The update goofed up my messaging, as well. Phone would no longer receive group texts. I would only receive a download failure message. Switched to Textra and all is well. The update also eliminated the flashlight widget on the Activity Zone screen.

First I was respons... moreMy text (after update this week) would be sent to one person however 2 people would receive it that are not related. It seemed like a "party line" from old days. I would click option to delete recipients but only the first recipient was listed - but the 2nd contact responded as well in the same thread. It happened again next day, and after another big update. AT&T had me delete ALL texts and restart. Supposedly that fixed it. They have no idea why and hadn't heard of the issue per employee.

watto, 19 Nov 2015Sammy what about the note 4 phoneNote 4 has 5.1.1 since september at least.

If you have a carrier ROM just install a country one that is not customized.

Google it, it is easier than it seems and it wont void your warranty.
