A convert


Just landed on the forum. Thanks to whoever set it up.

Been a Windows Mobile user since 2003 (went through Smartphone 2002 & 3, Pocket PC 2003, WM5, WM6, WM6.1) and decided to take the plunge and get an Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S II).

Love the thing so far; it's effing great.

Sorry to start with a question, but I have one. Is there a way to update to 2.4.4 via the phone's own menu system? I got the phone yesterday and thought I'd found an option to update. Today I can't remember where that option was and I've scoured the menus with a fine-toothed comb.

I know next to nothing about the phone so far but am experiened in updating my many HTC phones/pocket PCs with official and non-official roms (and a number of my own making) so if I have to go down the manual route of downloading a ROM and flashing it I will. I'm just keen to stick with easy and official options for now until I've read a bit more and really got to know the device.

the official way to update OTA is this (btw, I've never heard of 2.4, much less 2.4.4... the latest and greatest for android phones is 2.3.4... If that was a typo, then sorry. I just wanted to make sure you weren't misinformed.)
from your homescreen, hit menu, settings. go to about phone (at the bottom of the settings menu. hit system updates, then check for updates.


Welcome to Android Forums and I hope you are enjoying your new Galaxy. I hope these forums will help you get the max enjoyment from your new phone.
