I sure hope that more options other than kies can be made with regard to updates! Not just because KIES is *&^%, but also because the usb conection on my phone can not be found at all! I have done everything short of sending it out .... off warrenty! My question is the os has an update software option in about phone and allows the update to happen over a wifi connection!
COME on ROGERS, make it happen! more ways to officially upgrade phone!
ps. samsung you too are responsible for cheaply made parts! Like the phone, network needs improvement- i have had connection issues ever since they changed my plan ...... lol! os lock up issue, kies detection issues, the only thing it does is charge ... battery drain a little hi since the plac change ... ! lol using the old parts of the network!
Its Rogers & Samsung at fault here. Both have made the agreement to push out the updates via OTA. Also it depends which device you own. Some devices are NOT supported on KIES. This is Samsung's fault, NOT Rogers. You must understand that as well.
In the end, Rogers i would say should be able to sent out the updates via OTA. They have been doing that for most of the new devices tho
