    Its true, there is a moment leak floating around, but if thats the official 2.1, then it sucks to own a moment because there are alot of features missing from it.

    sure does look that way....or at least SOME update.

    www.sprint.com/downloads

    go to the Moment and it's got SOMETHING listed, but when I try to open "More Details" nothing happens.

    That's the Hero in Europe they're referring to, not our CDMA version.

    I guess we should know soon, as everyone tries to update their system software. No luck here yet.

    It is not the 2.1 update. It is just a minor update for some issues that are listed on the "more details" page.

    That's what I thought, but he mentions that it's for Sprint. He's probably wrong, but it definitely caught my eye. But is there even an international Moment?

    Ya, but I don't see any news on that either... I think it's a bogus article. I called my buddy who runs a Sprint store, and he said he hasn't heard any news on Moment update in months.

    if you look at the date on the "more details" tab it was released in February. its not the one we are talking about. Someone on the Moment forum said that there is a legit 2.1 update floating around i guess, not the leak. Ill see what i can do once the wife gets home.

    Yes it is out, but it too was a leak. I read about it last night. Sounds like Samsung really didn't put much effort into it though. I am glad I dumped the Moment and went with the Hero. I was just thinking about it though, and you would think if 2.1 were being released for the Hero tomorrow that the stores and other people would know at least by today. Looks like it isn't coming for us this week. Or do you really think that it will get released tomorrow without anyone knowing until tomorrow?

    Hmmmm, it might depend on if it's solely an OTA update. But I'm not even sure if that happens ever. For all I know, it could be months, but the other big rumor says that the Euro Hero is getting it's update on the 16th. It can't be too far out.

    I have a feeling this is not going to be OTA. The Moment update that leaked yesterday is over 100MB. I have a feeling this is going to be OTW or in store only. Of course I have been wrong before, but I just get this feeling...

    Yea, more than likely an update in the store or at home... seeing how big a fiasco the stupid CL14 update was. Ar this point, I honestly think it may be a good choice that I decided to dump the Moment in favor of the Hero...


    This frickin refurbed one I'm on till the hero gets here isn't even up to date with the update, its still running CJ05. Lots of keyboard lag and other issues that tempt me to bring it in so I'm not 100% more pissed than I am already.

    Thank you for contacting Sprint. My name is Maverick M.

    15:39:39 : ​
    Maverick M: May I know on which phone number you want to upgrade to Samsung Moment phone ?

    15:40:53 : XXXXXXXX​
    : Well actually, my question was more aimed at if the upgrade to Android 2.1 was released today. I read an article online stating that it was. That let me to think that the 2.1 upgrade for the Hero can't be long. I was curious if there was any truth to it, and if you had a date available. I'm sure you get this a lot, but I was curious.

    15:42:19 : ​
    Maverick M: OK.Let me check it for you, please stay online.

    15:43:49 : ​
    Maverick M: The date is not declared yet. However, It can be launched ASAP in this month.

    XXXXXXXX: Ohhh, can and probably will, right?

    15:45:05 : ​
    Maverick M: It will be launched ASAP in this month.

    15:45:45 : ​
    XXXXXXXX: Gotcha, well thank you very much for your info. We're looking forward to it. I think that's all I was looking for.

    Especially Maverick from Bangalore.

    It should be obvious that Sprint reps (1st and 2nd levels) are not given such privileged info before anyone else.

    I still like my prediction (in another thread) that the Sprint Hero does not get 2.1 until June.

    I can't argue with that... I didn't mean for this to turn into another psychic forecast thread, but the article was at least a little intriguing... Now that we know it's just another false alarm, we probably don't need the thread any longer. Thanks for the additional info guys!

    The moment needs the update because of all the bugs like randome airplane mode, music pausing, slow games and apps exc.
