T-Mobile now pushing Marshmallow update for BlackBerry Priv

T-Mobile is now pushing the Marshmallow update out for BlackBerry Priv owners. The update has been available for unlocked Priv's for some time, but it is great to see T-Mobile sending it out to its customers. With Marshmallow, you'll have the enhanced permission controls, Doze, adaptable storage and much more.

From T-Mobile's support page (opens in new tab):

  • Android Marshmallow software
  • Performance and stability enhancements

If you have yet to receive the update notification, you can check for it manually now. To do so, head into your Settings, About device and finally check for the update.

Jared started off writing about mobile phones back when BlackBerry ruled the market, and Windows Mobile was kinda cool. Now, with a family, mortgage and other responsibilities he has no choice but to look for the best deals, and he's here to share them with you.

  • Well that makes Marshmallow on all promised T-Mobile phones EXCEPT the Note 4 and Note Edge. Pisses me off more that Sprint and Verizon had no problem getting Marshmallow on their note 4s OK /rant. Seriously though congrats Priv users. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Would you rather be a Sprint or Verizon customer or stick with T-Mobile and wait a little longer for an update? As the group Blacksheep once intoned: You can get with this or your can get with that, I think you'll go with this, cause this is kinda phat.
  • engine engine number nine!! 6p on Verizon
  • Lmao! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Don't forget they have completely abandoned the Sony Z3. We are still on 5.0.2 and they have locked the boot loader so we are stuck.
  • Considering that the unlocked Z3 will almost certainly be getting N, being stuck on 5.0.2 is just pathetic.
  • The Z3 had the N developer preview release, right?
  • A whopping 3 people have had their day made.
  • Haha Posted via Galaxy S7 or Moto X Pure

  • Still waiting for the Note 4 to be updated. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Wow that was late Posted via the Android Central App
  • Meanwhile, in another Galaxy (pun intended)...the Note 4 Regime awaits.
  • As always AT&T pulling up the rear. But they are always first to take customers money.
  • Most disappointing phone I've ever had. Luckily I made the return window. I apologize to Samsung for my lapse in judgement. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Lol
  • Apologize to Samsung????? Gross - Ole Sammy has been nothing but issues and delayed EVERYTHING
  • I love this phone. It's as good as my Nexus 6 Posted via the Android Central App

  • Definitely better late than never...on all devices Posted via the Android Central App
  • Screw the note 4 Posted via the Android Central App

  • Long live the note 4......and long wait for its updates Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hurt again.... Something must be really wrong with the N4 update to have received it yet..... Posted via the Android Central App
  • HI, do you know if Tmobile will push update to an unlocked ATT Blackberry Priv if i place a tmobile sim into the priv??
    Thanks
  • Nope, if you have a carrier branded phone, you will need to wait for that carrier to push to update, so at this point you're waiting for AT&T.
  • I feel sorry for ATT priv users. They won't even push Marshmallow to any of their phones that didn't come with it already installed (S7). Posted via the Android Central App
  • This is why I finally moved to Nexus and will never go back to carrier branded phones or other OEMs. My Quad Core Nexus 6 with 805 is actually smoother than my previous G4 with Hexacore 808. Amazing how skins can slow a phone down. Posted via the Android Central App
