Samsung Intercept gets second crack at Android 2.2 upgrade

Samsung Intercept gets second crack at Android 2.2 upgrade
As we reported last month, some owners of the Samsung Intercept found that their phone was bricked following an attempt to upgrade the device to Android 2.2. Now, we have received an anonymous tip from someone whose buddy's Samsung Intercept could not upgrade to Froyo as recently as last week. When the pal tried to upgrade his Intercept today he was successful. The bottom line is that the owner of the phone now feels like his unit is 10 times better since the upgrade.

If you are one of the unlucky Samsung Intercept owners still waiting for Android 2.2, don't pout if you didn't receive the new OS today. With our tipster getting this info from his friend, your best bet is to call Sprint and check to see when your own phone is expected to receive the download..

Thanks anonymous tipster!

why are you telling them to call sprint? We wont know when the customer will get the upgrade, they are pushed automatically in waves, they should get it by this weekend.

I called Sprint and they were arguing with me that the phone was upgraded. I swore to them that it was not upgraded. It is sad that outsiders know more than the salespeople and phone support at these companies.

"It is sad that outsiders know more than the salespeople and phone support at these companies." Correction: It is sad that outsiders know more than SOME salespeople and phone support at these companies. Notice the SOME in that?

People were posting all kinds of issues with Android 2.1 on Sprint Samsung Intercept. However, after Froyo (Android 2.2) upgrade there are no comments/compliants. I am looking for any kind of feedback from people who are using Sprint Samsung Intercept with Froyo. Could people please post something?
