    Just last night soak test invites starting pushing out to owners of the Motorola Droid Turbo. There's no intel on whether this will be the full blown Android 5.0 Lollipop or just a maintenance/bug fix update. At the very least it is probably a VoLTE add-on for the new flagship Verizon device.

    We will keep you updated as more intel arrives.

    [Update: from initial reports it appears that this is only a VoLTE update and nothing more. We will let you know if anything changes.]

    Thanks for the tip!

    Samsung better get on the gall-dern ball here! I had my Note 4 while people were anticipating the release of this device.

    I want my Lollipops, Sammy!

    So has anyone actually received the update and captured it for the rest of us?

    Very true. Also, FYI, latest news "unofficially" is that it's the VOLTE update which will enable simultaneous voice/data, and NOT Lollipop... Sigh...

    I read elsewhere that the Volte provisioning for the Turbo was loaded into Verizon's system yesterday.

    The only way I now to capture an over the air update is if you are rooted.
    Is there another way ?

    This won't be ota, will it? I thought that soak tests were sent via link... It's been so long since I (may have), participated on one. How else would they be able to push it to just some phones and not all of them? I do know that some get it ota even of they're not in the soak so I may have just answered my own question.

    There are others who could shed light. If it is ota, then you're correct in your assumption.

    It is over the air. They push it to the meid of your phone so they can push it to select phones. That's probably why a few get it inadvertently, wrong meid Putin by a number or two.
