    Wouldn't it be cool if I were a jr Mythbuster?
    Vancouver area
    I was so glad to see the news about the new carrier this morning. Still wondering about Dave, too.

    I might just try to take advantage of the fact that I have a friend who gets to offer Telus Employee family and friends deals. He might be sorry that he extended the invite so far because I've got lots of questions for him.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I'll keep this thread on topic.

    Also, I forgot to point out in my initial post that I bought the phone in mid-October. When I spoke to the tech support guy then, he said the update would be out mid-late November. Obviously that hasn't been the case.

    It sucks because my family and I have been loyal Rogers customers since as far back as I can remember. We have all of our essential services (home phone, internet, digital cable, wireless phone) set up with Rogers. We have 4 family members all on a family plan together with Rogers for our wireless needs. I can't believe Rogers would go and screw their loyal customers like this.

    I decided to register after following this thread for the last couple days. I upgraded to the HTC Magic on the first day they came out. As a programmer, I was intrigued by the open source nature of the OS. I have rooted and installed a custom ROM, but there are little things broken on many ROM's. I would much rather an official update from Rogers.

    I was always under the impression that there would be updates, but knowing Rogers I was not expecting speedy action. I hope this Simon guy is mistaken.

    I hope so too but he insist that he can obtain information that others couldn't because he's acting on behalf of Mr Nadir.

    I have just sent this tip message to the Boy Genius Report:



    I always check the BGR daily and they were the first to inform me of the Android phones coming to Canada. I hope they can post a story about this to help our cause.

    Do you know if it's possible to return to factory (Rogers) ROM after you root it? I always assumed it was a one way trip...

    I told this simon guy that I just got this phone 2 months ago and now you're telling me it's obselete?? He said well.. any computer you get now, 2 months from now will be obselete. This is ridiculous. I told him we are strictly talking about software update not hardware update. Then i said why do we have to ask for firmware update when our neighbour state already got theirs and was pushed out by their provider without the consumer asking. He said, you know that US market is big right? Another BS.

    Just sent a heads up to TechCrunch.com about the whole Rogers thing. I figure the more places we can get to write about it the better right?

    Sounds like collectively we have hit up all the major tech sites :) Would be nice just to get a solid answer from Rogers, even if that answer was "no update". :(

    Hey y'all, I decided to join as well after checking up on this thread for the past couple of days! [and cause it seems you need a little more female presence ;) ]

    I bought the HTC Dream the DAY it came out after following the G1 in the states for awhile. My initial excitement took a serious hit after they dropped the price by $50 in the first month (and wouldn't credit my account) and then even further the next month (maybe it was just a sale at best buy, but it hurt you know?).

    Now with things like google goggles, turn-by-turn navigation and the google maps update we 1.5 users can't get, I'm pissed. I love android but Rogers needs to figure out what's up. I haven't thoroughly read this thread but I'm sure you've heard that Telus apparently has sole rights on selling the Droid here in 2010? Besides making me tear up just a little, maybe having an AWESOME (and up-to-date) android phone on one of their competitors will push them to finally do something...well hopefully :|

    I love the pressure you guys are putting on them! Thanks for the hard work so far =)

    Interesting! Twice now I have tried to post in the Futureshop forums about this, and BOTH times they deleted my post!

    Looks like they deleted you again!
    They must have left out of their guidelines, "Anything that may affect our sales." What a piece of work.

    :) you should use pyschology reverse. Say something nice like

    I love htc magic because it doesn't come with firmware 1.6 and I don't have to deal with uncessary pograms like VPN. Even though it runs slower than 1.6 but speed is acceptable .. lol
