Yea no kidding, samsung needs to pressure rogers because they could lose customers over this and might go to apple. this is clear BS.
Stop always defending them....this country is twisted when it comes to telecommunications compared to the rest of the world.
Sorry I meant to post this in the S2 thread. Mods can delete if they'd like.
Meowinx, The main point you fail to see is that our service provider is Rogers, not Bell or Telus. I could care less if Bell or Telus haven't released the 4.1.2 update to their customers. We are Rogers customers so Rogers is who we will target, simple as that. Just because another carrier hasn't released the update yet doesn't justify Rogers for not bringing out the 4.1.2 update totheir customers. Why does Rogers have to wait until another carrier releases the update to release their own? Why not be the first carrier to release the update in Canada?
@Kiggen The update for 4.1.2 was rolled out to customers in Poland in August of last year. Now before you get bitter about it, this was the first update for the global S3 devices. The North Americans gets a different version of the S3. Therefore the people at Samsung needs to make and run and test two different versions of 4.1.2 for the S3. That being said, when Samsung does send the 4.1.2 to the carriers, the carriers also have to add their apps, run and test their version also. If you check the news today, Verizon just started rolling out the update to their customers but without one of Samsung's app "Premium Suite". Please be patient Kiggen.
I was surprised (read: angered) to see that my wife's S2 LTE i727R received the 4.1.2 update before my S3 i747M. I was under the impression that the S3 was their flagship phone, and that it would take priority over a 2 year old phone.
