I have the S3, but it is only a wifi device. I did have service with VZ, but discontinued the service and went to a wifi device only. I am currently on version 4.1.1. I know that 4.1.2 is out, but every time I try to update it says service is unavailable. I'm guessing that is because I do not have VZ service. But that is strange, because yesterday I got a notification that an update to Accessories ( Verizon ) was available. I downloaded and installed that with no problem, even though it came from VZ. I checked with a rep at a store, and was told I would not get updates unless subscribed to VZ. Is this correct? If so, is there any way to get the updates without activating phone? Thanks for any help.
