I sent a tweet out to Telus Support and was referred to the update schedule, "as soon as we find out, we'll update our update schedule" So I guess we will just have to patiently wait for it.

It is anything, it is the only ones that we did not update the update, the others have since 2 days now!

It's a joke to waiting 1 week after all poeple to receive the same built...

Yes. An extra week wait for a buggy Samsung release is unacceptable.

The Update for Galaxy S6 Version 7.0 (Nougat) is now launched!

I see that too.  I was under the impression from TheRamsez that the OTA was now live when he said it was "launched"

I guess I have to wait 4 more days for Nougat on my Samsing S6

10-4 Me too, waiting quite awhile for Nougat, hope it doesn't disappoint.

Just checked after reading your post, It is available OTA as of this morning for me. It is also showing on the Samsung Live updates page. Just backing up before I update.

Downloading what I assume is the Nougat update now for the S6. 1195.68 MB...pretty big!

My update for my s7 edge was 1245MB seemed a little large but installed fine but the only issue i have is i still lose wifi connection and drop calls(CARRIER ISSUE) And battery drains a little faster than i am used to but overall a decent revamp of android software

Be careful what you wish for!

 

The rollout of any update occurs in waves. Not everyone get an automated update at the same time. At times you can force the issue in the settings application of your phone.

@seriouslypeople You are still on 5.0.2?  Is your phone unlocked or rooted?  If your phone is not unlocked or is unlocked and on the Carrier you purchased it with, and not rooted you should have no issues getting the update.

But you obviously didn't get Marshmallow either, if you are still on 5.0.2.  So there is something going on if you are not getting OTA updates.

Not Exactly true mhinc.You will receive the update even if your phone is unlock with the same or on an other carrier (it is my case and I have received all updates untill now). Even if you are rooted, your phone will received the update but the installation will fail (my case in another life).
