    Samsung note 4. With Verizon since 10/15. Just got notification for my 4th software update.
    1st, they replaced my device due to battery issues...then finally replaced the battery.
    2nd, killed my Samsung SD card... Samsung finally replaced it under warranty.
    3rd killed another battery, again replaced by Verizon.

    Haven't had my original apps loaded since 1st issue, instead opting to use a wifi iocean rock...which is free of updates.

    Latest update fixes issues with outlook 2003 & 2007.

    Anyone else tired of these forced updates.. especially when they may bring zero benefits?

    No, there should have been way more than 4 updates.

    Since when have they forced you to do updates?

    You get the notification and once you pick INSTALL LATER...you can only do it a couple times, then it installs for you.
    If my phone is working fine, why do I want an update?

    They're mostly software and security upgrades.

    Except when it specifically states it is for issues with 10+ year old software that very few people use....

    It also has the latest security update.

    Again, I don't care about security updates. If my phone is working fine, I shouldn't be forced to update. It should be up to the individual.

    Did the wonderful update this weekend... Cleared partition cache after and updated all apps.
    Less than 3 hours MINIMAL usage... 78% battery remaining. Here we go again....

    Verizon solution? Factory reset to a phone that was working fine before the update and is now a brick.
