hello all i would just like to chime in with the Pr1.2 issue, Rogers please make approve these updates faster
thank you rogers!!!
at the end of of may we will get our pr 1.1 and the whole world would get symbian anna!!!
rogers is the best!!!
Thank you Jean.
Sarcastic remark aside, I'm sure we're all grateful to be receiving these updates at all.
Please note, however, that the PR2.0 update will be released by Nokia some time this summer and with it will come many much needed improvements. Hence, this update may be more important than PR1.1 - I just hope you guys can keep that in mind.
I absolutely LOVE the N8 hardware. However, I have been using android with swype for a couple of years now and I must say that the Symbian ^3 OS ver PR 1.2 is lacking in some essentials that are deal breakers for me. I take my N8 out every few weeks and slam my SIM in, charge it up and pray to the phone gods that Pr 2.0 will show up as an available update, then sadly and with a deep sigh of regret turn it off and put the sim back in my android. As has been mentioned on these forums many times, the lack of portrait qwerty / swype keyboard and the hopeless built in browser are two of the more disasterous problems that we know have been fixed in the PR 2.0 release.
Rogers, please release the update as soon as you can!! Waiting a year for it is totally unacceptable!! And if the one old guy down in the basement who is your compatibility tester needs a hand, I am sure there are hundreds of willing test / verification subjects all accross the Rogers world. I know I would have no trouble being a beta tester for the rogers / NAM release of PR 2.0
The thing is, Rogers has been doing this for years. The N95 and the LG Eve are just a couple I can think of. Great handsets that are handicapped because rogers takes waaaay to long to release an update, or doesnt release it at all. Geez. What is the point in having all these fancy smart devices if you are not going to keep them up to date? It's very frustrating from a consumer point of view.
Well pr 1.1 is on the street now so that is a plus. One step closer to Anna. What is WP7 NoDo update?
Please Rogers start working on the ANNA now. I agree with the other posters about the time. I HAD the N95, and the N86 and now the N8. All of them great phones. But why get these super cool phones with great capabilities if I can't ever use them and they get buggy after a bit with no real updates. See the other phones out there are good and all. And I've had samsung and sony in the past but I love me some Nokia so help us out!
Please Please put out Anna soon.
This is complete b.s. You're the most expensive provider in Canada, yet you have the worst customer service. Im sure it doesnt take that long to approve an update. Symbian 3 is **bleep**, and the least you can do is provide us with updates to make our daily experiences a little more manageable. Get with the program, its 2011. I cant wait for a service provider with some ethics to tear you guys a new one. Its the fact that you cant suffice your customers with the 'small things' like firmware updates. I love my phone, but having it current would be fantastic.
I am totaly with you guys. This is outrageous. A company like rogers should be providing updates as soon as they are available, not wait a year to 2 for such an important updates.
Hello everyone. Thanks for your lively chat on the topic so far. This thread is getting a little off-topic. Could we please bring the discussion back to the operating system and hardware? Thanks!
