I got this update, and it rocks! Bad news is, still only 3 homescreens. Good news includes updates to the camera, voice search, new lock screen and phone interfaces, runs faster than ever, and can use more apps off of the Market. This is a really good update!!

Go to the Market and Download the Helix Launcher (Not Helix Launcher 2), you get up to 7 Screens. Launcher 2 forces close and can brick your phone.

It was a 2 hour project, I had to download this install that, whats up with an OTA? Ran into many port errors but finally it was able to install and running smoothly.

You and me both. No matter what I did I couldn't run the update in Windows 7 64-bit. I downloaded the proper drivers and whatnot and the update program crashed and bricked my phone. I had to use a computer running Vista to update the phone. So if you are thinking of updating and use Win 7 64 just be careful because who knows what will happen and make sure that you have a backup computer to try it from running Vista or XP.

I ran mine on Win7 it took a couple of tries, but do not uninstall the driver, you might have to repeat the process until it recognizes your device. Then when it finally does it does not upgrade. I had to repeat the steps about 5 times until it worked.

I'm trying to do the update on my laptops at work with no luck. One laptop erases everything you add to the laptop so when I have to reboot the computer after installing the software the program keeps reverting back to the update that came out in February. The other laptop won't connect to the three different moments that I have and keeps popping up with add new hardware when the newest samsung drivers are already installed. I hope nobody comes to my store today to try to get the update!!!

When you are in uncomfortable position and have no cash to move out from that, you would need to take the loans. Because it should help you for sure. I take car loan every year and feel good just because of it.
