US Cellular’s Samsung Galaxy S3 gets maintenance upgrade

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is still awaiting Jelly Bean on many carriers, but that doesn’t mean a maintenance upgrade should be anything to sneeze at. US Cellular’s version has been upgraded to buildĀ R530UVXLI4, and while the company hasn’t provided much information on what’s changed Android Police has evidence suggesting Google Wallet is now fully supported.

To date, Sprint has been one of the only carriers to officially support Google Wallet. The other big 3 — Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile — are in bed with ISIS so there’s no use in holding your breath for those guys to get it (though community efforts in the past have shown that workarounds are possible).

Other changes include a fix for Microsoft Email 365, an update to Polaris, and more. You can grab this one over the air, or download the whopping 756MB EXE file from US Cellular to get started.

    Just updated. Hopefully this will fix the poor radio signal in my s3. Neat to have Google wallet. Don’t know where I’ll use it yet. Live in a small town but have it enabled and ready to go should the occasion arise

      Us Cellular is now replacing those phones with dropped calls. It turned out to be a hardware issue on Samsungs end. Please call customer service at 611.

    Finally! I don’t know what this update did but my Google Voice app is working noticeably better. I have been having issues with it since I got my SIII. All gravy now, seriously thank you Google.

    I had previously called customer service about the issue and they opened a ticket and said they would get back to me. Thanks for the heads up. I called them back and they are sending a new phone out today.
