I think you guys are day dreaming

EDIT : Best case scenario, it's going to be 4.1.2 ... which I think is much more plausible.

I'm with you, best case scenario it will be 4.1.2. If AT&T is jumping directly to 4.2 then the release date won't be soon. 4.2 is barely out there.

They took time to add the word "very" to their responses; why do that? They can't be that sadistic to write "very" and then wait until the end of December. Their scale of time can't be that off.

And, they tweeted to two people that the update was going to be 4.2; combine this with that now-closed thread from an AT&T employee stating it was 4.2. Guys, I think things are shaping up very well here.

You certainly deserve a pat on the back for taking the initiative! Good work!

Here are a couple of observations that seem to put doubt on their 4.2 claim:

1. Google just released 4.2 two weeks ago, and it's hard to believe that AT&T is rolling it out in the "very near future". 4.1 was officially released in July, but AT&T has been testing it since May. This leads me to believe that we will wait at least 6-7 months before we get anywhere near 4.2.

2. 4.2 had several major bugs when it was released. As of yesterday, Google began pushing out 4.2.1 to the Nexus devices, in order to rectify these bugs. Since AT&T is so concerned with (bloatware) compatibility, I highly doubt they'll release 4.2 in its current state.

With that being said, I am curious to finally see what AT&T considers to be "very near future".

Ps they could have delayed if they were gonna release 4.2 let's say bit with all the bugs they were waiting for the 4.2 1?

I spoke with 2 different reps last night on the live chat thing & they both told me that it was gonna be 4.2. I even asked both of them 2 times "Are you sure it's gonna be 4.2 & not 4.1.2?" & both of them told me that it would be 4.2.

Unfortunately, you can't. They utilize different frameworks.

Surprised wouldn't be the word to describe how I'd feel if AT&T actually released 4.2. However, Samsung hasn't even released it to their unlocked models. I think it's just AT&T reps being typically misinformed.

4.2 just MIGHT be the AT&T update! Look at #1 above "4.1 was officially released in July, but AT&T has been testing it since May" So that means the carriers get the new software 2-3 months before it is release by Google? And Google is releasing 4.2.1 for the nexus 4, 7, 10 now! And Samsung released 4.1 to the rest of the world in Sept-Oct. (too soon for another update?) Why couldn't AT&T and even Verizon jump 4.1.x and go straight to 4.2.1? Their bloatware probably didn't need to be changed that much from 4.1 compatibility to be 4.2 compatible IMHO. We'll just have to wait and see what we get!!!!!!!!!! (it feels like Christmas!)

Well, if by some chance we get 4.2 in the next week or two, I would be satisfied, granted I don't know why they would release that without the 4.2.1 that was just released.

Also, Samsung's website now shows that the AT&T version of the S3 comes with 4.1 but the buy now link takes you to bestbuy which still shows 4.0. No one seems to be on the same page...
