Owners of Verizon's Samsung Galaxy SIII should be keeping an eye out for a software update which VZW says is "coming soon." The update – which sadly is not Jelly Bean – brings to VZW-connected SIII owners a handful of key improvements, enhancements and bug fixes, and brings the device's software build up to IMM76D.I535VRALG7.

Among the changes included in the 30.7MB update are improved stability and connectivity with Back Up Assistant, the ability to use Verizon Remote Diagnostics, improved S Beam connectivity, an NFC (TecTile) bug fix, and a "No SIM" fix.


Verizon hasn't provided a specific time frame for the update just yet, but owners anxious to keep their device's software up to date should keep an eye out for an OTA prompt, and watch Verizon's support page linked below.

      If you're running unlocked, then you're very unlikely to be running stock, ago the ota is completely unimportant to you anyway. Besides, it would be trivial to reroot and unlock again. Your gripe is misplaced and unnecessary.

      "fixed" boot loader? You mean locking a locked bootloader??

    Verizon and updates don't go hand and hand that's for sure. Something is phoney about this update it probably removes the search bar functionality. I wouldn't except this update till later and people find out what it really is.

      i thought they already rolled out a silent update for Verizon S3 to remove the search bar....? it was build G2 opposed to the original of F2

        F1 dammit! sorry....

    XDA will probably snag the new radio once this is released. Then CM10 nightlies will be even better.
