Still nothing yet - tried restarting phone, wiping system cache. Any suggestions, besides patiently waiting?

Just need to be patient. It will eventually arrive. As I understand they usually update carrier versions, locked and unlocked. 3 major carriers in the US that will be updated first then factory unlocked devices will follow.

That's correct. All 3 carriers must approve the update before it can be pushed to unlocked phones.

Normally that's true, however it was released to the public on the unlocked T-Mobile variant. Not sure why they didn't push it to beta testers. Screenshot_20231110_071013_CheckFirm_1000034220_1699621813.png

I believe Sammy releases in stages like Google does with the Pixel. The A14 November update for the Pixel 8 Pro was released several days ago but mine hasn't received it yet.

So now it's a race to see if my S23 Ultra gets the final before my Pixel gets the November patch. lol

2 s23 ultra unlocked variants bought and activated at the same time on the same account with T-Mobile.

Beta testing with 1 device still on beta as of this past.

Non beta test device received one UI 6 update a few hours ago.

They are screwing us beta testers around for some odd reason.
Maybe they can't update us with their release and they are trying to work out what's wrong by letting the non beta testers be beta testers forcefully

Jesus. Why is everyone going nuts about final. It'll be ready when it's ready. Many variables. Carriers, unlocked, beta testers. When it's ready, the Samsung Members app will notify you. Nothing more you can do but WAIT.

Well according to my post bud, us beta testers are forced to wait while non beta testers are getting the official software updated with November security updates.
Why should beta testers have to wait till after non beta testers retest an official release?

This is not a good look for Samsung
