    Really? It failed for me and almost bricked my phone trying to update with Win7 64bit. I had to bust out my old comp and blow the dust off it to do the update.

    Edit: After further reading of others comments it appears maybe I just needed to leave USB debugging on, as I did already have the (non-rogers/latest) Win7 supporting HTC Sync.

    I had nearly the same experience as Snack. After 1/2 hour on hold I was told to update my phone and it will fix EVERYTHING! The guy either didn't get what I was saying to him about 1.6 or was told to act like an idiot. Regardless, the "free" upgrade to Magic has been suspended!

    WTF ROGERS?????!!!!

    I'm back!!

    If you are FIDO user with 1.6 custom ROM do not do any update!

    - have your phone turned ON
    - Call Fido
    - tell them that you don't have data since yesterday
    - they'll ask you what phone you have, say HTC Dream or Magic whatever you have
    - They'll tell you that there has been some problems, blah blah blah
    - tell them that you have applied the update but still no data
    - they'll tell you to wait 24 hours
    - tell them that you have heard that it could be done immediately if she only did the "Network Refresh"
    - she will do it, it's easy for her.
    - you will be asked to power down the phone and wait 10 seconds
    - power on an there it is, firs Edge and than 3G.

    Will it work tomorrow? Ask me tomorrow!

    I've been trying to contact OOtP since my last post to no avail (busy signal).
    Previously, I was speaking to someone in technical support. He told me that the free upgrade to Magic from Dream was suspended. Snack was apparently talking to a CSR who told him that it was simply "on hold".

    Here we go with the runaround again!

    Mary if you are still following this forum, please advise!

    I've had the best success in contacting them via email. When I opened my original concern (the dream to magic swap) I completed the online form, someone got back to me the next day and anytime I've had a concern/question since have just emailed her back. Always dealt with the same person and with email there's a record of what's been committed.

    Hey, just remembered something because of this whole 911 fiasco, which might open a can of worms.

    Does anyone remember the iPhone SMS hack from last summer? It affected Android phones too but was fixed immediately by Google.

    charlie miller sms hack android - Google Search

    But like this 911 fix, do WE have this other fix? Was this fix rolled into the version 1.5 that we have??

    Can't seem to find any info about the actual rollout of the fix.

    I am downloading the update now. I will post a message about my experience once I get the update from Rogers (download is SLOW - WTF... Rogers can't build a server that can handle customer traffic? Going on 1 hour and still another hour to go!!)

    I don't even know what else this update fixes... it may only be the 911 service (which I am not that concerned about). So why am I bothering with disrupting all the work I've done with configuration and what not?

    BECAUSE Rogers disabled my DATA... I lost access to my wireless data plan just when it was very important to me for accessing my work email!
    CLUELESS IDIOTS for not even bothering to inform me that this would happen!! I am so annoyed about this!! :mad: :mad: :mad:


    Anyway, I will post a message when I am done with this nonsense.

    Hello Friends,

    I updated my HTC Magic couple of days back and got Sense UI as part of the upgrade. Now I see that my <B>Exchange Activesync</B> is not working which used to work on the Stock Android OS.

    Any one else faced this problem? How did you fix it ???

    Thanks in advance.

    I did the update last night on my HTC Dream and got nothing but the pain of having to re-install all my apps and re-config everything. Why no sense UI for Dream?

    Perhaps it's time to start thinking about rooting the phone and getting a custom 1.6 or 2.1 rom on it. (unless rogers brings back the "dream to magic" upgrade deal)

    :(

    Supposedly the upgrade offer was put on hold due to the 911 fix. I have a feeling if you called rogers and made enough noise, they would still give it to you, if they have started selling magics again. I think they are sold out right now as well. Probably won't sell them till they get the patch update on them out of the box.

    Hi All,

    First off, thanks to everyone here for all the hard work in getting Rogers to not just notice, but to actually do something about support for Android. And thanks to @RogersMary for listening and caring about customer satisfaction. And for showing Rogers still cares about it's customers, at least a little bit ;) .

    I called into Rogers today to find out where my Magic was, since I ordered it 2 weeks ago. I first spoke to a rep in sales, and I was promptly transferred to the Warehouse. There, I found out that the order I placed online for the HTC Magic was canceled. Just outright canceled. The rep couldn't see why it was canceled either. She transferred my to another rep that was able to tell me that the Dream to Magic program was put on hold, and that they did not know when it would be continued again. She said that they did not have the Magics in stock. I expressed how unhappy I was that I was not informed that my order was canceled and that I was not made aware of this. She said that Rogers underestimated the demand for this program, and is out of stock of Magics. She told me that I should call back in about a week to find out if they have the Magics in stock. I asked if there would be an announcement of some kind, such as on the Rogers website as to when they get more in stock. She said that she did not know (this is understandable though, with Rogers internal communication issues).

    So in summary:
    1. Dream to Magic offer is on hold.
    2. Current unfilled orders have likely been canceled.

    If you are waiting for a Magic, I heavily suggest you call and find out if your order has been canceled. The more people that call, the faster they'll get the phones out to us.

    I have to say, that is about the most pathetic thing I have ever heard. How can they just cancel orders and not tell anyone?

    So Rogers is unable to do magic? And I thought that they would magically fulfill all my dreams...

    Hi,
    With the latest update when I go into Settings - Applications - Manage Applications - I see an application for HTC Flash Player but it has a size of 0.00B. I have read recently that some people seem to be getting Flash on websites?
    Does anyone have any insight into what this app is supposed to be and if it is supposed to potentially give some sort of Flash Player capability?
    Having 0.00B right now probably means it isn't much use.
    I have tried going to a couple of sights that have flash but it doesn't work.

    What browser are you using and can you send an example of a website that works?

    Thanks!

    Interesting. I was able to go to the Fisher-Price site and get the flash to work for one of the games there using the stock browser. Popped over to the same site using the Dolphin Browser and it was requesting to install Adobe Flash Player for the same game.
    Followed the link and tried the same site (Yahoo Movies) that is demonstrated but it wouldn't play the trailer for a movie. Guess the Flash Player in the HTC Hero demonstrated is different than the one we have...
    Guess it is hit and miss on this one.
