Verizon pushing out Galaxy S3 OTA update as bugfix for battery-life & connectivity issues


Samsung Galaxy S3 owners on Verizon who experienced battery-life and connectivity issues after receiving the VRBMD3 firmware update earlier this month should soon be receiving a fix in the form of a new over-the-air update being pushed out by the carrier over the next few days. The first updates are due to happen tonight.

Verizon acknowledged the issue about a week after the previous update went out, saying:

A software update was recently pushed to the Samsung Galaxy S III, and while a majority of customers downloaded and installed the update successfully, a small number were negatively impacted. As a result the software update push has been postponed as a precaution for customers. We will notify them when a new software update is available for download.
