I'm just waiting to get an update from SAMSUNG for my S7 Edge as the phone i have is a POS to start with for calls Once they get the kinks worked out for the Network on my phone i might be happy with it but as it stands it is only a TXT'ing phone as that seems to work flawlessly. I have complained about the phone since i got it and telus said there was nothing they could do for me unless i bought out the phone and got a new one with an upgraded contract... so i originally went from $40 to 45+20 for data now i pay 55+30 for data which i never use as the network LTE is turned off and i only use WIFI and for 300 minutes i only use 5 minutes per month... i am better off cancelling my contract and going pay as you go... for me it makes alot more sense
Actually, the page should be renamed "Update History"
"Schedule" refers to plans for the future, but this page is never about the future. Now and again it is updated to the present, but not in more than one year has it been about the future.
If I didn't care about my customers, I would do the same: act like I do not care. But do they care? I'm not saying they don't, just as if they don't.
At least I know they didn't release the Pixel update in the past, as of May 7.
Seriously, if it was named "Update History" that would make more sense with the track record of the page. I keep half hoping for a schedule, but it's always just a history.
WELL i got up this morning and did a manual software update check and low and behold there it is a 1.3Gb download waiting in the wings mind you i never received the OTA notification but it was there now i have 8.0.0 running on the Samsung s7 Edge hopefully the phone will act a little better and am hoping that the call drop feature has been resolved new Base-band G935W8VLU3CRE3 and build is R16NW.G935W8VLU3CRE3 like i say i have the s9+ and i just haven't been able to pry the s7 away from my hand and use it yet still in the box after 4 weeks after acquiring it

My S9+ Finally has WiFi calling.
Took 3 hours to setup....there's a bug in the update, and Telus support had to mess around with it for, yes, 3 hours, to get it to enable properly.
What a nightmare.
Now bring on VISUAL VOICEMAIL.
Samsung hasn't released anything in North America yet. The S9 will get it first. Eventually the S8 will also, likely a couple months+ after the S9. Samsung likes to release updates on a country by country basis. Typically starting in Europe.
Now depending on which website you look at, the release dates vary a couple months. The dates also don't specify which country the release date is for either. German S9s were the first to get Pie. One listing I found shows a list of countries that will be getting Pie sooner. USA and Canada are not on that list. Canada usually gets the update after the USA gets it. It would be nice if Samsung just had a global release rather than staggering it.
Wonder why Telus does not post any OS Update Schedule?
Telus did in the past, but it created expectations of those releases being on time, and Telus took the heat for delays caused by manufacturers or other issues, and spent time responding to inquiries about delays. It became sensible for them to move to providing info once updates are released, so folks can confirm, rather than anticipate.
Unfortunately once a Samsung device is 2 generations old, they typically abandon it. I'm in the same boat with my S7.
problem is it took them 1.5 years to get the phone sorted out to the point it stopped dropping calls and hollowness sounds like your in a tunnel when talking, only to find out it may have been my sim card. i have no issues with the phone now and i refuse to give it up even though i have a brand new iphone 7 plus and a s9+ sitting in their respective boxes.. not sure if it is the size of the phone or not but the s7 edge is the right size and weight for me and what i di. i refuse to sign a new 2 year contract as in a couple month i think i am giving up my phone as i don't use it much
Looks like Rogers is scheduled to release the OTA on February 7th now(Pushed Back from the 4th) Hopefully that means Telus will release it soon.
