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!
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.
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.
pay an american carrier 500 bucks for the phone or get it from rogers for free on a 3yr term and flash your own software with the click of a button. Your call.
For what its worth, Im sure the delay with the 2.3 update is the battery drain bug it comes with.
Oh and rogers has way less bloatware than the american carriers... You can also uninstall it with titanium backup.
Well, there has been a court decision, that is going to force Samsung and Google to update all the phones to 3.0....
The Dutch court Judge threw out almost every point that Apple made, except for a small bit that is in the picture viewer. The judge noted that iot was changed after 2.3, and 3.0 has code that does NOT infringe.
So Samsung has to update all of the shipping phones to 3.0 before a date in October.
Again, all of the "look and feel" stuff that Apple was complaining about was thrown out.
I thought it voided it as well, but i've sent two android phones (both rooted) for repair, both came back fixed.
In any case, unrooting is incredibly easy to do.
Its sucks being member of Rogers. Rogers talk about best in canada for this for that but it does not know how to keep the current cusotmer. It seems like roger paying more attention to new customers and phones than providing good and up to date service to old customer. I been with Rogers for more than 8 years and its all most final if dont get honeycomb on my capative I wont be buying anymore Rogers phone Period!
Its shame rest of the world has the updates and being one of the best coutry in the world we have to face this situation...... I hope somebody in Rogers really cares about his customer other wise as we can see Rogers wont be number one in near future. Rogers wake up and bring updates to old customers..
Why does everyone blame Rogers? It's really Samsung that is dragging their feet. I rarely check anything on this site for anything in regards to my device. Kies is what lets me know i'm good for my update. I only stumbled upon this thread as I googled the release date for 2.3.
Because it IS Rogers holding up the update! Do you honestly think Samsung execs sat around one day and said "Lets update every galaxy s variant except that one in Canada!". Besides were those of you defending Rogers not around for the Magic\Dream fiasco? I gave up and rooted my Magic....
Which brings me to another point, please stop posting telling us to just root. If those of us following this thread wanted to root, we would be looking at an entirely different forum thread. We all know that we can root and have unofficial, buggy, no hardware accelerations for video gingerbread. But we are here because we want news, information leaks etc... on the Official Gingerbread release date. </rant>
