    The only way to update the Spica is to use the PC Suite that came with your phone. install it and just wait =]. the suite is pretty useless for anything else but update.

    Once your on the PC Suite, you will see a button saying

    Firmware update.. when the update is out we can use that. Or talk to someone in a 3 store but the only other way is to send it off and i dont think you would want that XD

    new pc studio will not work with 2.1 only 1.5 so you will have to use kies to update the phone

    Nope, no 2.1 in the UK on t-mobile.... 3 got it out of the box, but everyone else is still stuck on cupcake. So you can see why we are skeptical about your post. It's all a wait and see.

    Samsung admits that the Spica cannot be used with Kies (mine doesn't get recognised) so I don't know how we will get the update

    This is direct from Samsung site

    229707. Galaxy Spica i5700 and New PC Studio
    New PC Studio is not meant for Galaxy Spica. This model runs on Android OS and it is not compatible with the New PC Studio. At the moment, for file transfer, you will need to use the Mass Storage option. Please ensure that there is a memory card in the phone. When you connect the phone to PC

    Im loving how many people, non members included are viewing this topic.

    Its all looking good for Spica users but this could and probably will be the last update the Spica shall get. but who knows. its got a pretty good CPU for a lower end Android.

    Please tell me where it is and why id care about that.

    You can believe me or not but in the end it looks like you will be wrong.

    Samsung as confirmed that 2.2 is in development for both Galaxy S and Spica.

    I'm in Canada, with Rogers, and I got the Spica. They probably don't have it up on their site anymore.

    I'm still waiting on 2.1 from Rogers (I bit the bullet ages ago and Odin'd for it anyways).

    I'm not going to hold my breath for 2.2.....

    hey RavenSavior, did you contact Samsung with this issue just by going to Samsung.ie, then Support section and Contact us, or something along those lines?

    if you're right, I'll buy you a Galaxy S!!! :D The really big deal? - Google Voice Actions (2.2 only) -> speak into your phone: "Text.. Paul.. I'll meet you there at 2pm", and it sends that text just from your voice command!
