How to get rid of system update reminder on Galaxy S3 that's not rooted?

(MY PHONE IS NOT ROOTED)

I just bought the S3 and was playing around and found the t-mobile system update. i plan on updating in the future, but i just got back all of my data from the previous phone. I don't want to update it and have to get all of my stuff back right now. I have the option to postpone the update for 1 day, but the notification still pops up and stays there. Can i get rid of the notification without updating? Again, My phone is not rooted. All of the help on here is for rooted phones.

I might have not worded that well. I meant the download folder, essentially. I'm not sure when it became an "app" but on at least some versions of Android, that's where you have to look to find your downloads. Look and see if the update is an .apk file in your downloads that you can delete.

Good luck. Sorry I can't be of more help.

If T-Mo is using Google Play Services to push out the update, you should be able to go into it through your app manager (settings>apps>google play services), then uncheck the box that says “show notifications.” Keep in mind, this will keep you from getting notifications of important updates.

Hmm, then there aren't too many other things that I know of to do if you aren't rooted (sorry, I know that doesn't help you). The only other thing I can think of is to go into your downloads app, and delete the update if it has already downloaded and that is what is triggering the nag screen.

it's not in the downloads apps, it's apart of my system. but thanks for the suggestions
