    Just exchanged the unlocked for the carrier model. Stuck on April security update. How do I get it to recognize the August update?

    I had to turn off automatic time and manually set it a month ahead. Then it gave me the update

    you'll have to get the previous months updates before you get to August I think. I took me a few days off rolling forward in time to get them all updated

    I'm surprised you didn't get the updates on the unlocked. I'm using the unlocked on AT&T and got both the July and August updates.

    I have a no contract ATT cell service, and bought an ATT S8+, rather than an unlocked one, for essentially the same reasons.

    AH. Good points. Luckily I have good service everywhere I am. I use a private voicemail service.
