T-Mobile's LG G2 Should Receive A Lollipop Treat Starting Today

Following in the footsteps of Verizon's model, the LG G2 for T-Mobile should start getting the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop today. This is according to the latest update information posted by the carrier itself, so it's pretty much as official as it can be.

Unless some last minute errors crop up, the rollout is imminent (if it hasn't started already). However, you're supposed to be patient, since T-Mobile estimates that the recent software will have reached all G2 units it srecent by May 22. Over-the-air rollouts are usually staged, and this timeline gives you an concept of just how long you'll have to wait for the update in the worst case scenario.

If you don't like such waits, then you can do one of two things: either manually check for the update on your phone (by going to Settings > General > About phone > Update center > System updates), or utilize a computer and LG's Mobile Support Tool to acquire and install it (full details are available at the Source link).

Included in the recent release is just the bump in Android version to 5.0, along with LG's interpretation of its UI overlay on top of that. It looks like there are no recent apps built in.

To acquire the recent software, you need to have 50% or more battery life left, and at least 617Mega Bytes (MB) of free space (since that's how gigantic the download is). After applying the update, you'll be running software version D80130b.
