T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge to receive OTA update out of the box
Let's look into the future. Its April 10th and you just picked up your T-Mobile branded Samsung Galaxy S6 or Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Hands trembling with anticipation, you turn on the phone and...are immediately hit with an OTA update. Weighing in at 179MB, the update offers stability and performance improvements, new and enhanced features, and bug fixes according to the rather bland changelist. The new build number will be UVU1AOCG.

T-Mobile and Samsung are updating the phone the first time it is turned on as a way to prevent issues from popping up right out of the box. So while you might be mildly annoyed that you won't be able to use your pricey new handset for a few minutes while the updating process takes place, keep in mind that the update is making your phone run better.

So far, the update appears limited to T-Mobile's version of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. Pre-orders are being accepted for both devices with the Galaxy S6 priced at $679.92 (32GB), $759.99 (64GB), and $859.99 (128GB). Well-qualified subscribers can buy the 32GB version for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $28.33. The 64 and 128GB models can be purchased for 24 monthly installments of $27.50 after a $99.99 down payment is made for the 64GB model and a $199.99 upfront payment is made for the 128GB model.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge will cost you $779.76, $859.83 and $959.83 for the 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variants, respectively. The 32GB Galaxy S6 edge is priced at $0 down for well-qualified buyers, with 24 monthly installments of $32.49. The 64GB model is $99.99 with 24 monthly installments of $31.66. The 128GB version of the Galaxy S6 edge will cost you $199.99 upfront with 24 monthly payments of $31.66.
