    And again the S9/S9+ is still on February for most users, smh T-Mobile

    • Alex Wagner

      Yeah, kind of strange what’s going on with the S9 and S9+. Hopefully that situation gets resolved soon.

      • Bob

        Same here. Software update says the phone is “up to date” but am on the Feb. security patch.

  • Mike Taylor

    Am I missing something here?? Why does a phone over a year old get the June update but my brand new S9 is stuck on February?? WTF is going on??

    • BigDaddy

      I have the same question. Doesn’t make sense unless there were other major issues they needed to fix in the s8 software before focusing on the security patch for s9

      • EffortLess

        I’ve been using the unreleased S9+ updates and the latest is definitely much smoother, battery lasts 30 hours with 4+ hours screen on time and the black crush screen issues are fixed. It is taking them a while, but it’ll definitely be worth the wait for everyone.

    Saw a post on reddit from a verified T-Mobile employee that says we should get up to date this week on the S9/S9+

    • Kevna

      Bout time

      • bkat11

        I hope…but I’m not losing any sleep over it. I’d like to see some camera upgrades with the update

        • Kevna

          Do you have HD video with your current plan?

        • bkat11

          Yes

        • Kevna

          Well just curious If yours is currently working. Mine is definitely being throttled to 480p and I confirmed this using the “fast” speed test app because it comes back around 1.5Mbps everytime.

        • Kevna

          Already reached out to T-Mobile and they have started a ticket. Wanted to know if its effecting everyone or just me

        • bkat11

          Yeah not here…I have to manually switch resolution with YouTube but everything else is in 1080. I can tell the diff

        • Kevna

          Yeah I can tell the difference too, but now mine just buffers anytime I try to stream HD.

        • bkat11

          You hit the 50 GB cap?

        • Kevna

          No was at about 12gb for last month and my month just reset yesterday and still throttling. It’s only on video, regular speed test I get 50Mpbs+ ,seems like they have it setup wrong. Confirmed its enabled, even disabled and enabled again. Still being throttled. Thanks for the help tho

        • bkat11

          You could reset all settings to default

        • Kevna

          What do you mean by that?

        • bkat11

          Settings–> general management–> reset–> reset settings to default

          Not a complete reset just resets all settings

        • Kevna

          Thanks, just tried that, didn’t work. I’m convinced it’s some kind of provisioning on their end. Like I said it’s only video feeds that are being throttled. Download speeds are good for everything that’s not video

        • bkat11

          Hmmm…that’s a stumper

        • Kevna

          After many days and hours and 2 separate trouble tickets TMobile finally admitted they were throttling my video feed. They said that they had to reset my hd video profile on their network, or something like that. Anyway my video is now working like it should.

          Do you have your binge on option on?

        • Justice26

          By phone
          First, to determine if Binge On is enabled, simply use your phone to dial #BNG# (#264#).
          If Binge On is enabled, you should see this message: “Binge On is currently enabled.”
          To disable, dial #263#.
          Just follow the on-screen instructions to disable Binge On. You can dial #BNG# anytime to determine if Binge On is activated on your device. Shortcuts: Dial #BON# (#266#) to enable Binge On, or #BOF# (#263#) to disable Binge On.
          If you make a change, you should see a message that confirms your request.

          On My T-Mobile
          Visit My T-Mobile and log in.
          Enable or disable Binge On by turning it on or off directly from the home page.

          On the T-Mobile App
          Download the T-Mobile app and open it.
          Scroll down to the Binge On tile.
          Select Change settings.
          Select Media Settings. (You might have to log in again.)
          Under Binge On, select if you want it to be on or off.

        • Kevna

          Thanks for help dude but I’m on the T-mobile one plan which is unlimited. Binge on is from the older plans. I am paying extra for the “one plus”feature which includes hd video and trust me I have checked many times to make sure it is enabled. I even turned it off and back on. I’ve been on this same plan since it came out and never had any issue until like a month ago.
