  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.

@Lawrence_S Could you indicate what version of KitKat it is being tested for the Note 3 (e.g. 4.4 or 4.4.x)? I'm sure Vodafone knows exactly what version it is. Regards.

@SimgeYıldız unless you purchase a Nexus phone, you will never have the latest version of Android on your phone as soon as Google announces it. It's simply an impossibility.

@kjmci the point here is not what people should buy in order to have the latest software on their phones...but the fact that Samsung Australia promises something which they are themselves not sure about when they would be able to deliver, and is certainly two or may be 4 steps behind their siblings in overseas when it comes to upgrading to the next level android version (forget about having the latest one) to their Australian customers. This is the beginning of downfall of Samsung!! And I'm certainly not the one to have Samsung's next flagship. Goodbye Samsung Australia!
