    Bought my phone from T-Mobile back in December then slapped a Verizon SIM in it. No problems ever since. Still on 5.0.1. Normal for it to take this long to still not get pushed the 5.1 OTA? Anyone else still waiting?

    I suspect you have Verizon to thank for that.
    They treat a device that was not purchased from them differently.
    See this article below - while it doesn't talk about OTAs, I would not be surprised if that's what's causing the delay
    http://www.androidpolice.com/2015/0...te-one-that-wasnt-purchased-from-the-carrier/

    You could just flash the "E" build - but that'll require you to unlock your bootloader (data loss). As of now, I don't think the OTA file is available to take you from 5.0.1 to 5.1

    So does that mean I will not get the 5.1 OTA pushed to me? Or I will and Verizon is just taking their time.

    Sorry - wish I knew. This is just a guess based on how Verizon has treated Nexus devices in the past, and the current state of Nexus 6 (not purchased directly from Verizon) on Verizon.

    fi is super in my world.

    i was already a sprint customer (since 1998) so im technically still on the network and thus far the transition was seamless. i missed wifi calling when i had the htc one max but now thats back. cool points.

    free tethering with no need to root or other hocus focus is also a plus. t-mo is nice here in la and i now get LTE inside some building that i had was unable to prior (maybe t-mo?)

    was using hangouts for months so that was a no brainer.

    on the phone, i average less than a gig a month so this plan works for me perfectly.

    I am in suburban Dallas with a Nexus 6 running stock Lollipop with Nova launcher on Sprint. The 5.1.1 update arrived automagically today via OTA. It downloaded and installed without any problems.

    Can anyone confirm my suspicion and perhaps shove me in the right direction? I unlocked my N6 to manually install the factory images for 5.1, does this mean (since it's still unlocked - but not rooted) that I will no longer get the OTA's?

    If so, what's the process for re-locking it so that I can?

    No, you can be unlocked and still get the OTA. I got the notification for 5.1.1 and i am unlocked and rooted with a custom recovery. Of course it wouldn't intall. But if you're completely stock and just unlocked, you're good

    Well good deal. I had heard it as going out to ATT N6 owners and I hadn't seen it. Been a crazy 10 days for me so I figured with my luck I'd $crewed myself out of the rotation. :D

    Thanks lunatic - one of these days I hope to loose the training wheels and not rely on you so much.

    I'm lovin' it. Phone has been running great, and I love Wi-Fi calling. Battery life seems well improved, but I can't tell if that's because I'm on Wi-Fi all day now when calling, or if there was actually better power optimization in software.
