    It is mostly to put some bloatware on the phone with some bug fixes mixed in.

    How do you tell it to never install?
    I just get a time to delay 24 hrs at most. Unchecked auto install.

    I do not think you can tell it to ignore always especially since Verizon is loading bloatware to attempt to get you to increase how much you pay them. We are a captive audience for their advertising. At least it appears you can turn off most of the new bloat ware on this update.

    Very strange. Mine actually got significantly FASTER after this update. Like 2X faster.

    But more than likely, my speed increase and your decrease has nothing to do with the update and everything to do with our geographic location, proximity to a tower and total saturation of other users on that same tower at the instant you ran the speed test.

    You are probably correct. I have had faster speeds as the day has gone by.

    I wonder if the update fixes the hotspot workaround describe here:

    .



    As for new bloatware, it most likely can be disabled.

    Too bad the WiFi connectivity is still flaky and not real stable.

    I haven't had any issues on wifi. Always use it at my house or mine or the wife's parents house. All different brand routers and never an issue.

    I haven't had any wifi issues either.I think it has to do with certain phones only doing this. I mean not everybody's Note 3 have the same problems.

    99% of all wifi issues are with the router, the channel it's transmitting on and the security for same.

    Cool Re: Verizon now showing another OTA update available?

    As far as the bloatware...the only I see is VCloud. I don't see the the other 3 Apps they've included.....That's a good thing!

    Its not my router since the only device having issues is my Note 3. My old Note 2 and my wifes Note 2 does not have the issue. The router isnt too old either. Its an Asus AC router.

    I heard this turns on BAND4 AWS. Maybe that's why some folks have faster 4G? Can't comment further don't really understand the tech... But.... I heard it's great in the markets that have it... Maybe this update turns it on (without rooting like the others do)

    "Software change applies to block custom kernel being downloaded on device" so does this mean they are blocking the loading of custom ROMs?

    I 've got the update and the only thing I notice is that my 4G bars are lower. I still get 4G but only with 1 to 2 bars now. I am on travel and wonder if the area I am in (Denton, TX). No problems with WIFI. OS speed seems the same (Fast) no changes. I have disabled may of the Verizon bloatware. I tried to root my phone but it failed in Odin at the beginning (Cache), I thought my phone was bricked but was able to recover in Odin to factory OS before todays upgrade to MJE.
