Software updates

Software updates can be found under: Settings > General > About Device > Software Update

If the handset prompts for update then you should continue. Be aware that data charges apply when using mobile data, so WiFi is recommended.

When the handset prompts 'The latest updates have already been installed' you can start using HD Voice.

The Samsung GALAXY S3 MINI handset needs a hard reset (factory reset) in order for HD Voice to be activated. A hard reset erases customer data and contacts and is not advisable. Please contact us for more information on this process.
