    Yeah its seems alot snappier. Also I get to use much more apps like LauncherPro. I think the battery life might have improved a little too.

    Just don't get too excited based on emails or comments from some low level tech. or an over-excited fanboi.

    Understand this: There is NO OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM SAMSUNG. They have made official announcements about it for the Galaxy S, but NOT the Spica.

    There are even doubts that the ARM processor in the Spica is sufficient for Flash, which is a key selling point in 2.2.

    If they do decide to put out an upgrade to the Spica, good, but as I said, until they either SAY they are going to do it through an official channel, or actually do it, I am not holding my breath.

    I suggest you don't get too excited yet.

    Frankly, if they do upgrade it, I'll install it quick enough to sell this legacy phone and move onto something else.

    I think Samsung's customer support is a pile of f***ing sh*t.

    So they can confirm development and/or release like 3 and Samsung support have done so when I asked them

    My thoughts exactly. Why would Samsung have to contact "head office"?

    If you're talking to Samsung Support, you should be talking to "head office"!

    Which is why I won't take the word of a couple of low level lackeys.

    why will there be a lot of angry customers samsung have never said that the galaxy lite/spica/pootal was getting 2.2

    im not angry at samsung for not updating to 2.2 i was at t mobile and still am thats why i gave my pootal to my girl friend..the bit that did it for me was when they said that the 2.1 update was not benaffical to our customers what a joke but now they have released 2.1 5 month behind every body else

    i no its called the portal the reason i call it the pootal is because its the way t moblie has treated its customers not a the phone being poo as its a good phone

    Wrong. New PC Studio and Kies are 2 separate suites. Mine came shipped with NPC but it wouldn't detect my phone, and after digging around Samsung's site I found the explanation that I must use Kies. Both suites can be downloaded from their site. Kies does detect my phone but does not detect the modem, so still can't tether.

    Follow my root guide, and by default it installs tethering software.
