I had noticed at the begining of June the OS upgrade page said that we'd see the 5.1.1 for our phones same month and that now has changed to Coming Soon! Anyone know what hapened or why Rogers backed from releasing the update.
The memory leak on this phone is a big killer on the device, restarting and closing out apps is a bandaid fix I'd like to see go away. Any mods know if or when will see this update?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
@steveburke23 tried this and still no luck. I see the update for all like a suger pill from the doctor. You take it and think it made a difference but it's all in your head. This update is the very same. Those saying everything is working fine are not even noticing or understanding VoLTE and what its suposed to do.
Regardless I'll call Rogers and continue the cat and mouse game.
VOLTE is VOICE OVER LTE Correct? That means when you make a call or receive a call, the LTE indicator stays on right? In the past (until yesterday when I factory reset the phone after the latest update) my phone would switch to 4G when a call was incoming. That is my understanding. As you can tell I have been quite against Rogers on this update, but now it seems they have it right. As for Video Calling, I cannot confirm if it works or not as I have noone to call using this.
I agree Rogers is the worst cell phone provider I have ever dealt with ever two day having to deal with some person that has no idea how to fix anything you can tell when I response takes 2 minutes and they have you undo everything that another I do it did two days prior rogers better get there shot together because I for one won't be paying for a service I have no been able to use like making phone calls Internet ect
Update: I was able to call Rogers and had a ticket made in regards to issues on my LTE service not working. Rep advised it gave an error when they were doing stuff on their end. I then got a call the next day advising my issue was resolved but tested to see that VoLTE was still not working.
Called last night again to speak with tech support. They did some changes on my account and had me restart my phone a couple of times and finally have it working, tested and no issues no. Haven't had a chance yet to test video calling but at least when I try it wont fail like it used to.
What I've got from all this is that Rogers should be calling the people who own these phones and be proactive just like the text they've sent out to make sure these people are up and running with the fix as I've seen most people already having to call in to resolve the matter.
Just nice to see that yes this issue is resolved and can move on. I encourage anyone having problems still to call Rogers tech support to get this resolved.
For me the issue has gotten significantly worse since the update. I've gone from the update appearing to have not done anything (was still showing 4G instead of LTE). Then on the 17th it dropped out again so I was working on GSM for a day, then saw that factory resetting the phone was fixing a lot of people's issues. After the factory reset it went back to LTE, occasionally dropping down to 4G, until this weekend it dropped out again and I had to go back to GSM. So again I factory reset the phone, got LTE service for a couple days, yesterday dropped back out and had to switch to GSM. Then this afternoon, after trying to test if I could get LTE again it stopped connecting to all data networks. Had tried switching back and forth between LTE/HSPA/GSM, HSPA/GSM, and GSM. Note this is outside in the middle of downtown Toronto where there should be no issues with LTE. I had walked around for an hour outside and couldn't get any data service, yet phone calls and texts were working. This is just becoming rediculous.
Well off to do my 3rd factory reset since the 16th.
Since update and factory reset I get LTE, but wifi no longer works with certain apps when they try to sync or download. For example, Outook mail, BNNgo, Samsung mail, Samsung account, Google Play. These all work fine with data, just not wifi.
Rogers tech says it is software issue and to contact Samsung.
Nice, but I suspect Rogers still wants my monthly payment and payment for all the additional data charges since that is only way apps work now.
Your phone, and all the information on it is reset (erased) to way it was when shipped new.
Download the Samsung SmartSwitch software (from the Samsung website) to your computer, make a backup of your phone first, then let it upgrade the firmware, then, do the reset. Once it's done, it should be able to restore your information (to your phone) from the backup you made.
Seems to have improved the performance of my S6 massively.
Having been burnt by updates before I have held off doing this one. After reading the reviews I see many having to do a factory reset after the update. I'm just a simple user and want to know what happens if you do a factory reset.
