Have you tried taking the sim card out and then updating? This is weird. Makes no sense why it would say that the update failed.

Factory reset is best option. try it a second time if you have not. You should call Verizon for replacement device.

If you are daring and have a couple hours to download install android syste developer kit & to learn how to sideload the update, http://www.droid-life.com/2016/11/07/novembers-android-security-update-rolling-factory-images-ota-fi...   That will get you next version.

Reboot your wifi?  BTW, did you get the  32 or 128gb?  58+gb is a pretty hefty update size for the brand new system....isn't it?

So you has a s7 edge? I traded in a s7 edge for the xl 128. I still have one but I'm not a fan of touch wiz , matter of fact I hate it. I loved htc but everyone I have talked to loves this phone. I like my edge but the battery isn't what they say it is and the camera isn't either . sometimes it takes awesome pictures and other times my m8 looks better.. so what do you think.
