I'm sorry, I don't know how to search to see if this problem has already been posted. Not sure if the problem is the last update. I have a Samsung S6. About a week ago my phone stopped charging on the Samsung wireless charging pad. (it works when connected to the cord) I thought it might be the pad (only had 1 year) but tried on a friends pad and won't charge either. Any ideas? Thanks!
I also had the heat/battery drain issue after the last update. The Verizon dude fixed it as soon as I walked into the door. The fix is...
Settings/More Networks/Mobile Networks/Network Mode. The Samsung update changed this value to Global Mode. Change it back to LTE/CDMA.

I had this issue last month, workaround was to leave wifi switched on permanently (not ideal). Issue was still there after a factory reset, and resolved itself "randomly" before the update I recieved the other day. Was very frustrating!
I recently got a message to update my phone so I agreed to update. Now my phone does not receive or make calls. This is due to a message no aim card. I am very annoyed. Someone help me please !@@

I am taking it to the Samsung Centre next week.
Please will you let me know if and how you managed to fix your phone?
The updates are very big usually over 600 Meg. Simple to avoid. Just make sure that on the phone memory (NOT the add in SD) that you only have 300 Meg of space available. Copy a bunch of movies via the cable, or duplicate one movie to take up space. Simple cure.
My S5 has done a push update...without me asking. Since then phone will not start but goes into an Android Update screen for 8 mins. Also screen running really hot and had the screen blacking out so I could not use it. Really disappointed.....loved the phone till now. Also did this while I was out walking on holidays and needed Google maps to get home. Ended up taking me 4 hours and lots of wrong turns. Not happy.

Very long pause that caller believes nobody is there. They tell me to do a factory reset but I don't want to lose everything.
Anyone experiencing there Wi-fi button flickering on and off continuously causing the battery to drain in about 1 hour after the update? Any tips on how to possibly fix it?
Bought this sumsung S5 there is 3 issues I found. Shutting down itself exit itself to home and its always show that check back cover for protection that's not nacessary. And replace it to another one but still issues.it's say the phone has stopped but I pushed ok and nothing happens I have calls that I want to answers it but I go nowhere, next issue is I pulled to go down to read last messages and just stucked there and shevering. 😑

What was the fix???? I read through all of this and didn't see it?? Did I mids something???
My galaxy S5 updated and now I can't turn my volume up or down or change the brightness when the phone is locked like before. And I can't figure it out for the life of me, someone know how?

After a push update...that I couldn't stop...my phone went black. I tried everything through ATT and Samsung and nothing worked. I finally had to do a factory reset. I lost everything. Mine was 1 week out of warranty.
After updating, I could only listen/talk on speaker. I took my phone into T-Mobile, they said it was unlikely an update could have caused this, did a factory reset to no avail and and told me the phone was broken. Tried very hard to sell me a new one (I have 1 payment left!) Thank goodness I found this site! I followed the directions and my phone works again. Thank you for posting the fix!
