I just flashed the USRDATA with Prince Odin. Before I flashed I went into recovery and did a factory reset and cleared partition. Then flashed the ATT USRDATA. I dont see much of a difference and if anything new was added. Also Visual voicemail still does not work.

VVM only works by flashing complete carrier Firmware usually on any carrier unless you are rooted...I thought you were trying to get the other functions going...if everything else works...try Google voice...you would have to find out what callforwarding # is for ATT...for example Sprint is *73yourgooglevoicenumber...

still on XAA firmware and debloated, Flashed the t mobile HOME CSC and CP. i have all functions working for t mobile like out of a box t mobile note 8 except not t mobile bloat carrier apps. only thing is,it did add the stupid t mobile splash screens. i figured the splash screens were part of the firmware but i guess not. tried flashing back to XAA HOME CSC and XAA CP for fun but it stays on t mobile. I'm sure if did a factory reset and just flashed the regular XAA CSC and not HOME it would go back to full XAA though but that's for another day

U1 is is just the XAA firmware with carrier settings and a few carrier specific apps, like Sprint's WifiCalling "WFC" app , baked in. The carrier Firmware has all carrier files and settings...the XAA has system info that multi-CSC selects based on your SIM and code on install, apps may need to be updated though....as there is no USERDATA file...hope this helps

You will get OTA notification...if an update comes before and you have not received notification yet, you can download update, if shared, and place on your SD and update in recovery without wiping device...
