I have two Samsung Victory phones with Android 4.1.2 installed. Neither has an update option anywhere in settings. How do I check for updates?

    I just got the S Victory today and am having the same problem.
    Does anyone have info on how to update the prl profile so i can use the premier service and do tethering? I signed up for the unlimited plan and premier so i should be able to do tethering according what i have read.

    Please Help!

    On my Victory, in settings, 2nd from bottom is system update. Must scroll down a lot in settings to get down there. Inside system update are 4-5 items. Update prl, update profile, Samsung updates. Android updates, etc.

    @beraw‌ I think people are finding out here, that there are no update setting for PRL/Profile....It's suppose to update once the phone resets.<<<could be wrong there...

    here is what sprint has...

    @Rich Sias ( LastDay: 16th )‌ , you got the phone before they remove the update option. Victory phone now are order without the update option on. I think a restart of the phone does the update for you. So far freedompop has not address this issue.

    I think power off and power on does these updates, there no other option within the phone to do this.

    @Brian McPherson

    thanks for the confirmations

    basic reset.... ##786#...but i think it requires a msl#???

    I seen a factory reset...

    1) Remove the battery from the phone and reinsert it.

    2) While the phone is off, hold down the volume down rocker and the power button for 10 seconds, this should lead to the boot menu

    3) From the Boot menu navigate with the up/down volume rockers and select with the power button, select the "RECOVERY" option.

    4) Next, select the "Wipe data/Factory reset" option and select yes on the following page.

    5) Go through the phone set-up just as you did when you first received it.

    6) Enter your Freedom Phone email and you're done! (If you are not prompted to do so automatically, you may need to open the FreedomPop Messaging app and enter it there)

    But power on and power off would be a great start
    hope this helps

    Cannot say that to all android phone, what it do on restart on the Victory is it go into update to apps on the phone before it boot up. I post a photo of it when I get it done.

    That's crazy!!!!So each time you shut your phone off for the night, you run the risk of having a profile update that your not happy with. If the first profile ran the phone great/Perfect...your stuck updating each time....But I guess its a great way to stay updated...

    Save the reset and the factory reset as a last option...make sure before you even attempt to try>>>>You have your MSL#
