This software update provides the latest security patch and support for BYOD (“bring your own device”) when making the switch to Verizon from select carriers. It also includes the new Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) feature, which allows you to use two phone numbers on the same device.


If you’re not already on Verizon’s 5G Nationwide network, Galaxy Note20 users from other North American carriers will now be able to bring their device and instantly switch to Verizon. Just insert and activate a new Verizon SIM card in your Galaxy Note20 device and it will automatically adapt to the Verizon network and experiences.

Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS)

DSDS enables you to use two phone numbers on the same or different networks with Dual SIM support. Subscribers can register 1 physical SIM and 1 eSIM on their Galaxy Note20 device. You can send and receive calls and messages on either phone number. One mobile data network can be used at a time as DDS (Designated Data Subscription). You can set the primary SIM and default phone number in Settings > Connections.
