I was told in September when I purchased my HTC S that it would be the very first phone offered by T-Mobile to recieve the JellyBean (4.1) update. Seems that was a lie as there have been a few others phones to receive the JellyBean update and even 1 that has 4.2 update. I've contacted HTC about a possible release date and they confirmed that ALL information need for this update was sent to T-Mobile the first week of October. They also stated that there might be a 2-4 week delay while T-Mobile adds all of their "bloatware" to the build. A quick Google search shows that the rest of the world is already enjoying the update wile we have to set back and wait for T-Mobile to butcher 4.1 and add all of the extra junk in that NOBODY wants or needs.

T-Mobile does not have a Jellybean build from HTC at this time. I also cannot find confirmation that any carrier offers such an update for a One S device.
Twenty seconds on Google gave me this:
I'm guessing you spent NO time at all actually checking into this.
I was just replying to what I had quoted from your post. I saw those links, or ones like them. To quote one of the links you provided:
No specific date has been said yethttp://www.slashgear.com/htc-one-x-one-s-getting-jelly-bean-this-month-02250054/
No specific date has been said yet
What comes up in Google are bloggers who expect Jelly bean. They don't say any software was delivered to T-Mobile and delayed, nor do they say it's available on a One S device elsewhere in the rest of the world. As a side note, the One X, X+, and XV are different devices.
People need to stop treating the rumor sites like they are facts.
Here's an interesting note if you look at their source list they often link to other sites and you can often find the main source of the rumor. Sometimes you will find out companies didn't give a date other than they planned to start that month, or give more info starting that month.
http://www.htc.com/www/help/android41faq/^--this HTC link USED to work, but they either took it down or are updating it. It essentially said that any phone with less than 512 MB RAM (IIRC) would not get JB. They confirmed that the HTC One S and X are indeed getting JB.
The phone will definitely be getting JB, it's just a matter of when T-mobile gets it, adds their bloat, and does bug testing to ensure we don't get an OTA update that messes up our phones.
By the way, there is a new update released today, but it's not JB:
And here's Google's cached version of spartanerik's link. This is HTC saying "Yes, the HTC One S will get Jelly Bean" but no timeline.q=cache:P00ZAbjGMcwJ:www.htc.com/www/help/android41faq/+http://www.htc.com/www/help/android41faq/&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us
How about now?
Its really frustrating to see that Galaxy s2(about 22 months old device) get jellybean today and our htc one s(about 11.5 months old device) not get jelly bean.
just cause htc one s didnt sell as much as galaxy s2, doesnt mean t-mobile shouldnt work as hard to deliver jellybean on one s
One S is latest HTC Android device available on t-mobile . its really terrible that even the latest android device doesnt get updated once in a while.
I completely agree. Almost every other day I read about the increased penetration of Jelly bean, be it version 4.1 or 4.2, and I'm like *sigh*. All I know is that the international one S has had the update for a few months now, and is even slated to get 4.2 and sense 5, which I actually would like to have. This all while we are still on 4.0.4. Just plain annoying. You know what would aleviate some of this frustration? Some communication on what's keeping this update! High level stuff would be enough, at least so we know that this is still happening. This whole "let's keep quiet and sweep this under the rug" style of communication is, to quote the CEO of T-mobile, "bu||$h!t".
Frankly, I don't care how long it takes anymore. I just want to know they haven't abandoned this update and that we will get it sometime down the road. It's been a very long time, and I am very unsure.
I think your wrong tmo_mikem I have also googled it and have seen that it is being deployed over seas and to other carriers in the United States and I have read the full articles on all of them. Also it is being beta tested here in the United States for TMobile for the past couple of months. Being you work for TMobile maybe you should do your homework before you answer any questions. People were asked if they wanted to Beta test JellyBean 4.1. I think it's a shame when customers get told when they are going to receive updates and then don't all due to the company wanting to add their own BLOATWARE to the Software package that nobody wants. I think what the company should do is email a survey to there customers asking them if they want any of what we customers call BLOATWARE and I guarantee you will not get as many complaints if any complaints at all. TMobile stated awhile back that it was going to listen to it's customers then here is something to listen to us about. When there is an update for any of the phones that you carry then deploy the update right away. For example I have an IPHONE through my company and as soon as there is an update it gets it no waiting no bull and no BLOATWARE. So a piece of advice once you get the update stop screwing with it and tested it for a month and then deploy it to who ever is suppose to get it.
This is getting really annoying. I went through the G2X fiasco and swore no more LG because of it, now I am stuck with the One S not getting its promissed update. I am starting to wonder if is the manufacturer or T-Mobile that is the hold up with these updates.
I really like the new HTC One but think I might have to go Samsung as much as I dont want to to avoid getting left in the dark.
It is TMobile not HTC. I have got intouch with HTC and so have other people. Right now it is being Beta tested so as soon as they are done testing it should be deployed. The problem is that TMobile has to add it's Bloatware when ever their is a update like this. If they would just test the update and then deploy it they would have a lot more happier customers then what they do right now. So I would give it time and you will get it. I think the more people complain to TMobile about this that maybe they will finally deploy it to everyone. It has been in testing for at least 3 to 4 months now I think that is long enough being that people over seas have already have JellyBean 4.1 or 4.2.
