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 20/04/2017. 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.

So I guess it's time Optus took a look in the top draw for the Sony update as it's clearly been missed. As I recall someone posted that Sony told them it had already been sent to Optus, now you can't go on hear say but if the other cariers have released it then I suspect it was sent to Optus for review so once again time to look artound the Optus office and see which crack it has fallen into, or better yet give Sony a call and ask them why you don't have the update yet when everyone one else has released it to their customers.

Hi .. did the latest update yesterday to my S7 ... many of the screen colours are now very washed out... but main issue is I nolonger get caller information on incoming calls, and the svreen locks during calls so I have to unlock to hang up.

 

Anyone else having these issues.. and suggestions to fix?

I'd like to know what the delay is with the P9 update. Australia non branded P9s have been getting the update since early Feb. Although if I had money to waste I'd throw the P9 in the bin. Great hardware ruined by EMui.


I seriously don't see why optus needs to brand phones in a way that makes many people miss updates. Sure put useful apps on new phones but don't add anymore unnecessary bloatware.

So the Huawei P9 for some reason is not getting an update, even when android 7.0 is available for it when you don't use an optus version?!

Optus is really starting to let all their customers down who are using Huawei phones.  Huawei are one of the best manufacturers for releasing firmware/security updates OTA for their phones.  Why can't we just update our phones directly from the manufacturer?  Optus is basically ruining what should be a fantastic experience.

 

For my part I'm using a Huawei Mate 9 which is stuck on the B122 firmware despite all other Mate 9's being on at least B182.  Further to that, there have been multiple firmwares released OTA in between, none of which have been released by Optus which provide signficant camera improvements, battery optimisation improvements and security fixes.  When can we expect Optus to push out these updates??

+1 for the P9

 

This is getting ridiculous. Why does the optus version need to be treated different to the unbranded Aust version? I can right now go and buy the unbranded Aust vresion and it would work fine on the Optus network. 

 

Next time my phone is due for renewal this is exactly what I will be doing.

I was wondering how to enable wifi calling on a samsung s7 edge. The phone is not an optus supplied device, but has VOLTE activated and operating and the phone is on a post paid plan.

 

I have had a look at the settings menu and there is no wifi calling sub menu  - the menu tree goes wifi then bluetooth.

 

Do I need to request wifi calling be added to the account?

 

I tried to load the wifi talk app onto the phone and the app store says that the device isnt compatible with the talk app, so wifi calling is the only option

 

Any advice most appreciated!
