Re: Samsung Galaxy S5 marshmallow update

Got my update OTA early this morning, 0300 EST.  So far, looks nice, not sure what other functions it has, or how to use them.  I haven't rceived any SD card notifications, don't know what that is.

Likely your 16gb phone is full. Sell the phone, get an S7, migrate, and try the local Rogers or go get for help at obe of the other "Ontario Cellular Providors" for free tech support to switch and save the cost of the phone.

What is OTA?
Smart Switch was of no use.

Hello @murraygto

OTA means Over The Air updates. They automatically come to ur phone and u just update. Smart Switch is the only way I believe it will come.

Thank you.  Automatic should have happened; it didn't. .

I pressed on one of the buttons on the software update page in Settings l info  and presto.  I was able to get the download.

Hello @murraygto

Yes Rogers did state you may and may not get it over the air and have to check it manually or via SmartSwitch on your computer.

Let's us know how u like the update!

Re: Samsung Galaxy S5 marshmallow update

Fact is that the update needs almost a gig of free space on the phone memory. 

I suppose there is no way to use the 64GB SD card I have installed?

It is not going to be easy to find that much free memory on the phone.

I have already moved every app, that can be moved, to the SD card memory.
I went through every folder on the phone memory looking for pictures or music I can move.
I cleared all the browser data.

I even deleted a few apps that I will need to reinstall after.

Skype and Google maps are huuuge.
