    Sprint has also confirmed the roll out of the KitKat update for s3 today. Sprint’s own support site shows that the update has been approved for rollout as of May 1, which is today.

    According to the Verizon website, it gave our S3s ability to roam on the Canadian Telus network.

    There seems to be no consensus on whether we'll get KitKat or not. The leaked memo from Samsung (if genuine) seems to say yes. On the other hand, there have been no leaked versions and there does seem to be some concern about whether KitKat will run with all the Samsung and Verizon bloatware attached. I wonder whether the Canadian roaming patch wasn't really some sort of test run to see how the phone would react to KitKat without actually rolling it out.

    You would think, but if the memory load is too great, maybe not.

    So it was announced today that Verizon's version of the SGS3 will be getting Kit Kat 4.4.2. The problem is that the build in their upgrade details is the same build that is currently running on the device (after the Telus minor back around 5/1/2014). See link from Droid Life: Verizon?s Samsung Galaxy S3 Gets Kit Kat Update Today, Galaxy S4 Mini Too | Droid Life

    Hopefully the folks at Big Red have figured this out and are changing the build number of the update and changing the build in the details page.
