Who pushes firmware updates on unlocked phones?

I have an unlocked S9+ and my carrier (Boost) tells me unlocked phones get their firmware updates and security patches pushed from the manufacturer, in this case Samsung. Can anyone confirm (or deny) this for me?

I would say that's true because I have a unlocked S9+ also with no sim installed using it only on Wi-Fi and I get regular software updates on it.

thats correct, and unlocked versions are the last on the list to get update. don't hold your breath the 2.5 update is literally the same exact thing

Well, that bites! Since when is an unlocked phone a second class citizen? We pay the same for our service as others so that makes no sense. Frustrating to the nth degree!!!!
