Being a tad bit factious there, although they have the absolute best coverage map in the USA, and after 25 years with them, why get in a hurry and change ships now? Now, to my point: My wife's S5 is still on 4.4.4 and is not rooted. I have macros that toggle both DATA and WiFi 'OFF' when the phone goes to sleep, and when the phone wakes up. That means, that for all practicable purposes, it is impossible for any system updates to occur. Well, to my surprise today, she got a phone call and I answer her phone. When that call hung up, I was greeted with the screen to apply the 5.1 update huh? how in hell did that get on there? this phone has not seen the internet since it was born... well for a few minutes it did until Candy Crush could get loaded up... and then it went to sleep.... a toy only for her. but hey, it is her device, and all she wants is Candy Crush and to receive a phone call from our kids. So........... here I am pondering: How in the Hell did Verizon manage to push that update onto her phone? I am thinking they have figured out a way to toggle WiFi on when the phone is asleep via SMS or something.... for now, all is safe again. Powered it OFF. Volume Up, Home Key pressed, Power ON. Clear Cache Partition. problem solved, no more update flags.... for now anyway.
