    Maybe it would be better to wait, since I've gotten my notice earlier today. Was told that at first, some updates make the unit lag...Hmm. What say you?
    In my experience with the update, I notice no performance enhancements but some minor issues that I could have done without.

    I would but I'm unable to, without root and after already downloading it I have no options to do so and I believe most users are in the same boat.

    I had this exact problem with my last software update. I ended up deleting a lot of apps and photos to clear up space. Once I had 3GB of free space, the update finally installed without any problems.

    Not on AT&T I am afraid. See #1.6 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide

    I, and others, find it ironic that America is leader of the free world and yet AT&T and Verizon users have less freedom with their Galaxy S5 phones than Communist China, Albania, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Libya, etc:

    Have you wiped your phone's cache partition?

    Experienced users always do a cache partition wipe after an update as it clears out any cached detritus from a previous firmware.

    Couple days in on this update. I believe the performance gains are real. For kicks I installed the real FB app and turned on VOLTE for a day to push the phone a little harder than usual. Pre-update I had VOLTE off and was using a sideloaded version of Facebook Lite.

    I'm still easily getting at least 5 hours SOT. Other notes...I have Google Now cards turned off, Samsung and ATT bloat disabled thru Package Disabler Pro; running Nova Prime with unread count badges. I toggle BT and location on only when needed. Besides FB the only other user app commonly running in the background is RemoteLink (for OnStar) in order to use it as a key FOB for my vehicle.

    No cache wipe post update either. Haven't had many phone calls to comment on call quality/connection for the baseband G900AUCU4CPA1.

    I HOPE the Marshmallow build for this device (once it comes) is as stable as the last 2 updates ATT has pushed out.

    A cache partition wipe after an update will make one's phone life better and avoid future complications. Easy as pie, as they say.

    Having a ton of trouble since i downloaded.... I first had to rid myself of a ton of videos to have enough storage. But now, phone turns off randomly and restarts, calls cut out where I can no longer hear the person on the other end (but they can still hear me) and when I plug it in to charge it says that the charger is not a supported charger. Any advice?

    Thought I would also mention...I don't know what they did to improve the software for the fingerprint scanner...but IT IS significantly improved; to the point that I'm using it as the main means to unlock my phone now. YMMV.

    Ever since that update, I can't access any internet or data connection through the cellular network. (I use StraightTalk, which is a reseller of ATT). I called them and they can't solve the problem. Is it possible this update caused my cell phone to lock when it was previously unlocked?

    The update was forced onto my Samsung Galaxy 5 Active and since then I have been able to get data or an internet connection via my cellular service/cell signal. I have StraightTalk, which is an ATT reseller. I called them and they were unable to fix the problem even with updating the APN settings. As anyone else had this problem. Is it possible for the update to lock a previously unloced phone.

    AT&T branded, running off Cricket Wireless I get this:
    AT&T Software Update
    Software Update Interrupted
    No Update is available for your device at this time. Please try again in 24 hours.

    Never downloads. Just this.
    Enabled all apps, and cleared cache, and get the same.
    I'm on 5.1.1, and I got that update while still on AT&T proper.
    Never had an update on Cricket service; Will I need to get a friends ATT sim to get OTA updates?
    I have the same issue but I'm still KitKat 4.4.2 Samsung galaxy s5 can you guys help me out

    Hello,

    I'm in a similar situation. unlocked at&t phone but in Belgium. Is it true that i won't get any updates for this phone while not on the AT&T network? Does that mean i have to travel to the US, buy a simcard of at&t there to get any further updates?

    would appreciate if you let me know how you solved your update issue

    thanks
