when att releases it..  ATT does not release update schedules.  But if its like before the s7 active will get its update about 3 to 4 weeks after the s7 and s7 edge.  But that is speculation.  They only release updates in batches.

Thank you.  I guess I am just confused as to why it was not included with the S7 and S7 edge update when they are the same internally.

same hardware but different software since it has the extra button on the side for the active features....  Active devices have always gotten there updates later.

Thanks  I will continue to wait patiently.  Kind of hesistant on downloading the software off of one of those sites and installing it manually.

It's so difficult to sit here and wait for nougat to be received on the Galaxy S7 active.  If I had the Galaxy S6, S6 active,  or something older then I could understand and respect the structure or senority and how AT&T rolls out their software updates.

This is insane.  The same model (S7& S7 edge) goes and gets the update and we are left waiting.  The software for all S7's should have been developed and released at the same time despite the active having one extra button.

Not a happy camper.

it can take up to a month for all devices to get the updates.  Its a slow rollout always has been with ATT.

clear your cache and see if that works if that doesnt then factory reset the device.
