The update schedule says the Android N update for the Samsung J3 was to go out Oct. 23rd. My J3 has still not received it. Anyone else get it?

Android updates are always lagging behind (makes the fracturing of versions worse).  The manufacturer blames the carrier.  The carrier blames the manufacturer.  I always plan for 0-1 update on my device over it's 2-3 year life

No, I bought it unlocked and never used. Put the Koodo sim in and it worked

If the device was bought unlocked and not through the carrier then Samsung would be responsible to push the update to your phone

You properly need to check in with Samsung and if they have update for specific version you had. I recalled J3 has 2 version 2016, and 2017? That update might specifically be for 2017 version.

@Rick

J3 is probably the Lowest Level of Samsung Phones. Not all of them will be upgraded to the newest Android. You have to check with Samsung if it is the case.
