Just received the update on my Note 5 and it seems to be running without any problems. Also seems a little quicker.

I just got the update. Was a little laggy at first but then smoothed out. However, the charging is taking much longer (30 min. left at 80% on Fast Charge). The phone also restarts itself every ~5 min. Any suggestions?

i got a SW update notification last night and i did the update. The software (SW) got downloaded and ever since that, its been just showing AT&T symbol and i was thinking that its trying to instal the update. Its been 6 hours that my devie has been in the same mode. Please suggest.

Connecting to WIFI leads to message about additional log in required and asks me to open my web browser. I do this, which causes Chrome to open to the Google home page. I'm not asked to do anything, but the device seems to connect. A few minutes later, WIFI drops and the process starts over again.

My update to Marshmallow ran overnight and now my phone will not connect to WI-FI. Is there a resolution to this issue? My internet and social media apps run fine over the 4G signal, but when none of it works on my home WI-FI. I have strong WI-FI signal and have rebooted everything twice, including deleting my home WI-FI from my phone and reconnecting it. Nothing has worked yet. Tech support response would be helpful.

My phone just decided to update and turned off while I was using it. You could at least have included code in the update to start the first time it was plugged in and idle after the device-initiated update was triggered. I'm just glad I wasn't in the middle of nowhere with my GPS abruptly switched off.

AT&T Video Calling is a pretty great feature that was included with the Marshmallow update on some of the Android devices.
Video Call is built into select Video Call-capable devices and requires an account that has been set up for AT&T HD Voice. Both parties must also be in HD Voice coverage to use Video Call.
Possible reasons you can't make a Video Call even though your phone is Video Call capable:
Current Video Call restrictions
To make and receive an AT&T Video Call:
Video Call is turned on by default. When Video Call is off, incoming Video Calls will appear as voice calls.
Hope this helps and gets you back to enjoying your Note 5 device! Thank you for being a part of the AT&T Family!
