I purchased an unlocked HTC One M8 that had previously been a T-Mobile phone.  I am currently using it on the Cricket network.  Cricket is supposed to update Android Lollypop 5.01 to Marshmallow 6.0x in the next few weeks. 

 

Will my phone automatically get this update along with phones purchased from Cricket, or will I need to do some sort of manual update should I wish to do so?

 

I chatted with a Cricket employee in their web-chat, but, my question was a bit beyond their first tier support.

 

Thanks!

Upgrading a handset OS starts with the OEM, in your case HTC. They then release the version to the carriers who then certify it and roll it out.

As it stands HTC is currently still in development for the HTC M8. No timeline is given.

So no it's not a blanket release to all handsets all models at the same time of the new OS version.
