This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • The duplicate should cover the generic "how", and also provides links to several community wiki questions which cover the major Android updates and their availability. However, if you have a specific issue when attempting to update your device, feel free to pose that as a question. – eldarerathis May 1 '12 at 1:06

If your phone is eligible for an operating system upgrade, you'll see a System Update message pop up in your notification bar (along the top of the screen). You will only see this, though, when Google, your phone manufacturer and/or your cellphone provider have customized the operating system for your device.

  • Thank you. I m using 2.2.1. Galaxy ace samsung. how can check for that manually – user4782 May 1 '12 at 0:39
  • If there is some evidence an update may be ready for your phone and you feel you just need to have your phone check again, one way that was rumoured to work is to open up your dialer and dial *#*#checkin#*#*. It is unclear whether this actually works, but it's worth a shot. As for which version you may be entitled to, I had a look at the Wikipedia page for your phone and the latest update released was 2.3.6. Did you hear or read somewhere that Android 4 would be made available for your phone? – ctt May 1 '12 at 0:46

  • If, even after using the checkin trick, you're still not prompted to upgrade, consider contacting your cellphone provider or manufacturer to figure out whether your entitled to the upgrade (in your country, or with your provider). If there's anything you feel suggests you should be seeing the upgrade (a friend with the same phone has an upgrade, or you saw something on the internet somewhere) consider editing your question to include such details. – ctt May 1 '12 at 1:02
