Re: Can I prevent Lollipop from auto-updating on my Motorola Droid Turbo

Your experience is typical of mine and the majority of forum responders. After so much angst about L 5.0 on other phones, we waited a few days to see if L 5.1 on Turbo was worth the wait. Bottom line it was for most, a positive stable upgrade, and we dove into the pool. No problem with being cautious or pragmatic, its the people that are so pessimistic about moving forward that get me down. Enjoy your new phone.

Thanks! I am enjoying it and so far 5.1 seems to be running just fine of my phone.

Re: Can I prevent Lollipop from auto-updating on my Motorola Droid Turbo

I cannot stand Lollipop, so I returned my phone to Motorola and received one that has KitKat on it. If I can turn off auto-updating of the OS, I will be good to go. I do not want to root the phone as that will mess up my warranty and insurance. If I cannot avoid Lollipop, I will get an Iphone or go back to a flip phone. Lollipop is the worst user interface ever. It is like the "New Coke". You cannot turn the phone to silent with the VOLUME button, how counterintuitive is that!? Also I don't want to see every update on the locked screen, the little pictures are fine. However with Lollipop, it is all the alerts or none at all. Thanks for listening, please help me.

Um, I have no problem silencing my phone from the volume button. Maybe u should look into lollipop more. It's definitely better than kit kat

I think he means this, or at least this is my issue:

KitKat you could rock the volume up all the way to max, and then go back down to the lowest volume of sound, then vibrate, then silent.

Lollipop, to go silent, you have to hit the volume rocker and then choose silent and choose either a time or indefinitely. It is an unnecessary extra step, a fixing of what wasn't broke that needs to be undone. (Such as Microsoft removing the start menu in Win8 then bringing it back for Win10.)

I have adapted and accepted the change, but it doesn't mean I have to like it. I wish it would go back in a future update.

No, you just have to hit the volume rocker then touch the bell on the left or touch the lowest point on the volume slider and the phone goes to vibrate. The priority setting is an option but you don't have to use it to silence the phone.

Well actually you don't have to choose a time, it will re-use the previous choice which for me is always "Indefinitely". So not a huge deal.

I liked KitKat and was hardly eager to upgrade, but I find Lollipop is working well and not forcing my routines to change much. I don't care for some of the appearance changes, but once I set the keyboard back to "holo white" (which is still there) I'm good to go.

Every time it starts downloading, I long click the notification until it says "app info", click that, and force close/stop it. I don't know how long it will work, but I have lollipop on my nexus 7 and I hate it. Why a bright colored menu? Yuck.

Does anyone know the purpose of the two step process for silencing the 5.0 device? Its on my tablet and I have to admit, I like the old way to just push vol down til silent...

Re: Can I prevent Lollipop from auto-updating on my Motorola Droid Turbo

It doesn't matter because OTA updates don't count towards used data for your plan. Some people have very small 250MB data plans, so one update would do that in.
Nope, that's not right. It used up my mum's data completely for OTA and I got a Huge bill for it. Hence my roaming around trying to find a way to turn updated off.
