So, with all the hub-bub of the new and latest phones out there, we tend to forget about the puppies we bought not that long ago and still need love and care. These older phones also need updates.
Good thing Telus believes so too, or at least they’re letting us know which phones are getting these updates and putting them on a permanent spot on their site.

This is a pretty decent list!
It lists pretty much all of the phones on their network and which update the phone may need.
Kudos (not koodos!) to Telus for being very organized in this manner. It’s hard staying on top of which phones are getting what and when, and checking the manufacturers’ site doesn’t always give you the appropriate answer. After all, we do know that in the end it’s the carriers who hold the final step in releasing the update to your phone. And from what we’ve heard, it’s not only the final step in the process, but is in most cases the longest step in the process.
So, being able to get that kind of answer in one location from the horse’s mouth makes it very easy for us to keep track.
Now, if you excuse me, I’ll be double checking our “Androids getting ICS” spreadsheet we made to check these out. Maybe I should check out the phone list too…
Oh, remember, that database we made?
