T-Mobile is one of the major Carriers in the US and has managed to sell a lot of Galaxy S3 models. Now, even though the users are receiving the Android 4.1.2 update with the Premium Suite and so on, CyanogenMod team is working hard to create the first stable CM 10.1 version until now. It is of course available for Galaxy S3 T-Mobile and can be used as daily ROM.
