An OTA update is rolling out to Verizon owners of the Samsung Galaxy S III

An OTA update that was sent out late last month for Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy S III, was supposed to bring multi-windows to the handset and more. Weighing in at 129.1MB, other features like Paper Artist and Best Shot were also part of the update. But something went awry and those who own the phone were finding that instead of getting 4 bars of Verizon LTE, their phone was receiving only 2 bars of the sweet stuff.

Apparently, the word on Wednesday night is that a small OTA update, VRBMF1, is rolling out now to fix the problems caused by the prior update. So far, there is no word from Big Red on their web site about it. Verizon is usually good with support for updates and graces their site with screenshots of new features.

In the meantime, if you are a Verizon customer with the Samsung Galaxy S III and you have received an OTA update on Wednesday or Thursday, drop us a comment in the box below. Hopefully, the update will repair the connectivity issue because no one wants to find themselves with a connection half as strong as it should be.

So far good for me. Everything is working faster as far as connectivity. Have to see about calls though.

they should update the droid razr m. no, really they should;because 4.1.2 is complete crap. 4.0 and 4.1.1 made the phone great.
