  • Otokon07

    I know this is ridiculous how they play games with us knowing were what keep them afloat we are the money. Be it samsung or tmobile theyre disapointing and unprofesional

  • Otokon07

    They lack common communcation skills the left hand doesnt know what the right hand is doing its unethical poor management and false advertisers

    • Uramoron

      you are an idiot. false advertising? do you know you wave the right to state that when u purchase a product. you uneducated fool

  • Your name

    I’ve been running the leaked 2.2 for a week or so now and it’s been pretty solid for me. It’s gonna be worth it when the official one is released.

  • SamsungSuxx

    Samsung Oh Samsung…how unhappy i am with you. Since you promise 2.2 for the past couple months but was unable to keep your words, here is my promise (you started this) for you (Samsung) – if i don’t get my upgrade for the Vibrant by December, I promise not to buy any of your products AGAIN and will advise all my friends too! :-) I can not believe Samsung spent all the time and effort to sent out a “fake” 2.2 called “2.1 UPDATE” I will be totally happy if you came out straight forward with us saying that 2.2 won’t be out until 1 years but instead you made small promises month after month. Hope someone got fired for these promises!

      Dont Be Stupid!!! It Wasnt Samsung,, It Was T-Mibile That Lunch 4G,,, They Wanted To Promote It With The New HTC And My Touch!!! Its Called Marketing… They Wahted To Have Costomer By The New Phones First..

      • SamsungSuxx

        Wow what sup with the harsh words “Don’t be Stupid!!!” there Shmelevn? don’t worry I won’t be harsh back at you… but here is what i have to reply back.. First, you need to check your resources before posting about who to blame! T-Mobile or Samsung. Very simple prove is to read the comment from above user “Ioweyou” he/she stated that it not up to T-Mobile…it come directly from Samsung Kies Program. Also let say you think he/she is stupid too well here is more resource for you http://www.androidpolice.com/topics/phones-devices/samsung/vibrant/ the first couple articles has Samsung apologized the phone user for being late. Secondly, you should learn to spell check before posting. Thirdly, “It Was T-Mibile (T-Mobile) That Lunch (Launch) 4G” – why did you bring up 4G into Samsung Vibrant 2.2 discussion board?

  • AARRGG

    lmao I’ve been going through the same crap ever since I bought the worthless behold 2 in may. and as far as I know this phone will never get another update. wasted money and so much wasted time with samsung

  • NoLAN

    uggh, I’ll believe it when I see it!

  • NoLAN

    uggh, I’ll believe it when I see it!

  • GAMESTA

    Can’t wait too but I did download and apply the “one click lag fix” app and it works flawlessly. It didn’t diable my purchased apps either.

  • Bolorine

    Im so tired of Samsung bull shitting us with their 2.2 update lies

  • howie69

    Did someone say vaporware? I hate to think I was duped into buying a phone under the guise that a flash-supporting update would be released later on. I should have thought twice about that anyway, I suppose, considering T-mobile’s history of not releasing important device updates.

  • Iownyou

    we are getting the update for the vibrant, so relax. quit crying. any moron that would believe a sales person as to when the update will come, should die. it is not up to t-mobile when the update comes. it is directly through samsung kies program you put on your pc or crappy ass mac. that is what samsung stated. the update is through them. you will receive a text message when the time is near.

    do more research next time, lazy american pussys.

    • Orbnauticus

      Wow. That’s a bit harsh.

    • Gktii

      did this moron just say, “crappy ass mac”? obviously, this idiot doesnt have a clue about computers or how they run….let me guess, windows 7 was your idea? LOL! this isn’t even an article about computers you dolt! Go back to your cave of dungeons and dragon games, and leave the sophisticated conversations to the adults….ever seen the movie hangover? well this guy is a RE-Tard. Crappy ass macs….hilarious….only crappy cause you can’t afford one!

    • Jer

      you’re an idiot

    • KosherPork

      Bravo! I am american, lazy 73% of the time, but not a pussy. Yeah people in america can be VERY impatient and uneducated when buying things. But us “lazy american pussies” might be to distracted by f*cking your mom in the a*s every night till she bleeds to do the research before buying various consumer products. As for being impatient, well all I can say is that when Americans are you used to your mom sucking our d*cks on command you can see how some of us might be impatient on all good things. Hey…Iownyou, go f#ck your mom because everyone else has. That b@tch didnt call me a lazy american pussiy when I f@cked her brains out.

  • Wingedlightcarrier

    Listen Kosher you are an idiot for talking like this…to say an update will be out when its out is the same as saying a cure will be available when it will be available even though the cure is out there. T-mobile’s newest phone the Lg optimums has 2.2 already so why the hell can’t Samsung make this available on a much more expensive phone? It is ridiculous that we have to wait. Samsung Kies is not even avail in the us so we cant get it there. So keep your stupid and insensitive comments to yourself. If you don’t mind waiting then fine…I do.

  • Otokon07

    its not about crying but we have the right to complain when a buisness advertises as such but doesnt deliver but if you dont mind waiting a year then why read through the posts then go do something you consider to be more productive, hypocrite. Your searching becuase you know its wrong and thats why people complain this is a site for opinons on froyo 2.2 supposed release or dont you read?duh!

  • Qiksylvr13

    Wow 2.2 has only been out for 6 months and they finally get around to sending us an update. Last time I buy an android from Samsung. Since 2.2 is already becoming out dated, anyone have any real information on whether or not the Vibrant will be getting the 3.0 update? If it is getting the update I’m sure that Samsung won’t get around to releasing it for another year. HTC all the way!

  • Otokon07

    And im proud to be an american soldier hooah

  • MW

    Anyone that is complaining about software upgrades for their smart phone evidently doesn’t have enough to do and has too much time on their hands to worry about this. Honestly, the Vibrant works fine with 2.1 and although I’m sure 2.2 will be great too I don’t spend time worrying about it. Honestly folks, it’s a phone. Get a life.

    • howie69

      People who buy smartphones usually buy them for a reason. It’s not just a phone. It’s a business tool. It should function as such. I’m glad yours works fine for your neato little video games and your “Avatar” watching, but I require Flash support for much of what I do. When a salesman tells me that 2.2 will be out in a couple weeks, I expect the guy to know what he’s talking about. However, it’s not all Samsung not offering the update. T-mobile drags their feet, then drops the update completely, moving on to their next cash cow… like the HD7 and myTouch 4G. Go enjoy your Sims 3 and Avatar…

    • Kranitz

      yeah, who needs wifi tethering? The device is just fine without it.

      • pearsonman

        you all do realize that android is open source, if you do not like it, fix it – don’t complain

    • Josh

      Like it or not our lives include our phones.

      Actually the voice commands in 2.2 are really nice. I was showing them to a bunch of friends at work that have Captivates, and I figured they had 2.2 by now, because there were announcements back in September that the Galaxies were finally going to get froyo. Sadly, they didn’t work on their phones, it just searched instead. I love being able to just say “Navigate to restaurant name”, and poof! like magic, the phone goes into full-on GPS mode and maps the route, etc. No typing in an address, or having to search for it first and then try to find the address and click on it, etc. I even use it for texting, like “Text wife I love you”. All I have to do then is hit send. Tip: you can even say punctuation, like “question mark” during the message and it will add the punctuation. It’s pretty awesome.

    What kind of patients would you like for us to have? Dental patients? Given my druthers, I’d really prefer to have the kind of patients that don’t have any serious illness.

  • Guest

    False sales are typical as wifi hot spot is not available on this phone. T-Moble stores sell the product as if this feature was available.

  • Andeen92

    Im suprised google has yet to upgrade vibrant to the 2.2
    My old MyTouch 3g has already recieved the update.
    does anyone know if it is going to be OTA update?

  • Baum Brett

    I have a vibrant and i still have yet to get the 2.2. Update… When will i get it?

  • Jar

    I cannot wait for froyo to reach my vibrant. Please send the OTA for 2.2!

  • Mmmmmmmmm

    They have been saying this for 4 months,,,chuckleheads!

  • Ron

    If you want 2.2 so bad go to XDA developers website and download a Froyo Rom for your phone. There are quite a few Froyo Roms there specifically for the Vibrant, especially since the code was leaked… :) I’m running a Axura, a 2.2 Rom from Desv4android. There is also Macnut from Eugene and Bionix from Whiskey. I have used all of them and have found Axura to be faster and extremely stable. Wifi tethering and Flash 10.1 are great to have… :)

    • Garry

      Do you have to unlock the phone first before you flash a 2.2 rom?

      • Anonymous

        Not unlock, just root. theunlockr.com has step-by-step video tutorials on rooting and installing the roms as well as links to the roms. It helped me get my MyTouch3G to Froyo a few months before the official Froyo release for the MyTouch.

      • N Miller

        nope

  • Gooncityfl

    This is great!

  • Dozzer0319

  • Rensack

  • Chrisvw82

  • George

    hahaha, dust in the face to other android phone owners, after 2.2 update vibrant will be the best!

  • Chrisvw82

    • anonymous

      Nice grammar and spelling

      • Sadsamsung

        Nice to pick on something so insignificant. I could still understand the person’s post.

        I agree with Will, I wish I had went to another company instead of supporting Samsung.

  • opiapr

    Calling it BS and why can they ever be up to date and only release the update when a newer version is out that sucks.

  • Unclerigormortis

  • Nickp824

    Whats horrible is my original mytouch got the 2.2 update and my vibrant is stol running 2.1…?

    • N Miller

      Mine too. but is a different build because the hardware in our my touch is a lot different than the galaxy phone. even with the 2.2 on the my touch, it is still not as good as 2.1 on the galaxy s phones. you got a point though. I want Froyo

  • Anonymous

    Wow, Gingerbread is out and still no official Froyo for the Galaxies.

  • Jayjay88

    Android 2.3 is out On Google Nexus S.
    T mobile is still stuck with 2.1
    everyone ebay your vibrants and get NexusS :)

  • Staceygoss817

    This is ridiculous I would not have bought this phone if I knew Samsung would screw their customers like this, BOO

  • Lopiacha

    Can samsung give us 2.3?? This is ridiculous, 2.2 is obsolete. Come on samsung !!!

  • Jkcollins007

    My Vibrant OS says 2.1.1, Is there a difference between 2.1.1 and 2.2?

    • http://twitter.com/evanwilder Evan Wilder

      yes 2.2 is called “Froyo” and it is a nice big update to the operating system.

  • sadsamsung

    Wow. we were seriously screwed over here.

    This statement was from 6 months ago and we still haven’t received the update while other phones of lesser specs have the update.

  • Vibrant

    We got screwed….Honeycomb is almost out, and we, Vibrant owners, are still craving for froyo. Samsung really needs to work on this update thing if it really wants its phones to be called “high end” phones….

  • Thomas

    when is the update for 2.2 coming out, this is getting ridiculous

  • Vocico

    Still waiting on the update and this post from T-Mobile was 5 months ago!! I got this phone because I was told the mytouch would not be getting the update and now my friends that have the mytouch also have the 2.2 upgrade and still do not!!
