Default just got a message...

from ATT saying: AT&T FREE MSG: AT&T is providing a free update for your phone. When asked to install the update, please select OK. Thank You.


i received this same message twice tonight, once, and then again after i didn't respond. froyo? maybe?

i checked for updates and it didn't say there was none, it said that i needed to check again in 24 hours...so i dunnnnnnoooo...

here's to hoping?...and here's to optimism? (which i realize is a hard thing to keep in a Samsung Captivate forum sometimes, but i'm trying!)

That's a sign they are trying to head off an overloaded server.

I wouldnt be so enthusiastic to download it yet. Remember the recall for froyo recently? I'd be hesitant to quickly switch over when the update is available. I'd give it a good couple of months to get reviews and see what kind of bugs I'll be getting myself into before I make the final decision.

Just for fun, went into settings and did a manual update...

"Software update. Communication in progress." and it spins for about 3 minutes now.

The notification bar states "connecting to DM server..."

UPDATE---

"Unable to connect to ATT server"

*sigh*

Don't want to wait for 24 hours to be disappointed? You can be disappointed as many times as you wish within a 24 hour period. See one of my contributions to CapFAQ:

Software Updates - CapFAQ

Requires a rooted device.

I'm certainly hoping. But I've got a google alert set up for "Froyo Captivate" and I haven't gotten anything except the news article about the Epic 4G getting froyo before us (). Maybe it was a glitch (Someone please prove me wrong!)

It'll be interesting to see if anyone else in these forums has gotten a text message from AT & T. I bet it's just an anomaly but you never know...

Folks have been getting the very message from AT&T for the past two (or more) months. Every time someone gets this message, they jump on it and post about it, asking if it is Froyo, and how they hope it is Froyo, and others say how they hope it is too...

And it isn't... it never is. As many have stated... if/when Froyo is available for the Captivate, it won't be announced by some Tom, Dick or Harry on a message board through a text from AT&T.

We've all seen the text before.

Instead, why don't you let everyone know what your current version of OS is running on your phone...

Ive never received a text from att. Even for the last official update. I would expect that when its ready it will roll out some people get texts and I check here just like I did last time.

Well, engadget reports that the samsung EPIC is expected to get froyo on the 26th, so hopefully this is the update we've all been waiting for.

I think it's fairly safe to say that when 2.2 comes out for the Captivate, it's going to be announced in a 100 other places and the news spreading like wildfire long before anyone on this forum gets some sort of unexpected notification on their phone.

It's difficult to just have faith when you're on AT&T. Those other phones aren't.

Are you guys all doing an OTA check? WHen I first got my phone 4-6 weeks ago, one of the first things I did was to check for an update. Well, it failed and bricked my phone. It had to go back to Samsung and I had to wait over a week to get it back. I'm a little hesitant now on checking for those updates.

Why do I keep seeing visions of Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown whenever I read this forum? Keep hitting that over the air check guys, I'm sure Froyo is coming any minute now.

As others have pointed out, I'm sure the Captivate getting Froyo would be headline news on this site and in this forum.

Got the message a few days ago. Today I force checked for an update, and an update downloaded! But it failed to install (rebooted and tried to update, but "update is failed")

I'm already running JH7 stock.
