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

Pixel 2 XL.

I received the April 1st security update when Im supposed to get April 5th per Google. The April 1st contains security breaches fix and it's the updated ASOP image. The April 5th update contains all the Pixel 2 XL hotfixes. I have an issue with cores not going to sleep and the hotfixes are in the April 5th.

I contacted Google they said all Pixel 2 XL should recieved the latest update which is April 5th. I contacted Telus and lvl. 3 support said that April 1st will be the only update pushed as April 5th is too "customized" per Telus standards ...

If this is the case, I am furious at Telus preventing Pixel users getting the latest update. I bought this phone to get fast updates and the carrier finds a way to bottleneck the updates.

I saw that the list isn't updated for the Pixel XL 2 ... Was I fed wrong information by corporate support ?I would like to have some answer if the April 5th update will get pushed.

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.

Does Telus have an OS Update Schedule anywhere? for S8+ and S9+?
Thanks

No. As discussed in previous posts in this thread, updates are now posted as they occur, rather than in advance.

Samsung is known for being slow to release major updates. https://www.theandroidsoul.com/samsung-android-9-pie-update/ has a chart of estimated release dates for the US. Canada is usually a little behind the US.

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.

Thanks for posting this, been looking for an update schedule, just hope Telus isn't as slow getting updates pushed out as they were in previous years.

Did anyone hear any rumors about S8/S9 & Samsung One (PIE) update?

 

Supposed to be January....but Telus likely delays it...

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.

And all I found was this list, which details roughly when each device receives it, not counting carrier delays..

Wonder why Telus does not post any OS Update Schedule? Rogers /Fido do - Not that it's guaranteed or particularly accurate but at least they bother. FYI on Rogers & Telus they are not showing anything for One UI... Nothing - not even into the end of the first week of February. Samsung may have released One UI to the Carriers, but then they want to "test" & add their Bloat... Happy I've been running One UI beta - Currently on CSA7 with the Canadian CSC / CP 👍
