force a software update?

I purchased an unlocked Galaxy S20. Been using it a few days now on Total Wireless, a Verizon mnvo. My issue is, the phone is still on One UI 2.1 software. When I go into software update, it says my phones software is currently up to date, which it obviously isn't. Is there a way to force a software update to this phone? I would really like to get on 2.5.

5G update for Unlocked phones

This is a direct quote from Verizon Wireless about accessing 5G on the unlocked phones with 5G capabilities. 

"All certified 5G unlocked Android phones will require a software update from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (Samsung) to become 5G Nationwide capable on Verizon." ^SST
So @samsung. When are you pushing out the update? Sooner the better.

Re: 5G update for Unlocked phones

I called Verizon and they said Samsung would.. then I talk to samsung and they say it's up to Verizon. hmmm.. you'd think that a $1400 phone would have a plan in place and someone could inform you what is happening with it's 5g. I asked OnePlus and they also turned it to Verizon as the responsible party. very frustrating when you have this money invested and can't get a direct answer.

Re: 5G update for Unlocked phones

If the Verizon Firmware of .G986USQU1BTJ1 includes nationwide 5G then wouldn't the 11/02 update from Samsung to .G986U1QU1BTJ2 include it also? Or it doesn't work that way. between vender and Samsung updates and firmware naming

I don't know. I switched to T-Mobile from Verizon a week ago and I'm on 5g no problem now.

Re: 5G update for Unlocked phones

Still waiting myself - I can access the mmwave sites no problems, but no update from Samsung yet. Thinking I might join the UI3 beta to get the 5G update early

Phone is NOT performing at all ever since it's update

When my phone did an update about a month ago, it had 5G, on the screen. I drops calls, my Internet is horrible, I have followed all of the normal recommendations, resets, etc and it seems to be getting worse! Verizon is of not assistance, and a hotspot???? What's that?? It totally stopped working!!?? What is going on? My Galaxy 10 works better now than my new 20+ 5g, I'm ready to throw it out the window! Verizon won't help either, they don't have any other suggestions that I haven't already research on Google Smiley Sad
