I then asked why it was already released on other wireless providers (like T-Mobile, etc) and she said that it is mainly because Rogers noticed the blatant problems with voice dialing and 1.5 so they really had no choice but to start workin' on 1.6.
Personnaly, I believe her. She really took the time to help me, was really helpful and I believe this information is true.
@Pascal: I hate to disappoint you, but I'm afraid she was either lying to you, or is freeforming from her script.
1. While voice dialing does not work _properly_ on Android (like it does on most dumb phones) it _does_ work with some tweaking. As mentioned, I have an HTC Magic with 1.5, and I use my Motorola Blue Tooth headset for handsfree dialing while driving. You can read about it here: Voice Dialer - Not really a voice dialer?
2. From everything I've read in other threads & forums re the voice dialer, it is NOT fixed in 1.6. So, again, Rogers is either lying, or ignorant. Google hasn't even bothered to fix it yet, they have listed it as an "enhancement" of "medium" priority.

Now, back on topic re: Rogers support of Android and 1.6: Despite what all of you are being told by tech support, please remember, Andy2010 and I have BOTH been in touch with the "Office of the President", and were both told different things!!! So obviously, no matter what a lowly tech tells you, they don't actually know what's going on, if even management can't get their message straight!
I will be emailing the OotP shortly to update them on the conflicting info and see what they say. I will post the contents of my message once it's done.
