Re: How I Got My US Unlocked Galaxy S9 to Update

I have a similar situation. I have a AT&T branded S9 but I am using the phone in Canada with a Canadian sim card and network (Bell) I bought the phone used and did BYOD to save money and keep my existing plan. I am also not getting security patch updates when I search using software update on the phone or smart switch on my computer. Both cases indicate software is up to date. My last update was from June 2019

Re: How I Got My US Unlocked Galaxy S9 to Update

I hope someone can assist you.  The method I describe in this thread works good for my US Factory Unlocked Galaxy S9, Model: SM G960U1.  Probably won't work for a branded ATT model.  Who knows...  try a different (not active) sim and see if it will update.  Good luck.

Re: How I Got My US Unlocked Galaxy S9 to Update

Again, continuing from my original post...

I still have not figured out why my US Factory Unlocked Galaxy S9, Model: SM G960U1 will not update when it has my T-Mobile sim card installed and I probably will not continue to pursue finding the root cause.

Reason... changing the sim really does not take that long to do and it will allow my phone to update.  I hope your's will too.

 

Today I checked the link that I previously posted (and re-posted below) and saw that Samsung released a new software a few days ago on 2019-09-18.  So I again changed the sim to a very old (not active) ATT sim card... and boom... my phone is now updated (using Smart Switch) to Baseband: G960U1UES6CSH8, Security Patch: September 1, 2019.

 

This is the link to the Samsung document that lists the latest software issued for the US Unlocked Galaxy S9 (Model: SM-G960U1)

https://doc.samsungmobile.com/SM-G960U1/VZW/doc.html

 

After I put my active T-Mobile sim card back, Smart Switch reports this:  Your Device software is up to date:  SH8(TMB)
