    An OTA update on a Rogers phone will only work if you're using a Rogers SIM, and running an official Rogers OS.

    In your case, you'll have to wait and update manually.

    I have a 9900 unlocked Rogers, using a Fido sim. I got the OTA update for .585

    I didn't get a notification though, had to "check for software udpates"

    OK, so obviously the SIM isn't necessary then. Maybe something to do with Rogers owning Fido? You still need to be running a Rogers official OS though... probably

    oh nice! that was the answer i was hoping for! that's why i couldn't wrap my head around it...fido and rogers are the same network, but fido doesn't carry the 9900...it seemed like a crapshoot as to whether it'd show up or not...i guess i'll find out eventually anyway, but these little things bother me...kinda like losing sleep over if old tv shows are b+w and penguins are b+w, are penguins old tv shows or are old tv shows penguins?
