Verizon needs to approve the 5.1.1 update. Sprint's Note 4 users have had it for almost a month. (Rumors are, by the way, that their update makes their phone feel like new.)
My biggest issue is lagging (especially the Recents menu). I've factory reset and that doesn't fix it. I'm afraid only the 5.1.1 update will fix that.
Thanks for the Twitter handle, but your responses there aren't any better.
The carriers don't write the code for OS updates but in many cases they push it out to your phone - usually in waves (be patient though I know that's hard to do :-). In some cases, it can be downloaded directly from the manufacturer. Depends on the device, specifics and manufacturer.
