    It's a "behind the scenes" thing that has default settings for certain network services... it may be that the area you're in is deploying "VoLTE" and this is turning on the controls in your phone for it...

    I never got a Verizon update until after iOS 8. No one at Verizon knew what it was for. One guy said it was about the ringtone issue Apple had. I got one more after that. I still have no idea what they were for.

    Carrier settings updates are for default phone settings that are not user accessible to control how the phone connects to the provider's network... and they are occasionally deployed when providers offer new or changed services, carrier settings updates enable controls in phones for the new/changed services.

    They can show up when connected to iTunes via USB... or, go to Settings>> General>> About - and if you've got one available, it should be offered in a pop-up.

    Yup. Exactly how it popped up for me last night. Just happened to go there because I was curious how much storage my Messages app was taking up and the update popped up. Los Angeles, CA so region might matter for some that may not be getting it.

    Huh? You do know that the carrier update is different from the iOS update, right?

    A carrier update doesn't update iOS. They're both different. A carrier update will update the carrier settings on the phone. iOS will not contain carrier updates.
