How to Update a Pantech Cell Phone

by Maya Walker

Cell-phone updates contain patches and fixes for applications and other installed software. The updates can be used to repair problems with audio quality or Internet connection and software freezes. Updates for a Pantech cell phone can be performed over the air. An over-the-air update eliminates the need for you to take your phone to your mobile provider's repair center. Depending on the model of your Pantech phone, the steps may vary slightly.

Step 1

Press the "Menu" key on your Pantech cell phone.

Step 2

Click "Settings" and highlight "Software." Press the "OK" key.

Step 3

Click "Software Update" and press "Check for Update." The phone will search for updates. If updates are available, click "Yes" to confirm you want to update your phone.

Click "Update Now" and the phone will restart after the installation is complete.


  • You can postpone the update by clicking "Postpone" after checking for updates. Access the updates menu again to continue the updates.
