    @tom....
    download and install the latest version of Kies from samsungapps.com
    On your phone, go to Settings> About phone>USB Settings...
    Select Ask on connection

    After you have downloaded and install \kies, connect your galaxy to your PC with your cable
    The Galaxy will ask how to connect, click "Samsung Kies"
    you should be prompted to upgrade your Firmware within Kies program...just follow instructions from there

    This also depends on where you are living. I am not sure if Froyo is available globally yet.

    is there a setting to get the update from? since its not global, i'm guessing you can set a region to a certain area and get the update?

    IIRC, 2.2 was out in certain parts of europe. So some people with Galaxy S phones got 2.2. But the update was apparently really messed up in some way (slow or something?) so ATT is/was trying to fix it by rolling it out slowly (really slowly).

    This is all things I've read somewhere else in this forum. I'm not sure if it is 100% accurate, but it is what I read.

    Been out for months. Even 2.2.1 is out now. Pretty much all of the bugs have been ironed out already. The GPS bug is a hardware problem, and the rest can usually be solved by a factor reset. AT&T is just being lazy.

    It's out in Europe, Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, India, etc.

    Lol, but ok, to be clear...v2.2 is NOT out in the USA via Verizion. Correct?

    I've been anxiously waiting like many and want to be sure I didn't miss something big like that.
