Good afternoon twistedfinn967!
Whether you're a new customer or been with us for a long time, our goal is to wow you in every aspect of your wireless life. So, let's talk this out.
At this point in time, we currently don't have any information about an update to the premium suit that Samsung has released. Of course, when it comes to updates as soon as everything is approved and goes through proper testing then you can bet you'll be amongst the first to get it. But even with that said, I don't want to leave you hanging. Given that I have an SIII, something I like to do every now and then is check in for all news updates at http://bit.ly/n5snpq . I hope this helps!

It's almost impossible to get a honest answer out of Verizon. Premium Suite was included in Samsung's Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update but not for us. Verizon will never tell you truthfully why.
Just got off the phone with Tech Support from Verizon. I am extremely disappointed with Verizon when it comes to the S3 platform and the premium suite update. I'm actually going to opt out of my contract and pay the fee. In the phone call I found out that not only does Verizon not have a release date, but also that the S3 update is not a concern of theirs due to the launch of the S4. So basically, screw you S3 customers you should have waited for the S4. My next phone will definitely be an international FULLY functional with all updates loaded and usable. It's just disheartening to be the American stool pigeon when it comes to actually purchasing a phone that is restricted versus non restricted. I prefer not to be anymore. For those waiting on the Premium suite update for Verizon I hope this helps although it is bad news.
Verizon and their greed is getting really old! Other carriers are including Premium Suite! What's the point in getting one of the most up to date sophisticated phones out if Verizon is just going to neuter it?
I guess they've never heard of pricing yourself out of business. One of the main features I wanted when researching my phone was the call blocking feature that's in Premium Suite, not Verizon's paid crap. I work nights and have a pregnant wife that works days. I have to turn off my ringer during the day to sleep but... What if she needs to go? I thought I would be able to turn off or block all callers but her, and I could have, if I didn't have the greediest phone carrier out there that neutered that feature from my phone!
Thanks Samsung for making an awesome phone with awesome features. Thank You Verizon, for screwing it up! I found an app bye the way! Verizon Ill never pay extra for your stupid call block service! I really think that's what it all boils down to.
