If you happen to be a proud owner of the Samsung Galaxy S3 while being a Verizon Wireless subscriber, then you might want to check out what is deemed to be the first software update for this particular smartphone. Do not expect the software experience to change by leaps and bounds, but rather, it ought to be categorized under the “incremental update” segment. There is no Jelly Bean in this update so that means your Galaxy S3 will still rock on to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, albeit nudging the version number to touch I535VRALG7.

Just what would software update version I535VRALG7 bring to the fore? The main benefit would be kissing the “No SIM” error message goodbye. This particular error have been plaguing select folks for some time already, never mind that they have already changed their SIM for a new one for the umpteenth time. Other improvements include better stability and connectivity with Back Up Assistant, support for viewing the Guided Tour video’s over the cellular network, improved data connectivity when using SBeam, and making sure no more NFC tagging issues remain.

The update will weigh in at 30.7MB, although there is no concrete release date just yet.
