Verizon recently released an update for the Galaxy S3 that brought a few fixes and some new features. However while the device is working better in general, you will probably face slower data speed of 4G LTE, as noticed on a report from 'Android Community'. The file will fix some small issues you might have with your device, but you can choose the smart way of this situation: wait until the update will get a fix and will cause you no problems when you use it. Some users told us on the web that they have only one or two bars on 4G LTE fact which is really annoying. Also, some of them are saying that they don't have signal at all or their devices stuck on 3G connectivity. We all know that the speed of performing some actions, especially those actions which are referring to technology, is supposed to be higher and higher. Users do not expect things go in the opposite side as they are paying money for something. Even if you will probably want to restart your phone, switch it to Airplane mode or restart it, I should tell you, it will not work. You have a better chance if you access Settings, More Networks, Mobile Networks and then change the network mode to LTE/CDMA. If it is still not working, forget about it. You will have to wait for an official fix of the file. However, the file will give you extra camera features, Multi window, Mobile Hotspot improvements and it will be a "must have" when Verizon will fix the problem.

- Often times you can view the model number inside the device, by removing the battery
