    I'm at a point I don't expect anything from anyone or anything. I appreciate what I do have and get.

    I feel Samsung does a fair enough job keeping devices up to date. My gripe is when the carriers get ahold and add to it... On my last FDR AT&T had added 5 games in total... 2 of which actually downloaded and installed 30 hours later without warning or permission.

    Might be time to bypass the carriers.

    The game downloads used to be allowed by a system app called DT Ignite... however that's not the case now...

    you really have to watch what you install these days because you never know what may install with it.

    Our past few phones we skipped carrier and bought unlocked phones. No bloatware and very timely updates. The carrier apps that we wanted, we installed from play store.

    I've been curious how this works.... I've always worried about service and carrier specific features like advanced messaging.....

    I keep saying that too but the monthly interest free payments come in handy through the carriers. but then most likely that is why they do it.

    I know... since my S5 when we did that it was such a good deal... Why take my money out of savings and lose the interest when I can use their money for free.
