    Friend of mine sent me a text saying he received the jelly bean update about an hour ago.... That can't be true right?

    No, it's not true. Samsung just said today that Jelly Bean is coming to the S3 soon. And they are of course referring to the international version, not the carrier-branded versions, which will come later.

    Don't get too anxious waiting for the Jelly Bean update on any U.S. S3, particularly the Verizon one.

    It would be funny if we got JB before the nexus got it. I don't think that it will happen but it would be funny

    I also think that we could be seeing JB very soon because the note 2 is very similar to the S3. But the problem is how long does Verizon need to test it out.

    The Nexus owners(me being a former)would yell "crucify Google."

    I still have a nexus that I play around with but every time I pick it up I start to get mad at verizon. I think that the nexus has got the least amount of updates for phones that have come this year with the exception of the phones that have came out in the last 2 months.

    Your second sentence negates the first. :)

    The international unlocked version of the S3 will see Jelly Bean fairly soon, but the Verizon version won't. For Verizon (and other carrier branded models), a custom version of the software is needed, so it takes longer to create. And then, as you said, Verizon has to test it, which always takes a while.

    There may be some good JB roms ported over from the Int'l version to help with the wait! :)

    I understand how the update process goes but thank you for refreshing my memory. I get the fact that my 1st sentence negates my first sentence but my hope is that Verizon will change there ways and update this phone very quickly. But we both know that won't happen. Crap I did it again I contradicted myself again. At least this time I corrected myself and I saved you the time for doing it for me.
