    I have auto updates set on my phone and still haven't received the OTA update for Pie. Has anyone in the UK received this update?

    If your device is Three branded it's not available for you as of yet.

    If your device is unlocked but you're using a carrier that sells the razer phone 2, try putting in a sim from another carrier.. i did that and the update popped up in a few seconds

    Three Sweden has confirmed that if the phone is sold by three, it hasn't received the update yet regardless of unlock or lock phone and carrier SIM card. Have to wait :slightly_sad:

    Yep due to the ROM being three branded.

    I will say this: getting unlocked phones is (usually) the best option. In most cases, they get the fastest support from the manufacturer, since they don't have to go through any carrier approval process, or are forced to include any carrier bloatware (I don't know if the ATT&T or Three branded versions of the RP2 include bloat, but my history has shown this is likely).

    To give you an idea of my history with Android, the phones I've owned were Motorola Droid 2 (Verizon), Motorola Droid 4 (Verizon), Moto X (unlocked), Moto X 3rd gen (unlocked), LG G6 (T-Mobile), and now the Razer Phone 2 (unlocked).

    The three unlocked phones I owned either received updates faster than their carrier-branded variants, or received support longer (Motorola is somehat infamous for having dropped update support entirely for some carrier-branded phones). The Verizon- and T-Mobile-branded phones had extra software included that couldn't be uninstalled (well, not without root, that is).

    The only real downside to buying an unlocked phone is the cost. Carriers will often allow you to pay off the phone over several months, whereas financing might not always be an option with unlocked devices. Not to mention, carriers are quick to put Android phones on sale (for example, that LG G6 was on a buy1get1free deal with a family member).

    But, as long as the unlocked model fully supports your carrier's bands (in my case, yes, the RP2 supports all of T-Mobile's bands, which was the biggest deciding factor for getting it over Asus's ROG Phone)? I say go unlocked. You know, as long as you can afford the cost.

    Well said! Unlocked is always the way to go (except for Samsung)

    In other words, Razer is still looking into it, but have no confirmation, one way or the other, if the Razer Phone 1 will receive 9.0.

    I would say it's more than capable of doing so... but it's going to depend on how dedicated Razer is to supporting their devices.

    Speaking of updates,

    Is the build number for my unlocked device RZ35-0259 is the correct one? Build number is O-MR0-RC009.2-RZR-181013.1136. The device is running Android 8.1.0 on October 5, 2018 security patch. Kernel version is 4.9.65-perf+ (gcc version 4.9.x 20150123 (prerelease) (GCC)).

    I am expecting the Android 9 update to be pushed to my device, however I have yet to receive it.

    Eek, I got a reply from Support . Totally crossing my fingers for the Pie update to be pushed through my device.
