Good news for folks who bought an unlocked AT&T branded BlackBerry Priv: updates for your phone will now be handled by BlackBerry directly and bypass any AT&T slow lane silliness.
As CrackBerry reports, this new policy starts today (October 17, 2016) and will be in place for an imminent update headed to unlocked Priv phones.
It's important to note that this only applies to AT&T-branded phones that were purchased unlocked and not for AT&T locked devices that have been SIM unlocked after purchase. There has been no word if phones with branding from other carriers will see the same treatment.
BlackBerry has been working on this solution for a good part of 2016, and it's nice to see it finally arrive.
