Both of you are talking about security policy updates - OP explicitly stated SOFTWARE updates. IE, phone updating the OS and such, not just getting minor security improvements.

 

 

Unfortunately, there is no way to fix this issue. As a truck-driver who never has WiFi, this is highly irritating to me... I have unlimited for a reason.

 

I would understand making the feature a manual download, to protect people who don't know what they are doing from overrunning there data cap... but what about us advanced users who WANT to do this?

Yes it IS highly irritating...

 

And it is the same on the Galaxy S10.

This solution is obviously for "security policy updates" and not "software updates". I hate rummaging through "solutions" from the public to find somebody that knows what they're talking about

That is only for policy updates, not for software updates.

This is not the solution, this is for security policy updates not phone software updates.
