((((((((((((((((((((((So today I was on Samsung's Canadian website and decided to do a live chat with a representative about the S3 (SGH-I747M) and ask if the two year old handset will be updated to 4.4.4 or even 5.0.
I was shocked by what the rep told me: I've included screenies for proof that i am not lying go ahead and hold your S3s to the sky and bask in the glory of these wonderful screen shots.)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

ROM: SAMSUNG STOCK KITKAT 4.4.2 FIRMWARE
BASEBAND: I747MVLUFNK2

Even though there are rumors, I would take what the csr's say with a grain of salt.

I gave my s3 to my niece and it would be nice to get 5.0 but it may be tough to see the difference between kk and 5.0 since both would be running touch wiz.

Yes but touch wiz right now is more cartoony and now that we know we are getting lollipop we could expect a more s5 like design but more lillipopised.

They are not rumors anymore. I've given proof that all i747m will receive lollipop. I tried to confirm with Samsung US but they would not say anything but told me to wait and not believe any rumors that the s3 will no longer be supported. they also hinted that something is in the works, when Samsung Canada specifically confirmed that it will receive the update...only one conclusion: samsung US is keeping quiet about the update.

I had a Motorola Atrix HD and Motorola's tech support team and David Schuster of Motorola also said KK was coming to the Atrix HD and it never happened. Let's hope Samsung's CSR is right.

You spoke with a csr who could tell you anything they'd like. Kinda like s csr telling me they were installing fiber optic for my building, that was 7 years ago. Until there is public word from Samsung, carriers, or until it starts actually rolling out..... It's still a rumor.

I also am a bit sceptical. That csr never said Google had yet sent the update to Samsung, he did not say that Samsung had received the update, nor did he say that Samsung had made their changes and sent the updates to the carriers. The csr gave a flow chart but did not state if the process had actually been started. Also, once the carrier receives the update from Samsung it can take months to get released, at least based on AT&Ts past history with my first device.
