Cool thanks for the link. Wow that's unbelievable that there's still a bug in it after us not receiving the update for like 2 months after everyone else in North America received it, I really hope Koodo offers at least one of the new Nexus devices coming at the end of the month because I'm done with Samsung strictly due to their terrible update schedule in Canada now days it's complete bullish.

But it looks like this update is the latest one that includes some of the features from the S6 Edge+, such as Edge screen apps and maybe live broadcasting too. I guess they skipped a few updates (5.1, 5.1.1, post 5.1.1, and then this one) and waited for the final version, that's why it took longer.

Yeah if it's that update its not so bad but still Marshmallow is coming at the end of the month and our S6 / S6 Edge won't see it for a good 6 months still which really Sucks.

Where did you purchase yours because actual carrier unlocked models should have received it months ago. Yours must be a carrier locked model that was just unlocked by the seller. It doesn't matter what carrier you use a device on it will get updates dependent on where it was originally purchased from.

It was from Alberta on Ebay. The interesting thing is when I put my koodo sim on, the phone got rebooted and automatically installed the koodo app. Same as my friend's Rogers' S6 edge, when he put the koodo sim on his phone, the phone rebooted itself and wiped everything (all the rogers bloatware got wiped automatically) and the koodo app was installed automatically. So I was just thinking maybe it's the new thing samsung did, when you switch to a new carrier your device will be bound to the new carrier you are using. I'll wait for my friend's reply and see if his phone is getting it today as well, since Roger halted their update.

Yeah he should get it on Rogers or any carrier in Canada as Samsung seems to push to all carriers in Canada at the same time or have for their flagship's for the last few years now (Galaxy S & Galaxy Note models)

Would have seemed to have possibly went to Rogers first because they were selling them as a preorder so those ppl would have been the first to activate theirs in Canada and would have been in the first bunch of sku's sold in Canada.

Seems like the App Edge app is buggy to me, it keeps disappearing from the screen.
