wm_GALAXY S III Product Image (10)_W

Earlier this month, The Now Network pushed an update to its version of the Samsung Galaxy S III with a few small fixes in it. That update was build L710VPMA6. Today, the company is sending another update to the Galaxy S III that is essentially the same update, plus one addition: 3rd party software licensing. This one's build L710VPMB1, will hit your device regardless of whether or nor you installed the previous update.

So, for those wondering, here's the full changelog:


  • Voicemail application update
  • SMS 3-digit support
  • Calendar sync issues
  • 3rd party software licensing

Per Sprint, "this is a new release of L710VPBMA6, but also includes additional 3rd party software licenses." We're not sure why the company decided to rehash a previous update with one additional feature (as opposed to sending that feature out on its own), but alas, that's what it did. At least you'll know what's going on when you install the update, anyway.

  • Jason Sandry

    This also has a new Baseband Version which means a new modem same as MA6.

    Rooted, so went to QbKing77's web page for the update and manually flashed. May skip this one though.

    New feature: in camera hold the button to take burst photos and tap to take single photos. Burst is just an always on feature now when in single shot mode.

    What does "3rd party software licensing" provide?
