Yeah Samsung is pretty on the ball, but carriers like AT&T take their sweet ass time pushing the fixes out.  They have to add their bloatware to the new ROM revision first.

Dont see why Google doesnt make these kind if patches available to install by a link from their site.  Take the OEM and carriers out of it. Especially if it is a major fix.

I agree but then heaven forbid that it stopped the phone working with that particular carriers network, people would lose their minds.

 

I do agree though this needs to be fixed, why on earth carriers have so much control over a phone when all they do is patch a call through...

And many HTC customers won't ever receive a patch.
