I received this interesting email early this morning from Samsung TS after inquiring about Kies not specifying the correct Broadband Version on my GS3, which is I747UCLH9. I have left this unedited except where I bolded information for emphasis.
Thank you for your correspondence. We understand that you have attempted to update the Firmware version of your phone via Kies version 126.96.36.19904_1. We also understand that you would like to know why your phone [Not my phone, but what Kies displayed as my phone’s current BV.] is still shows the Baseband Version I747UCLG1 instead of the most updated one. You also would like to inform us that the phone is not rooted. We do apologize for the inconvenience that this issue might have caused you.
Please check the information below this is the content of the broken link that was provided from the previous e-mail that you have received.
