    While I can see the logic in that, it's been policy for years now that devices have to be supported & supplied updates for a certain length of time. If memory serves, that's 18 months. The Note 4 is still in that timeframe.

    Oems have to agree to that to use Google apps. (Play store, gmail, etc)

    I'm ok with not getting updates. My issue comes in with that the 5.0 update destroyed this phone. My feelings are if they forced something upon me that "ruined" the device it is only right they fix it.

    Perhaps this is some major oops and AT&T and VZW are merging...... lol

    I think updates should come sooner rather than later, and they should be done correctly. You can always count on waiting forever, and there is always a problem when the updates finally download. Doesn't seem to matter which phone manufacture you have.

    We are not talking software updates are we?

    Because as long as companies like att and Verizon demand locked down devices and decide to control every aspect of an ota vs allowing the OEM to just push it (ie via kies or their website) I'm one who expects updates.

    By the way, where is my marshmallow? Been rocking 6.01 with the buggy WiFi for awhile on my nexus 5 & 6, think it be about time for att to kick out an update for my note 5.

    What I meant was that Verizon feels we should be grateful that we get any updates.
