    I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 from ATT.

    I had it turned off for about a year but am now using it again.

    I turned it back on and as expected there were software updates. My phone downloaded a bunch, one after the other, and my 4.4.2 changed to a 4.4.4.

    However, it now says that this is the latest version when I know that it's not. Samsung and ATT told me that Lollipop 5.0 is.

    Is there a legitimate way to force my phone to recognize that it still needs updates?

    Is there something that triggers it?

    I was going to use the KIES software but Samsung informed me that this is only an OTA update.

    Any help would be appreciated as I really don't want to go to Best buy.

    But I also don't want to download and flash the image myself. I just want the legitimate, standard OTA method to work!

    Let me know. Thank you very much!

    Welcome to the forums!

    Since you just updated it, that could be the reason. When I was on AT&T, I would always go to the date and time settings, set the time manually for about 3 days ahead and then recheck.
