Flashed both betas through ABD and both wiped the device, if it doesn't register me into samsung members to receive coming OTAs I might revert to Android 11, can't be wiping every update :(

I've found Beta 2 to be very solid, I haven't experienced any issues so far and may stay on this one until the OTA drops (Who am I kidding, I'll flash any new beta that comes if it stays BL2)

So if I flash manually the beta 1 (through adb since i don't have an SD card), i might be able to get enrolled into the beta program officially and start getting the otas? o_O
Looks like you already got your answer. The answer is YES the only condition being Beta registration should be open. The dependency on banner would be gone and whenever beta registration opens up you will be able to sign up for Beta and get OTAs, this has been my experience so far.

Thanks both for your replies.

Just a heads up at this point with the eSIM on beta 2. Do not turn off any of your sims if running dual sim, you will not be able to reenable them without a reset. Just get the neverending loading circle. Other than that, seems to work wonderfully.
I had converted my physical sim to esim yesterday and had switched off the physical sim (Sim 1) which still had my old sim I was able to turn it back on again. I tried turning it off and on multiple times and it worked.
I have not tried doing that to my esim as I don't want to risk it but someone with a wiped phone should try and met us know.

Anyone on Beta 2 and AT&T, do you still have advanced Messaging? My status is stuck on "Connecting" even after clearing the app Data and cache
