Verizon to update Samsung Galaxy S III to Android 4.1 starting on Friday
The update also brings a new notification panel that displays missed calls and emails and lets you respond to the call or email directly from the screen. Guess what is added to the camera settings. Why, it's the feature of the week-photo filters! Different filters will be available to enhance your pictures such as warm vintage, cold vintage, black and white, sepia, color highlights (blue, green, red/yellow). When you're recording a video, you can now stop in the middle and resume filming so that everything gets recorded in one take.
The update will be coming OTA, but if you can't wait, you can try to update your phone manually by clicking on "Home" > "Applications" > "Settings" > "About Phone" > "System updates". Press "Restart & install". The update is 62MB in size. It will take 5 to 7 minutes to download and 5 to 7 minutes to update.

I also hope that they fixed the group messaging issue, that when someone replies to a group message it goes into an individual message instead of the group message It lets you send them fine just not receive them. I have Verizon messages app now and it works OK, I just prefer to use the built in messaging app.

Please don't laugh at me too much, but what should I do before downloading this? What kinds of things get deleted and how do I back them up?
