    So are all the SG3 getting different things added in their OTA updates? AT&T didn't get the same thing I don't think.

    Hm.. Just checked on my Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3. It's not picking up any updates. Guess I'll check again in couple of hours.

    HOw do you get rid of the 'ticker tape' display that is over the status bar? It seems to have something to do with the Swype function. Is it a keyboard function? I have tried all the nexcessary settings on display and cannot seem to get rid of it. Drive's me nuts.
