yeah, STV-1 (unbranded & unlocked) always receives the update on time, that's what i like from the STV-1, however as i don't live in the US, having this phone limits the LTE coverage as a lot of LTE bands are not compatible with STV-1.

AUS LTE 700 is on the band 28 which is ONLY compatible to STV-3 & STV-4 not STV-1, so i didn't have a chance to experience the Telstra's 4GX network, what a pity..
besides, seems my STV-1's battery is a bit spoilt and to have it fixed i was told that i couldn't buy a bare battery and have it imported to my country due to the restriction in carrying Li-Ion battery pack by airfreight, so i decided to purchase a new STV-3.. and i just pass my STV-1 to my mom (fortunately she doesn't really care about the battery life..)
