I do know that when I got my phone, the T-mobile representative had stated that the e-mail needed to be set up, and thereafter, that I would need to make a phone call. If both these items have already been done for you (Call I would expect, but e-mail maybe you just haven't set it up)...then I would suggest making sure you DO have the android data plan for the MT4G (I believe this may cause the error of not receiving updates). If all of the above is already taken care of, I would pull the battery while the phone is on, wait ten seconds, and re-insert...this should force the network to reset and maybe that is all you need. (After the reset, it may still take a few hours or so for the update to hit, would give it up to about 24 hours)
Okay I have had my phone now since it came out. I have my email setup I have made calls received texts and picture mail. I have even spent time surfing the web and making video calls.
I still have yet to receive the update. I'm not sure whats going on. The phone is fine and works with out it but I just think its kind of weird that I am like the only Mytouch 4G user out there that has not received the update a week after having the phone.
I have still not received the update from Tmobile to 1.17.531.2. I'm still on 1.14.531.... I've had my phone over a month and Tmobile has no idea why it is not updating. I just tried changing the APN setting mentioned by detwetter. Is there anyone else out there who has had the phone as long as I have and still not updated? Any other ideas in terms of what might work?
There used to be a way to "check for updates" on my old G1, but I haven't seen this on my MT4G yet. Does anyone know where it is on this phone? Or if there is an option similar? I thought this was something standard on Android and I have looked through all the settings (I think).
Not sure if this is what you are talking about or not....(didn't work for me)
