Back at the end of May, we saw Verizon roll out a new update to the Galaxy S III that was supposed to be quite significant with new features like multi-window. But there was a catch with the update, it began to cause users poor to no cell connectivity which, in turn, caused extremely slow data speeds and horrendous battery life. After about 30 hours without any problems, I started feeling the effects on my S III and it wasn’t exaggerated at all.
But the good news is that Verizon seems to have realized that there is indeed a problem and they are apparently working with Samsung to find a solution. In the meantime, the update has been put on hold. But for users who downloaded the update, there aren’t any really good solutions to your problem at the moment. You might be able to get Verizon to give you a replacement device if you’re lucky but I wouldn’t put too much stock in that idea. Or you could do what myself and others have done and root your device. Of course, remember that rooting voids your warranty and DroidDog isn’t responsible for any problems that you may have with your device if you root. What are you guys’ thoughts on the whole debacle?
