WIND, Mobilicity or Videotron customer with a Samsung Galaxy S III? Jealous that other GS III owners on other carriers already have received the Jelly Bean upgrade? Curious to know where yours is sitting? Well, Samsung answered all your questions today on Twitter stating that WIND, Mobilicity and Videotron will “start receiving Jelly Bean on Fri. with a staggered rollout into next week!”

Update: Looks like Videotron users are now receiving the Jelly Bean upgrade (OS 4.1.1). Check to see if it’s hit your GS III yet: Menu >> Settings >> About phone >> System software updates >> Check now.

(Thanks Eric!)

  • Dreamchaser

    This really is frustrating as a ONE X owner.
    Any idea when HTC/ROGERS will be updating their devices?

    Great news for Wind Mobile and totally wasted if you use on Mobilicity who are going bankrupt on a lousy network.

    • boycott apple

      bankruptcy? where is the proof?

      please provide evidence that shows that mobilicity is going bankrupt.

      you just sound stupid by making statements that aren’t backed up by any material evidence..

  • matt

  • Mobilicity

    I am on Mobilicity and there is an issue after the update. “Software update” cannot connect to its server and it keeps showing a massage in notification bar that is trying to connect to the server…
    I received a new setting from Mobilicity and I installed it but still have the issue. Does anybody else have the issue or it’s just my phone?
    Any idea how to fix it?

  • L. Dao

    Updated my Wind phone, it went smoothly but notice now it’s draining my battery to fast!

    • Pascal B

      sometime, It can take 1 or 2 battery cycles before to get some improvement, some process like media scan need to rescan the device to rebuild libraries.
