    Welcome to Android Central! Is it an AT&T-branded phone? You could try flashing the correct firmware for the exact phone model using Odin, but I've heard that AT&T makes it hard to do this on their phones: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...interface.html

    You could also try Smart Switch: http://www.sammobile.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29914

    Mods, please let me know if this is O.K. or not? "XDA Developers" is also a good resource for this - they have a separate section for this phone too. I am sure you can find something there! Just Google them...

    What update are you trying to get? The Active has pretty much only had Security updates released so far.

    That's cool -- I often refer people to XDA-developers.com for rooting/ROM questions as well.

    i found that i can not get fota update without at&t . it's actually some separate situations that users can get fota update without at&t .if you bought s7a from at&t directly. and unlock the device.it can get fota i guess.

    Some Samsung stores have it. Here in the US it is the only way I can get it.
