I'm not getting my updates either. The only way I get them is if I bring it into a service center and they do it for me. My phone is still under warranty, so I'm going to see if they'll replace it since it's a pain in the butt to bring it in to them every couple months and sit there for 30-60min when the phone should update it self over the air. 



remember they are going to replace your phone with a refurb.

I have a few months left on my warranty, so if the refurbished phone doesn't work any better than my current one I'll just exchange that one as well untill I hopefully get one that actually does what it is supposed too. Lol. Thanks for the heads up though.

Re: Device Software Update: Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A)

So last night I checked for Software updates on my Galexy s7 Edge, and I started the update. Unfortunatly my internet stopped working halfway through. This was out of my control, as a devices connected were disconnected. But now everytime I check software update, it says "Current software is up to date" even though I am on Android 6 and Android 7.0 has a released for s7 edge a week now. Did this issue arrise from the disconnect, or will it soon "come back" and update with the notification? I hope you can help
