    Downloading update now (12:05 pm EDT via OTA). Checked multiple times yesterday and earlier this morning via both OTA and KIES. Will post details after completion.

    Now is an excellent time to follow ironass' direction about backing up: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...ml#post5203492

    downloading now 585 area code

    Also chatted with Verizon earlier today who told me I needed to do a factory reset because I was not seeing the update. Update started without the reset, but I did back up everything any way

    Is it just a random crapshoot when you get it? In CA, nothing for me...

    Update complete (Tampa, FL- 813 area code).
    Total time from download initiation to last reboot/updating apps completion: approx 30 minutes
    Phone was initially sluggish at first and a tad warm from the update process.
    Rebooted phone, and appears to be working fine. I agree with earlier comments about phone screen being more responsive and quicker. Plan on wiping cache partition shortly.
    Android 6.0.1
    Android Security Patch Level May 1, 2016

    Hope this helps.

    Updated about 2 hours ago in MD (301 area code). Wiped cache partition and ran sd maid to clear any duplicate or orphaned files. So far so good.

    also wifi calling works well. I just put phone into airplane mode and it used my office wifi. I receive and make calls easy with good sound.

    any way to force it? other than through the settings menu. I am traveling tomorrow and would like to have WiFi calling. Kies doesn't have any updates yet.

    Ugh

    Just updated mine. About a half hour. Nothing lost. Backed up important info.

    1 question, I was prompted to accept or denied security updates? Says it does it automatically if accepted. Good idea?

    Just updated mine. I have something new going on. I use fingerprint lock and when I reboot the phone, it tells me "Your phone was restarted and needs to be unlocked with the password." After using the password the first time, I can then use the fingerprint. Is anyone else seeing this?

    Does anyone care to guess when the update will be available on the Software Upgrade Assistant, Kies, or Smart Switch? It's not yet. I'm on a Verizon MVNO and don't expect to receive the update over the air.

    WARNING.....

    I just upgraded my S5 to Android 6.... If you have previously set up a lock-screen pattern and/or PIN but DO NOT CURRENTLY use it, refresh your memory on what they are. I did not have lock-screen security enabled prior to upgrading but post-upgrade, it was set. Thanks Verizon/Samsung! So, after upgrading to Android 6, a pattern lockscreen was set. After several incorrect attempts, a backup PIN was required. I knew neither...

    I had to jump through hoops to find a way to unlock the phone. Samsung has a website (if you have an account) - http://findmymobile.samsung.com that you can use to remotely control your phone. Click the LOCK button and set a new PIN. Your phone will be re-locked with this new code, overwriting the existing... unlock the device with this new pin and you are good to go! UPDATE: Just click the UNLOCK MY DEVICE button and overwriting the existing lockscreen security settings... This will wipe out any lockscreen security that you have enabled.

    Hope this helps someone else... Hopefully, this is a ONE-OFF situation and hope you don't experience the same issue as I did.

    Is anyone else getting a "cannot connect, please try later" error with the check for updates? It's showing up on my sgs5 and my sgs7, all other network activity with both phones is OK.

    This is the error I see on my sgs5. The sgs7 shows an error that more specifically mentions connection as the issue.

    One small glitch that happened to me after the update was related to favorites/contacts with pics/images. While the image displayed on the Favorites menu for those contacts, when I went to actually call them, the image did not display on the actual call page. I found I had to go and re-associate those images for those contacts.

    This did not happen to all of my favorite contacts, just about 4 of them (I have 10). All appears to be working fine now.

    Updated last night. Seems to be working fine. I had been planning on a reset afterwards so will do that today. Otherwise it feels a little snappier but no changes. Phone works fine. Wifi calling is nice.

    It may be where you're trying to download it at. I tried checking for the update while I was at work and got this message. When I tried it at home on my wi-fi connection, it downloaded and installed with no problems. I like how it works so far. By the way, I'm in area code (812) -- Southwestern Indiana.

    I updated yesterday afternoon. So far it is a bit snappier and I haven't had any of the long 5+ second delays and random unresponsiveness that were plaguing this phone on Lollipop. It's still got the typical Samsung lag and jank but probably about equivalent to when it was on KitKat, which is acceptable.

    I am not sure how but the power up sound has gone away (yay) even when I am not in vibrate. the only sound I have off is media. Before no matter what I did the power up sound would play, definitely not complaining
    Otherwise the upgrade has gone pretty good. Jury is still out in the battery usage but I have 2 almost 2 year old batteries that I swap out so they could be coming to the end of their useful lives
