    Hi does anyone know when the Android 2.2 update will be available for the Samsung Intercept? I read somewhere that the Samsung Moment will not get it, but the Intercept will.

    that is what the sprint store salesperson also said. I have searched the interwebs and have not found any information for it either.

    This is what I've heard as well from Sprint. It's supposed to be getting 2.2, just not for a couple months yet.

    There's no release date yet but it has Sprint blessing (which should solve the question). My best guess would be 4Q or 1Q 2011. Remember this phone just hit the streets in July.

    Now regarding the updates, it will be wireless OTA (over the air). You will be prompted or you can use the update feature in the Settings - About menu.

    I'm wondering about this too. I just got the Intercept and would love to upgrade to 2.2.

    I should be getting mine today. If not today by friday. Has the update for 2.2 come in yet?

    I used to have a Cliq with 1.5, so 2.1 (or 2.2) would be a huge improvement!!

    I have still seen no word on when the update will be coming. I have been waiting for it for months and will be pissed if they never release it.

    I was just checking on the Sprint site and under the features for Intercept it says 2.2 and not 2.1!!?? Maybe that means the update is near??!!

    The sprint website says the Intercept comes with 2.2, but the Virgin Mobile site says it has 2.1. It may be they are in the process of upgrading their inventory.

    I just ordered the droid intercept and the Virgin mobile site states that it is on the Android 2.1 platform.
