Question [Q] How to stop automatic AT&T OTA update using DATA?

I got a around 46MB OTA update today, it automatic started without any notification, and then it used 46MB from my data plan.

How can I stop automatic AT&T update (I have stopped automatic update in the google play for APPs)? I wish I can do it using WIFI when I am home.

Thanks very much!

This AT&T update should not be taken against your data plan.

Swiping from dark side of Galaxy S5.

I think it used my LTE data coz there isn't wifi connection in my office, I also checked in the "usage manager", it shows there is a 46MB usage in the data page.

Is there a way to stop this?

Check by USSD code. From keypad dial *3282# and then you will receive text message with how much data was use. In data usage manager data is inaccurate because is measure by device and not always what you really use.

It's going to show on your phone but it's not going to count against your data plan when you're billed.
