    I just upgrade from the samsung behold 2 to the my touch slide. I should get it the end of this week. I'll see if it has the 2.2 update or not. All I know is that anything haas to be better than the piece of crap samsung I've got now.

    from what he posted I believe he is talking about receiving his MT3G-S by the end of the week, not FroYo.

    I rooted my slide. I wonder if I can restore it back to Eclair before the update comes (if it comes).

    Ok no need for anyone to be mean. It was just a clairification, no big deal. But I got my slide yesterday. So far I like it a lot. The only thing throwing me off is the touch pad at the bottom. No 2.2 update on it. Sill just 2.1.

    I hate the touchpad too. Doesn't work as good as a track ball.

    Its a lot more responsive in Cyanogenmod 6. But I hate it too, why not just have a trackball?

    I'm sure it was for looks. Trackball was bulking this is smooth and looks awesome. I'm more used to it now that I've had the phone about a month. And was playing with it on my friends new MT4G, it's much better that phone.

    I hate the sensor pad on this phone. My girlfriend's old phone (cliq xt) had a pad on it like a laptop and worked a lot better.

    I remember mucking around once with a sister's Blackberry Pearl and it had a trackball. I thought it was awesome, and when I saw that this phone had a trackpad, I thought it would be better than her trackball.

    I personally hate the track ball, I've hated it since my old sidekicks, they always collect dust and lint and get stuck and stop working..

    Hey, wait, lets stop there. I'd hate to have this thread hijacked with unrelated comments. And I know there isn't a 2.2 update yet, but lets try to keep things relevant. I'm just saying.

    I contacted T-Mobile support the other day and all they could tell me is that I should have the update by the end of December.

    If they can make this update compelling enough (which I highly doubt), I might even go back to just using stock. But then again... I bet once that happens, ROM development is going to explode. Thats assuming there is an update, and considering T-Mobile's past, I wouldn't be surprised if they backed out.

    Yes T-Mo is highly annoying when it comes to updates for anything. Although I'm a pretty laid back person, I keep the stock stuff and don't download a whole lot, but I do use my email, text, maps and net all the time.

    Yes I agree that T-mobile is indeed annoying when it comes to updates.

    I would download a lot of stuff but the App2sd only lets you put a few to the SD.

    I work for t-mobile and i have to agree that they are taking forever for this update but i can assure you that it is on the way. I also just had an HTC rep come through telling me the update will "be out by the end of the year" which is what he always told me since way back when i got my Slide (june).

    Forget Froyo...

    Nexus S here I come!

    Sure it's a Sammy :( but its stock android and comes out of the box with 2.3.

    Glad I didn't fall for the Mytouch 4G :D
