Enter on dialer 277634#*#

THIS WON'T WORK G4 H811 AMD A FEW OTHERS. CARRIER'S BYPASS IT.

Go to Wifi Test.

Go to OTA Setting.

Press Disable

"Delete all your wifi connections. TMO is forcing wifi on and if you've logged into your network you will be updated." (This last step is your only option at this point with some carriers forcing update over wifi even with OTA Disabled)

Then turn-off wifi. (Just added this as TMO forces update on wifi without prompt)

Maybe they have a contract with the NSA to not allow disabling it!

On the H815 under Settings -> General -> About Phone -> Update Center -> Software Update there are checkboxes for Check automatically and Auto-install updates. Unchecking them should prevent OTA.

Nice, H811 doesn't have that.

Odd, my H811 just rebooted on its own and started a software update. When I checked the software version it says H81110h. I thought this is how it came out the box.
