I have a Koodo Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3, bought from Koodo, and I wondered if/when there is an automated upgrade for Android 6 (Marshmallow). Right now it is 5.0.2, the same as when I bought it.

Two seconds of google searching turns up that a lot of people got the marshmallow update and it was corrupting SD cards and causing all kinds of issues. Maybe it's a blessing you didn't receive the update. I'll keep searching though as should you.

Thanks, no, I didnt recieve the update, despite google searching, otherwise I wouldn't have written a question here:) At least I know it's potentially a bad one though!

Did you go into your settings and manually check for an update? If not try that there may be one waiting

Thanks for the response, yes, nothing there since purchase, which was back in March, I think. Is there an offline download link, something like that, or does it have to get sent to you?
