When will Verizon release 5.1.1 for the Galaxy S5

Since it is known that Android 5.1.1 resolves the poor battery life and the bluetooth connectivity issues, when will Verizon release it for the Galaxy S5?

I'd like to know this as well.  I read earlier today that 5.1.1 is being released for an older motorola phone.  Almost every other carrier has released 5.1.1 for their variant of the S5.  Once again Verizon is late to the party and is angering their long time customers.

Radar320,


Getting the latest update is nice treat for your phone. Updates are pushed out after they have been thoroughly tested from Verizon. We would hate for you to get an update and additional issues occur. You can sign up for notification for when the latest updates are available via the http://vz.to/1M7Y7bW website.

Well your testing failed then with every form of 5.0 that you have pushed out.  Just look at all the issues posted in this forum and across other forums as well.

It's a nice treat?

This update fixes a VERY serious security leak, namely StageFright. That isn't a treat it's a necessity.

VZW really needs to stop responding with marketing and pacifying statements. 

Say it has to test is enough.  But they need a better testing strategy including removal of so much bloatware.

Really Disappointed in Verizon not updating phone yet.

Where is my S 5 update.  I still think someone at Verizon knows something and they won't tell us.
