    I have several theories as to why T-Mobile hasn't released Lollypop for the Note 4...yet. One theory...and I hope this is true...is that they're going to release the 5.1 upgrade rather than start at 5.0 and later release 5.0.2 and 5.1 in the future. My other theory is that they have to modify it (again, hopefully, 5.1) to operate properly with the Gear S. Otherwise, I don't really see any other reasonable explanations for this delay, since TMO won't offer any explanations. If anyone else has other theories (or even direct info), I'd sure like to hear them.

    Seems like all of the other carriers have been releasing 5.1 so I don't see that as an excuse. It's annoying they are taking so long.

    So do you think it could be to make sure the marriage with the Gear S could be a reason? The Gear S is unique to the other wearables on the market because it's capable of call forwarding and/or as a standalone device. That could require some additional work to get them to mesh properly.

    I have no clue what the hold up is. I know that it is getting ridiculous

    As long as they get the bugs out BEFORE the release, I'm happy. If it's buggy, then the wait makes no sense.

    Remember when the note 4 released last year, everyone was saying why did T-Mobile get the note 4 before everyone. Kind of ironic it's turned around on the lollipop update. But you guys got the better end of the deal, I'd rather get the phone sooner then the update.

    I might try this and see how it goes. I know there is a memory leak that wasn't fixed until 5.1 so that kind of worries me.

    My phone works perfectly on KitKat so I kind of go along with if it works....

    Reality is that they won't.

    I honestly don't think we will see the release until late summer or even fall.

    Go to THIS PAGE and select the Note 4, it says that T-Mobile doesn't even have the OS version for testing yet, only that the manufacturer has agreed to support Lollipop.

    If you click on other phones such as the 2+ year old Nexus 4, it says it is already released for that phone.

    This is why I say we have a very long wait.

    I recently left Verizon for Tmobile. While I was with Verizon i received the Lollypop download, and I downloaded it to my Samsung Galaxy Note 4... The download had taken 45 minutes..after the download I reset my phone from the factory...The changes were nice! My phone was faster!...The only problem I noticed was with the wifi...I was at Starbucks, and I made sure my wifi was set to on, but the wifi would keep turning off!..I lost some data!..I contacted Samsung and they told me to turn off the data...
