    Default "Failed to update software. Use SKT USIM card to update."

    Can't update my phone because I keep getting this message, "Failed to update software. Use SKT USIM card to update."
    How do I get around this or where can I get this card? I bought a Samsung Galaxy S4 Advanced (SHV-E330S) on Ebay from Korea.

    Just had the same problem, turned the phone off, took out the sim card, then turned it back on without a sim card in and suddenly it was able to get the update over wifi

    hope the same works for you

    I think S4 Korean version SHV-E330S/K/L are locked to Korean carrier sim card.
    But you can still update OTA via Kies on your PC
    It works for me everytime
