Samsung S5 software update

I did not ask for this and I do not want it.  How do I shut off the nag screen permanently?

The last update changed settings gave me new icons and did things that in general were not a benefit to me.

I had to pay for the phone, I have to pay for the service I am not getting this update shoved down my throat!

Since the upgrade in Tucson my home phone service SUCKS and not much better with the network extender provided by Verizon.

I stated during the HOURS of time invested  to get the phone to work, I do not need much of a push to leave.

Provide clear instructions for a stock Galaxy S5 to stop the harassment/updates from Verizon/Samsung.  The past updates have NEVER been a benefit for me. If you want to upgrade this marginal piece of tech then start paying me monthly.

Software Updates are mandatory and you can delay them for a short period of time. There is no way to go back to a previous software without rooting your phone which I nor anyone else will tell you here since it is in violation of the Plazos ​And​Conditions.

The update being pushed is a security update. There are no changes beyond that. My Note 4 received the same thing a few days ago, and it has exhibited no problems.

The Galaxy S5 is a two year old device at this point, and will stop receiving these updates soon enough. Most Android phones do not receive updates beyond two years of lifetime.

While updates can be a pain, they also keep the phone functioning properly. Many apps won't work on the S4 because it's outdated, I'm sure those few folks wouldn't mind a software update.

The update that changed your icons was the big update, software updates forward will simply be fixes. I plan to get many more months out of my S5, but am not holding my breath on it being relevant to the time for that much longer.

I'm sorry. I'm pretty deaf when I have to talk through a text only forum. As someone who works in the IT industry, I have to understand the balance between not installing updates and the risks they come with, and installing updates but understanding the changes they make. I hate what the software industry does when design takes preference over functional software, but there's nothing I can do about it besides contribute to the free and open source software community that helps to develop Android. It's scary to know that people won't install my code that helps to stop a malicious actor from stealing one's photos or credit card info, over a designer's choice.

If you want another Internet outage like on Friday, which was caused by un-updated and poorly secured devices including cell phones, be my guest. I've heard you. It keeps me employed defending networks against stuff like that.

I to have worked in IT and have seen the disastrous effect  of a code writers "good idea". There is not a reason in the world that an update needs to change icons, settings and in general undo what the owner has set..This happened the last update to me.  You have no idea of how my phone is used and are speaking completely out of hand.  If the update is so benign then why is the up date just shoved at the public with out,  an hey dude this is what we are doing and why. That is because they THINK they know better than the user. Which might be true in a lot of cases. NOT MINE I have drawn a line in the sand and I am not crossing it. I have a computer that I use every day that MS has stopped supporting. I have not had a problem that I could not trace and fix in the last 5 years.  I am not going to lie down and take unwanted and for all I know unneeded updates for features I do not even use. I see no reason to follow the sheep to the edge of the cliff.  Early in my career I screwed up and learned DOS, I use the command prompt almost every day. I do not have the inclination to learn the innards of a cell phone. because that what it is to me a phone. I do not use 10% of the power of the S5. I like the big screen because of my bifocals.

I did not experience an internet outage. First I have heard of it.
