I replied back to them with this message,

Look, I've been following the firmware update since 1.6 was released. I've
contacted Rogers several times and usually the response i got was Rogers
is pretty slow with the firmware update, give it 2 weeks or so. In fact,
i've called back a month later and your tech support told me that it's
nothing to do with Rogers and told me to speak to HTC support. I knew this
has nothing to do with HTC because Rogers has to remodify the firmware so
that it's custom to Roger's preference. HTC tech support said that they
only sell the device but they do work together with Rogers to push out the
firmware and Rogers is the one to initiate the firmware rollout. In case
if you don't know, 1.6 is a way much better firmware than 1.5. Not only
it's faster but slicker. What is wrong with Rogers getting out 1.6 update
when the android developers are already working on 2.0 firmware. And 1.6
firmware maybe very well the last update for htc dream/touch because 2.0
runs slower on htc dream/touch (would be a miracle if Rogers can roll out
2.0). I hate to know Rogers are not releasing any firmware in the end. How
can i trust in the future if any of the phone i am buying from Rogers will
be supported? Please escalate this message to your senior management
(whoever cares about their customer concerns).

I think this will help if the Rogers HTC dream/touch owner give Rogers a
call and demand for 1.6 update.

I agree with you %100 but I don't think we are ever going to see any upgrades for our phones. Rogers keeps bringing the price down on the Magics. It looks like they are trying to liquidate them. I have also contacted Rogers and HTC and have gotten the same replies as you. I have finaly given up on them and have installed Cyanogenmod on my phone and it works great. My opignon on the matter is don't wast time waiting after Rogers, install Cyanogenmod or your HTC Dreams. You won't regret it.
