well, I'm not that familiar with Android coming from Windows Mobile
nevertheless it looks like that the provider has quite some influence.
Also due to the high amount of phones sold by them.
So I guess Nokia would do it but they can't.
Can we stop creating more topics on this, there is already enough threads on Oreo and how to update in addition to the plethera of information on XDA and Reddit.
While you are adding to the discussion creating a new topic just adds to the confusion, I've written a detailed explaination about what is occuring and I don't believe Nokia have any control however they're not being very transparent with their consumers and that is the real issue.
@Derekrs were you on the beta labs?
I think you're on a whitelist however I do not have enough data about BT Mobile users to build up a picture their provisioning approval.
Without Nokia coming clean about the whole process we're in the dark.
@GEMINI75 it isn't Nokia blocking, it is how they have implemented the update process using carrier detection via the GSF.
If the carrier hasn't approved the update you won't receive it, Nokia could make a change to whitelist SIM free handsets however I am not sure how feesable that is.
