Just realized that I am still on the November Security Patch and was wondering if I didn't get it or that it hadn't rolled out to us AT&T users yet?

This is the only down side to a carrier branded device. They are slow on these (of course not all the time but usually more often then not) :(.

The carrier free US version is actually on the December security update. Samsung says they will update this device quarterly and yet, it is more up to date for now then the carrier versions. I got the update on Monday for my US unlocked version.

Definitely not bad. I wish there was a way for security updates to come from Google on all devices (like Nexus/Pixel phones). That way everyone would get it within the first or 2nd week of the month.

The US unlocked S7s have received far fewer updates than the At&t devices have. However, I'm sure the unlocked devices will receive major updated quicker and be supported for a longer amount of time.

Which is why I'm on my pixel, it's ridiculous that you can't even get timely security updates
Agreed. You'd think that security updates would be a bit more timely. Makes me suspect that the security updates are already out of date by the time we receive them.
