i bought my phone from amazon.de and it was sold unlocked. also, it was from amazon and not a third party using amazon as an outlet.
my question is this:
if my handset is unlocked, how do i receive an update for the OS. does it rely on the SIM card i put in? ie, if i put a Tmobile (germany, im living in germany at the moment) SIM in it, should i get the Tmobile update? (2.3.5 available to Tmobile in Germany since November 2011 - http://devsrom4android.blogspot.com/...dates-via.html)
so far i have not been able to get any update, just a message in Kies saying that the phone is up to date and from settings>about>update the same thing.
not overly fussed as the phone is gorgeous and i am loving it but i have that faint gut feeling that they are going to pull an i8910 on me again. i dont want to miss an update because i bought an unlocked phone, come on samsung, wheres your own software version?!
i should mention, i am not keen on the idea of rooting my phone
thanks all =)
