Update #2: Marshmallow updates for Galaxy flagships delayed again on Telus, this time indefinitely
Update, March 22: Telus has updated its timeline again and the news is pretty bad: instead of setting a new target date, the updates for Samsung devices are now simply marked as “Delayed.”
Update, March 15: Telus has announced even more delays for the Marshmallow update on the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5. The Telus Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5 will now get Android 6.0 on March 16. Hopefully. The Galaxy S6 Edge is slated – tentatively – for March 30 and the date to circle on your calendar for the regular Galaxy S6 is April 16. But, you know, don’t get your hopes up…
Original post, March 5: Have you been hoping to get that sweet Marshmallow update for your Samsung device on Telus? If you are sporting one of the newer handsets from the Korean manufacturer, chances are you have already seen a time table the carrier released a couple weeks ago. There was plenty in there to be happy about, but it seems celebrations will have to be pushed back a little for certain smarpthones.

Instead of getting Android Marshmallow on March 9th, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5 will get the special treat on March 13th. Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge users will have to wait until March 30th, as opposed to getting the OTA update on the 16th.
By the way, Samsung Galaxy S6 users are also getting this update, and the date hasn’t been pushed back. You will still have to wait longer, though, as that update is scheduled for April 13th.
Bummed? Well, at least you won’t have to wait around too long… hopefully. No reasons for the delays were specified,
