On the Google Pixel Community Boards, it seems that UK owners of the Pixel 2 XL who use O2 are not able to receive security patch updates OTA, without removing the sim and doing a factory reset each time. Apparently no such problems with EE. Anyone here experiencing the same issue?

Hi @Chris_K, still no update for me but a few O2 customers are reporting that they've got the update on the Google forum here that they've now received the update.


Thanks for the info/update Ian. Great to see some O2 customers see this update - it's common for vendors (Google/Samsung/HTC etc) to 'roll out' updates, sometimes maybe aiming for a 25% saturation rate the first day and then ramping up. I don't have access to this saturation/roll-out plan (that's typically decided entirely by the vendor) but generally speaking, most software roll-outs reach 100% saturation within a few days to a week.

If any O2 customer doesn't have the update yet, I suspect you should see it become available within the next few days.

@hayw77when you scroll down on that link, it does say this from one member..

 

"Being on O2 may be the issue. I know someone on O2 that has the same issue. She has not be able to get it to update. The current assumption is that O2 has not allowed it to officially roll out. I'm told that this is abnormal for O2. Past updates over O2 came very quickly. I can suggest a few things. 

 
First, submit this feedback from your phone. Got to settings > support & tips > at the bottom is "send feedback".
Second, try calling O2 and get an explanation from them or at the very least voice your concern/disappointment."

yes I saw that. I don't think O2 are aware that there is a problem so I wanted to highlight it on this forum to see if we can get it rsolved.

 

I don't believe O2 are holding up the OTA updates intentionally, I just think there is a technical issue between Google update servers and O2
