Factory Unlocked ZMax 2 Updates?

I have a factory unlocked ZMax 2 Z955A.  The latest revision is B04.

Despite repeated attempts I have received no updates.

I have gone so far as to stick an active AT&T Go Phone SIM in my fully charged, plugged in phone.

Online ZTE chat support could not confirm whether this phone will receive updates.  I see where others with the AT&T model have received a few updates which I assume include security patches.

Can anyone give me a definitive answer on updates?  I'm a bit uneasy using a phone without even the slightest of security support.

  • Nothing?  This isn't the official ZTE website staffed by ZTE employees?

    B Beck I'll have to loop in and see if they can get a definite answer for you. I personally only have a AT&T version  which I unlocked for use with T-MOBILE. The device hasn't received a security update in some time.

    I don't have the device on me at this time to check and won't be able for a fee days as the Mod Squad and myself are traveling for our community meet up.

  • Ok thanks.  This is not an official direct ZTE channel then?

    It is an official channel ran by ZTE USA.  Please allow our team some time to look into this for you.

  • Is there some communication problem with China?  I wouldn't expect this to be a hard question to answer.

    Thank you for your patience while we worked through the correct channels of communication to confirm for you. We were confirming with the carrier, as well as, our team; and we wanted to provide a definitive answer (like you requested) for you. Currently, there is no roll-out plan for the ZMAX 2 to be updated; but that does not rule out potential MRs in the future.

  • Thanks for confirming what I expected, namely don't plan on updates.  Buyer beware.
