Hello Mar May!

Bell MTS has not carried the Samsung Galaxy S4 for sometime. To the best of my knowledge, the last update that was made available for this unit was Android 5, commonly referred to as "Lollipop."

I don't foresee any further updates being made available from the manufacturer, due the hardware limitations of the device.

I hope this answers your question.

Have a great day! :)

I upgraded to an S7 from an S4 in Feb /18 and the only updates that would come through on the S4 are for some apps.  As Justin said the o/s for this phone is an old one and there is no more support for it from Samsung.

The lack of  o/s updates was one of the reasons that I upgraded even though I liked my S4.

Most phones are supported with updates for about 24-36 months. The Galaxy S4 is about five years old now and well beyond that point.

S4 is obsolete now if you want to save some money I would look for a cheap used S6 then purchase a micro sim from bellmts for 10 bux and start using that if you don't want to sign a new contract to get a new phone. All cell phones now are unlocked from a carrier or will be unlocked free of charge.
