    Default How do I update prepaid Android's OS?

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Proclaim from Straight Talk.I have Android 2.3.6 installed.Whenever I click 'check for updates' it just says "Your system is currently up to date".

    I want the latest version or at least Android 4.0

    There is a chance that the device in question has not had a OS optimized for it, and therefore will not receive the update in the normal fashion. The only other way to go about the update would be to root and install a custom room that is based off 4.x.x. However if you choose to root be sure to read up on things first as there is some risk involved.

    It would have to be pushed by either the manufacturer or the carrier. Prepaid does get OTA though, my Verizon moto g was updated to 4.4.2 I believe

    I wouldn't be too surprised either if 2.3 is up to date for that device. I can try to remember to check later when I get done with work.
