Can I Update An Un-Activated Galaxy S6 To 7.0?

I currently have an un-activated Galaxy S6 (was on Verizon but now on tracfone). I've heard of the update assistant for windows, but was afraid that I would have issues. I would really like to be able to update, as it has some features I would find useful.

Thanks!

Thank you all so much for the tips, but I figured out how to do it with the

Verizon Update Assistant. It worked just fine and my phone is now running

7.0!

I don't know why the update couldn't be checked for and completed over wifi only.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I know that used to be the norm, but I think changed at some point since I was able to update two different Moto X models on wifi only with the SIM cards removed.
