When will Rogers push Samsung Gear VR support?

Hey everybody,

 

I'm wondering if this is a potential issue, or if it's a non-issue.   I am obviously on Rogers with my S6 Edge +.   The new Gear VR comes out Nov 20, 2015 in the USA.   I have someone who is going to buy it for me who just happens to be travelling back to Canada on Nov 25.   From experience or knowledge, does anyone know if I will run into any issues when trying to use it?   eg) the Carrier (Rogers) doesn't need to update phones at all with anything Rogers specific, will they?

Sammobile just listed the update for all the Canadian carriers, so YES, it is indeed coming tomorrow.

Good work Rogers, I just checked for updates on my Galaxy S6 Edge + and the Android update started downloading, I'm setting up my Oculus account right now.

Thanks

I just noticed that it now shows the Android security patch level in the phone "about" info. Excellent.

@GibMcFragger, yeah and you won't see Nov 1 level move for months and months with carriers controlling updates. They did included App Optimization in the battery section finally though.

I don't see why Samsung can't just push the security updates directly. You don't need carrier involvement for small updates. It's a waste of time and resources. Full OS updates yes, because they require testing and adding of carrier bloatware, but not small security updates.

Any issues encountered running LMY47X.N920W8VLU2AOK5 update?

None that I've seen. Gear VR works, because I bought one and used it yesterday..... Before returning it.

I got bored of it quickly, and it didn't wow me for the $139CDN they charge for it.

Great to hear VR works. What about the rest of the device?there are issues reported on other threads like: can't forward phone calls, can't receive calls, SMS not received, and really bad battery life, calls cutoff/dropped, etc. Sounds like you didn't experience any of these before and after?
