Samsung Ativ S Neo and phone 8.1

Any guess if the ATT samsung phone will ever see an update?  I think ATT could at least give an indication of when or if particular phones will get updated.

Re: Samsung Ativ S Neo and phone 8.1

I too want to know. I posted one in a separate thread about this a couple of days ago. It would be good if ATT rep. would give us some indication. I am expecting this phone to be updated since it is still being sold and supported by AT&T. Please let us know!!

Not sure I understand - do you mean update phone unofficially? What new features will be coming next week?

Thanks for any clarification.

Thanks. I will wait for AT&T to roll out the update since not doing so would invalidate the warranty. If they don't maybe I'll go that route.

Has anybody successfully updated Samsung ATIV S Neo (SGH-I187), OS Versin: 8.0.10512.142 to Windows phone 8.1? Any success/failure stories would be helpful to the community. Or, waiting for ATT rep to confirm that the phone will be updated.

Re: Samsung Ativ S Neo and phone 8.1

I just finished a 'live chat' with AT&T tech support about this upgrade. They had no clue. Unfortunately I have been down this road before with a previous Samsung phone with the upgrade from 7.0 to 7.5. You would think I had learned my lesson. If this upgrade EVER comes through I will be pleasantly surprised. Our Samsung phone is no longer listed on the AT&T web site so we are probably totally screwed.

I noticed that Samsung has posted an updated user manual, dated 9/9/2014, for the ATIV S Neo Windows 8.1 

 

How long before AT&T will push out the updated?

Re: Samsung Ativ S Neo and phone 8.1

Here is some good news. I went ahead and updated Samsung ATIV S Neo (SGH-I187) to Win phone 8.1 (8.10.14176.243). It went flawlessly and the phone is working great with Cortana and all that.

Those of you who feel the AT&T is not going to update it can do so unofficially if you so desire. I just followed the instructions in: http://unleashthephones.com/2014/04/14/how-to-update-to-windows-phone-8-1-preview/

It updated the software  four times till it got to the final 8.1 version.

Hope this helps.

This was STUPID EASY!!!!  I also had to go through about 4 updates to get to 8.1 but it took a total of about 30 minutes all together.  THANK YOU!!!!
