    We know many of our members are on Verizon and several of you own the awesome Samsung Galaxy Note 4, so these folks might be delighted by this news. Verizon just announced that the rollout of Android 5 Lollipop for that device will start today.

    Big Red didn't make it clear which version of Android 5.x this is, but it is build number build VRU1BOAF. Besides the usual "stuff" you find with Lollipop, this update also adds the following:
    • Notification interaction on the lock screen
    • Smart Lock
    • Do Not Disturb mode (removing Blocking Mode)
    • Floating action buttons in apps (including in Messaging and Calendar apps)
    • New S Health widgets
    • Slow motion and fast motion camera modes
    • VoLTE/Advanced Calling 1.0
    The update starts rolling out today, but as usual, it will move in waves, so if you don't see it immediately, just sit tight for a few days.

    Here's the Verizon link with the details: VZW

    Probably a slow controlled roll out. In case a bug is discovered. They don't want another thunderbolt issue.

    Nope. But let me know if you succeed that way. I thought about it, but it's not worth the effort to me at this point in the week unless someone else has success. Haha

    Doesn't Verizon usually start at oh dark thirty the first day then pick up the pace after that?
