    Verizon did at one point then stopped, don't know the reason.
    I participated in a beta on Verizon with my S7 Edge. It was during that time that they stopped participating. So, it's been a while.

    Well that stinks. I mean the good news is I looked up the Android 10 release date for the S10 on Verizon and it was out on December 16th last year so it seems like they have gotten the update process a little quicker than previous releases where you were waiting until March/April at times. So hopefully it will be the same for the S20+ this year.

    That's good to hear. We just switched back from T-Mobile because we were having lots of issues with messaging and group messaging specifically with T-Mobile.

    They stopped on the S7 Edge 4(?) years ago, but kept going with other models since?

    With the promo deals they had going for the S20+ right now and the fact that my wife gets their Nurses discount makes it cost about the same as what we were paying with T-Mobile.

    We were both using different apps on our phones and it was happening to both of us. There were times where we just wouldn't get messages from the group message and then all of a sudden we would get 15-30 at a time and in the completely wrong order. Sometimes delayed by over a day.

    Yes I agree don't want to take the thread off topic. Thanks for asking about it though. Sorry if I derailed the thread too much. Feel free to delete the posts if they are taking away from the thread.

    Definitely stopped on that model at least. In fact, and this part I'm not as sure of, I think they even stopped letting the beta versions get subsequent beta updates *during* the S7 Edge program. Pretty sure I'm remembering that right, but not certain. So, I may have been on beta 1 or 2, and we Verizon customers didn't get beta 3. Then got updated through the regular public rollout. Something like that.

    I actually think I remember that as well. I had an S7 edge on Verizon and I think I remember running the beta and only getting 1 or 2 updates while every other carrier got more.

    I don't recall there ever being any sort of concrete reason given ether. Just that it was Verizon's decision, not Samsung's.

    Does anyone know how to go back to android 2.5 this beta has so many bugs and it keeps giving me issues. All phone calls are going straight to voicemail messages are not coming in. I withdrew from the program using the Samsung members app. It also says to use My pc and use samsung switch but after downloading samsung switch and connecting my phone I'm lost and don't understand how to go back to the previous ui.

    In the beginning page of smart switch , where it shows the phone then the model number right beneath should be a menu to say go back to stable build
