Galaxy S3

486MB update brings Android 4.3 and Galaxy Gear support to original T-Mobile Galaxy S3

The Android 4.3 update may be up in the air for some models, but users with the original (T999) Samsung Galaxy S3 from T-Mobile have the new firmware ready for installation OTA or via Samsung Kies.

Right off the bat — this is for the older version that isn't LTE capable. T-Mobile has no word on when to expect any updates for the LTE version. We think this means something, but we're not going to guess what. Here's your quick and dirty change log:


  • Android version 4.3/Software version T999TUVUEMJC
  • Approved 11/19/2013
  • OTA manual pull down and Samsung Kies update available

New Features:

  • KNOX
  • Samsung Galaxy Gear support


  • T999UVDMD5
  • Device software is not rooted
  • 50% battery life
  • Latest version of Kies software downloaded on PC or MAC
  • Data connection
  • File size of update is 486 MB

Check your device settings, or plug into Kies if you're daring, and give it a click!
