First off, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 owners on AT&T have cried out for Android 5.1.1 Lollipop release, now Sprint owners are turning to community pages to vent out ire as to the latest Android Lollipop's software version. Will AT&T and Sprint roll out the update before the much-anticipated Android 6.0 Marshmallow debuts to select devices later this month?

AT&T and Sprint are the only major mobile carriers in the US that have not rolled out the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software version to Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 yet. Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile and US Cellular have already updated their units with the final Lollipop update from last month until last week.

Sprint's last software update happened last August 31. The update brought Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 enhancements and fixes like Samsung Pay, live broadcast via Youtube, high quality audio using Samsung headsets, user interface updates and a bunch of bug fixes. Its current OS Android 5.1 had been released last June 30.

According to various reports, AT&T and Sprint might both be releasing the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update before or shortly after Marshmallow hits phones.

In AT&T's Wireless Forums, some of device owners are eagerly asking the carrier to update their phones while some others are enraged by AT&T's nonchalance.
