    4.3 update has been pulled this sucks

    The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S3 has been officially put on hold, Samsung confirmed to a publication, after many device owners reported several performance and battery issues with the handset following the software upgrade in the UK.

    Released only a few days ago, the Android 4.3 update is not available as an OTA download for Galaxy S3 owners. Hereís the brief statement Samsung Mobile UK gave to Sam Mobile on the matter:

    As we are currently investigating the reported issues with Galaxy S3 4.3 Jelly Bean update, the upgrading service has been temporarily suspended. We are committed to providing customers with the best possible mobile experience, and will ensure to resume the upgrading service at the earliest possibility.

    The publication also listed the following major issues with the Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 update:

    Wake up lag (Sometimes it takes a few seconds to wake the device from standby and sometimes a few minutes)
    Random Freezing
    Huge battery drain
    Bluetooth Audio issues during playback in car
    Stuttering music playback with stock Samsung music app
    Device freezes as soon a call is received (Black screen issue)
    Poor RAM management (very difficult to multitask)
    Wi-Fi issues
    Interestingly, the recently released Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 update for the AT&T model has also been quietly pulled, so it would appear that Samsungís issues with the latest Jelly Bean version are a bit more widespread than expected.

    The Galaxy Note 2 is also expected to receive its own Android 4.3 upgrade in the near future, with a new test firmware having leaked the other day. However, itís not clear when the handset will receive the update considering the issues with the Galaxy S models mentioned above.

    It has already been released in the us. On att and sprint or tmobile. So we might be getting it sooner than we think with kit kat around the corner.

    Hmm i think so but I don't think you will lose it fully you would need to re enter cricket network settings but I'm no expert on that subject I could make a flash able ROM with all that for youv
