    I have gone to a verizon corporate store & was told by their techs. that they couldn’t offer the free up-grade. Every time I try the Samsung & Verizon sites to down load the up-grade all I get is an error msg. box pop up. Why isn’t this free device up-grade being offered as an over the air down load. It sounds as though this 6.1 free patched up-grade may resolve issues I have w/t memory or would if I could actually get it down-loaded. Wish I had held onto my XV6800. I have gone thru the line up of Smart Phone Devices & each have issues, this has a possible free correction patch if only I could get it down-loaded.
