I am wondering why the Galaxy S6 is still sitting with a November security update. I know people with unlocked versions that have January 2016. Whose fault is this Samsung or Fido? bad enough you have to wait 6 months for a software update for this phone. Over 3 months now since 6.0 has been out and nothing on update schedule here, Nada.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Well it's great Fido finally after almost a year released the Android M update but yet the security patch is sitting at the July Security Patch, you would think it would have the August Security Patch... Once again way a go Fido/(Rogers) for not keeping this up to date.........
Wow well isn't that just lovely, honestly I wouldn't be surprised if Fido/(Rogers) took the Android M update from a different carrier & modified it as their own as it took them almost a year just to release Android M on the S6/S6 Edge devices
So i did the update under tellus 2 weeks ago and my phone works SUPER GREAT i even have the VOLTE.
My version is G920W8VLU3CPC8, can someone let me know what version they got after doing their M update with Fido?
I have Bell version on my phone a friend updated today and has version G920W8VLU4CPG5.
Seems to be working great in early going, wifi calling and all.
As I predicted it was released in silence like they were first to get it out, no explanation no announcement, I knew it was out before any mod mentioned it here.
There was no apolgy, well the mods did but what about something from the top? talk about taking the customer for granted.
I did the update through Virgin/(Bell) & got VoLTE & Wifi Calling just this past week than after I heard that Fido/(Rogers) came out with the update hours later, I ended up installing the one from Fido & still got the same results as the Virgin/(Bell) update. That's why I said "I wouldn't be surprised if they took the update from another carrier & modified it as their own" lmao
I would be interested to know who 'promised' these updates on a monthly basis. was it google, samsung or fido? i'll bet it's google, and they no teeth to enforce their updates make it down the line.
The updates were promised by Google and then Samsung promised the same and yes they just released a February update and the S6 on Fido still sits on November's security update. Nexus devices are now able to download Androd N beta and six Months later my Fido S6 is still waiting for Android M, how is that acceptable? smh
The wait is over... The Android M update with Wi-Fi Calling & security updates is now available for the S6/S6 Edge! Thank you, everyone, for your patience with this.

I totally get your frustration @tcartr . We'd hate to see you go .
I wish I had updates to give you regarding this but nothing new for now. I'll make sure to forward your feedback though, that's how things could change!
i suspect Fido might be a little hesistant to implement monthly security updates considering the debacle that was 5.1.1.... that said there are other methods to secure your device (antivirus programs) that would patch holes as soon as theyre discovered until a more permanent fix can be had.
