    Is anyone else getting this message when trying to check for updates?

    I've tried turning my phone off and on again, and everything else seems to be okay.

    It might be a problem on the server side. Wait a day or two and try again.

    @Albie I have the OEM version and have the April security update. I am also on software version MMB29K.G935FXXU1APD3 which has the camera patch and accidental touch fix. If you have a phone bought through your carrier it is likely that the will hold up the process as it will have to be approved and tested to make sure it all works (and with their extra bloat).

    This is why I upgrade or by from CPW, choose an unlocked phone and choose a SIM to go with it.

    I've also received the update on ee in the UK not sure if I should download, as my friend who downloaded it last night is having problems with texts containing emoji being sent as mms

    I'm on unbranded firmware (not EE specific) and just tried sending a message with emoji and it sent as sms just fine. Bear in mind that the default sms app converts long messages to mms when their length exceeds 2 x sms which I find quite annoying. I would say it's worth the update, touch screen response is much improved for me

    I'll give it another go in a few days. As far as I'm aware I am unlocked. I am on the Isle of Man though, so I wonder if this may be causing problems!

    Release PD3, build date 7th April, for the unbranded U.K. models of the S7 and S7 Edge, their 3rd release each, to-date since launch, on the Exynos octa core chipset, is certainly a big improvement and has the April Security patch.

    You could try connecting your phone to Samsung Kies for the download or download and flash the firmware, using Odin.

    I've had the update without any problems, phone is direct from Samsung and on 3 network. Not noticed any difference to be honest.

    I noticed a bit difference in the touch screen response. I didn't really have problems with edge touches before but I did find the screen was too sensitive when scrolling and would often select on the screen as if I'd pressed it when all I wanted to do was scroll. I don't think this has happened once since the update.

    Wifi calling on EE with an unbranded handset was a nice bonus!

    As usual I'm on Three UK and no updates so far. Wonder how long before I get this one maybe next month lol!

    Last time I will ever buy a branded device.

    Between I don't Samsung Kies helps update quicker for branded devices.

    I have an S7 on three and got an update about 3 weeks ago but nothing since. I have the security updates for Feb 2016.

    On my Vodafone Edge I got an update a few days ago which took the security updates to Apr 2016.

    So they are coming out at different times.

    I've actually rang Three UK and they don't have a clue about security updates and said it's upto Samsung but Samsung say they give all carriers the updates to push out.

    We will lucky to see any updates if any at all lol!

    I had an update today. It was about 180mb in size. Strange thing is that my keyboard vibration has now become very low and almost none existent since the update where as before it used to be a strong haptic feedback when keys were pressed.

    I have a brand new (one day old) S7e which I bought SIM free from CPW - it downloaded an update immediately which I believe was the MMB29K.G935FXXU1APD3 update.

    I have to say as a new user I find that my palm often triggers the edge and therefore doesn't register the touch I'm trying to make.

    You can change the haptic feedback in the sound settings. It is weaker for a certain setting which I actually like

    So, I factory reset the phone, and I got the update immediately. Little teething problems I guess... Hope this helps anyone else that experiences the same/similar problem!

    Mine has channels to a lower haptic feedback when typing for sure even though it's all set to full. The haptic motor is fine though because when I go to put it on silent/vibrate it buzzes like normal. It's just typing.

    That's strange. I did find the haptic feedback reduce for a given setting but it is still strong enough. I have mine turned down almost as low as it goes, it would be way too strong if I put it on full like you have it. No difference after a reboot?

    Agreed. I had a real dilemma on whether to get the phone from ee or carphone Warehouse. Glad I went to CPW as after the last update the phone is more up to date that the ee version and has wifi calling too!

    According to SamMobile Vodafone and O2 have released their firmware updates.

    Let's see how far EE and Three Mobile lag behind.

    Fingers crossed maybe by end of the week.

    Please post if anyone gets update on EE or Three as I will hopefuly
