.....You guys are wasting your time everytime you attempt to ask a Rogers rep when an update is going to be released for a phone.....
You might be right, however sometimes it is important to be the squeeky wheel.
Telus has just released there update today. http://mobilesyrup.com/2011/08/19/telus-samsung-galaxy-s-fascinate-3g-upgrade-to-os-2-3-3-now-availa...
I just posted @RogersBuzz and @SamsungMobileCA twitter maybe if we all spam them with the same question we'll finally get a response!
So, if Bell got their GB update last week and Telus got theirs today, it must have been released to Rogers - but still we wait.
This is a joke.
We've been waiting months for this essential upgrade and it appears we are literally the last carrier in the last area of the world to not have 2.3 Gingerbread.
The ladck of BT dialing is simply unaccaptable.
I've had enough of waiting for Rogers to interface with different mobile carriers for updates. My next hardware upgrade will be purchased outright from an American provider, and shipped to Canada.
This will eliminate Rogers bloatware, and it will eliminate the little "tweaks" put into the Rogers hardware. (Like the removal of the audio chip in the Captivate).
It will also allow me to get updates as fast as the Americans.
This will also allow me to stop signing contracts with Rogers. I think this is clearly the way things need to go.
You can do that?? I've been wanting to do something like that, but wasn't sure if using an AT&T phone would be compatible.
Once unlocked, it should work. I suppose you can still get an expensive phone from Rogers, and then sell it on eBay to help reduce the cost of the phone you buy...
Actually you'd be surprised to hear that Telus pulled their update.
My friend updated his phone with 2.3 then found out that Telus revoked the update and it wouldn't work on his phone after.
But this is quite the annoyance that Samsung (NOT ROGERS) can't get their crap together.
I think it's a Samsung issue... and you should all take it up with them.
