I just wanted to warn a user who admittedly didn't know what he was doing about the risks. But I'm glad it worked out for you guys!
That said I'm a little off on certain details about build numbers and model numbers. See, even if model numbers match (SM-G930W8) the build number and CSC do not.
Bell's PDA is G930W8VLU2BQB6 and its CSC is G930W8OYA2BQB6 whereas Telus' PDA is G930W8VLU2APK3 and its CSC is G930W8OYA2APK3. I don't know if this could cause an issue with the device.
Also, once you've updated to the Bell version, will you have to switch to Bell for each update?
Just go to Samsmobile sign up for an account go to firmware and search, i have bell 7.0 running on my s7 edge make sure to use samsung switch and do a backup then odin3 make sure to use odin3_v3.12.5,
do not waste your time with telus as soon as my contract is up see yea im heading over to bell as they seem to up to date on the roll outs
so you just lost a 24years of loyal service telus see ya.
Yep time to switch companies for sure. Looking at Bell Plans had a phone with them and never had this much trouble getting an answer from a company. Telus does not have a ounce of respect for its customers, still no update date while the rest of the companies have rolled it out or have a date.
After upgrading the S7 edge to the Nougat 7.0.
Do you guys still have the tethering icon for the quick setting? Mine is missing.
I can't find any way to add it there, can only do it the hard way, settings->connections->Mobile hotspot and tethering
Wow, if the delivery speed of a software update is the main qualifier to your choice of service provider, you have super-low standards and you'll fit better with Bell or Rogers. Telus won't miss you.
I use my devices for business. I'm not bothered. My devices are secure. OS updates are not the only way to secure your devices.
Then I forgot to add: when actual security is at risk, as with Stagefright, Samsung and Telus get patches out very quickly. Security updates in OS upgrades are not of paramount importance.
