 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.

Thanks for the update.   Is there any rumor on when HTC will release Windows 8.1 for the 8x?  HTC did say earlier this year they would release 8.1, but so far everything seems to be silent.

Hi,

 

What ever happened to the update for the K5150 4G USB Dongle that was in previous lists?  What was the fix meant to be delivering?  Is there still an update coming out or have I missed the release announcement?

 

Regards,

Ian.

Testing in progress.

Sony

Xperia Z2

The Maintenance release for the Z2 is in two parts:

Okay the first one is a Quick Maintenance release 1 or QMR1 .This software is now in testing with Vodafone.

 

Now the second one or QMR 2  the software is expected to be supplied to Vodafone by Sony sometime in July for testing. 

 

Hope this clarifies.
