Re: When is Jelly Bean update for Optimus G?

I agree with all above. This is yet another diapointing display of AT&T's support for a flagship android phone. 

 

I had the Galaxy S2 when it came out, and was promised the ICS upgrade in "Q1" of 2012, but didn't acutally recieve the upgrade till early July. Now I have the LG Optimus G. I preordered the Optimus G partly because I was told that LG was going to working hard to push the Jelly Bean update out as soon as possible. Yet I am back on the forums airing the dirty laundry while Sprint customers enjoy the new OS. 

 

AT&T needs to understand that most current Android users will choose Android over and over because it offeres cutting edge hardware coupled with the most frequently imporving OS. By not investing in the timly release of updates AT&T is pushing the passionate fans to carriers that actually support thier customers after point of sale.

 

 

At least offer those waiting patiently a time frame!!!

Best thing to do is to have everyone with a CGOG or waiting for the update to call customer support and at least let them know you want JB.

I think that it would help if we even knew it was being worked on at this point.

Re: When is Jelly Bean update for Optimus G?

From what I remember, Samsung and LG gave the updates to AT&T around the same time, yet the GS3 has had it from AT&T for months now, and we are sitting here holding the sh*t end of the stick with the better phone.... what's the deal at&t???

That's exactly the reason I bought THIS phone

when I ugraded ,I was assured that the jelly bean update was going to be released by the end of 2012

and here we are almost 4 moths later

Another week and still not even a word about it. Now even the Droid 4 has it, and I'm sure that phone sold far less than this one did!

JUST about to get the Optimus G, but HESITANT because no word on updates for the device! Smiley Surprised so let me scour the net first.. otherwise AT&T - step on it - you're upsetting your customers who have already waited a few months!!

Re: When is Jelly Bean update for Optimus G?

I agree. To be honest, I only switched to Android OS because I wanted to be up to date with technology. When an update becomes available I immediately investigate when my phone will be receiving it. Like many, I am a diehard Android fan.

I'm saying this is because I was promised a timely OS update on the last two phones (Galaxy S2 now LGOG) I have used on AT&T. In both these instances the other carrier's versions of the phone got the update before AT&T got around to it, and I was left without a realistic time frame or answers.

When you sell premier products the customer's satisfaction has to be the main concern so don't keep us in the dark. Throw us a bone here and give us a reason to be excited again!

Re: When is Jelly Bean update for Optimus G?

Smh...i just got done talking to a AT&T tech and she says they already tested our jellybean version of our phone but it's having tons of problems which is why they haven't released it nor gave us a notice....she says they have been working on the problems all this time smh...my simple solution to this is for them to just move on to KLP(Key Lime Pie) update when it's available and keep us posted on everything (better to be up with the times anyway)....i have jellybean on my tablet so i'm over it....Just do it RIGHT the next time and give us KEY LIME PIE!!!

Re: When is Jelly Bean update for Optimus G?

I find it funny that they say it has all kinds of problems when even the CDMA version has had the update released.  Not to mention there are stable fully functional ports available for those that would want it a bit early and are willing to void warranties.

Re: When is Jelly Bean update for Optimus G?

In my opinion it has to be more to the story than the tons of problems theory.. but everywhere around us JB is pretty much alive and stabled with slight issues on other devices. I refuse to go back and forth again with a at&t rep that has valid answers for this situation when at the same time they want to play "don't snitch" rules and try to talk their way out of the discussion with the "there is no information on this matter sir"....just give us KLP when it's available AT&T!!!!!

Re: When is Jelly Bean update for Optimus G?

If that is a real story, then I assume they mean all of their bloatware, and system locks are causing problems and they can't figure out how to incorporate them.  Which also doesn't make sense since they have JB on other devices.  All the cheap Android phones are getting updated before this one, and no problem on those?

 

I guess I am going to shop around see what other phones are out there, and look at what other carriers have.  This was AT&T's one good phone, and they let it fall off the cliff.  Really, Sprint beat AT&T to the upgrade, how embarrassing.Smiley Embarassed
