Hey, im new to this website but I have a problem with my galaxy s3 so I thought id ask here, I got an update for my phone a couple of weeks ago but decided not to update it, then today I finally did, and the update took a while but once done, my phone just shows the turning on screen for ages and ages, sometimes even more than 10 minutes, then occasionaly it will act as if it is turning on again and do the start up screen, but every single time it freezes with the screen just saying Samsung, it still glows and stuff but just stays on that screen. I don't know what update it was because I didn't look, but im pretty sure it was 4.3 because my phone has been fully updated since this recent one. please help me fix my phone asap! :(

@Brenton OTA means over the air i.e when you get a notification that updates are available for your device and when you click on it you devices downloads and installs the upgrade, i.e. it installs the update wirelessly while updating using Kies involves the use of PC and data cable.

The first one, I pressed on the software update widget, pressed update and then it started, took about half an hour then said install update, so I pressed install and than it installed it and rebooted and wouldn't turn back on
