    I've seen many people get th new Samsung Exhibit 2 4G update,but my phone didn't tell me about it yet...Hhmm is it because I have to have my phone past 50% to get notified,or Is it because I only use this phone on Wifi (cos i have a blackberry with bbm & data servicew) Do you have to have Data services in order to receive an upgrade notification? Or can I just get it fine on Wifi.

    PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTIONS

    I think the update is rolling out until mid-July. So you may have to wait until then for it to offer an update. I would assume you need to have T-Mobile service to get the update. Maybe or maybe not a data plan. I purchased my phone a couple months ago and I never saw an OTA update.

    If you're impatient like me. You can install the rooted ROM. It works very well. Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G - xda-developers

    I think he/she meant that not everyone gets the update on the same day. People get them at different times up until mid July. So you should get yours by then.

    Your not the only one who didn't get the update. I am still waiting for the update and I can't update through kies because it doesn't support 64 bit computers.

    I updated with Kies on a 64-bit computer. Took a few tries, but I don't remember doing anything special.

    I just learned from family mobile support that they will not provide the 2.3.6 update to my Ex II 4G. T-Moilble doesn't support me and Samsung has no info I could find.
    Are there any other family mobile Ex II 4G users that know if we will be able to get the update?
    My phone has a terrible bug in the text editing and it is almost impossible to use. Back spacing to delete a letter will often get the word repeated and randomly while typing in the 3rd or 4th sentance all the words before the one I am typing will get deleted. I was hoping that this update would fix it. That is not clear from the stuff I read.
    I see references to the updates being rolled out until July 15. Does that mean that it won't be available after July 15? This seems crazy.
    Thanks.

    I hadn't received the update either as of last week so I decided to go to load the Samsung Kies software on my pc and was able to get it that way. I don't remember what site I downloaded it from, but I just googled for it and see a version on Softpedia. I don't think it's the latest version, but after you install it you will be prompted to install the latest version if one is available. One thing to note is that the install requires .NET 4.0 so if you don't have it already installed it will take some time to download and install first.

    You also need the latest USB drivers for the phone, I think they are included in the Kies software but I installed them first separately just to make sure my phone would be recognized. Once you connect with Kies it should tell you there is an update available for your phone and ask if you want to install it.

    Finally got the update! Um...it seems good so far. I think maybe typing is easier. I'll have to work with my phone more before I can really say if it was worth the hype.

    Hey bro this is what you have to do, go to samsung.com/kies and download kies then go through the proccess of installing the software then plug your phone in and it will scan and show that theres an update for you then download run and vialia your done. If it doesnt pick up your phone then toggle debugging mode in settings>application>development> USB Debugging. You should be good after that. Thumbs up:)

    Typing on message boards is definitely easier. Also the screen responds in any position now. Before if it was flat it would not recognize scrolling gestures.

    Just got my update yesterday... doesn't seem to change much to be honest. Maybe a teeny bit quicker, but it was never slow to begin with.

    To the people that updated to 2.3.6...

    Was your phone rooted before updating? Anyone know if we could root after updating to 2.3.6?

    :thinking:

    You can't root 2.3.6 you'll have to install cwm then flash the rooted rom. Which is possible from either version. You'll just lose all of your data.

    This is my understanding at least.

    So, I just got this phone and it's on 2.3.5. Is there an update? The phone says no firmware.
