    It's November, and we still don't have 5.1.1. Sorry for complaining, but i'd like to know at least if they will push 5.1.1. If that means asking a store rep I'd rather get this information from a reliable source, and not some bogus website. I'm not having any problems currently, but this waiting game that we as android users play with every phone that's not a nexus is ridiculous at this point

    I'm sure they probably will, but you can generally expect them to push it out last.

    Verizon does not care about anything like that. It's only objective is to make sure we have good service.

    I am beginning to think the same. The only other thing that's a possibility is skip to 6.0 by the spring of 2016? Maybe, I am just speculating.

    I heard from someone who asked a Verizon store rep that they have the OTA ready, it's just a matter of when they push it to us.

    Big question is why are they waiting? Especially since other providers have updated their N4.

    Why are they waiting? Because they are Verizon!

    Verizon reps are the most untrustworthy sources. No one really knows. Verizon couldn't care less when we get the update.

    Verizon: if we wait long enough they'll just buy a new phone.

    That's exactly what happened with my last phone

    Understood....but the point was to have the question answered. There is a reason for the delay - getting Verizon to give the answer may be difficult.

    Maybe they are taking their time to ensure the update works without any bugs. Or they are adding an excessive amount of bloat.

    I am in the process of making my Note 4 self aware.

    That is rather optimistic, change it to December 2017 and you might be in the right ball park.

    Verizon cellular service is actually very good. #VZWWin. Specifically - waiting on this update knowing that the Note 4 (flagship phone) is now 2 software updates behind. #VZWFail

    Hand down Verizon is the worst carrier to provide any update. This not only applies to Android device but with Windows devices too. Either way, we stick with them because of their implacable service and a wide coverage area. I've considered leaving Verizon for AT&T, but end up sticking around, because their customer service is awesome. It does make me angry to wait this long for an update. But Verizon is so big, they can care less about how we feel. They lose money from having to deal with pushing out an update that may potentially break phones and having to repair and replace these phones. I remember once upon a time, I was a cellphone rep for multiple different carriers. You'll be surprise how many people try to work the system and how many cases of broken devices are due to updates. This sheer reason is why I think Verizon takes their time testing and verifying updates are ready to be pushed out.

    In regards to quality of service, Verizon is impeccable and you get what you pay for each month. But this is the price you pay if you go the Android route. Even the nexus 6 on Verizon doesn't get updates on a timely manner. That's why you get an iPhone on Verizon, or go with an unlocked nexus device.
