 The Playbook

  •          Manufacturers make the phones and the software updates that go with them. When an update’s sent to us, we test it to make sure your phone won’t go all SkyNet, and then beam it down to you. Software updates are a bit like blockbuster movies too – manufacturers release them at different times around the globe. So keep this in mind when you see on the web that Narnia got the new version of Android before us

Check out the whole software update process in our 3 part blog post, If you’re keen for all the nitty-gritty.

  •          Just like Windows won’t work on an iPhone, we can’t hack the matrix and update phones we didn’t sell. If you got your phone from another telco (you know who), retailer or from overseas (yes, this includes our Vodafone cousins), we aren’t able to update it
  •          Because we can’t update phones from anywhere else, we can only spill the beans on updates for Vodafone Australia devices. As soon as we intercept the coded messages, it goes straight in this weekly post. So, if it’s not in the blog, we don’t know... yet
  •          We’ve got a few easy guidelines for when you’d like to comment or ask questions. This helps keep the blog safe for everyone. They’re short, sweet and will help you master the force

Got questions?

We've got answers! Double check we haven’t answered your question in The Playbook above, then post below.

More and more lame performance from both Samsung Australia and Vodafone. Kitkat 4.4 is over 8 months old OS now. Android Lollipop has already been announced. And yet people with last generation flagship devices like the Galaxy S4 are being deprived of Kitkat. 

 

I am definitely not getting a Samsung phone again. I would much rather shift to Nexus or HTC (happily).

@abrar_a how can Vodafone delay something that they have never seen? Put the blame where it belongs - on Samsung.

 

@nartoab International updates aren't suitable for the Australian market. The update has to be customised for local conditions and regulations. Why it's taking Samsung so long is anyone's guess, but it's not Vodafone's fault as they don't write the updates. 

 

@deepaksathish92 this is Vodafone Australia. You need to talk to Vodafone India:  http://vodafone.in

Hello brother , indian phones will receive the update only after PTCRB approves new build number for the update... so it may take another month or less than that for the update to roll out in india...,

Hi thanks for release the firmware 17.1.1.A.0.402 for my xperia z2, however, I found a change that may not benefit me as well as my phone. The thermal control is set higher (from 40 degree to 43 degree) which I think a bit hotter than the last firmware version at just 40. I wonder is it ok to use the phone at that 43 degree for a period of time (like one hour)? Otherwise the camera and app work fine and nice.

We get that you're keen to grab that Kitkat update, and we'll always do what we can to get it to you as quickly as possible. 

There's a lot that goes on in between the update being announced and it arriving to your phone. If you're keen on more info around the process we've got a few blog posts that walk you through the journey here.

The Software from Samsung's on it's way soon, so it keep an eye on our Software Updates for more info. If you haven't already, click the 'Subscribe' link at the top of this page and we'll give you a heads each time they're posted.

Dont bother waiting for Kitkat. If I knew I wouldnt even install it. My Note 3 finally received it last week and I have to say that Vodafone failed yet again. My Note 3 was performing quite well as for battery and now it just sucks. Why is Vodafone bothers with testing if than they release something which has a issue. Always the biggest battery user was the screen, now its the Android System (18%), followed by Android OS (12%) and then screen (9%). The battery just keeps disapering even the phone is not being used.
