    Any time frame for the Sprint update?
    Updates for the carrier branded minority and regional variants are at the discretion of the carrier concerned I am afraid. Some carriers may choose, as they have in the past, not to pass these updates on to their customers.

    I finally got an OTA update from Rogers yesterday.

    They skipped the March security patch; I recieved April, plus a UI update from Samsung.

    The total DL size was 279.xxMB.

    Install Phone INFO ★Samsung★, free from the Play Store, and post your phone's Product Code that the app displays. There are numerous Product Codes, obviously, for the Global model.

    Thank you, I tried it with the Kies3 app but it comes up with unsupported device and says to use SmartSwitch which did not give me the option to update.

    My bad mcbarrett! The S7 is not supported by Kies. Looks like patience with an OTA update or use Odin, then. As you can see, Samsung are releasing a lot of updates lately.

    Correct! However, falling in line with Verizon's historical update policy, it should be...





    Bear in mind that unlike all other S7/Edge phones, apart from AT&T, Verizon is not updated by Samsung and instead, release their own heavily modified firmware, themselves.

    Oh believe me I know. I've been a customer of Verizon for a very long time. They have never been quick with updates. lol

    You know what I am talking about then. Once the honeymoon period is over we will see the gap widening between, say, the Global unbranded models and the U.S. and Canadian carrier minority variants when it comes to actual firmware updates, (not just security patches), on the S7/Edge models. For instance, the Galaxy S5 for Verizon has not received an actual firmware update, (changelist increase), for nearly a year now. In contrast, the unbranded model has had 5 actual firmware updates for bugfixes and new features. Historically, T-Mobile (USA) is the best bet, usually, for updating their firmware. They are already on their 3rd release for the S7 Edge.

    Yeah, I don't why they are always so crappy about updating their phones. Phone brands and OS doesn't seem to matter either. I used to have a Windows phone and it always took forever for updates, if they ever decided to push one out. I think that's my only complaint with Verizon, the service has been great otherwise.

    I'm not sure of the difference, but mine is model G935W8, and yes, version PD3 is my new software version.
