feel free to vent your anger in the same space.

I updated my Rogers GS3 last night. run in to a bit of problems, but in case these happen to you, here's what to do:
1. Smoothness: not so much improvements, minor=>but reset the phone made it super smooth
2. Google now: the voice feedback ONLY SUPPORTS US users=>so download locale from google play and set phone to US

I got my update last night, but when it went through the update process said the file could not be verified. Not sure if that is because I'm rooted. Chose not to take the chance. couldn't do over the air after that. Just working on getting firmware installed via kies.

Coppico, what do you mean by reset the phone? full factory reset?
