Verizon's Galaxy S3 Jellybean update now live
For those of you who own the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S3, your long-awaited update is finally here; numerous tips in our inbox and several other websites are now reporting the update is being pushed to customers. The timing on this update is pretty much par for the course for Verizon, as Big Red’s ridiculously prolonged in depth testing process usually results in their customers receiving sought-after updates last among the U.S. carriers.

If you’re one of those Verizon GS3 owners, you can check to see if the update is waiting for you. If not, some users are finding success by heading to Settings>Apps>All>Google Services Framework and hitting “Force Stop” and then “Clear Data”. This will not cause you to lose any data from your phone, but it often results in the phone finding an update that wasn’t previously showing up (sometimes people report needing to do this 2-3 times before an update shows up).

You can find out more information on the update here, and if you’re a Verizon GS3 owner, let us know if you’ve received your update yet!
