It probably took so long to get to your iPod because it used Apple Maps to navigate to your phone. Probably spent the first week trying to install itself on a toaster in Zimbabwe... ;)

Right? I plan on getting the LG Nexus 4 for the pure vanilla experience, but I don't want to let go of my S3 just yet....

My next phone is definitely going to be a Nexus, unlocked, so I don't have to wait for the latest Android updates to be approved by the carriers. Waiting on Samsung to unveil their Nexus.

Kudos to Sprint for being first. It would be nice if other carriers were as fast.

Has anyone actually gotten this update automatically yet? This is ridiculous. First to announce, but not first to implement? They just wanted to be first, but it isn't even true. T-Mobile people have already gotten theirs!

I forced the update on my S3 last night and it worked perfectly.

Go to settings, Application manager, All, Google Services Framework, Clear Data and then Force Stop.

After that Check for update of Samsung software. The Jelly Bean prompt should pop right up
