How do I unsubscribe from this thread? I keep getting notifications, and now that my handset is unbranded( not affecting the manufacturer warranty or any Insurance on device whatsoever), I just don't need the disappointment of being told over & over that a security update due in December will be arriving soon. So please, can someone tell me how I unsubscribe from this?

Hi @Spitfire400

The only way to unsubscribe is to go to the top left hand side of the page and click on topic options, In the drop down box you will see an option to unsubscribe from this topic.

The only downside is, when the page is full and moves onto a new one, the notifications will start coming in again and you have to repeat the process.

This is a real problem with Lithium ...you can't actually unsubscribe totally (as far as I know)

I responded once on this topic and I keep having notifications, I 'unsubscribe' on a daily basis!

Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

You have to do it every time a new page starts or go into your profile and turn off the notifications for everything.

I know it's a pain....but as I said, you have to do it every time the page fills with 20 posts.

I personally steer clear of the iPhone release threads every September.

As someone with a Samsung, it's infuriating if you post once on that thread (which can go on for for 200 pages) and you get notifications ad infinitum.

I can never understand why, if you unsubscribe, Lithium feels you would like to join in again after one page is full. Evil

Official O2 twitter have said it'll weeks yet. O2 are the last major network in the UK (and the world) to release the update. It is a poor show, if it was a few days people wouldn't mind but to be at least a month behind is pathetic. It's not as if O2's network is amazingly ahead of the others tech wise.

 

I gave up waiting and flashed the Official Samsung BTU(UK) Oreo firmware and everything works, when O2 can finally be bothered to release it sometime around Christmas I might flash that one.

Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

I gave up waiting for an adequate/meaningful response via this medium so I've now raised an official complaint via the customer services helpdesk. I would advise any of my fellow customers who are also unhappy with O2 in this matter to do the same. The more of us that complain the more likely they might start taking us seriously on these issues. You do have to wait 24 hours for an acknowledgement then a further 5 working days for a formal response however. Will let you know how I get on.

Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

@CraigR doing the same this evening, fed up waiting. What's the difference between Samsung btu and o2 version? Just bloatware?
