Re: When is Jelly Bean update for Optimus G?

It is frustrating that there is still no Jellie Bean for the Optimus G. 

 

For all of you Nexus 4 owners, remember 2 more things besides the lack of LTE...

 

NO SD CARD.  My Optimus G has 48 GB.  How much does the Nexus have 8 GB, or 16 GB if you are lucky?

 

Also, oh yeah YOU CANT BUY ONE!  THEY ONLY MADE 400,000 OF THEM AND THEY WERE NEVER IN STOCK... 

 

Anyway, I have 4.2.2 on my Nexus 7 it is fantastic.  And it is stupid that the Optimus G software iscompletely outdated.

You couldn't buy one but now you can. And who needs that much storage and for what to carry songs and movies you will never listen to

The successor to the Optimus G will be available before this update will. No one wants AT&T bloatware, release the update already!!

Sprint also has released the Jelly Bean update for their Optimus G. Man Sad

 

AT&T, you are killing this great device by not supporting it. Man Mad

Dear AT&T, I have been a customer for over 4 years now. The service has been good and I'd be happy to recommend you to friends and family (many of whom are on Verizon), except that each device I've owned (the LGOG is #3) has been screwed by a lack of Android updates.

No one signs up because of the bloatware you load onto your phones, but they do leave for other carriers that offer better phones and timely updates. Please keep this in mind.

Re: When is Jelly Bean update for Optimus G?

I agree with the above. I'm getting tired of this lack of android support. Sprint already has the update and Verizon has the best Android devices... please roll this update out, or at least notify us when it can be expected.

Re: When is Jelly Bean update for Optimus G?

I wonder if AT&T realizes that these delays are the reason that people root and install custom ROMs?

Re: When is Jelly Bean update for Optimus G?

I am holding off on purchasing the LGOG, until I at least know that an update is coming.  I have been with AT&T ever since they bought Cellular One, then changed to Cingular then back to AT&T.  They certainly send me enough emails and snail mail asking me to upgrade, add service, or swicth to a different plan.  All we're asking for is a little info.

I'm at a point now where my contract is up and I am free to switch carriers if I like.  I've been a loyal customer to the same carrier (in one of its forms) for over 15 years.  A little courtesy back would be nice.

Why does The LGOG need JB? Not that anyone asked, but I have some time, so I'll type:

In my opinon the LGOG borders on too big, the Pro is too big, along with those samsung monsters.

I work and travel a lot I don't need a tablet hanging from my hip. but the LGOG is acceptable.

 

I don't need to keep up with all the social pages every second of the day. I couldn't care less what Jimmy's cat is doing under the dogs tail, or what drink Suzie is going to order at S*#$bucks,  So those goofy windows 8 phones, with their front ends and the like, are a waste of my data plan.  When I want to see a stick figure of Batman saying something funny to Spiderman, or another picture of a homeless, abused dog,  then I'll log on FB and get all I need.

 

I don't want my phone manufacturer to decide what files I can download and transfer, or control what media files I can have, I certainly don't need to use cloud services to access files that I own, it doesn't help when you on the road without a data plan for your laptop. so Apple is OUT!  And I don't want to spend the extra $40.00 a month for the one or two files I forgot to transfer before I left the office.  It's not worth it.

 

I need a good working phone, that lets me work the way I want to work, and Android JB is the first really good Android out there.

 

I liked the Atrix HD but lack of memory, and battery life shot that down. I'm not streaming or surfing a lot, but I am actually on the phone a lot, communicating like God meant us to communicate, verbally, over choppy, digital, wireless connections.  Smiley Very Happy

 

The HTC OX+ was nice but it dosn't have a MicroSD slot which I use often to transfer and store files. and it has that camera protrusion which make it look more like a toy.

 

All of the other AT&T phones are just toys.

 

The LGOG is the closest fit, its a little big (I can deal with that), its got good memory, sd slot, fast, slick with no protrusions, and awesome battery life.  It just needs the JB update.

 

So how about AT&T? throw us a bone!

Re: When is Jelly Bean update for Optimus G?

Bravo, well said. For those of us into productivity, JB adds one major feature that I desperately want, Google Now. Project Butter is just icing on top of that. The fact that EVERY other LGOG alreqxy has this and we don't have word one about it is ludicrous. I am a patient person, but I and my four line mobile share plan have my limits. And I am rapidly approaching them with this.

Agreed. The worst part is not knowing. What could AT&T be doing to JB to keep it for so long?
