That's a great question and glad to help. Depending upon the model phone, typically to update your software on Android devices, you typically go into Settings/About/Software update. If an update is available, you will see it there. Each manufacturer "pushes" it to the phone. This is not sent from Verizon. Thanks for posting and always glad to help you on Social Media.
