Is O2 still providing updates for the LG v30? I think ive had 2 updates since i purchased the phone in december 2018, 1 being the Oreo update.
Other carriers from other regions seem to push out more updates for the device, some even pushing out an update in preparation for Android Pie.
Just curious as to where the device stands on updates.

@Chris_K confirmed this in the link below...
I did chat to an LG advisor last week, and was told that they have released 9.0 to their update servers.
Hopefully they are more reliable than the o2 chat team...

Hi thanks for the reply. Yes i did buy mine from carphone warehouse, on an O2 contract.
Iwasnt sure if O2 control the updates for this device being on its network, or if LG push out the updates directly to each region. The latest update i have on mine is v21w-EUR-XX , which has android security patch level at 1 January 2019. Is the the most current update?
My phone is still locked to O2, but If the phone is unlocked from O2, does that have any bearing on the update process?

According to the LG chat agent there should be a new one coming, but if they are as reliable as the o2 chat agents (hint: not at all) then it might just be fluff to get me off the chat...
If you buy a phone from CPW then it should be unlocked to any network.
In terms of updates, it means that it will come with "unbranded" software direct from the manufacturer. In theory this should be quicker as it will not have to go through o2 or another network but is likely to come out the same time as everything else.

Being rather wary of taking an answer from live chat at face value, I sent a message to the Twitter accounts of LG UK and LG customer care asking about a Pie update.
They asked me to DM them details of device etc, and they then said that currently there is no Pie update for the v30 that they know of.
So. Am rather disappointed (but not really surprised) that the two stories do not line up...

Unless it just all for South Korea?
The plot thickens ..

So it seems as though they might have been pushing it out but then had to stop.
Either way, bit poor to say "here is the update, it is coming" only to then have to go back on themselves...
