    Haven't seen any mention of this here yet. Or maybe I'm late to the party. Supposed to be an update tomorrow for our S6's. What everyone's been waiting for right? From Cnet earlier today

    Yeah I'll be happy to get that. At work I'll occasionally drop calls because the reception isn't that great in the basement. This should fix that problem for me

    Like the Android Central article states, the update is being rolled out in phases, so don't plan on it being available for all customers on day one.

    True, but once it starts rolling out (being pushed) you can manually check and it should download.

    Not always. Most get rolled out to batches of phones. Even if you manually check it doesn't show up.

    I installed the update and noticed the signal defaulted to my home wifi right away. There was a popup option instructing me to enter my address so in an emergency like a 911 call I suppose they would know which wifi I was on and hence my location. Also said I should do this whenever I'm using some other wifi? Not doing that every time anyway. Haven't done this yet as it may be undoable once done and not sure if I want to or not. Will be going out shortly so I will see if my signal defaults back to 4G as I expect it will. I double checked my wifi settings to make sure scanning was still disabled, it was. I would think that is all I need do to keep my S6 from trying to connect with every wifi service nearby as I go about my day, and if I need to use this feature while out I can scan for a network. Doubtful I'd use it anytime other than home unless there was no Verizon service but there was wifi service. Like a remote hotel perhaps in the deep woods somewhere that actually has working wifi. A cool feature none the less tho and I did notice on a call it sounded crystal clear. Only made one so far so time will tell. I hope the handoff to 4G calling is seamless once we leave our wifi area.
    How's everyone else doing?

    Can you now send a text message from the built in application over wifi if you don't have a cellular signal?

    Man, my battery's been dropping like a rock since I did the download. I sure hope this isn't the new normal. I always got good battery life previously

    You may be right, I don't charge my phone overnight, woke up this morning at 60%. The norm is 85-90%. Guess we'll see if this is the new norm (at least until 6.0).

    Did you enable Wifi calling? If so, wonder if it would improve by disabling it or whether something else in the update is to blame. Mine also seemed to drain about an extra 10% overnight and I do have Wifi calling enabled.

    For those with battery problems check wifi always scanning. I had mine off but after update it turned it back on.
    Just an idea.

    I have a company phone. When I went to turn it on, got a message that I need to contact my account administrator.

    Did you clear the system cache after updating? I always do that after an update. So far, my battery life seems to be about the same.

    Yeah, that's SOP for me on any update. Another thing I noticed yesterday while watching my battery drop was the "cell standby" was way lower than usual. , like 9%. Before updating it was consistently between 25>35%. Calls made were all wifi of course so that"s different. Had it on the charger ovenite as usual and hoping for better results today. Seems more normal so far, so fingers crossed.
