When will ee provide updates for Samsung Galaxy S8?

When will EE provide updates for the Samsung Galaxy S8? The status bar is still the same way, and different networks have provided the update weeks ago.

@Luisornelas For some reason Ee are always behind and the last to do the updates no one really knows why but unfortunately we just have to wait

@BrendonH - Have you got a BTU unit?   Do you get both VOLTE and Wifi calling?   Wondering if it's worth me flashing the BTU again to get updates. 🙂

Samsung on twitter no interested in helping put pressure on EE either.  We just have to sit and wait apparently.  😞

@terracuk Wifi calling works on Btu Volte doesn't hence why we are stuck with EE's slow updates

The fact that 3 hasn't updated doesn't mean a lot to me they are hardly in the same class as Ee and the fact that the other networks that are Voda o2 have all done it means Ee are messing about again

@terracuk Volte is important to me and deep down I think Ee know that hence why they are never in any hurry to release updates  as they know customers have no choice

When I had BTU on my device wifi calling wouldn't work and the setting wasn't there for it either.

 

So I had to flash H3G firmware.

 

I am unsure if newer versions of BTU now has wifi calling or not.

Re: When will ee provide updates for Samsung Galaxy S8?

All the bugs and needed fixes asde...

More worryingly is that the security is still at April. Does EE care about potentially leaving my phone at risk?

I hope they are going to accept responsibility for anything that happens to my phone because of this.

Very poor really for a flagship phone at flagship price but substandard updating.

 

I also assume we won't see bixby etc until the S12 arrives?

@corky100 That's strange as I thought the standard normally gets it before the plus.

 

i think it will be imminent now

Samsung updates site is saying it started to become available this morning for EVR.   No sign of it on my handset yet.  Anyone else got it? 

 

Not appeared yet on Sammobile.  O2 was also out this morning.

@corky100- mate, can you double jeck the security patch date for AQF7 for us?  I received that update overnight 17/18 July  at security patch is dated 1 June.

 

Apart from option to remove the bottom nav bar, haven't seen any other changes (unless that's why I can't get 4G or 4G+  in central London this eve)... Still no Bixby voice!
