As far as I know, it is Google that updates the device, Gary. Hang in tight, they started to roll it out today but as always, they don't want to hog their network and won't update them all at once!

Thanks Sophia, I am trying to be patient but it is now 3 more days and still no update. Manual loading the factory image is not appealing to me :-)

It has nothing to do with your cell service provide. Google rolls the update out in batches over a period of 2 -3 weeks while watching for any problems.
Patience, it will come or as suggested, do the update yourself.

It shouldn't have anything to do with your Carrier but apparently it may. Refer to https://support.google.com/playeditio... where Google has added the following text recently: "Based on your carrier, it may take longer than two weeks after release to get an update."

This is very annoying.
I still have not gotten the update and my phone can only call out and receive calls and texts in. I can't search the net or text anyone. So not happy with this, feels like I am paying for a useless piece of technology.

You can manually download it. Just go to YouTube and check out android authorities video on the process of how to get it installed. Anyone can get it now without waiting any longer

But will that affect further updates?

If your mobile language is set on french-canadian, and Lollipop is installed, it will do a HUGE glitch when it's plugged in to a charger. Google has acknowledged it and a fix will be out soon (i hope!)

Koodo sent me a replacement phone which updated automatically but my original Nexxus 5 is still not getting the update. How can I get it because I need to return the replacement phone.

You can flash the firmware on it... But keep in mind that you also need to backup your phone on your computer. Using the official factory images, you can follow the instructions at this official site, https://developers.google.com/android... find the firmware for your device, you'll also find old firmware, follow the instructions on the site,then you can fix it yourself... If it doesn't work, you can also go back to your older firmware :)

Koodo and Google just released it for the Nexus 5. You "Should" have it by the 25th.
