nougat problems without ougat

I have *not* updated to nougat because of all the problems. I'm on 6.0.1 marshmallow. But im having many similar problems as those who accepted the install.  all of my issues started 2-3 months ago Before Noigat was pushed: excessive battery drain, audio OS using very large chunks of data, voice mail stopping when I hold phone to my ear, no one can hear me, when I make a call with no headset the party on the other end can hear me fine and my wifi has gone wonky - constantly dis connecting and reconnecting. 

I don't plan on upgrading to Nougat until the problem are fixed.  but, i anyone having the same proplems? With nougat. Can anyone confirm that a patch is forthcoming?

I think they are

I'll bet you will get no help from VZW customer support.  They will say your problems are because you haven't installed Nougat.  I haven't installed it either, but luckily, haven't had the problems you have had with Marshmellow.

Good luck!
