Software Update: LG V40 ThinQ - Android Pie

Where is the Android 9 Pie release for our LG V40 ThinQ phones ?? - last update received was back in March 2019 !!

This is pitiful Sprint - especially since other carriers are already releasing Pie for there V40's !!!

Folks, I get the frustration when you're waiting for an update. We are typically notified about releases the day they come out, sometimes a day or two before.  When we know anything, we'll post about it here.  Until then, we appreciate your patience.

Verizon kicked it out to their V40s....at the end of May...with the April security patch.... 2 ish weeks ago..

 

 

TMO has yet to release it..heck their last update was in Feb..as mentioned here

https://support.t-mobile.com/thread/151131 they were scheduled to kick out Pie at the end of May as Verizon did however that was changed since issues were ran into during testing...

 

 

which wild guess is probably the same problem being ran into here

Please let us know what's going on with our promised Pie update? What is the big deal with Sprint being so late? Are your sprint implementation so much more complicated than others or what's going on? What about giving us a proper date?

 LG released it to all the carriers and the carriers make it compatible and release it to their Phone variant. All the carriers world wide have already released it. Verizon a CDMA carrier was the first one and att has the exact same variant as us, even if on another band they  have the same variant lg v40 as us LMv405UA and att was the second carrier in the us to release it then US Cellular variant then US tmobile variant was released. OH and US Cellular is the smallest carrier and they have the same Model variant also as us and att. LMv405UA.

the last time I contacted anyone at sprint they told me they were making sure there were going to be no problems with the update before releasing it and they were aiming for beginning of August. I spoke to the rep around July 22. and now it's September.

This is basically a microcosm of this whole time trying to get the update for my LG v40.
