    Am not really sure how to do the update….followed all the directions but when I connect my phone to the computer nothing happens….kies still says to connect a device and nothing happens…please help??

      Sounds like your phone is not connected properly when you are trying to run Kies Mini.

      1. Install Kies Mini.

      2. Reboot computer.

      3. While computer is rebooting go to settings on phone.

      Click “Settings” then “Applications.”

      Put a check mark in “Unknown sources”

      Back on Settings, click Applications, and then click “Development”

      Put a check mark in “USB Debugging.” (This allows your computer to access the Vibrant to do various things and to communicate in ways I won’t go over.)

      Get back to home page.

      ____________________

      Assuming your computer has fully booted up, now connect your Vibrant to a your computer with a USB cable.

      Listen for a sound that signifies the USB connection is taking place (see my video below).

      If you don’t hear that sound, try a different cable, and/or a different USB port.

      “Connect the phone from the drop down menu on the Vibrant, “USB Mount.”

      Once connected, then open Kies Mini on the computer. It should automatically look for the Vibrant and once finding it connected it will tell you an upgrade is available. Press the “Upgrade” icon and that’s it, should install.

      Note: Kies Mini may install a program update first, before installing Android 2.2 on the handset.

      i think original order is wrong – i start Kies on PC after connecting phone, that helped me.

    Some people in here are commenting that when they tap on the “New Message” alert in the notification bar, all their SMS conversations get deleted.

    This problem has happened across handsets, including Nexus One, Droids, Evo, Incredible and Galaxy S.

    It’s happening across Android OS versions, including 2.2

    This should tell you that this and many problems you are having are because of Google, NOT Samsung.

    So calm down on spewing hate and ill will on Samsung.

    How do I get avatar to work again?

  • Yardis

    It works great. Its way faster than it used to be, and it hasn’t froze since I updated it. Plus flash is great.

  • Jay

    Updated this morning. Phone cannot get past the Media scan phase, freezes then reboots itself. Over and over and over and over and over.

    • Druppel1987

      t-rep said it happens about 40% as a glitch in the update, just do a master reset and it has fixed 39.9% of those with that problem

    Upgrade went smoothly. Phones performing well. I had the Avatar issue, but after clearing the data chache and a few reboots it’s working again. Battery performance is way much better in Froyo so that a great improvement. Still wish the GPS was more accurate. Anyway, so far, no regrets.

  • theciscokid

    I spent 3 hours trying to fix a “device not recognized” issue on my Windows 7 laptop. Was unable to update, then I noticed the drivers on Samsung’s website for the phone are XP/Vista, so I tried an XP netbook I had and it was done in less than 20 minutes. It’s like buying a new phone in terms of speed. It’s lightning fast and the battery life is much better. My battery was down to 15% or so and I forgot to charge overnight. Normally that means it will be dead in the morning but not anymore. WiFi calling is awesome because I get terrible reception @ home. WiFi hotspot is also awesome. As for the GPS issues I can’t really report any issues because I never use it for directions.

  • Gnd63

    People keep saying back up your data before factory reboot. Ok, I did that. Now how do I get my old data back!!!
    thank you

  • HTChereIcome

    The update went easy. Unfortunately, it seems as if they may have rushed this release to quiet people. The problems I am having are reduced battery life. About 25 percent less from my estimates. Screen brightness doesn’t seem to change no matter what level I set it at. My 3G reception is not as good with this release. I used to get 3G in my work place, but now all I can get is Edge. The Aux port on my OEM car dock was supposed to start working with 2.2. No such luck. I am really disappointed that it took this long for this update and it seems half baked. This will be my last Samsung product.

    • Remixfa.

      Many people have been having 2.2 update issues on many devices. Its not just samsung. universal answer, factory reset, then let it sit for 10 minutes after it turns back on so it can rebuild files. 90% of the time it will be flawless afterwards.

      Also you need to let your battery drain completely and then charge completely, then reset your battery stats. That will improve your battery life substantially.

    You guys shouldn’t bother with the official Froyo. Why? It’s still filled with T-Mobile’s bloatware. Head over to ZDA, learn how to root and flash a custom ROM. I put Axura 2.2.6 on my Vibrant, and it is SO much better. My battery life alone is 50% better. The phone is so much faster.

    If T-Mo was smart, they would hire some of the devs from XDA to work on their updates.

    • Auser72

      You make the assumption that most people have problem with the so called bloatware.

        • Jess123

          Rooting can also make your phone faster – I rooted mine to Froyo 2.2/Nero v5, and used Quadrant to measure the speed – it’s now faster than any phone on the market (+1523), including the Nexus 2 and Droid X. I’m indifferent about the bloatware.

      I”m so with you on that? I’m hesitant to go with the official up because I love my phone with Axura and it came pre-rooted/lagfixed and scoring around 1475. My battery life has improved.

  • Rkapha

    I received a placement phone to fix the GPS problem the day before I updated to Froyo. My GPS problem was fixed and then…I updated and the GPS problem came back. I then downloaded the GPSrestore from the market and now my phone is everything I dreamed it would be. Thanks Samsung…but I will never buy another Samsung phone again.

  • Adam

    I have noticed a significant battery life increase… amongst many other operating speed enhancements.
    Opening, closing and switching between apps is definitely much faster, I have been using firefox as my primary browser, and the difference between 2.1 and 2.2 is clearly noticeable.
    The phones powers completely off and then back on again in half the time. I am pleased. It was worth the laborious wait…

    Have yet to notice GPS issues, though they were quite prevalent before the update to froyo.

    One issue I have ahd is that the battery seems to drain faster. Anyone else had this issue??

    • Anonymous

      Actually, that seems like a coincidence on your end, or you are simply paying attention to the battery now, and only now noticing that your battery is going out, that it would have had you not done the update.

      I say this because everyone else, including myself, are posting that we get better battery life, not declined.

      (Improved battery life was also one of the improvements users would experience on upgrading to 2.2).

      Bonus Tip: You may want to get a task killer on Market. The update will keep on some programs and also adjust your display settings. It sounds like you may have programs running that you did not before, so those are draining the battery faster. E.g., GPS, WiFi may be on, and some software may be running such as widgets.

    Followed the directions, removed my SD card, backed everything up and had no problems, though it took some willpower to not jump in after kies said it was done but the phone still just showed the big “S” on startup. Waited it out and, ta-da, a better phone! Faster, no lags, better battery life. Still hate the calendar/Exchange integration. Maps crashed once (GPS on and working well), restarted again, uninstalled and reinstalled Maps and haven’t had a problem since.

    The wait was TOO LONG, compounded first my the overblown promises and then the silence from TMO and Samsung, but glad for the update and the improvements/enhancements it brought.

    • Anonymous

      Look at the positive side, for me it feels like I got a new phone, this time without having to pay the $500 freight like I did in July.

      While I don’t subscribe to the conspiracy theory (that Samsung and T-Mobile held the update back so to motivate us to buy newer phones) getting this update has motivated me to hold off on getting a new phone, until maybe September when the new dual-core handsets permeate across carriers.

  • Rabi Fettig

    I can’t update. It seems like mini kies only recognizes my phone one time in ten. When it finally does, it tells me I have an “unregistered device” and gives me no options to do anything about it.

    I took it into a T-Mobile store this weekend to have them update it for me, and they couldn’t/wouldn’t do it. After an hour on the phone with tech-support, listening to how I needed to turn it off and on again, they finally told me that it was my own problem, I must not have the right version of Windows 7 (whatever that means) and that I can’t update no matter what I do.

    I am furious at Samsung. My girlfriend’s HTC phone got Froyo over-the-air. In OCTOBER. I will never buy another Samsung phone, and I will warn anyone else who is considering buying one.

    I dropped in at my local T-Mobile store Saturday (1/22) to ask them about my almost not-functioning Vibrant. I immediately heard that Froyo arrived the day before. The salesperson gave us the site to download update. I almost ran home and invited Froyo into my phone. Well…AMAZING. This thing is fast and battery life is much improved. I fell in love with my Vibrant again,

    People complaining about Samsung and swearing them off, that’s your prerogative, I guess. You can blame anyone you want for issues caused on your end.

    If this was a Samsung issue, as I said before, why is the install going well for the majority of people? Seems if it was a hardware issue that everyone would be having install problems.

    Bonus Tip: To avoid frustration, if you intend to get a different handset or book to another carrier, you best do your research first. For example, think the Nexus S is the answer? LOL… check this out:
