Phone will not update

Jump to solution

I have a Samsung S8+ and I haven't received any software or security patch updates. I am still running Android N with Security Patch August 1, 2017. I have tried factory reset, wipe partition cache , safe mode, forced the check software update under settings and samsung smart switch using my computer. I have contacted both Samsung and Cricket about this issue and have gotten absolutely nowhere and not to mention I took my phone to AT&T and they couldn't even figure it out. If anyone could please help me that would be great.

@eaganm Carrier updates only go out to phones branded to that service so only Cricket branded phones will get updates from Cricket. If yours is from another carrier you'll either need to go directly to Samsung or put an active sim from that carrier in your phone.

Well that sucks considering that I have an AT&T branded phone and Cricket is a sub of at&t. Seems to me that if Cricket allows boyd devices that they should be implementing a way to get us the os updates. Other carriers have similar plans now a days and switching is an option I know that I'm considering because of this.
