T-Mobile LG V20 receiving update with security patches and bug fixes

lgv20pairtmo

It’s been awhile since the LG V20 has gotten a software update, but that drought is ending this week.

T-Mobile is now pushing an update to the LG V20 that bumps it to software version H91810k. TmoNews reader AlwaysSmile got the update on their V20 today, and the phone is now on the May 1, 2017 security patch level.

According to T-Mobile’s support page, this LG V20 update also includes an e911 timer fix and “various bug fixes and software stability improvements.” So this isn’t the biggest or most feature-packed update ever, but considering how long it’s been since the V20 last got an update, it’s good to see T-Mobile and LG push some fresh security patches and bug fixes to the device.

If you’ve got a T-Mobile LG V20 and haven’t yet received this update, you can check for it by going into Settings > General > About phone > Update Center > System update > Check for update.

Thanks, AlwaysSmile!

    It’s about time. The messaging app from LG is pure garbage. It’s to buggy and is always force closing

    • Trevnerdio

      Mine managed to lose half the texts people sent me…I still haven’t figured that one out yet :)

    • Omar Cardenas

      Not on mine even without the update that i got today. Messaging was always fine never forced closed on me.

    • Deswaga

      I forgot what the messaging app is like especially after discovering Textra, its like the first app, besides Swiftkey, I make sure I have on a newer phone.

      You should try Android Messages.
      My stock app has been fine.

    • SirStephenH

      Manufacturer apps are always crap. Try Android Messages (official Google messaging app). I’ve never had a problem.

  • Trevnerdio

    This is the first time in my smartphone history I’ve ever read an article like this, hit check for update, and on day one, it just started downloading.

    • Deswaga

      lol… You are not alone on this one

  • riverhorse

    Best Tmo phone for the money ($480).

    • Corey Jalette

      Was even better when it was $360.

    • HeatFan786

      Samsung sold the S7 even cheaper than $360 from them directly in March.

  • Prode

    lol May 1, 2017 security update and it is May 26, 2017. Man I love how crappy Android updates are on non Google phones.

    • SirStephenH

      It would be a fairly simple process if they’d stop weighing phones down with unneeded crap.

    • Trevnerdio

      You know they have to test them right? Lol releasing in under a month is pretty good.

      • Prode

        the update is very basic just mainly security fixes. nothing major. Problem is all the crap company’s like lg and samsung put on top of android that needs extra testing. So what the security update fixed, you spent almost a month waiting to get the fix and are left vulnerable. This is not a problem is google phones.

        • Trevnerdio

          Honest question: do Google’s phones get these pretty much day one? Like May 1st?

        • Prode

          https://source.android.com/security/bulletin/

          That shows when the update is finished and when it is Published. Looks like within 4 days of the 1st of the month every month. I own an iPhone but when I did have an android it was only a Google Device.

    Thanks! I was hoping it was 7.1 but I guess this will hold me over.

  • Thanks! It’s a good news!
