Over the past couple of weeks some S6/S6 Edge users have been experiencing connectivity issues when running Samsung’s 5.1.1 Lollipop OS. We are happy to report that a fix is on the way.
As detailed previously; we’ve been working around the clock with Samsung to get the right fix in place and starting today (November 16th) it will be rolling out in phases from November 16th to 30th.
It has taken longer than we had hoped, and we appreciate your patience as fixing the problem was a little more complex due to the VoLTE capability we offer on these devices.
In the interim, we still recommend you follow the troubleshooting steps here if you’re continuing to experience problems.
Steps: Manually drop the device to 3G/GSM from the Settings > Mobile Networks > Network Mode options.
What we do not recommend is flashing non Rogers software on your Rogers device – doing this can cause issues with performance and affect your device’s warranty.
Thanks again to everyone in the forum who has shared their feedback on this topic.
