After investigating the issue, he found out that his device was blacklisted by Telkom. According to the report issued by Telkom, a certain business man acquired 500 iPhone and 500 Samsung smartphones in 2012 for use by his staff. This same person stopped paying for the contracts in 2015 after a period of 3 years.
Telkom blacklisted these devices but this businessman has already sold a batch before it. Some of these blacklisted units were received by Kalahari and sold them to their customers. Boshoff complained to Takealot regarding this issue and his device was collected with his bank account further credited with the purchase price of the device.
In the meantime, it was earlier reported that Samsung Galaxy S5 devices were receiving the Android 5.1.1 update in the US but later it was confirmed that only the devices under T-Mobile have started getting this update so far.
In the meantime, it’s still not sure whether this update will start rolling out to other US carriers like Sprint, US Cellular, AT%T and Verizon Wireless. In the tech industry, Samsung is known as the No. 1 Android original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Reports indicate that it is one of those few companies that would like to see all of its devices updated to the latest Android Lollipop version.
Stay tuned for more updates on Samsung Galaxy S5!
