Samsung deals with the updates not Verizon.
Samsung has yet to announce plans on which devices will see the update, but we fully expect most (if not all) of its 2014 portfolio to be updated and quite possibly the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3. The question is when will these devices get updated? Samsung has had a poor track record with delivering timely updates in the past.
We may see Lollipop in February or March 2015
After Samsung release Lollipop Verizon will test for few months befour they release to OTA. That Sucks!
Yeah Verizon should just release it as soon as they get it. That way when the inevitable bugs pop up the same people complaining about Verizon needing to hurry up will complain about how Verizon should have tested it.
It comes when it comes. Fortunately with every update I've had I've been one of the lucky one's that hasn't had any problems with either update from the past. Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself. Lol
