I have factory unlocked S23 Ultra US version and live in US too. SIM is Verizon. Android 14 with official UI6. 
Many articles saying that I have to connect my 23 ultra to PC and power off then press volume+ and power button for show up recovery mode. But my 23 ultra can do it without connect to PC. Why my 23 ultra can do it??
I could do this with my Verizon locked Note10+, factory unlocked S22 Ultra before. Also my current tab S8+ can do it without connect to PC with USB-C. Why my devices can do it without connect to PC with USB cable? Only US version?

@Kentaro I've had many Samsung phones from the Note 8 to the S23 Ultra, Fold 5, and Tab S8+ today. None of the phones required a USB C connection to boot into recovery mode. 

Your S23 Ultra is acting normally. If you have concerns, return it to the place of purchase.

@Kentaro "Many people answered me that I have to connect my 23 ultra to PC and..."

Those "many people" are wrong. This is not required for phones. 

"Also my current tab S8+ can do it without connect to PC with USB-C. "

This is surprising. Connecting a USB C to the Tab is required to get into recovery mode.

Ok I changed it from people to articles, fine for you?
Well then my 23 ultra and tab S8+ can go reboot menu without connecting PC. I can't upload video here. Are you in US? My 23 ultra got it from Samsung US on February 11, 2023.

@Kentaro My devices are all from the US. This is the discussion are for Samsung US products and services. 

I guess consider yourself lucky that your Tab can do this without a USB C connection.

So my 23 ultra lucky too? I traded 22 Ultra for 23 so I don't have 22 Ultra here and I did recovery mode without cable with 22 Ultra too. Was that lucky too?? 🤷

@Kentaro As I said previously, no cable is required to get a phone into recovery mode. So your phone is operating as expected.

>As I said previously..
I heard it now.

And I tried find answer from Google search before post here and they're saying has to connect to computer with USB-C for 23 series phones, like a 99% says it. And I'm worried about my 23 ultra is wrong one..
Do you have any link for recovery mode without cable?

You said it first about Tab S8+ but now you're saying your S8+ didn't require a USB C connection??

@Kentaro I said none of the phones require a USB C connection. All of the tablets I have had, including the Tab S8+, require a USB C connection.
