    why hasn't Verizon updated us to jellybean yet?

    As much as I love the Android Os I have to give apple some credit at least when they update their Os it happens at the same time for everyone, has nothing to do with carriers

    That may not be so much "Apple's" doing as it is their careful selection of carriers and their dominating position in the market for so long. They pretty much demanded what they wanted and the carriers were all to happy to oblige. That domination is waning and Android has taken center stage. It's only a matter of time before the carriers start flexing their muscles in the Apple Orchard. Time to reach beyond the low-hanging fruit.

    You make a very good point I just don't get it android Os is awesome and is truly amazing being open source and the carriers have to ruin it. They should let us get the updates as they come out and then add their bloatware. I imo

    I've been using Jelly Bean since I got my S3 in October. Root your S3 and get a Synergy or AOSP ROM and enjoy. Apple ROM's never appear before they force them on their sheeple. Here's a good link to help you on your way to Jelly Bean:

    Apple has a one of a kind product and product strategy. They really do. With only ONE of its kind, it holds a lot of power, when Apple moves, carriers move.

    With Android, there are so many phone manufacturers competing for space, the carriers get to move first.

    And believe it or not, its the Carriers who demand the skinned versions of Android, specially Verizon, which is why for one Verizon has to approve each and every update build, and if Verizon isn't happy, they just move on with another manufacture who will happily oblige to carrier requirements [carriers require the skinned versions of Android because it helps keep product diversity up and a larger selection of pros and cons for each device; imagine if all Android phones ran stock vanilla Android? Boring.].
