Edit: 2.1 update is coming for Rogers users on November 8th : )
Debrand your phone
True lol, completely forgot about that word. How could i, im ashamed
By the sound of it, he is just saying it has no planned date yet. Doesn't necessarily mean it will be released in January, he just doesn't know when it will be released, so he answered yes when you asked him if it could come out in January. Because he doesn't know when it will come out
The representative didn't have a clue what he was talking about and was just trying to cover his behind. The reps in the call centers are given very little information. They're being coached by their team leaders to give vague responses on purpose (I know because I've worked for several similar call centers).
I've said this like FOUR times now: Sony Ericsson Canada has tweeted already that the update will come in NOVEMBER. All you have to do is explore back a few days in their twitter (twitter.com/sonyericssonca)
So please, stop panicking and/or inciting panic IT'S COMING, yeesh.
Nah i aint panicking, and forgive for not using twitter -_-. But yeh if its coming in november, good news. But i dont care, im debranding.
when i talked to rogers a week ago they didnt know when it was coming out and the girl told me they had a phone with 1.5 on it i might like. so yeah, they likely know less than we do
Okay, I asked this in the other thread as well, but it seems fitting, so is there an 2.1 version on for the x10a??
+1 Thats actually a very good question.
Don't want to insult the CS reps at Rogers because it is not thier fault.
They get the info last minute therefore no clue about the facts of the release.
When we got the latest firmware I was the one who announced it to the reps.
Therefore whatever they say don,t bother with it. The latest firmware i was really surprised that Rogers made it available very fast. And if it is taking longer than you need the 2.1 update when available then debrand.
Yeh debranding is the solution now, but erixon put a good point up. Is there a North American 2.1?
And don't forget another thing..these reps answering the calls may not even be living in Canada..
No they should be Canadian after all Rogers is a strictly canadin company, unless there's something I don't know about.
its primus youre thinking of, the telephone company. dont ever deal with them, theyre the biggest bastards in the world, threatening you with all sorts of legal bs they make up as they go when you threaten to quit.
i checked at noon today and still didnt see an update for rogers. ill check again tomorrow, anyone have any luck yet?
None, still trying to debrand the phone, its a bitch -_-
Let us know if it at least works for your phone since u r already going through with this. I might try this as well, although I don't use half the features of the Rogers plan anyway like no data plan, don't use Twittwadder nor Facetiousbook. Hmmm why do I even have this phone N E ways???
Im just doing debranding, mainly cuz im bored, i know eh wow. So keeping myself busy
Nothing for North American x10a's yet. 2.1 has been out less than 48 hours & SE states they plan on having all kits rolled out by end of November at the latest.
For anyone whose x10a is still branded, there will be a further delay as your phone provider changes the code & adds their bloatware to it.
So estimates for all things included - probably ready for North America around Christmas or New Years (that is my guess & I'm not quoting SE on that timeframe).
Im trying to flash it, but Java is giving me problems. **** ME
I'm on Rogers running 2.1 and it works very well! I'm just wondering if later I'll have troubles with the updates since the phone is X10a the the firmware X10i...
It might not be worth the troubles if you're not really in a hurry to get the update though.
I'm also on Rogers running 2.1 with that firmware. If anyone want the procedure, here it is :
X10Flash 2.1 final & 2.1 Firmware - xda-developers
You also need then to re-enter your APN settings in order to get data.
Rogers APN SettingsXperia X10 Rooting | Xperia X10 Rooting for the settings
I am running on this firmware for about 4 hours now and it seems to work like a charm
a little off topic. but if i root the phone or debrand it and the phone needs to go back to rogers as im sure it will sooner or later again, would i be able to put it back the way it was to return it? id rather not send them a phone thats been altered to run better in any way and risk them telling me it was my fault its screwed up
I had a false joy... plugged my phone and ran PC companion...it told me an update was availlable.....it downloaded and ''updated'' my phone... at first boot i realised that the Fware just wiped my phone back to factory...at 1.6 ... dang it... i have nothig else to lose so i'm downloading the NW firmware....
Rogers Customer service is in Sherbrooke, Qc, Canada
wich is about 30 min away from me and trust me... you don't want to deal with them...
totally dumb pples
i have to call them each time i sign a new contract (my 5th since December 2002)
sent them an email asking if htey got contacted by sony for the update...
maybe if we show enough interest they'll force it?
i'm giving them 100$ each month...
they should listen us
I heard about some glitches.
1. Is music working thru headphones ok?
2. Do you have Full 3G and Wifi with no problems?
