Re: i cannot update my s8 plus

Att phones update OTA, when in the USA, and using ATT SIM card and service.  You cannot update outside the USA.

Re: i cannot update my s8 plus unlocked

Hello @Amarslwt!

Unfortunately AT&T phones cannot update outside the USA or  without using AT&T for service. Were you in the USA with an AT&T SIM installed, and using AT&T for service you could update your phone following the tutorials on our Device Support page.

We hope this helps!
