T-Mobile initiated the process of rolling out an update for the flagship smartphone of Samsung, Galaxy S5, last week but it has stopped it now. The reasons for the same are still unknown.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is termed as one of the most premium smartphones available in the market, boasting several high-end features and specifications, making it worthy of the flagship title.
The new update supposed to be released by the carrier was aimed at bringing a fix to the issue causing intermittent SMS/MMS message failures. The carrier has still not disclosed the reason why it has decided to pull the update soon after it started pushing it.
However, T-Mobile has confirmed that the rolling out of the update “as been paused.” The operator failed to mention whether the pause is a result of delivery issues with the aforementioned SMS/MMS problem or some other issues aroused as a result of the update.
T-Mobile has been quoted saying on the Galaxy S5 support page that “The Samsung Galaxy S 5 Software update to G900TUVU1ANE5 via OTA or Kies has been paused. This post will be updated when further details are available.”
T-Mobile started pushing the update on May 22 2014, and was supposed to complete the process by June 10 2014, but instead stopped pushing the new software.
