    I noticed the same thing. It sure looks like an oversight to me.

    Do you connect to, (and have saved) any WiFi hotspot that is connected to an AT&T network or device?

    It's in their advance Wi-Fi settings menu, as in embedded in the firmware, not in the list of available Wi-Fi network .
    I'm on AT&Tand theirs looks just like mine

    That's funny. For all of the stalling, "certifying", and "testing" VZW claims these update have to go through, you'd think they'd catch something like that.

    Interesting to assume that Samsung must've put that in there and failed to remove it or tweak it for the VZW version.

    There's no such option on my 6P, so I have to guess that it's a deal/option that Samsung made.

    I'm sure Verizon will release an OTA update. I will then have to FDR my phone....No thanks.

    I haven't seen anyone say that it actually works.

    I think Verizon was planning on skipping this update all together but do to the backlash they decided to quickly push it out. I think they snagged the AT&T update quickly threw in some bloat and their boot animation and sent it out. No other way for that to get in there.

    My guess is they won't own up to it saying that or they will push it off as a disgruntled employee or getting hacked. However now that I type if they were hacked I doubt they will ever own up to it. They will just push a quick update and not give an explanation.

    But I can't recall a bigger #vzwfail than this one.....

    Imho, once you leave the store, you are on your own, and lucky to get any updates.
