You sure about this?  I don't believe 4.2 is out for the S3 anywhere as of yet.

Can you guys copy and past what the text says word by word? I searched everywhere and did not see anything about this.

Hmm, is 4730 a Rogers shortcode though?
That's odd since we know 4.2 hasn't been released anywhere yet.

Exactly what i thought AnonymousUser.

Also its odd that they sent a text YET Samsung Canada on Facebook or Twitter announced nothing. Nothing has been said anywhere either.

I am kinda thinking this was a mistake text sent out to random people. I know people with S3's on Rogers which never got a text & i never got a text either using a android.

Unless it's somebody spoofing the shortcode.
I'm gonna ask my friend's with the S3 on Rogers to see if they got it, very strange though!

Hello AnonymousUser

Agreed very strange indeed!. I posted on Samsung Mobile Canada Facebook page. I know it will take hours to get a answer but i hope they let us know what is going on & if its true as someone asked on May 17th about the 4.2 update & Samsung said its not out yet & its in delay..

I posted the link from here & from XDA for them to see.
