Still no Oreo.

So apparently HMD Global still did not update the phone for all regions according to their probably outsourced support and they cannot provide any estimate for it.

Still no Oreo.

    Same here and what is so funny is that they say your network provider tests it as well. I asked BT mobile who I have my SIM card from and they said they don't test any firmware and that Nokia support are talking utter rubbish and need to get there act together

    Hi I have a BT sim in my Nokia 8. I received Oreo very shortly after the public release was announced and the December security update arrived yesterday. I did nothing to initiate these updates, they simply arrived. I can only conclude from this is that the updates are made available in waves and yours will arrive in due course.

    I've had a replacement phone due to headphone jack issues.
    Old phone got Oreo straight away after going through all the various security updates first.

    Replacement phone been waiting for it for 2 days...same SIM card, same accounts, same everything. So, yes they are at it. Should have it as it nothing to do with my Network.

    I have just bought my Nokia 8. No Oreo update at all yet which is disappointing. I have received up to Nov patch. I thought my one plus 2 was bad for updates but it had the Nov security patch on android 6... What's more annoying is that this update is sat out there in the ether just waiting to be pushed out. Some have it some don't and that's the frustrating part.

    I'm most annoyed by the fact I HAD it on my previous phone that got replaced by this one. Exact same SIM card, so same network, region, settings ect ect and they just have no real answer as to why I don't have it. "Just keep checking..."

    I came from OnePlus with a OnePlus 2 so was used to crap customer service so was expecting better, have been pretty disappointed so far it has to be said. At least with OnePlus by now I'd have a direct link to download to install it myself from them if I wanted but Nokia aren't giving us that option either
    At least

    I miss being with oneplus having the ability to download and install the OS. I have the same issue. Returned a Nokia 8 with Oreo but still waiting for it with this one. Nokia support are the worst I have ever come across. My favourite bullcrapp answer is that my network provider tests the OS. BT mobile said Nokia are taking utter rubbish as they do not touch the OS

    Yes, was put off One Plus by their lies and broken promises. Lack of fixes and updates.

    HMD/Nokia are new at this so will get a bit of leeway to start with but have to admit I'm not very happy so far and have my worries

    Sent mine back and got a HTC U11.

    Shame cos I really liked the Nokia 8 - but after the Oreo Update broke Google Inbox notifications and I realised there was no easy way to rollback...

    I have had a gander at some other threads and that Anna moderator has replied to ppl and took their IMEI number to try and sort it out for them and things like that.

    This Nokia 8 Group and it's threads are obviously not worthy of attention of someone who can do something

    I've contacted Nokia and they said they can do nothing and cannot push the update with IMEI. No one has offered to take my IMEI to look into it as still no 8.0 but had it on a returned Nokia 8

    They really do need to learn the good lessons from what One Plus done and then not screw up on the promises and timescales like One Plus did.

    There's only so much "living off your past name" you get away with. I think this phone has potential, just not convinced so far that they'll deliver that potential...hope I'm proved wrong
