Default Possible Jelly Bean Update (Grain of Salt)

So I was on the phone with Virgin Mobile earlier today, and as I was arguing with them the tech support woman said that Jelly Bean would begin rolling out around May 22. Now I'm not saying this is one-hundred percent for sure, but I just found it interesting that she mentioned such a thing. Has anyone else heard of this?

Me neither until I called the support team. Personally I would be surprised if this turned out to be legitimate, but I will definitely keep everyone posted.

confirming what cybgo said. Son got 4.1.2 this morning. Sadly he lost 3g and keeps getting error 128. We've tried reactivating and still nothing. I really don't want to call "support"...

A couple reboots later and 3G is back and everything seems to be working. He did have to update Mobile ID.
I'm surprised with VM. They even included face unlock.

Default Jelly Bean upgrade question.

Question: After Jelly bean update, does FoxFi still work???

I've been using the paid vers. of Foxfi (WiFi Hotspot) since getting my SGR and am very anxious to know if it still works after installing Jelly Bean.

Thanks,
Rob

I'm calling bullshit. I tried every method 3 times and even called VM and they said there wasn't an update for the Reverb at this moment.

Have you found a solution, I was on the phone with Samsung, Virgin Mobile, and Best Buy for over 5 hours total today. Samsung suggested I use Kies and the Reverb is supported on Kies, but when I connect to Kies I get the error saying that my device is not compatible.

I have tried, but I can't find a solution, and I get the same message on Kies. What's your Baseband version on your phone?

Yeah I get the same thing, although for some reason it says I ave the Baseband of the Jelly Bean OS, even though I'm on ICS lol. I get the same exact thing, and I've talked to Samsung support with no help at all.

That's odd...I was really excited to get JB, too. I know for sure though, when I get the update, I will upload the zip for others who need it.

I wonder why they'd suggest Kies. I don't know what Kies would have to do with an OTA OS update unless you were somehow able to get the install package onto your PC to transfer to the phone wirelessly. Even then plugging it in via USB would be a lot easier than that with a large file like that.

Have you gotten a notification about the Jelly Bean update, or any update rather?

I'm not sure, but the crazy guy I talked to on the phone with Samsung said that the update had to be done over kies because it isn't an ota update. I was like WTF?

I think he used the term: "over the wire", then he said I would have to take it to a virgin mobile store or a best buy and get it done. Then I called my local Best Buy and they said they can only do updates via OTA, they don't have access to kies or anything else like it.
