    over what? a typo? Every company in the world protects frivilous lawsuits about stuff it puts into print with the following (which, incidently, comes directly from Samsung's legal disclaimer):

    Not like that would be frivolous litigation at all. That sure will fix things.

    This thread is funny.

    The only reason I want Samsung to release Froyo (and source code) for the Captivate is so ROM developers can start rebasing their ROMs on the new software. Screw Samsung lol :p

    This tread has turned into a halarious one. I love it. Keep it comming!

    Rep: "So with froyo showing on website, you want phone to have it?"

    Me: "Umm yeah, isnt that why the hell you put it on the site, to let customers know that the phone comes with froyo? Thats a make or break deal."

    Rep: "The Captivate will come with Android Operating System 2.1. The Website shows correct format."

    [​IMG] Please wait for a Samsung Agent to respond.
    [​IMG] You are now chatting with 'Kevin'
    [​IMG] Red text is my personal annotations on the convo
    Kevin: Hi, thank you for contacting Samsung Technical Support. How may I help you today?
    Visitor: Hi, I have a question about the Captivate, which I am planning on getting but do not yet own. Is that k?
    Which is true, I don't own it yet and am planning to.
    Kevin: Okay.
    Kevin: Please go ahead with your query.
    Visitor: The page for the Captivate says that it comes with Android 2.1, which is fine, but that it's upgradable to 2.2. Will I be prompted to upgrade whenever I first start the phone, or how will that work?
    Kevin: I understand that you want to know Android 2.2 version will get updated once turn on phone. Am I correct?
    Kevin: I mean when you purchase the Captivate phone.
    Visitor: Yeah, or if not, how the update can be obtained. Do I dl it form the downloads page?
    Visitor: from*
    Hooray for feigning ignorance.
    Kevin: Thank you for confirming.
    Kevin: I am glad to assist you.
    Visitor: :D
    Kevin: Captivate phone comes with Android 2.1 version.
    Visitor: right
    Kevin: I apologize, the Android 2.2 upgrade software is not yet released for users in U.S officially at this moment.
    Visitor: ? Then when will it be out?
    Kevin: We are unable to speculate when/if a software revision might be available due to the fact that this might lead to inaccurate information and confusion.
    As if I hadn't read those EXACT words over 9000 times before? >.>

    Kevin: Should this become available, it will be posted on our website in the Samsung Download Center.
    Visitor: Could you hold on for a sec?
    Kevin: As android2.2 is about to release that is the reason it has been posted in the samsung website with features.
    Kevin: Sure.
    Visitor: So it's going to come out soon though?
    Kevin: Yes.
    Visitor: I hear that it'll increase performance by 450%, so that's good,
    Visitor: but you said "inaccurate information and confusion" before right?
    Visitor: That it could be caused if anyone knew the actual release date?
    Kevin: Actually, on the Samsung website it is mentioned as Captivate comes with Android 2.2.
    Kevin: Now it is with Android 2.1 only.
    WTF are you trying to say? That it comes with both 2.1 and 2.2?!
    Kevin: That's the reason I mentioned as you might get confused.
    I sure as hell am confused now, I'll give you that.
    Kevin: As android2.2 is about to release that is the reason it has been posted in the samsung website with features.
    Even though they already undid it so that isn't even right. He's wrong about something that was a mistake in the first place, TIME PARADOX
    Kevin: Once the update has been released by the Carrier people you will receive a notification message to install it on your handset.
    "Carrier people"? ROFL
    Visitor: Oh. Actually, would you mind if I sent a link to a picture which I find interesting on the matter?

    The quality of Samsungs products is outstanding. But there service for it is horrible. Get english speaking reps when dealing with English USA customers. lol

    What are you all trying to prove by busting a low level cs agents balls? And it's amusing how you mock his English when yours isn't that much better.

    We get it, they give canned responses. Welcome to live support, they don't give any specific information and only vague answers. We have only known this for years...

    yes sir! Wait till the official froyo comes out then the webpages with flash should be less choppy.

    I apologize, I didn't mean to be rude. Just busting their balls won't do much. They won't give any information for a reason. Using logic against them won't change that.
