    And still no AT&T :(

      or verizon...

        Off course not At&t and Verizon are both the WORST CARRIER IN THE MARKET on updates. Piss on both equally. Tmobile rules always will.

      and why didn't you let anyone know? I've been waiting for what feels like forever for the JB update.

    It says Android 4.0.4... ???

    • Robert Johnson

      Same here, it's updated to the t999uvlj4 baseband, which T-Mobile considers current per the instructions, with 4.0.4. Software update says it's up-to-date.
