When a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device.  The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country.  Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.

 

For more info on this process check out our page:

 

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?

 

The below table provides information on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 03/07/2017. If no information is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.

 

When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices and once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, for example the manufacturers might make the update available for a small number of users (i.e. 5%) initially; then if no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll gradually be made available to more and more users over the following weeks.

@Jack_gecko give optus a call and speak to the IT department. If the update was Released and you haven't received it they may have to push the update direct.i think someone in an earlier thread had the same issue with a different phone when the update was released. 

 

they have updated the blog, just didn't tell us.  have a look in the blog categories for one listed 18.07.2017

 

this kind of crap is why I left optus

@Jack_geckohi there!   Good to hear. If they dont ring back ring them again. They're not good at ringing back when they say they will. Only of they want money lol 

Hope you can get this sorted.

I've been waiting for months now for the update on the Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge, it looked like there was some progress and now there are no tentative dates listed.

 

So I've opted to update from Android Geeks :  http://www.android.gs/update-samsung-galaxy-s6-edge-g925i-to-android-7-0-nougat-manually/

 

Update is completed and the phone has updated to recent build by OTA on it's own and everything is running perfectly
