Software updates via Wi-Fi?

I'm used to getting all upgrades using my data connection. I don't have Wi-Fi. I had a software upgrade that wouldn't work via data. I spent 50 minutes in target walking around while the download came on the store's wifi. Is this typical or maybe because it was my first software upgrade,

I just got my phone a few days ago, and there were 2 huge updates that took a really long time, maybe 30 min.  I'm assuming it could've taken longer for you if you were using public wifi.

I get your comment on public vs private wifi, but my real question is why can't I use just my data connection for ALL downloads like Apple does?

@Samsung_fLkMNsk That is a carrier decision based on their network limitations.

@Samsung_fLkMNsk Yea sadly that depends on carrier, so far only tmobile branded phones can update using mobile data as far as i know.
