Any word from Telus as to when the update will be pushed to our devices?

I've seen the Telus OS Update Schedule for the S8 series & Note8. Says that they are scheduled to get One UI April 1st... I'd post the screen shot showing this but I don't think that it's possible here..

i have no idea i am sill using an s7 edge i do have a s9+ but i can't seem to get used to the size and weight of it.. as for wifi calling i have never used it but after the security update on the s7 edge my phone only works if someone calls me if i call them they can't hear me even if i yell at the phone so slowly they are disabling features and making us switch to newer phones...phone worked great till the last security update now it became a door stop/tire chock when i work on my car

@Mustang_Driver I really don't think anyone is purposely disabling features or breaking things to force you to upgrade.

I haven't seen any other complaining about the same issues.  Have you tried a factory reset to correct the issues?

i think the big companies do intentionally erase code in products near end of life because if they didn't then the older phones would still be in working order, after i installed the last security update my phone has done some whacky stuff even after i factory restarted it, i will only hold a charge for 3 hours now as to where it would be good for 2 days, will not connect via bluetooth to my OBD2 Sensor anymore,my bluetooth headphones only one side works now,ghost calls(nobody on the other end when you answer,when you call person that you called cannot hear you but you can hear them) so yeah some lines of code might be missing to make the phone seem like its acting like it's time to give it up but after June i am giving my contract up and NOT renewing it..... i pay close to 85 dollars per month for 300 minutes and 1 gig of data i think as canadians were are being over charged for everything as soon as it crosses the border verizon 4 lines w unlimited data for 100 per month i think i might go with Freedom mobile next but i need to look further into them..... 10gigs per month for 60 dollars that is still a better deal then i can get with telus even after talking to the retention team

@Mustang_Driver I know people using Galaxy S4s that still work fine.  Updates on flagships are only done for 3 years.  I also have an old S7 just received a security update the other day, still works great.  No issues.  

As for prices.  Yes, it's nuts for Canada, not just Telus.  But all the big one.  Freedom is great, IF you are within their coverage area.  Unfortunetely I am in Fort Erie and it's not quite there yet. There are too many surrounding blurbs of light orange.

Before I commit.  I need to see 100% coverage for the entire Niagara Region.

Ya know, it would be really nice just once, to receive a Security update on a Flagship phone in the same month the security update is for.

well for unlimited calling in canada and 10Gb+3Gb bonus for 50 dollars sure makes me wonder why i am paying 150per month for 2 phones... i could easily save myself 50 per month.... i pay 85 permonth for one line and 57 for the other this wireless thing is getting out of controlwith 3 main companies that control pricing like i said down in the USE you get 4 lines on unlimited calling and data and 4 new phones for 100 per month. we are getting screwed in canada and i have 1 more month and my contract is up and i am not renewing so we will see what happens next month

Did anyone receive s10+ camera update for night mode? I have April update but no night mode while other users have the night mode enables after the last update.

I was wondering the same thing.  Mobile Syrup said it was imminent over a month ago.  I'm really looking forward to this feature.

This was only in regards to the Exynos version.  The Snapdragon is getting the night mode in the upcoming June Security patch.

Did anyone receive an update for the Snapdragon i the night mode fix?

I received the July security update but I still have the issue when I run Android Auto.

Most of the Canadian Carriers have the OTA scheduled for October 1st - Just FYI 🐧

@Shaggyskunk Ya. I saw that as well. Guessing this was a error on whomever updated the chart and it will hit at midnight.

AWESOME to see Android 10 One UI 2.0 hitting the S10 series on December 16th.  This is by FAR the fastest update of an OS Canada has ever got.

Maybe, just maybe we will get it before the United States?  We are usually a month behind them!  Great news Telus!
