Your kidding, right? Summer 2016 is your best estimate? That's 2 - 5 months after every other carrier in the country got theirs! (rolls eyes). Can't wait for this contract to end. In fact, I might not. Might just pay off the phone and jump to... somebody (anybody!) else.
I have been with Rogers for just over 5yrs now it has been great but as far as the Updates to OS for any of there devices be it Blackberry , Apple IOS or Android they are extremely slow to release the update. Why is this the case
They are just terrible at customer service. Once you sign up for one of their plans there is no incentive for them to keep you satisfied so they basically ignore their current customers and focus only on acquiring new subscribers.
Note that now that AT&T has upgraded their S6 to Marshmellow Rogers is now the last major carrier to upgrade their Android devices. There might be some smaller carriers but I think most major carriers have completed the upgrade.
I've been with Bell and Telus and they're pretty quick to upgrade with security patches and OS versions. What worries me most about Rogers is that the security on my device is just as outdated as the OS. Once my contract is up I will be moving our company's devices to a more secure provider.
We’re working with Samsung and will be releasing Marshmallow on Android devices with additional functionality soon. The Galaxy Note 5 will be the first Android to get Marshmallow. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and other devices will get the update in the following weeks.
Please make sure you retain the original software on your Rogers Samsung device so you can enjoy all our updates. Thanks for your patience!
Do like me, im running Marshmallow on my S6 Edge + for a while now.
No issue just change the CSC to another provider, I did Bell, upgrade to Marshmallow, then switch back to Rogers.
Now I have Marshmallow with all the Rogers upcoming feature like WIFI Calling and stuff. Currently not activate yet, but comming soon 🙂
