Update won't download without wifi

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I currently have unlimited 4G data and got a notification that I had an update available but I couldn't download it because I wasn't on Wi-Fi. Anyway around this? I don't not have any data limits on my phone either.

It really depends on where the update came from and the size of the update. I personally have a Note 9 with T-mobile and a couple of the T-mobile updates have required me to be on wi-fi despite me also having an unlimited data plan.

If someone else's phone has unlimited data you can go through their hotspot. This may not be ideal for you though.

No. There is NO option to download system updates using mobile data. So frustrating!

There is NO option on my Note 9 to download over mobile data there either. Doesn't exist.
