    Kies doesn't back up your settings or the layout of your screens. It's a very basic backup.

    kies 3 does alot more than basic backup.....contacts....texts...s note & planner...photos...music...(internal)...apps...yes apps..accounts settings

    Are you using the latest KIES version 3 or are you still on version 2.6 which will not work with the Note 4?
    Thank you. That fixed it. Now it asks for the serial number in Kies.....none on the sticker on the bottom of the battery compartment. There is none on the about status of the phone......no serial number on the box, all I see everywhere is the MEID number. I can't believe the serial number isn't anywhere. I even checked the verizonwireless page. Does anyone know where it might be?

    Thanks, yeah, I tried to chat with someone from Samsung, they weren't any help, so I can't get a hold of Verizon until tomorrow when they're open. Ridiculous they don't list a serial number anywhere or that Kies even needs one.

    Go to About Device then Status, your serial number is listed there.

    I tried last night to update. It let me download the software but not install it with kies. I went the opposite direction and went back to kitkat!

    I've checked Kies for the last three days and still nothing. Anyone have any suggestions as to what I should do?

    It could be that the update was removed from the update servers, or wherever Kies pulls from for firmware. I know for sure I saw a new firmware in Kies, and Sammobile also posted it. Checked again this morning, and its not there in Kies. Perhaps the update was pulled.

    Is this the article you're referencing?

    Verizon’s Galaxy Note 4 is getting a software update, not Android 5.1.1 - SamMobile

    Then I'll just wait for 5.1.1

    Yes, I saw that article. Sammobile also posted the firmware to their firmware download site. If I understand correctly, that may be the same image that Kies pulls down. Firmware for Samsung SM-N910V - SamMobile

    Yes, I think thats a good plan. Not clear what the supposed new update provides or fixes. Once more is known it may make sense to do so, but until then waiting is perfectly fine.

    Crazy thing is, when I connect my USB cable and fire up Kies I can see the Build # of the new update pop up for a quick second and then it goes back to the BOAF Firmware and says I'm running the latest Firmware. Haven't tried the VZW Software Update program again but will when I get off in the morning.

    I just started receiving an OTA system update. I'm betting it's probably this same one discussed here. I'll update my post if I see anything different.
