Its the same as the Samsung GS2 LTE. Telus just got the update on June 7th, nothing announced from Rogers. We don't even have a date from them. We are last for all the updates it seems. Was going to pre-order a S3 from Rogers, think I will wait and get one from Bell.

Hmm so the delay is still going on. I really want to know what on earth is taking so long from Rogers to release it? Like do they understand that they have customers?

Rogers should at least tell us WHEN they plan to release the update. Instead of not saying a thing.

Please tell me that no one believes that rogers doesn't know when! They just don't want to share! I'd bet you dollars to donuts, if rogers was asked at a shareholders meeting, or by the board, they'd have the answer pretty darn quick!

They're probably holding it back in hopes that more people will buy newer, more expensive phones like the One X or GS3.

cadecairos: if that's the case, than I want ROGERS to hear this:

If you don't release an update for the Raider before July 1, and if you expect me to buy a new phone, you've lost a customer that brings in $220/mth ... I'll cancel my Rogers phone + Roger TV and switch to ShawDirect and Wind Mobile.

Will you please hurry up and release it already?

I cannot believe that it hasn't been released yet.  It's been over a month since Bell released it.

 

I am VERY ticked and upset that I bought the phone at full retail non-contract price the week it was released.  I should have bought the phone unlocked from the USA - and I would have the update already.  Or even the Bell version...

 

Rogers - it's no wonder that you're in the "Red" and having an issue with revenues. People are going to other providers...   Why?  Lack of support, lack of initiative, lack of transparency.

 

What is the real reason you're (from what I can tell) intentionally holding back the ICS update for the HTC Raider?  Are you hoping that people are going to buy the HTC One?  Well, the storage isn't upgradable and the battery (I think) isn't removable.  Are you holding off because you think people are going to jump on the Samsung when it's available?

 

The HTC interface is FAR SUPERIOR - Rogers holding back the update is ANNOYING!

 

There is no way that you're still "testing" it.  There is no way that it's taking this long.  Yes,  you "need" too add all the crap bloatware to the phone... c'mon, let's get on with it!

 

How about some transparency and telling us (the customers, the ones paying your salaries) what is going on and being open and honest about it?

I suggest that everyone with a Raider calls Rogers tech support and lets it be known that they want the ICS update.. I don't understand why Bell has it, HTC has promised it and AT&T has it for the vivid.. What's the problem with Rogers?

Well it's July 1st, and they have failed to meet HTC's Release deadline. Looks like I am forced to use a custom rom because Rogers clearly doesn't care about releasing updates in a timely manner.  I'll also contact Rogers again to see if they will comment on this.  If not, I will not be buying a new products and services from Rogers.  Im also going to tell my enitre office to stay away from Rogers.

I've a feeling, that I'll bite the bullet in December, and pay the remainder of the conract, and switch back to Mobilicity or Wind.  I'm tired of the BS and delays.  Stupid Rogers BS.

Apparently the update has been released today but i spent time to flash a custom rom already.  I may flash it back to the rogers ruu file to see how it compares with the custom rom.  Their poor service with this update will not be forgotten and i will still be telling my office to stay away from rogers.

Been trying to update for an hour now, still haven't gotten it. I wonder how long it'll take.

 

Anyone else had luck?

I spoke with someone from HTC not that long ago who said that it can take up to 45-days from the release date to push to all the devices. Knowing my luck, it will be 46-days for me.

 

This is just stupid how long it’s taken – Bell has had it for about 7-weeks now!

 

This will be the last HTC device I buy!  It will also be the last device that I buy from Rogers!

HTC released the update over 45 days ago. It has just taken Rogers longer than other carriers to customize the ROM for their Raider devices.

No update yet, on the facebook rogers page a few people are saying that Rogers is confirming the update has been sent out. Everyone that has an Evo 3D got the update so not sure why the raider hasn't yet. People have even called including myself Tier II tech support and they have confirmed the release. Let's hope it gets out soon. I think a lot of people have the right to be a little impatient now seeing as other providers have had the update out for awhile now.
