    I would be excited for Kit Kat, but i am pretty sure that they will block FoxFi again. That alone kills the dream for me. No enhancement is worth losing my wifi access.

    I'm doubtful we will see KitKat on the S3. I honestly think the only reason we got 4.3 was the potential to sell more Galaxy Gear watches (I'm not a fan, but liking 4.3). The S4 is almost a year old, and the S5 is soon to be announced so why would they spend time/money on the S3?

    I am not sure I would want kitkat. 4.3 is a memory hog and only succeeded in slowing my GSIII down. On boot up the phone uses A little. More than 300 Mb more ram at idle with all APS clear than it did with 4.1. I'm also not thrilled with the additional bloatware . My contract is almost up so maybe it's time to root and load CM10.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too. Sammy will make it available (yay for them!) but it's up to VZW to test it and push it out. It's possible...

    The internets are pretty quiet on an update for the S3; looks like the S4 is getting updated though. I've still got over a year until my next upgrade, but my S3 is working well for me.

    Judging by the frantic app updates I'm getting I would say 4.4 will come to the S3 soon.

    The Inability to move apps to the SD card is a bummer.

    No. I don't have Sprint. I have Verizon Wireless.
