Post Do i have the latest update for my samsung exhibit 2 4g?

My phone says android 2.3.5 and kernal version 2.6.35.7? If this is not the latest version how can i get it? i just purchased this phone yesterday.

I guess not my friend got the same phone few days ago and i just looked at his and it says android 2.3.6 so how do i get the same update cause everytime i click on software update it says no firmware?

The update needs to be installed via Samsung Kies. If you install the latest Kies from samsung.com and then run it and plug in your phone, it should offer you the firmware update.

If it does not notice your phone being plugged in, you may need to turn off "usb debugging" under settings / applications / development.

I had mine for about a week. After installing Kies on my PC and hooking the phone to the PC, then it automatically offered the update to 2.3.6. I wasn't looking for the update, it just popped up in the notifications on the phone, so I accepted and installed. I haven't really noticed any difference with 2.3.6 but the phone seems stable with its occasional laggy-ness.

That's good news. BTW, there is a new thread today called "a new update" which I believe is a new Samsung update. I followed the link, installed the newest version of Kies for the desktop, and when connecting the phone to the PC with Kies running the firmware update came up automatically. Did the install and now I have Android 2.3.6 with the latest Baseband Version from Samsung T679UVLG3. I have noticed the phone is much more responsive. Scrolling from screen to screen is smoother than before.
