T Mobile just got the S3 update pushed today. That means all carriers except Verizon have received the update. Can someone at Verizon explain what the hold up is or just escalate it so that it won't be months behind other carriers like similar, previous updates?
I too am wondering when the Tizen 3.0 update is coming for Verizon Gear s3 frontier/classic. Maybe I should have invested in a Bluetooth version, since they received there update well before the holidays and now it's the new year and both AT&T and T-Mobile leaves us behind in the dust. When searching the forums on Verizon I couldn't find more info in regards to this issue. I had to Google it and came upon your question and one other. This is extremely sad and I guess when the Note 8 finally gets Oreo it will be the same exact thing. It's definitely not fun always being last to receive software updates, while everyone else is enjoying the benefits.
My only hope is that Verizon is taking into account all the issues that have been associated with the 3.0 update and they're working to remedy said issues and push out a good update. Anything else just indicates Verizon's lackluster desire to keep their customers as up-to-date as possible. Verizon - you charge us a LOT for your services. Please extend the courtesy back to us by providing timely updates.
Just updated my 2 week old gear s3 with the 3.0 update. So far so good voice input for text and emails still works perfectly. And battery life seems the same. Haven't tried it on the verizon network in standalone yet but optimisic it will work like before.
