    So, if/when the 2.2 update is officially released by US Cellular, how will I install it. I'm a mac user w/BB Desktop Manager for my BB Curve 8530. Does not seem to be such a means for the Samsung Acclaim.

    Hmm, it may come off a web site and side load to your SD card, then install from there. That would make the most sense to me.

    i was told it is coming but they haven't released a date yet. Like most companies probably trying to find out how to turn off tethering and a few other nice addons so that they force us to pay for it.

    Shouldn't take too long though since the Acclaim uses a pretty vanilla version of android.

    I doubt that blocking tethering would be an issue. US Cellular sells packages for tethering.

    I was in the US Cell store in my area last week and I asked about 2.2 being released basically just wanting to know if and when.

    The rep told me they were looking at sometime in October. He did not give me a specific date.

    Not sure if this was just BS as this wouldn't be the first time a sales rep has lied to me but I am feeling hopeful.

    Casper, this might answer your questions.

    I am excited about native exchange calendar support and the overall speed enhancements as well as the new version of flash that is included in the release. I am excited about flash just because it will expand that amount of streaming video you can recieve on the device.

    When I had my Acclaim in at the store. They told me that it would be a open air release. And it should be an automatic update.

    i was at the us cell store this morning, (basically begging to get rid of the the acclaim dog i have and get something better) and I was told to hang on, that the HTC desire running 2.2 was going to be released on Oct. 10th. not sure if this also means a 2.2 update for the acclaim.

    Talked to a buddy that works at US Cellular. He said that they have a new Samsung Android phone coming out on Oct 27 called the Mesmerize and that it will be running 2.1 also so the 2.2 update will not be before then. And he said it normally takes US Cellular months to release updates that other carriers already have out. He isnt aware of an expected date for 2.2 to come out either.

    Ah figures!

    My son's Sprint EVO got updated with 2.2 almost 2 months ago...

    I just talked to US Cellular Tech Support and was told the Acclaim would NOT be getting the 2.2 update period! I was really pissed as the sales guy who sold me this phone said it would be updated "soon". That was over a month ago.

    I emailed Samsung and they refused to confirm if/when this phone would be updated. In my book, if you aren't even willing to say IF you will update, that pretty much means NO. I replied and told then I would not be buying any more Samsung products if this were the case. I would encourage everyone here to express the same sentiment.

    well I hope that's not the case since I wouldn't have gotten this phone and was told that it will be getting the update.

    Oh well hopefully someone somewhere can give a real response since it wouldn't be the first time a CSR person gave out bad information.

    I work for USC as a service tech and the Acclaim WILL be getting 2.2. As far as a timeframe, all we've been told is before the end of the year but it will be compatible with the Acclaim.

    I don't think it will be an over the air update as USC doesn't do that, so it will most likely be a download off of our website or you can go into a service center to have it done.

    If I here a more concrete date, I will definitely post it here right away.

    I believe that, as of the present, the Evo 4G is the only US Android that has seen an official upgrade to Froyo. I've heard that Google is having some issues with it and therefore has pushed back 2.2 US release. The latest I heard (unofficially) was middle/late November.

    Froyo is on its way!!! We are working diligently to bring you Froyo (Android 2.2) releases for both the Samsung Acclaim and the HTC Desire before the end of the year and, hopefully, in November. Samsung and HTC have not yet released the 2.2 updates to us, but that is expected shortly. We are committed to testing and releasing the software ASAP. Stay tuned for more details in a few weeks

    2.2 update is coming very soon, I promise. And as mentioned earlier, the Acclaim will be able to be updated, you just have to take it to your local corporate store with a repair center and they will get you fixed up :)
