As the title states. Will Samsung ever reach a point that it can just push updates to phones without the carrier's say so, like Apple does with the iPhone? How does the whole carrier update work anyways, what kind of agreement between manufactures and carriers? Without carriers, we'll get update quicker. And we won't have to deal with different variations from carriers, such as quoted below. For example look at the S6. http://www.techtimes.com/articles/4...le-at-t-verizon-and-sprint-heres-the-list.htm Would also like to note ......... Since US carriers as moving away from subsidized prices from contacts. Shouldn't that take away some of the carrier's power, or bargaining?
