I thought that I read that even if you have a carrier unlocked ATT Branded Model phone
, you will not get any OTA updates unless you put an active ATT SIM back into the phone.
I have a Samsung Unlocked Note 10+ and flashed the ATT firmware (ATT UserData file with probably the rest of the files being from T-Mo) from the time I've owned the phone since the launch month. I have never received even one OTA. When I log into my ATT online account, several places indicate unknown phone type
. One dropdown menu does show that it's a Note 10+. ATT classifies me as a "Bring Your Own Phone" customer and a rep told me I'll never get an OTA!
Now, I bought my Husband a new Samsung Unlocked (XAA) model S10e last month. I immediately flashed the ATT UserData file and the July Security firmware. I used his old ATT SIM (SIM has been in the ATT system for 4 years). I went to Software update and received all
ATT OTAs up to the December Security patch with Android 10. I just checked to update the software for the January Security patch but it says I'm up to date.
I'm not sure if I re-flash the ATT UserData file and firmware starting with Bootloader 2 (can't remember which month the security patch was for) if I would ever get the OTAs or not. Don't feel like risking a factory restore right now since it takes me forever to re-setup my phone (even with SmartSwitch).
