The first firmware update to my Samsung 6 wiped the phone clean. That was real shock since I lost all my photos, apps, etc and had to do a complete new setup.

  1. I also so pissed

They have took away the option to disable auto updates to firmware. Another act of their need to control this stupid phone.

It appears the Samsung and Google in their infinite wisdom have removed that option from the Galaxy S6. So incredibly pissed right now...
