Firmware & settings

Hi

 

 Just a quick question... I have just signed up to EE on a SIM Only plan to put in my Vodafone Galaxy Note 4.. which as you know will have Vodafone version of Android 4.4.4, can I update this to use EE Android? 

 

 Just a question, I expect I will never do it, I may just buy an EE handset at some stage just wondered if it was an option and would it benefit me.

 

 Also, as I have joined on a SIM only plan when my SIM arrives will I need to change any setting on my handset as it is a Vodafone handset? i.e APN settings etc or will these be automatically adjusted/sent by text when the SIM is installed?

 

Stuart

Re: Firmware & settungs

@stuarttunstall The Apn settings should change by themselves.

 

Theres no advantage really to putting EE firmware on it as it won't give you any extra features your better off leaving it as it is to be honest

@stuarttunstall. You'll probably need to update the APN settings,  sometimes it sorts itself out though.  

 

@Northerner. Can give you more information if it's worth putting EE branded Android on it.

Re: Firmware & settungs

Thanks for the reply .. 

 

I have put a PAYG EE Sim in my old S3 to test the network before I signed up, just looked at the APN setting in that and it states T-Mobile so I presume that one automatically changed, maybe the Note 4 will do the same 🙂 

 

I presume T Mobile is correct.

Excellent, thank you 🙂  

 

It was just a thought, but as I say I may upgrade the SIM Only plan to a new handset in the future 🙂 

 

Just need to wait for the SIM to arrive now Lol ...

Re: Firmware & settings

Yes 🙂 I got the unlock code about a week ago, which as I am in contract for anoth 6 weeks surprised me... 

 

I put a Virgin SIM I have to test the unlock code and it worked OK 🙂
