Software updates are free! But without a carrier signal you have to update over the internet!
If you do find a way to do it, be careful you don't update your phone to a software that is to advanced for your device.
You could very easily overload your storage and turn your phone into a useless brick!

Im running Android 4.4.2 OS Samsung Galaxy S3, 16GB storage. I have internet connection using WiFi Direct off another phone. Is there any sites you can recommend for free upgrade downloads?

It is possible to update your s3 to the 5.11 software (the lollipop). But you have to install a custom Rom first.
Read these websites.

Or do this websearch;
5.0 update for the galaxy s3.
You will find many websites that will explain how to do it. And where to find the update.
