Well it is a shame I have to resort to this to have current and Secure phone.

There will be consequences, and news is this WiFi calling will still deduct time from your minutes.

Corporate greed 101.

Oh heck ya Fido can't allow users to bypass using cell minutes using VoLTE. That isn't the way corporations with an oligopoly function. With no threat of real competition the big three providers can run roughshod over consumers with little fear of reprisal. Thus we get to enjoy almost the highest cellphone rates in the world while our neighbours to the south enjoy some of the best rates. It's frankly pitiful that third world countries can provide better and cheaper cellphone service to their customers.

Very true all of it, well I am now running marshmallow with a June security patch. I know July's patch is out but June is sure better than Fido's November version.

Love control over permissions and the doze feature but most of all the security.

Pathetic I had to resort to that here late into July.

FIDO should let us know what they are doing to the update, this would give us a good reason on waiting.

 

Not telling us means is FREAKING suspicious.

 

And also we should keep writting on this post so that it's on top of the feeds everyday!

yes, it's unacceptable that Fido is holding up the update for so looooooooooooooong. What's the point of getting a premium phone but using an OS that is a year old?!?!

Samsung S6 Marshmallow update??

It has been over 6 months that this essential update hasn't been released for a flagship phone such as the samsung s6... the update is out for literally almost everyone besides fido/rogers. i don't see how this is acceptable at all.

 

im tired of getting the same robotic response from fido reps 'Check the OS update schedule'.The OS schedule said coming in june a few months back and now its back to coming soon. how long are we going to wait?

 

is there any known way to get this update without waiting for fido to release their version? numerous family members are eager to get this update as well as myself. if not, as promised, this will be the end of my journey with fido. very unprofessional and thoroughly displeased with the ways they treat their customers.

Re: Samsung S6 Marshmallow update??

Don't worry! At Fido they're really working hard to make sure the update is Fido perfect, and they're totally sure that the update is coming really soon!

They really feel bad that you feel that way, and they might PM you with no solution whatsoever!

Finally, I'm sure that the update is "coming soon!"

I'm not sure what that means... I mean June obviously doesn't mean June for Fido, and soon obviously doesn't mean soon, but I'm sure it's coming soon!

Oh my god I'm turning into one of them... No concrete content to write... just empty platitudes... kill me now...

Re: Samsung S6 Edge Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow UPDATE?

This stupid company will never listen to us or care about its customer. Every other carrier in canada has the update since around April.
However, I have my own trick that I use since last year and get the update when anyother carrier release it since all S6 and S6 edge in canada are the same exact model. You only trick smart switch momentarly that your phone is for different carrier and you will get the update from smart switch no root or xnox triger or anything and you will still get the update over the air when Fido ever release it (if that would ever happen lol)

I cant put the links (don't want my post unfairly deleted) so just google "Get Update from different carrier using SmartSwitch [Canadian]" my thread is on XDA.

Now i'm using Kodoo latest software and i'm loving it loving the wifi calling and awsome battery improvment

In Augest security patch samsung said it patch a critical security vulrnability, so imagine how many security holes in your phones since it was never patched since november last year.

No kidding, I have read each patch release from Google and each have significant vulnerability fixes. This more than the OS is what have me upset. All the patches were provided but Fido decided it was not important enough. Great support.

not just Fido thats ignorant, even their moderator in here are the same. They keep deleting my posts just because I'm warning users to hold on use of banking apps on the phone while the are vulnerable since they don't have patchs since last year.
