    Still no update. Anxiously waiting to receive a Nexus 5X from the mail tomorrow. I'm done waiting 5 or 6 months for software updates from Samsung and AT&T.

    If it weren't for the Nexus line being so plain and kind of boring, I would think about it myself.

    It will be nice to have Mashmallow, but the whole Smart Switch app that replaced Kies is really bad. I can't even seem to get it to connect to my Note 5. I've tried restarting my computer, reinserting the USB into the port and to my computer. Nothing. Then when it does connect it hangs and crashes. how can I back up my device prior to updating to Marshmallow IF I can't use Smart Switch or Kies 3?

    You can always flash roms but then again not many people want to that route as its risky and you void your warranty

    I recommend you start fresh with a factory reset. All I'm backing up are my contacts and everything else will be fresh. It minimizes the issues that you may have. I've been waiting forever for the update so that I can factory reset

    I haven't had any issues with connecting my Note 5 using Smart Switch. It's faster then Kies was with backing up your phone. I didn't know why your having issues. Try calling Samsung support and they should help you.

    Sounds like lots of work on TouchWiz. Since I use Nova that wouldn't matter to me. According to the article's timeline, it should be available now. Anyone want to volunteer wasting their 24 hour software update check?

    I have a trick with package disabler Pro can keep checking for updates and not wait 24 hrs.

    You can also just change your date manually ahead and it will allow you to check for an update, however this screws with other things like the weather widget updating

    Also, I don't think that article is accurate, because phonearena stated the 11th for the Note 5 and the 14th for the S6 on AT&T. I think whoever wrote this article is confused.

    Well, I just "wasted" my software check for the day, and there's nothing new here (Missouri).

    I just received this response from an AT&T rep via chat. Take it with a grain of salt.

    Thank you for your patience cron912. I am seeing the update for Marshmallow will be sent to your device on March 31 2016

    WelI, I was able to backup my files this time with installing in the new drivers, and my computer recognized the device. Took about 3 + hours to backup everything, but I'm Ready for Marshmallow now.

    I'm glad you were able to back up your phone and I'm surprised it took so long. My phone backs up in less then 5 min

    Well it seemed like Documents was the hold up, but after it finished syncing there were Zero items in the file. So , *shrugs* .

    Yeah really. I've given up and decided to factory reset now instead of waiting for marshmallow first. I'll probably do it again when it comes out

    No. This isn't true. Verizon has already received 6.0.1.

    AT&T is just taking their sweet time.
