The updates are starting to roll out today, says T-Mo’s support pages, so you S9 and S9+ owners should keep an eye out for your update over the coming days.

    I updated my 7 but my 9 isn’t popping up yet

    • Kevna

      Same S9+

  • Kurt Schultz

    Hopefully it fixes the blurry photos when flash isn’t used.

  • Edwin Rodriguez

    I already got the update still on March

  • Chris

    I have the S9, and it’s failing to install the update. It runs through the install process to 100% then reboots and starts installing again in an endless cycle. Anyone else having this problem or have a solution for me? I can’t even turn the phone off

    • Paul Hansen

      Mine went through just fine. Only reason it should fail is a memory or storage hardware issue. I’d get it swapped.

    • Rick Farrell

      Mine is failing also. Gets 25% into installing the update, pauses for a bit, then reboots to start it all over again.

      • dennispg

        mine is doing the same thing, what did you do

        • Ryan Yongsik Shin

          did you install something? or block bloatware? I am scared to update…

    • SirStephenH

      Try doing a factory data reset and try again.

      • Meatman1976us

        It won’t let you do a master reset . You can’t get into the recovery mode and using the hardware keys do nothing

        • SirStephenH

          Sorry, I read your post wrong.

          Android usually allows you to get into recovery mode when this happens. Are you sure you’re doing it right? Samsung’s a bit different than other phones.

          “Begin by pressing the Power button for a couple of seconds to turn off the phone.

          After that hold down Volume Up + Bixby + Power button together for a short while.

          When Samsung Logo appears let go of all keys.

          If you see the Android logo with “No command” tap on the screen.”

          I do tech support and tried all you stated already and nothing has worked , I also took it to a samsung accredited tech store and they couldn’t fix it either, they tried to flash the software back on the phone and it didn’t work. A computer can’t recognize the device long enough for any type of flash. They said the update bricked the phone .

        • SirStephenH

          That sucks. I guess your best bet is to contact Samsung or T-Mobile about a replacement then.

    • Meatman1976us

      Mine is doing the same . It will not allow you to turn the phone off or get to the recovery screen . I called samsung they are sending me to one of there accredited stores to have my software flashed to fix it

    • Chris

      Tmobile online support told me to take it to a store. The store couldn’t figure it out so had to order me a replacement phone. Factory Reset and Safe Mode boots didn’t work and I couldn’t turn off the phone so had to just let the battery drain.

  • EEMonty

    Just received the update and loaded it. I have not had any issues with my S9. I do not see any real changes.

  • Noles

    My S9 + freezes everytime I leave split view apps. Hopefully this fixes it.

  • Richard Olchefski

    Got update this morning, now my SD card is not seen. All the pictures and videos on the card are not seen and when I check storage space it only shows the 64GB on the phone, not my 64GB SD card. I plugged the SD card into my computer and the card itself is just fine.

    • Richard Olchefski

      When I put the SD card back in, the Galaxy S9 recognized it. All is good.

  • John

    Since the update I can’t screenshot without the volume slider appearing. Is it just me?

    • Zach B.

      I just took a screenshot with the new update, I do not have any issues with the volume slider popping up.

    • steadymobb

      I think you’re just doing it wrong

      • John

        Lol… no

  • David Brown

    Updated fine.. But running hot and I think the battery is draining faster

    • CAL_08

      I thought I noticed mine running a little warmer too.

      • Kaulana1989

        Yeah mine is running really warm as well

      • chipwhip

        If that’s the case, I’m glad I didn’t get a update. I don’t want a warm phone.

    • Kaulana1989

      Yeah mine is running warm as well

  • Phil7474

    Updated yesterday seems fine with me

  • James miles

    Got it np as far as i can tell. Just curious anyone ever notice 600 mhz spectrum beeing used. My hometown supposbly has it but ive driven all over my town and try to find spectrum but app never picks it up, i got band 7 which is 2600mhz which i think it belongs to us cellular. Ive never gotten band 71 tmobile swears its on in hannibal mo. If it is they got ripped of buying the spectrum because i dont get any beter signal any where. Or they dont have it installed properly. Ive called tmobile one enginer said it wasnt installed right he suposibly fixed it but still never get it. I was realy hopping 600 would work.

  • Michael Lange

    My S9+ still doesn’t show the update.

    • chipwhip

      You’re not the only one. I guess we don’t count.

  • bkat11

    I read there is the April Security Update coming…per Sammobile

  • chipwhip

    I haven’t received an update on my s9 plus

    • Bob

      Neither have I. Mine shows it has the February security software and when I go to update the phone, it shows up to date.

      • chipwhip
