    As it tells you, ATJ4 includes feature updates as well as security updates. But the listed feature updates are the same as for the ATI5 and ATJ3 firmware versions previously released OTA by other carriers.

    If I remember correctly the 2nd October or November brought battery improvement.

    How do I know which one to pick for Verizon, not unlocked? And my phone is a N986U and not U1, so does that matter? I am new to the Samsung ecosystem so I'm still learning the ins and outs, but I want the latest OS. Currently I have one that's N986USQU1BTJ3.

    Yes, you have to look up the firmware for your specific model and carrier.

    Hmmm I narrowed it down and the only one is from August, but I have updates from October. But if I change the model from -U to -U1, I see some files with the exact same file numbers I have, but none are tied to Verizon. I just got the phone mid-October so it's definitely not unlocked. I feel like I'm missing something obvious here. Sorry if I sound dumb.

    Not at all dumb, but there are confusingly two different senses of "unlocked". If your phone is N986U and not N986U1, then you do not have the unlocked model, regardless of when you got it. The only firmware your phone receives over the air is the firmware for N986U.

    Which firmware are you referring to as the November update? The latest N986U1 firmware for any carrier is ATJ4, which still has the Oct 1 Android security patch level.

    Ahhh okay.

    But it is confusing that under the U, my update version number can't be found there, but it's under the U1s?

    The kicker Gary, is AT&T and Verizon are both at "1BT" levels with the "U" handsets. I'm locked with AT&T and still running "September" Security Patch BUT, it's "1BTIF" and Verizon's September is "1BTJ3" as 'Moo Cow' stated. Doesn't make me feel any better about not getting my October OR November patches, but we are at a higher level??? Do we already have the camera fixes and the battery improvements??? AT&T never really told me during my September patch, but I don't think they were out yet! So why the "1BTJ3"??? Just to confuse the enemy!!!

    No, the firmware-version naming sequences are different for different phone models. So BTJ3 for the N986U is not necessarily ahead of ATJ3 or ATJ4 for the N986U1. (Also, the "level" terminology applies only to Google's Android security patches, not to the rest of the firmware update.) Your carrier's website has the release notes describing what's in the firmware updates for your carrier-branded phone.

    But we did go from "1ATH3" in August 25th Security Patch to the "BTIF" for September so it was a big letter jump! Also, AT&T is notorious for being really vague with their descriptions: Both months say "Various fixes and improvements, Network performance improvements" - doesn't help much!
    I do understand what you're saying though!
