I did not go through all the postings from this conversation.
Anyway I have an unlocked streak from FRANCE and 2.2 is still not available.
ANY IDEA AS OF WHEN it will be available for download ???
Salut ami français!
Amy m'a déjà répondu page précédente:
For unlocked Dell Streak purchases, I would recommend checking for the update in France in one week. There will be instructions in French included in the update.
Nous en discutons sur notre forum français: http://streak.forumgratuit.fr/discussion-infos-questions-f1/22-en-route-aujourd-***-t593.htm
you have spoken about EU and US updates in details but what about updates to indian customers? will it be simultaneous... will be happy if u can provide some specifics on that!
I'm pretty frustrated with the whole Dell Streak update issue, it has poisoned me against Dell specifically and manufacturers generally who seem to think its acceptable to release sub-standard products just because they can be updated later, often at the users inconvenience.
I wanted a Streak as soon as I saw it but I wouldn't buy it with Android 1.6 because I specifically wanted Flash support and I had no confindence in Dell supporting it once they had my money. When I read that the Android 2.1 update had been released I ordered my streak from Dell. I didn't realise that the 2.1 update was O2 specific and anyway by the time my Streak arrived (much later than indicated by the website but that's another story) the 2.1 update had been withdrawn due to its bugs.
So again I'm pleased with the piece of hardware Dell has delivered but frustrated by their software, support & the information provided to customers. My phone (like others) freezes occasionally or I'll go to use it and its off which means I can't rely on it as my business phone, I kept it hoping the promised update would fix these problems.
After weeks of no information we're now told that 2.2 will start rolling out to 'unlocked' customers on 15 November, well that's me and 2 days later my Streak is still not updated. It really isn't good enough. The streak is probably my last Dell purchase and definately the last time I buy something relying on a future update to provide the product I want.
I can't tell you how much I wish I'd sent it back and bought the HTC Desire HD.
My question is in regards to Streaks purchased from Dell in Canada as of today.....what OS will the now ship with??
There is. It just has to be a AT&T unit. 3G UK and 3G US are different bands/frequencies. AT&T 3G US works only if have the HARDWARE that works off the band. This is not a software thing. Honestly, I had a UK HTC Hero GSM here in the US and the difference between 2G(edge) and 3G is barely noticeable unless your streaming video. And if you have wireless...who needs 3G anyway?
