Verizon Galaxy S III update pulled following reports of connectivity issues

Verizon began updating the Galaxy S III back towards the end of last month and almost immediately after we began hearing about issues dealing with the update. Most of the issues seem to have been on the topic of connectivity, specifically with 4G LTE however things were just not right for those who had updated. Verizon has yet to say what they may do to make things better for those who updated and are experiencing issues, but it looks like they have since pulled the update.

LG Spectrum update detailed by Verizon Wireless

Verizon updated the LG Spectrum to Ice Cream Sandwich back in October and it looks like details for another software update have recently been posted. And while we would be happy to report this update was brining Jelly Bean, that is not the case. Of course, we are not all that certain any Spectrum users are expecting that anyway. Needless to say, this update still seem worthwhile and one that you will likely want to grab.

T-Mobile details latest Galaxy S III and Galaxy S II software updates

T-Mobile has detailed the latest software updates for the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy S II smartphones. Neither of the updates are what we would consider major, but that said, it is still nice to see them both getting some attention from the carrier. The Galaxy S III update is pretty straight forward, however those with a T-Mobile Galaxy S II may not necessarily have an update ready just yet.
