    I just rooted my new Samsung Galaxy S3 for Sprint and by doing so, I don't want to update the phone via OTA updates. The phone keeps alerting me that a new update is available and that I should update now, I can update later, and there's also a third option I can't remember.

    Is there any way to disable these notifications without updating my phone?

    93 came up again and here's exactly what the message says word for word. This message pops up randomly every few minutes.

    "System update
    A system update is ready to install. Your Android device will restart and install the update. You will not be able to make any calls, including emergency calls, during installation.
    Install later More info... Install now

    "Install later More info... Install now" are the choices available. Clicking the back button is the same as "Install later", I believe, as it just postpones the message until later.

    "More info..." brings up another dialogue saying:
    "Android system update
    This Software Update includes new enhancements and improvements for your Samsung Galaxy S III. You will be unable to use your device for the duration of the install, which is expected to take several minutes.

    Restart & install
    "Restart & install" is my only option other than clicking the back button which works just as before where it just postpones the message until later.

    The message is getting annoying and I'd just like it to go away because I have no want to update. I am not interested in flashing third party ROMs either because I'd like to get to continue using the stock ROM with root privileges for the time being.

    You can disable the updater in manage applications. Its called software update. Or freeze it with titanium

    Great idea! Thank you! I force stopped the app as well as cleared the data from it. I'll post back here for an update. It's actually called "System Update", there was no "software update" in the list. At least, I think that's the one that you were referring to.

    I tried clearing data and force closing the app but the updates still come through. I've also froze the apk with Titanium Backup but it still keeps asking me to update. Odd though because it's not doing it as frequent as before.
