    ipeck you should be able to but by then videotron probably will start rolling out the updates for gingerbread cause or else they will get a bunch of complaints so I wouldn`t worry.

    i called them to ask. They told me the were inspecting and tweaking the updates carefully so they will not cause the phone to stop working on their network because they have a higher frequency than the others. (the reason why the iphone is not yet on the network, its not capable of higher frequency) He assured me that the updates and 2.3 will be rolled out, but can't tell me when...

    Wait a minute does that mean that you can`t root and flash a custom ROM or even a stock one because the frequency is wrong? And isn`t the frequency something that is hardware not software if I were on Videotron I would root nandroid and install gingerbread when it comes out and go down to Videotron and be like ``so what do you say about the ROM needing tweaking now ***** it works fine´´ ok maybe that is a little much but I think you have been told BS by the associate.

    No! this is not true ... You can flash to a custom or stock OS from google... I'm running 2.2.1 (FRG83D) Videotron need to make sure the OS is running fine with the services and network thats all ...

    Iphone does not support the AWS frequency because of the chipset used ...

    I was tired of all those wifi issue. So I rooted my phone and install the 2.2.1 OS.

    You're probably right iPeck, but I'm pretty sure that, for now, Videotron is more busy building his network than thinking about upgrading their phones; in Laval, I swapped often to the "Partner" network.
    So, instead of waiting, I prefered to "root" my N1 and install the 2.2.1, like "SpOuk3" did. I just did this afternoon and wow, big difference between the 2.2 custom from Videotron.
    But, maybe Videotron will surprise us and update their phones rapidly, who knows...
