RMinnich, being able to have the latest software updates is important, and I can certainly understand your concerns in regard to Android Pie availability. I will be glad to clarify. As confirmed on our Pie 9.0 for Android page, Pie 9.0 availability and release dates are determined by the manufacturer: https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/android-pie-os/ I recommend bookmarking this page to stay updated as additional information becomes available: https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/samsung-galaxy-note9-update/#/ Please keep in mind that Verizon Wireless does not oversee or code the Android operating system, and thus we are unable to provide a release date. If you run into any issues or need additional assistance please let us know.
