    After reading several of the posts, I went to Walmart; bought a Boost Mobile 'bring your on phone' kit for $10; installed the SIM card and in just a few minutes the update started downloading. DaveD63 is right. it feels like a new phone. Bluetooth issues are gone. Thanks to all who posted solutions.

    Hate to be debbie downer but with the feature and performance improvements achieved with N its a shame that the MXPE has been abandoned from future OS updates even though it has the capable hardware..

    Just checked Swappa and MXPEs in good condition can be had for a mere $135....

    It's an old phone, guys. Maybe it's hard to accept, but it's old. Specially with its 3GB RAM, which only 2.5GB RAM available. These are specs of a 4 years old phone. I get lag all the time. And it's heating up like a stove. This is an OK phone, nothing more.

    After almost 2 weeks with Nougat, it is like having a new phone. Battery life has improved and it's as quick as ever. That said, I'm close to getting the new Moto X4. I like Alexa plus it will get Oreo. My next question is whether to get it from Amazon where I can get an extra $50 off (making it $279) and have to deal with the lockscreen ads or from Moto and pay the $400. I could get it from Project Fi and cancel service but I'd like to have Alexa.

    Honestly, the X4 is an overpriced insult to the X line... Read the Android Police review (although it is of the Project Fi/Android One variant)... Heck, the name of the article is "Moto X4 (Android One edition) review: This is not the Moto X you're looking for", I would lol if it wasn't so sad to see how Moto has fallen.

    My wife's Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablet received the update to Nouget this evening, but our MXPE phones, which are on the Verizon network, have not yet received the update. I should note, however, that we're in no hurry, because both my MXPE, which is now almost 20 months old, and hers, which I bought for her last Christmas, are still functioning just fine. The battery life for my MXPE has started to decline a little, and sometimes I notice a slight lag in performance, but in general the phone is still an excellent device that operates flawlessly.

    I got tired of waiting and did the same thing as Sybilwayne30 and I received the update about 5 minutes later. What this tells me is that, despite what Lenovo says, this is a limited (mostly Sprint) update. I hated spending even $10 more on this phone but that was apparently the only way I was going to get the update.

    Since it's my backup phone I don't want to spend anything on it. Definitely a black mark on Lenovo on how this has been handled, but they've done a good job so far with updates on the 2016 Z line.

    It seems this has begun (continued or restarted???)... Several AT&T and T-Mobile users and a single (verified) Verizon user have posted in the official Lenovo forums as getting the update without any trickery, it just popped up and was available.

    Verizon users seem to be getting a slightly different build, verified by screenshots... 25.11.23 vs 25.11.22 that everyone else is getting, no word on the exact difference yet.

    Remember, the update seems to only be offered via push notification at this time... Jamming the Check for Updates button will NOT help you at all, Lenovo has to offer it to your device and it cannot be pulled at this time. Note if you get the notification take it quickly (within a few hours) and do not cancel it, or the window seems to close and you have wait until the next round that your phone is offered the update.

    7.0is likely all this device will ever get.

    so does this xpe require a SIM card to be installed to get the update? I'm using them for silly this as we have been forced to switch Lenovo/moto forever.

    i went the Boost/Sprint route and had the update notice before the carrier settings even finished installation.

    It's funny - it doesn't feel like a new phone, i just feel like it's identical to my Z now.

    Is that a good thing? What differences have you noticed?

    It feels new in the way Nougat felt for the first time, but having had it on the Z for so long now, it just feels like the Z in a more comfortable chassis with a larger LCD screen.
    RAM management is better. The first couple boots were a bit buggy, but by the third run it seems to have settled down. i haven't used it enough to analyze battery use.
    There are definitely some UI improvements in Nougat i had been eager to get, like display and font sizing - but there are also downsides, like loss of Root read privilege and WiFi file transfer.
    Down to two available SIMs.
