    Even though it didn't work for you internet, I would still suggest others having this issue trying it.

    If that doesn't work, then your final option is to call in for a replacement. I couldn't install the update, tried everything...didn't have a choice if I wanted JB in the future. Sucks it's not the original, but don't let the internet scare you. Unless you're a total hypochondriac it's almost like getting a brand new phone.

    I'm having the same issue. I get the same message. I'm not rooted, never have been on my GS3.

    I too had the same problem. Up until 9-30-12... it let me check for software update after that said service unavailable. I tried FDR, new SIM, called Verizon and Samsung and all fails. So... they sent me a replacement and now it's working fine. Verizon and Samsung acted like they never heard of it but I know there has to be more than just a few random people. Good luck!!

    Well I am going to the Verizon store and see if they will change out the sim card to see if it is the problem. I will post back if it solves it.

    When you got a replacement from Verizon, you didn't have to pay, did you?

    Mine wouldn't install. Same SIM card, also a new phone. Works even better than before.

    And no you don't pay anything, it's covered under warranty and is free overnight shipping, as well as a free return box/label you can leave in your mailbox.
