    Nothing on US Cellular. I'm hoping for Oreo in October.

    No indication what this update is for. Still on 7.0 but with August 1 security patch. According to the AT&T website April 27 is still the most recent update for G6.

    Agree other than the security patch update to August 1st I can't seem to find anything else?

    673MB is a *big* patch file for the monthly security update. Then again, I suppose if they are not releasing them monthly, they probably have to make up a cumulative patch, and that could get fairly large. May, June, July, and August might account for that large a file.

    "Network performance enhancement", huh? Interesting. I wonder if they turned on a new LTE band or something.

    My wife's G6 will be arriving today. I'll have to see if I can convince her to install SignalCheck Lite to see what frequencies she is using before the update applies, then after.

    After updating last night, I had some data issues today. Restarting radios seemed to fix it.

    I now have WiFi calling. As soon as it rebooted after the update, it forced me through the setup. Not sure if this was there previously.

    And the security patch for August.

    I now have WiFi calling.
    I had wifi calling with my Nexus on Project Fi before my current G6/US Cellular. I really enjoyed that but I was told by US Cellular that the G6 didn't have the hardware for wifi calling.

    Weird. T-Mobile comes with it out of the box.

    Man I hope this is true. My ole lady couldn't take the reception issues anymore and ditched her G6. It wasn't just her phone either. I have issues and a warranty replacement also has issues. I dug into it and a lot of people complaining about AT&T's G6 having a really jacked up radio. Gonna download now...

    I have WiFi calling now too. But I didn't get offered the set up until about 18 hours after the update.

    My AT&T model said it had WiFi calling out of the box but it didn't work until this update.

    Prior to this, my G6 was on the March 1st update so it had 5 months of updates to catch up on.

    I'm getting much more reliable service with this update. Areas that had no signal are now able to make calls. Had lag in a few games too which is now all but gone. Good update for me.

    I spoke too soon. Phone is stuttering like crazy again on certain apps. My woman was complaining about Candy Crush. I told her she was imagining things. I installed it on my phone to test and I literally get 1/2 second freezes during the cut scenes and gameplay. It happens often, not just here or there. Anyone else with an AT&T G6 wanna try out Candy Crush and see if they have the same issues?

    My battery life since the update has been awful.

    My battery usage was much higher than normal the day I installed the update, but since then has been not noticeably either better or worse. Similarly, I noticed some slowdowns and pauses during that first day that I hadn't been seeing, but they are not happening anymore. I attribute that first day's difference to the amount of work being done by the phone in downloading and installing the update.

    I'd tend blame apps (either included ones or 3rd party ones) for any battery problems you are seeing now - perhaps I have something disabled (I did a lot of disabling) that's behaving badly for you.

    WiFi calling is implemented differently for each carrier, and the protocol they use has to be in the carrier flavor of the firmware for each phone. My AT&T Note 4, for example, does WiFi calling great on AT&T, but I'd need the T-Mobile version of the same phone to use WiFi calling on T-Mo (or, in the case of what I tried, Mint).

    It's remotely possible but highly unlikely that the G6 doesn't have WiFi calling on USC because they depend on a specific radio or hardware feature that the G6 doesn't offer.

    It's FAR more likely that they just didn't take the time to implement it in their version of the G6 firmware.

    Didn't have coverage problems, but a few times people on the other end said I was breaking up. Haven't had any such complaints since thus update and it seems like I get 3 bars instead of 2 more consistently at the house.
