Samsung Moment update now available via PC

Samsung Moment update now available via PC
We recently mentioned an update for the Samsung Moment that was to require you to bring your handset to a Sprint repair center. Well, Sprint has decided to offer the update via your own PC. While the carrier's other Android device, the HTC Hero, has received a few OTA updates for light housekeeping, it seems that Samsung is just not there yet in regards to sending out the upgraded software.

After the update is through, the Moment will still be running Android 1.5. There should be a firmware upgrade to Android 2.1 early in the next quarter. For those who don't keep up to date on these matters, Sprint will send out an SMS that will alert the user to the CL 14 update. Among the changes will be updates to certain third party apps like Visual Voicemail, NFL, NASCAR and Sprint TV. The Emergency Dial on the lock screen will be changed as will the hard reset which will now be available in recovery mode. This update should also improve battery life.

SO this is just a minor firmware update, not a update to 2.1 then?

Your best bet is to do this at home. I've already seen some horror stories on facebook and twitter about Sprint employees messing this up. I've updated several of my own personal Samsung devices this way. Sprint employees lack the training that VZW and ATT receive. Especially Sprint retail, it's a complete joke. For Sprint always go to a corporate store.

rwolf1984 all you do is hate on people. I understand your panties are still in a bundle because you didnt get your miley cyrus tickets on time but like i told you stick to twilight forums. I know your a big wolf fan so you probably stay up late at night watching and reading Twilight till you pass out. You obviously dont like sprint the same way you obviously dont like women. Just stop hating for once.

bigdog805 is the upset hater. His 401K is in the sh!tter cuz he put all of his money in Sprint...lol... According to bigdog if you don't like Sprint you're "gay". We'll most people in the country do not have Sprint. Sprint has the hightest rate of defecters among the US carriers. There must be a lot of people turning gay. Verizon has 88 million customers ATT has 80 T-Mobile has 30. . .So 198 Million people are gay and 50 million on Sprint including bigdog are lucky enough to be straight. I better break my contract and be straight again. . . WTF is Twilight? Obviously its something you are more knowledgable in than me. I got my Miley Cyrus tickets. There's a party in the USA and Sprint subscribers arent invited!! NO SERVICE!!! ROAM!!!
