    No I haven't either with a TA-1068.I didn't see this thread before posting this https://community.phones.nokia.com/support/discussions/topics/7000030946

    I guess I was to slow in typing it! There must be a blocking issue, I hope they have identified and resolved it. I also asked about Android P, and and why 802.11ac 5 GHz networks are visible but not connectable. If they truly aren't supported they shouldn't be showing.

    Personally I think those monthly security update are a little overrated. 6 months is better I think. Gives manufactures time to test the firmware with less pressure from angry users....

    That defeats the purpose of Android One. People refer to all the software on the phone as firmware. There is Nokia firmware (literally the phone BIOS, like a computer), and then the OS software, which is usually custom since it's open source and makes updating a lot more difficult. There is also a third thing, the driver packages, but ideally they shouldn't be affected unless there is an API!/framework change. Security updates should be relatively easy to apply, Google have improved this greatly with further improvements likely.

    I got that update too today. (TA-1043 with Telekom and Vodafone Germany SIMs) Unfortunately they didn't sneak in some fixes like options for VoLTE/VoWIFI, adding the missing setting in the launcher etc.

    July security update received for TA-1045, download size 87.7 MB. Took about 20 minutes from start to finish to update.

    I agree that it isn't really necessary to have them every month - every few months would be fine depending on what security issues are oustanding.


    But they really need to work on bug fixing.  Personally, I find it annoying that smart unlock (location) doesn't work on this phone.


    And many people have their fingers crossed that this July update fixes the camera.  Having such a badly broken camera is really unacceptable.

    It's just a security fix. No bug fix, although, there's nothing to fix on my phone except Bluetooth cell service reconnecting when leaving a underground parking.

    Anyone else in the US who has not received the July update?  I'm still on June and I wonder if it's across the board or just my lemon of a phone?

    I'm in Canada and I haven't received the July update. I have the 6.1 Model TA-1016, Android 8.1.0 with June update. Hope they're not forgetting about us in North America.

  • I'm on the US 6.1 and have Cricket, at&t mvno. I haven't received any July patch either

    Am in Canada too and I got the update, but I'm using TA-1045 - the US model.  I guess your TA-1016 is international model and that one hasn't got the update yet?

  • I have the US TA-1045 from Best buy. I've tried taking out some card and resting. Also manually checking several times a day.

    Again, I repeat...I'm on Wifi-only, no sim card and I haven't received the July update.  I WAS using a MVNO sim card but since now I'm on Wifi, doesn't that indicate it's not sim or carrier-related?

    I also don't receive update for July, I m using 1089

    TA-1043 Central Europe, no update so far.

  • Loads of us here in the UK with a Ta-1050 have not received the July update
  • Hopefully they have fixed the issue and the August updates are released in a timely manner. I suspect we may have to wait a few days or so after availability of the August update by Google as it's likely to be a maintenance and security release.
