I don't know if this belong here .....
Dear Sammy, in the age of UNLIMITED CELLULAR DATA, There is no reason to limit updates to WiFi connection only...

I didn't know this was a thing until I joined the beta testing team...

I will be paying more attention to stuff..

Thank you Sammy for all you do to keep all these variants up to date.

I had this issue. I agree. When I had my iPhone I had to be connected to wifi to update it. Then with this again I had to be connected to wifi. Like we should be able to choose

Maybe give you a warning that it will eat into your cell data allotment...
This is just ridiculous

That would be nice. Especially cause some people don't always bake access to wifi or choose not to have it to save money

Hello @PoliticsMan ,

Software download over mobile data is a decision that is made in consultation with carriers that device is being used on. Some carriers are ok with downloading an update over data while others may not.  Functionality itself is available on the device, it is a choice of carrier if they would like us to enable it.

Thank you for the clarification.

Question.
Does this apply to UNLOCKED DEVICES purchased directly from Samsung ?

Yes. I have an unlocked device. I recall that I had a choice about 18 months ago. Then I stopped having a choice.
