Update of Note 4 to Marshmellow OS 6 has wiped all contacts, unable to get anything from Verizon Cloud 3 days on phone with Verizon customer service no help.

No contacts no prior call on phone records either

. Out of business now for a week.

OS6 damaged several apps that are also now not working.

IBale, Let's get this resolved once and for all so you can get back to work. I certainly apologize for your experience. What happens when you attempt to recover your contacts via Verizon Cloud? Do you see your contacts in Verizon Cloud (via application or online http://vz.to/1AqGCO4)? What happens when the application stops working and are you receiving an error message? Please share. Thank you.

When did 6.0 spool to non-beta Note 4 Verizon subscribers?

Did you load a rooted Rom?

The update downloaded on my note 4 on Sunday night 2/21, y Monday morn all my contacts were wiped. The VZ cloud had my contacts and call ID info but it would not download to my phone, in fact the phone wiped the battery trying all day Monday, by Tuesday I called VZ and after 4 + hrs no one was able to help, all making me go thru nonsensical steps to get nowhere, all while on the road and no contacts available.

On Wed 2/24 again the same 4 different cust. service reps all about 5 hours time wasted no contacts, Thursday the same, Friday after 3 hours more, I was told to go to Best Buy 17 miles away to have phone flashed to 5.1.1 Best Buy said we can not flash phone here that way.

Finally today after 3 hours more again no contacts, finally Billie a cust serv. was able to help, contacts are loading very slowly, no work getting done for a week. Was given a $25.00 credit on our business account for my week of trouble.

Will wait out my contract and move on to other wireless.

Many apps are frozen, phone works but several business apps like sanpbizcard which could have gotten me by also froze. The VZ cloud had my contacts visible even on a laptop, but they and other data would not download back to the phone.In fact to the embarrassment of VZ I was even asked if I had my contacts on google to get them from there, and that did not help. Downloading on the laptop as a vcs file from the cloud and emailing to phone to bring into contacts also did not help.

VZ gave us a $25.00 credit for my trouble all week lost to this mess.

Now downloading via wireless, yes I have an account with VZ so long I still have free wireless service lol. Not worth the aggravation and grief and lost productivity. Learn from this VZ, your commercial accounts such as we are will migrate elsewhere where the service is better, than sending me to a Best Buy to flash the phone.

Hi there IBale,


I certainly regret to hear that you have had such trouble with your contacts, and truly would be saddened to see you go elsewhere. I am glad to hear that your contacts were being recovered. Have they recovered since, or are they still in the process of recovering?

My point exactly.

It's either a custom ROM, or he's lying.
