They then have to return it to Samsung for release.
Therefore, if you have an operator who is either disinterested or just plain tardy it is hardly Samsung's fault.
There are two things that you can do...
1. Start petitioning your operator
2. Root your phone and you can install the latest firmware as soon as it is released.
I know this and not really blaming Samsung for this I blame Bell Canada for not caring about updates that is why my subject line says Bell Canada sucks not Samsung. But I do wish that our phones can just be updated normally and not go threw the carriers. I know this will not happen because the carriers need to add to it but I just wish it did not happen this way and that way we all can benefit from the updates. You know like how Iphone does it. When a update come out they do not go threw the carriers. And that is were I place some of the blame on Samsung they could do it that way.
