    Is it possible to update my S7 to the latest version of Nougat despite my carrier not pushing it? I'm with Freedom Mobile.

    You could get a pay as you go sim from a carrier who is pushing it. Other than that I'm not really sure.

    Just use wifi to download with the sim then replace with your normal sim card.

    Which carrier you got? T-Mobile and AT&T have pushed the Nougat update for their S7 and S7 Edge.
    Look for software version G930AUCU4BQA6 (AT&T S7), G935AUCU4BQA6 (AT&T S7 Edge), G930TUVU4BQB1 (T-Mobile S7) and G935TUVU4BQB1 (T-Mobile S7 Edge).

    Ah okay. Thanks, guys. I just figured I could download the ROM from somewhere kinda like the good old days of BlackBerry where you could download the OS from their servers and load it onto the phone regardless of what your carrier is currently pushing.

    Do any of you happen to know where to check to see what OS is currently being pushed and if a certain carrier is planning on a future release? I'm unaware of Freedom Mobile's website giving that info but I know Rogers' site does.

    http://www.sammobile.com does (I think it's under your specific device, to get the ROM).

    Otherwise, Rogers and Videotron do (I don't know about others, I haven't checked).

    I think freedom usually gets the update when the big 3 release it

    I'm not sure if they have. Can't find a section on their website that lists devices and current OS releases. It's okay. I'll just wait. Not that there's anything wrong with Marshmallow. I'm just excited to try out Nougat.

    Thanks, everyone.

    Eh fine by me then. Let everyone else play beta tester and hopefully we end up with a less buggy release.
