Monthly Security Updates - yeah right

Just a quick post, I have a Factory Unlocked S9, which I keep updated to the last baseband/security update. This phone should still fall within the Samsung monthly security update plan. The current baseband was released on Sep 21, 2020. Today, it is 53 days old.

Join the crowd. My latest security patch is September and I have an unlocked S9+. I have another issue with my lack of 4G LTE. I keep getting the runaround on both fronts, so good luck.

Good luck getting any help from the Samsung moderators. I've sent them 3 PMs (2 on Monday) with no replies

Nine Plus Weeks - the Samsung Pro answer "Shut up and wait until you are deemed worthy." The US locked phones have gotten 3 updates since the Unlocked version was last updated. I know just for future buyers looking at Samsung for a phone and expecting it to be supported.

I'm beginning to feel like "unlocked" means "unworthy" to Samsung. Still looking for the October security patch and it's almost December!

they constantly blame the carriers. Google can update their phones monthly without carriers' approval. why can't Samsung.

FYI... factory unlocked phones like my SM-G960U1 receive their update directly from Samsung. An update to UI 2.5 and November 1, 2020 security update is available today.
