OS 7.1 for Bold 9900 -Rogers Canada

I'm wondering when the OS 7.1 update will be released for 9900 users on the Rogers network. I was in the US a week ago and got to see first hand how great the updates are to the phone. I've been searching online ever since and have learnt that Teleus and Virgin in Canada have released it at the end of February 2012. We are a week into March and we have no news Smiley Sad any insights anyone?

That's a forward-thinking question, the type that is very rarely (translation: never) answered by the carriers.

 

 

I hope that clears things up for you.  Smiley Happy

I am with Virgin mobile canada in alberta as well and bell (Virgin) has only released 7.1 for the 9360. I as well have a 9900 and think its being released in a month or so. Not sure why just the one phone gets the update for now. I think the carriers are testing first and if no problems will release it in a month or so

I'm guessing 7.1 will arrive in the next week or so for Rogers. I'm tempted to use the Telus OS and just remove the vendor.xml file but we'll see.

Re: OS 7.1 for Bold 9900 -Rogers Canada

Virgin (Bell) Finally released OS 7.1! But a word to the wise I tried it for testing to update my phone over the wi fi and it worked but had problems with Blackberry maps. I then plugged my phone into the computer over a week later and the desktop software wanted to updae some modules.

I advise when updating to avoid problems do it throught the desktop software. As well OS 7.1 takes up to 2 hrs.

My phone took roughly under 2hrs. After updating the modules through the desktop software my 9900 is very responsive and Blackberry maps works like a charm. The only thing is carriers can choose what features to support, that being said Virgin Mobile Canada (Bell) chose not to support wifi calling in 7.1.

OS 7.1 is really good, improves the overall responsiveness of the phone and is a great update. BB Traffic works great. Plus the browser is a little more responsive as well. They updated the version of java as well as the OS, so it is a great update.

I asked Rogers when 7.1 would be available, but the fellow had no idea. I downloaded the Telus update (9900 and 9310) and used that. It was easy and works well. Just make sure you delete both of the vendor files.

From what I have heard all vondors in canada that I know of didn't include wifi calling. I told virgin I was disappointed. So far works good. Forgot to charge yesterday. Today the phone has used 2-3% maybe.
Far cry from before without the power saving feature
