    Hmmmm. My KitKat 4.4 is stable & happy on my Z3v. And hasn't Android already moved on to Marshmallow? So...how will this be something that will provide any meaningful improvement to reading email & looking at pictures? It's not like I have any desire to watch a 6" movie, I have a TV for that. If I wanted to chase marketing, I'd just buy an iThingy...wait, no, I don't think anything could get me to do that, hahaha.

    Installing now.

    UPDATE - It's 2 downloads. First one preps for Lollipop and the second one is apparently is the 5.1 download that needs to be done via WIFI, which I <sadly> do not have at work.

    Too little, too late for me. I pre-ordered the S7 from AT&T on Tuesday...

    Tried to install this update, and now my phone is stuck in a reboot loop. I can't get it to just shut off either, just keeps booting up and shutting off. Doesn't get past the initial black screen with SONY and XPERIA.

    Since its constantly turning off and on I can't get it to connect to the PC Companion either.

    Anyone else get this issue?


    Edit: Ended up doing a factory reset. Not the best thing that could have happened, but seems to be working now.

    My boyfriend and I have the Z3v as well, did the updates, and can't text using any app, not just the stock. He's on the phone now trying to get through to their tech support.

    Be forewarned prior to installing, I'm having the same issue.

    Same issue confirmed on my xperia z3v. No downloaded message apps work, and the default one isn't displaying notifications properly. This problem persists after extensive tinkering with the notification settings as well.

    Spoke to a Verizon tech rep. They suggested a factory reset. I'll try it tomorrow.

    Happen to reach a solution to your issue?

    I took it to VZ they told me to message using the messenger plus app. But it would send but I couldn't see or open new messages (the app was unusable)

    I've tried LOTS of apps. The only way I can get SMS to work is using SMS/Google Hangouts. I hope they fix it...

    factory reset works, talked to tech support again. theyve figured out a fix since so many people have been contacting them about this. Lollipop is still there after factory reset beacuse OS updates cannot be undone. It got rid of the "bugs". messaging works now

    unfortunately its like starting over unless you backed everything up, but you have a fresh "new" phone with a clean lollipop install

    So should I wait for an update or do a Factory Reset?

    factory reset. lollipop will still be on your phone. it works. the fix wont be available for a while because Google has to make one, and it takes time.

    Anyone know how to turn off notification for update. Disable is greyed out in app manager for software update. I'm not taking it (not yet anyway) kit Kat works great for me. Don't need to fix what's not broken.
