    do you all remember the samsung giveaway last year in november 2009? where samsung was giving away thousands of behold 2's every single hour of the day? i just thought about why they gave away so many bh2's, because of the fact that they knew they weren't gonna release a 2.x update for the device. so they decided to have a giveaway and just give us a phone that they just happen to create without caring about improving it. and although i was one of the lucky ones to receive a free behold 2, i was glad and just knew that it was a matter of time before the bh2 would get a 2.x update. i feel so digusted towards samsung for doing this. it was a very low down dirty dog thing of them to do. i hope they lose money and realize what they have done and how many people they have disappointed. :mad:

    Just thought of that huh? Well many share that thought as it has been commented on several times in threads discussing the lack of updates/support for the behold2.

    Yea I won mine in the beholdgiveaway as well. I'm pretty sure Samsung knew this phone was a disaster from the get go

    It was still a lot better than the original Behold that I had previously so I wasn't complaining.

    I got my behold 2 because i had so many problems with my old handset (samsung T-749 highlight) that it had to be replaced that T-mobile "upgraded" me to this crappy a** phone so I got it for $10 pretty much.

    its a huge improvement over the highlight...you really shouldn't be complaining at all!! you didn't buy it it was given to you. i'm sorry to be a prick but get over it. a lot of us actually paid top dollar and have a right to be pissed. you didn't pick the phone you didn't buy the phone...YOU GOT A FREE UPGRADE! you should be happy.

    No not really. My highlight never formatted its SD card by itself the screenlock always worked and did not require a $30 dollar data plan.

    How is it I have no reason to complain but the ones that won one do?

    Furthermore I was offered the Blackberry 9700 too but took the behold 2 instead because it seemed more tech advanced and was promised a 2.X update by the salesmen so i took it.

    Everyone IMO has a right to complain. He may not have paid for it, but he still owns one. IMO it's worse for the people that paid top dollar for it, I think I paid around 300 or something with a contract extension.

    that is simple...THEY DON'T! as i have said before it is not illegal to promote a buggy phone, or give it away! it is illegal to deliberately mislead paying consumers.

    I paid $170 to upgrade to the Highlight plus $20 for every time it was replaced (4 times) for shipping plus another $50 (with shipping) to upgrade to the Behold 2 less than 2 months later dumping the accesories I had for the highlight ($20 gel case and $15 car charger).

    So in a span of 2 months I spent over $300. And I can't complain?

    This phone doesn't require a data plan... that is 100% optional.

    The only way I could get the Behold 2 is to lock in the data plan for 2 years at $25 a month (grandfathered in) so that is $600 that I will pay for the outdated android over the next 2 years.
