I was wondering if anyone can offer tips on how to update my carrier unlocked Samsung A13 5g. It's currently operating on the Android 11 software, instead of the Android 12/13 it's supposed to receive. I've tried using Smart Switch to force update it, but it says that there's no available update. PLEASE HELP MEEE!!!

That is your issue. Go to AT&T store ask for a working SIM card and put it in your phone. Check for updates and I'm sure your phone will find multiple of them and you will just have to stay in the store and keep updating until there will be no more updates. Then you can just give the SIM card back to the store employee. You can also asks someone you know with AT&T service.

Which carrier was your device with before it was unlocked? Which carrier are you using now?

Install Samsung Smart Switch to your phone and Windows PC. Connect your phone to your PC and the app will find and install Android updates.  I do not know why this happens - when phones fail to receive OTA updates
