Sorry to say but you would need to use wifi for all updates you can't change it too use cell signal

It's a AT&T thing. They offload all update traffic off their network.

Not so sure about that.

We are on an MVNO, using an AT&T card, and can update via Data.

However, we would not do that, since Wi-Fi is way more reliable for an update

Did you get your device from AT&T? If you didn't that's why you can use data.

Nope - we would NEVER buy a phone from a carrier ... only buy Unlocked devices from Samsung


BTW, the OP never stated they have a carrier locked device

As your response pointed out. You only buy unlocked and don't have that problem. He has that problem which is an obvious sign he has an AT&T branded one which AT&T forces all update traffic onto wifi.
