    My vote is replacement. The service center opens at 10 so I'll be calling then.

    I wouldn't let them even try and install the update at this point and if it takes, I wouldn't want it.

    just because I'm curious.....what happens when you have to send the phone to Samsung? Does this mean you're sh!t out of luck with no phone until they send it back?

    They don't give you a phone. I always have an extra phone myself. If nothing else, you can get a $10 dumb phone and activate it with your number while your phone is gone, if you don't have another.

    Taking the OS off and putting it back on, can do wonders, it will correct things that no number of reflashes or resets will do.

    In Plano and in Los Angeles, they have walk in locations, those might can be done while you wait or that day. They are planning on having more walk in locations around the country and they can't remove the OS at Best Buy.

    It takes 7-10 days for you to get your phone back.

    my S6 active is ok for now but haven't gotten the update yet. Glad I live mere miles from the Plano (my hometown) facility.

    Now I'm not positive you can get the OS done in a day there, but you can get the battery replaced in a day there.

    I tried the update from AT&T for last two days. eight tries myself all the downloads failed at install. I called AT&T and they sent the download to my phone it failed. I went to Best Buy and Samsung didn't have the new download to 5.1.1. I called again AT&T last night they sent the download to my phone I thought it's not going to work. Well it did! Don't give up call AT&T have them send the download to your phone. I didn't change a thing from all the times I tried so it's on their end I believe. BTW my phone works super great fast smooth with the 5.1.1

    Got the update a few days ago and it installed the first time with no problems. The phone does "seem" faster in some areas (switching apps with multi-tasking etc.) but of course without any real tests being done its hard to determine that its not just a placebo. Which is crazy because the phone was already blinding fast. I didn't care much for the new icons since I use Nova and have an icon pack installed but Samsung Pay is pretty neat I must say. I have used both Android Pay (at Whole Foods) and Samsung Pay (at Panera) and both worked with no problems. Great update!

    Now just cross your fingers and see if we get Marshmallow next year.

    Here are all the feature changes I noticed, including little things:

    –You can no longer select text in an input field by double tapping a word; now must long press to select.

    –Volume buttons work normally in the Messaging app (previously they changed the font size)

    –You can't grab the scrollbars on the sides of most apps to quick scroll (this was a feature that worked for most apps in 5.0.2)

    –Obviously, Samsung Pay

    –A new app from AT&T or Samsung: Games (which can be uninstalled entirely)

    –Apps don't reload immeidately after you switch to a different app via the Recent button and then switch back. However, they do still reload on occasion, like with Chrome.

    –Recents button responds ever so slightly faster (the lag is probably inherent because of the multitasking feature)

    –Live streaming is a new mode in Camera, to automatically upload to YouTube

    –I'm pretty sure the Messaging app settings layout got tweaked but I can't remember how

    –I'm possibly wrong, but I think the font settings in Display apply more universally now. Previously I had it set to "very small" but the font in Gmail emails didn't seem to be affected. Now, Gmail emails are small like other text.

    –I've heard of the option to change the parallax effect in TouchWiz launcher, but I'm using the GNL and am too lazy to check TW

    That's all I've noticed so far.

    I tried the OTA update fromm AT&T about 5 times...all failed. Went to Best Buy and even though their software said it was successful twice, when we rebooted the phone, it did not install the update. I deleted my cache files (about 8 GBs) even thought I had 10 GB free space. I called AT&T and they pushed the updated to my phone. I updated right away when it finished downloading and the update was successful!

    i would recommend calling AT&T to push the update to your phone. File may not get downloaded properly when you request for the update.

    Hey guys I need some help. Tried doing the update several times. It'll download and when I try to do it I get the att logo and it says update failed. I went to best buy and the Samsung rep said they didn't have the new update in their system and to go to att. So I went to att and they said they don't do updates there. So they said call att. So i called att to get the update, they said my phone was downloading it. And when I tried it just now it did the same thing again and said update failed. So what do I do now?

    I have tried several times to update my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and every time it downloads and when my phone turns off and then back on to start installing the new 5.1.1 update it fails and I get the little dead android with the red exclamation coming out of his belly. I had read trying to make sure all my system apps were enabled and so I did and it still didn't work. ATT store rep told me I may have to do it through the Samsung Kies online via my computer, or factory reset my phone. Any other ideas? I really don't want to do either.

    My S6 wouldn't install 5.1.1 successfully, so I took it to Best Buy on Thursday. They didn't have 5.1.1 so they decided to push 5.0.2 back on it hoping it would clear up my issue and allow 5.1.1 OTA to install. Instead it wrecked my phone and broke the OS connection to the radio (no IMEI, no mobile network options in the settings). They couldn't get it working again and pushed me off on AT&T. All AT&T could do for me was warranty exchange my phone, but since we don't have a depot that handles that locally, I need to wait until they ship it to me. I should have it today, but it certainly has left me pissed off with Samsung. Four days without a phone is not fun.

    It's on the bottom right. If you google "Samsung 5.1.1. camera" you see it described in a places.

    Having gone through this, I decided to wipe my phone to reset to factory settings. Did the update after that, and it worked. Pain in the rear, but the improvements in 5.1.1 were worth it.
