Wonder how this will work with AT&T provided updates?

Because AT&T controls the update path to their branded phones, when an update is available, they tell you next to nothing about what it includes. If it's a big update, like a version jump, or in the case of Samsungs, a OneUI bump, it might say something like "includes new features and enhancements". Otherwise it just says "includes enhanced security features" when it's just a security patch.

That's it. Nothing like what everyone else gets which usually at least lists what's new, what's fixed, and the major security patches.

Verizon just forces the downgrades on you. You can postpone them for a time, but eventually you're likely to wake up one day to find the phone auto-downgraded itself overnight.

And yes, I meant what I said and did not have any typos.

AT&T does that too. You can tap "Remind me later" only so many times before it just does it.

I have no experience with what T-Mobile does.
