Should be able to. In some cases where one may want to go clean Unlocked firmware with no carrier files at all, it may be necessary to follow the switching carrier guide to change back to XAA, but other than that, yeah shouldn't be an issue...

I am able to make and receive calls, etc. So far so good.

Now:
1). I am using a MVNO called Red Pocket and am on their CDMA (Verizon) network

2). I am not able to activate the Advanced Calling features and Wi-Fi calling - but I presume that this is because I am with Red Pocket and not with Verizon - correct?

3). Each time I reboot my phone, I see a message that says "SIM card is not from Verizon Wireless". I simply swipe to clear and ignore it. From what I can tell, this is just a nuisance message and does not affect the functionality of the phone. The question is why do I see this message? I am asking because previously I was using a Verizon branded Motorola phone that had the same Red Pocket CDMA SIM card in it, and it never showed this message. Is it because the IMEI of the phone is not "registered" with Verizon since it was originally a TMobile version?

4). Does anyone know if I will get automatic firmware updates from Verizon? I am not sure since I am using a MVNO, and not with Verizon direct

Thanks

Is there a difference in firmwares for the camera? I've got an unlocked Note8 USA versino and the cameras are weak (front mainly) compared to my year old Pixel XL. Worth trying to flash the T-MO firmware to see if there's a difference? Can i go back to the unlocked USA firmware if I decide to return?

You can return to unlocked firmware later if you want...you may just try to extract the oak and sideload it...but you can also try this app

The camera app in the default Auto mode is not the best as it compensates by increasing the ISO too much in order to take the picture really fast. Try going to like manual mode, drop the ISO to 100-400 and see how those pictures turn out. I notice a huge difference between the manual mode versus the auto mode.

I was thinking of flashing the unlocked firmware on my Sprint variant note 8. What was the outcome of (oscarat50) having google account missing error. My google account is not accepted, it's blocked. In the download window the FRP says it's locked.??? Just in case that I run into the same issue.
Thanks.
