    I was at my aunt's place yesterday and she has a Vibrant. I checked her settings and it says 2.1 Update 1. And I was like "wha?" so I ran the "check for updates" thing and it said there were no updates.

    She has a really big problem with missing texts. Sometimes they'll all queue up and she will get them a week or more later with no explanation.

    I heard the 2.2 update fixes that but I can't seem to get it to her phone.

    I've got a Fascinate and it's already up to 2.3.5

    You have to connect her Vibrant to the computer using Kies Mini (you can download it on the samsung website). Once connected to Kies Mini you can update to 2.2. You can not update to 2.2 over the air.

    I am still on 2.1 from laziness. I think i'll finally download Kies and update. How far can I update, is 2.3 out for the Vibrant? Can I go from 2.1 directly to 2.3?

    With Kies you can only upgrade to 2.2 Froyo (and a maintenance update that still keeps it at 2.2) and that's it. If you are willing to root your phone then you can upgrade to Gingerbread (2.3) or even Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.3). Honeycomb 3.0 was never meant for phones only tablets.
