    Default Cant update software

    Hi,
    I just switched from iOs to Android and its been a huge upgrade in my opinion. There is one problem that keeps occuring though and that is the following error:"Failed to update software. Use SKT USIM card to update". I bought the s5 on eBay from Korea. Does anyone know what to do about this?

    In advance, Thank you!

    The issue seems to be because it's a Korean model and I'm guessing that you are not using it on a Korean cell carrier. A quick search revealed two possible solutions; 1) remove the sim card and attempt the update over wifi and 2) some have reported a factory data restore as correcting the issue. I also found an app in the Play store that says it corrects this issue however, it was made for the Galaxy S3 on ICS and has not been updated in a while.
    Thanked by:
