Well my S3 went in for repairs so I don't have it to verify this. If I recall correctly, there is an option in the Settings, I believe it's in the Software Update section that sets downloading of software only with Wifi.

Uncheck this and you should be able to download the update via Mobile data.

BTW: I thought the S3 was 3G only.

Hope this helps.
