I may be carrier specific. I have Tmobile and it will use mobile data and I have no way to make it wifi only.

I've had unlocked devices since the inception of the Galaxy Note and have never had the option to use anything but WiFi. I'd love to use data instead of WiFi to update my smartphones.

There are times when I receive an update alert while I'm away from my WiFi connection. It's aggravating because I won't use a connection I don't trust.

As to being carrier specific, I've used them all and over the years and have always been forced to update via WiFi. 😒

I have Us cellular, Galaxy S 20 FE, and I am having the same problem. It won't let me use my mobile data, which I have, and will only let me update with wifi, which I don't have. Idk what to do or how to make it update with data.
