Doing this prevents you from getting any future updates and patches.  How do I know?  I've done it.

yes that and any other OS that isn't rogers will prevent any updates in the future coming through.  This is why it's so important for rogers to DO SOMETHING to get the 6.0 out.  We're the last ones in the world to get this update on the s6.  Congrats rogers, your in first place for being last.

Fair warning re: not getting future updates. My phone has a year left on it, and I'm betting that rogers won't get nougat out before then. Worst comes to worst, I'll get the nougat update from Telus/Bell the same way when it comes out.

Well the other thing is i've done it before on my S4 and bricked the thing.  An old rogers phone is better than a bricked one at least, but o-m-g why does rogers have to be the last one by months, and why does this thread have 31,000 views and not one person from rogers wants to make any comment?  Do we need to print the thread and send it to the ceo's office?

The (darkly) funny thing is that when I called in to Rogers to politely inquire about the delay and the reasons behind it, they told me to post questions like that in this forum in order to get answers.  Smiley Frustrated

The live chat agents have told me this in the past too. So how do we get rogers to respond to people who have viewed this thread 31,000 times? Isn't that a bit crazy to not have a response? Maybe if we keep posting about it and it sits on top of the forum list for a year someone might see it along the way? That's why i'm saying it almost feels like we got to print it and send it into them fedex with a signature.

As customers we are frustrated that after many months we still don't have the update. No one is giving us a time line or communicating what the very long delay is. The posts are about the inability for Rogers to provide an update that all other Canadian carriers provided well over 2 months ago. If Rogers is in capable of providing the service then as customers we have right to complain.

Just pass all morning at a Telus and Bell store to compare best deal. Lol Bell give an additional 10% on my monthly bill to switch over with them plus 3 free Galaxy S7 Edge. Not only my two lines will be cheaper then Rogers monthly I'll be bringing my dad from videotron with us for a total of almost 50$ less per month. Bye bye Rogers next time give us a reason on delays.

Hey Community,

 

We hear you loud and clear and we apologize for the delay in the Android M update for the Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge. The update will also include Wi-Fi Calling so we want to make sure everything’s working well before rolling it out. We will keep you posted - shouldn’t be much longer.

 

Thank you for your continued patience.

I understand how software releases work, but can you try and narrow that down to at least saying if they are targeting august vs september?  

 

So my head won't explode can you please refrain from using any words like "coming soon" or "shortly" that can be seen as subjective and at least tell us the month they are targeting?  Please note by using the word targeting its not confirming a release date it's just to define better what you mean when you say "shouldn't be much longer"

No one cares about the WiFi calling. If you guys knew anything about software development and customer service then you would know you should drop the WiFi calling for the v6 release, get it out, then release the WiFi calling feature at a later date.

But hey, you are probably also working on the new bloatware that no one wants.

I agree drop the wifi calling and release the update.

Hello @rzanatta

No one cares about WiFi Calling? Is that why some users on here are asking about the update with it? Or other customers asking about the update and WiFi Calling?.. Shouldn't be speaking about others to be honest. It all depends. Maybe the majority want WiFi Calling and the update at once.. U don't know that..

I see your point about the update but maybe just maybe they rather deal with it all at once instead of having it done separately. Remember the S7 and S7 got the WiFi Calling update and was screwed up. So they rather do it all at once to finish it. They made the public statement everyone wanted and now it's just a waiting game until they do send it out. Now we know why the update is also taking long.
