Thank you Andrew for posting something for us. IT shows somewhat that Rogers does care BUT please do not forget us & let us know when you know anything please. IT would be really nice if you do that. Thanks again 🙂

Hmm?!! At least we now know that they know people are anxious for ICS!!!!! Too bad he didn't drop a tidbit about the ETA. Maybe he doesn't know either... That's not a good signSmiley Sad

I'm quite certain, that I'm not alone in being remotely satisfied with rogers response! There is no way that rogers is not capable of providing some kind of time line! Sure the consumer is anxious, but for a Telecom company to expect anyone with half a brain, to accept that they have no clue, is beyond ridiculous! There's a good chance that most of the people commenting are Share Holders, & I can't imagine that a Board meeting would go over very well, if a simple question about the business that they are in, could not be answered! We're not asking about the price of tea in China!! :-[

Well his is not the LTE version remember that. Anyways i hope Rogers does actually wake up & release it. Telus seems to start showing customers respect & show they care.. I wonder if Rogers will maybe start showing the updates as well.

Well to add my two cents since I'm anxious about the update. I should of got the Nexus but instead I couldn't wait and got the SGIi LTE. As you know the SGIII is suppose to come out sometime soon. I believe they don't want people to get the update until that phone is released. I feel they want to get the sales of the phone up there until that happens then they'll release the update, hope I'm wrong.

Hardware wise the GSll LTE is better than the Nexus, o/s wise the Nexus is better. So nothing is stopping you from rooting your Sll and flashing an ICS rom.... As for the GSlll, you MIGHT see it the end of Summer.... Might.. I'm sure that rogers will have rolled out the ICS update for the sgh - i727r long before then ^_^

You can pre-order the S3 unlocked and have it working in June. No contracts and other b/s. As far as the Nexus...at least it will run 5.0 sooner than the S3.

IT will run it but the problem is that if Google / Samsung is taking so long to release 4.0.3 or even 4.0.4 to the galaxy Nexus its pretty simple that Google & samsung will take a long time to release the 5.0 update to the Galaxy Nexus. Hopefully it can run it without lagging or any other issues.

You can pre order the S3 at Expansys if you like. I already put my pre order threw & waiting.

That's the international version. I assume it will be bloatware free. But will it work on any carrier in Canada on 3G and 4G?

When I contacted them, they told me it will work with Rogers. I asked them before i even pre ordered it.

You sure you don't mean 4.0.4?

 

in either case, I wonder what baseband they will throw in there.

My Telus Nexus is on 4.0.2 I think he definately meant 4.0.4

Also i just contacted Samsung Canada & spoke to a Manager & they told me they have no info on when they will release the update for the Galaxy Nexus.

Also one more thing. The update will be 4.0.4 or later. Nothing under that.
