OS Updates for BYOD

Just curious if I bring my own Galaxy S4 device, would OS updates come from AT&T for the device or would I need to get them from Samsung or some place like XDA?  The phone I am purchasing is an "AT&T Version" either from a friend or other source.

 

Any help is appreciated.

If you buy a branded phone (AT&T in your case) it won't matter where you bought it from, the updates will be coming from AT&T. Or as likely the updates won't be coming at all.

Re: OS Updates for BYOD

Thanks for the quick reply.  I will see if there is truth in advertising and if the phone I get is really A&TT version.

 

I have rooted and upgraded phones before to fix broken features when updates were slow so I can do that but I would rather not have the hassle.  But as you say if an update I am looking for is too slow, I can find another way.

 

Since I am not buying cutting edge products I am hoping updates I require are available.

 

Thanks.
