LG G5 Update Unlocked Outside the US

The update for Nougat came out for the h820 recently and I want to update to it. I bought an H820 when I still lived in the US. Unfortunately I had to move back to The Netherlands. I want to update my phone but am not sure if I can. The phone is unlocked but I still have my AT&T sim card, but the number/line is not active anymore. I have tried using LG Bridge but that gives me an error when it tries to check the current firmware. Please help.

 

Sincerely,

 

A concerned user

You wont get updates unless you in the united states connect to the att network with a working sim card.  ATT does not make there updates available with tools like LG bridge.
