    It should be able to download the update over wifi.
    Have you tried installing Samsung Kies on a pc, plugging the phone in and doing it that way?

    it's odd that it is running ICS. (Android 4.0.4) mine came new out of the box with Android 4.1.2, same model...sure it's not rooted and simply running an old ROM?

    Hiya bigjoncoop!
    I moved your thread to the S3 forums so others with the device can help. ;)

    As funky mentioned, is it possible to download the update via wifi?
    Or, (and I have never used it) use Kies?
