    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

    encontre la solucion, simplemente apaga el cell, sacale el CHIP o SIM y luego enciendelo e intenta actualizar de nuevo el software y listo.

    espero y les funcione a mi me funciono.


    NOTA: son 3 actualizaciones grandes y 3 pequeñas, las grandes son para subir de versión hasta q llegue a 5.1, y las pequeñas son complementos adicionales. la primera pesa al rededor de 860mb, la segunda añ rededor de 611mb y la tercera q es la ultima pesa al rededor de 1300mb... y las pequeñas 45mb
