GB27 was not released by Sprint because of the size of the update. Just imagine 100,000+ users all updating over the air with a ROM that is 800 something megabytes. That is A LOT of bandwidth being used. So instead, Samsung pushed the update via Kies.
And if you do not want to root the phone I suggest using Kies for the update. Just instsll Kies then connect the E4GT with a USB cable and Kies will tell you an update is available. Proceed with the update and wait until it completes.

Running whatever ROM looks good at the time
Sorry, just wanted to make sure. JB is too big and requires repartitioning, so no OTA. I use the one - click, but it will wipe the internal SD card. Kies will back it up I believe.
On my way to work so I can't get more detailed now.

I'm guessing the s3, being a later model, went out the door with an easier upgrade path to JB.
