Great to see this coming out.  What is the plan for enabling wifi calling for non-ATT unlocked devices (SM-G930U)?

This update appears to enable Advanced Messaging as well which is not mentioned above. Is there a real Release Notes document that has a complete description of the changes?

@dhuntley, ATT doesn't provide updates for non ATT branded devices. Those either come from the manufacturer (non-branded) or the original branded carrier. In any event, I doubt you ever see it.

There is no plan they wont be getting enhanced LTE services any time soon.  IF you want wifi calling hdvoice vid calling and advance messaging you have to buy a ATT branded phone.

OK thanks.

My S7 edge still thinks it's up to date.

I have been changing the date and tried a bunch of times since last night.
