    My phone just blipped and is now downloading and installing a firmware update for "wifi improvements" and a couple other things I didn't catch. Said would take 25 minutes.

    Finished and all okay. It took 12% off my battery and had to wait for my SD card apps to sync, but otherwise see nothing outside the norm. Hopefully this will help those who were having issues with wifi.

    Hopefully I will now be able to have BT enabled AND use WiFi at the same time...

    Hopefully it won't mess up anything. I had no problems prior.

    Kind of like what Apple did with 9.3. They had to pull it. It was messing up the 5S and older phones. If you had bought a used 5S and updated the phone, the bad upgrade required the original owners apple ID and password to reactivate it. It basically bricked the phone. Didn't matter if you had already activated it and were using your Apple ID and password. What a mess they have right now. Many unhappy people with used phones.

    Only thing I noticed is that a few times since the update when I flicked on my phone, there was a message on my screen that said sorry can't connect at this time even though it was connected.

    Yeah both my wife and I were sitting in the Mesa airport waiting on the delayed flight last Friday. My old S4 connected right away to the airport's wifi. However, both my wife's S7 and my S7E would NOT connect to the WiFi.

    At home, the WiFi connection was also very slow. Once I turned off BT, the Wifi on both phones starting working as expected.

    After yesterday's update, the WiFi is working as expected with BT on. Issue appears to be fixed for our phones.

    I believe it was supposed to fix that. I had read these reports but never had the issue. Or, rather never noticed it happen.

    I'm still having WiFi problems since the update. I've rebooted my phone and router with no success. I see it across multiple WiFi locations.

    I still have issues post update, mainly being that the wifi disconnects and reconnects every so often.
