    better late than never i guess. it seems to me this phone is the forgotten android. VZW doesn't advertise it, LG's reluctant to support it, and only the dev community seems to give a damn about it. i love my ally, but i'm absolutely disgusted about how long LG has been dragging it's feet on this. phones released well after the ally already have froyo. why are we the red-headed stepchildren of the android world?

    So many people around here simply do NOT understand how business works.
    Once a product has been released for sale by a vendor (VZW in this case) ALL updates MUST be approved by the vendor, and the vendor decides WHEN the updates take place. Even if LG had the update ready months ago, VZW decides WHEN it will be released.
    We all know VZW has a heavily biased love of it's "flagship" like of Androids in the "Droid" line and others like the Fascinate. IMO-the Ally was too good for it's intended "place" in the product line, and was cutting into the sales of the Droid 2 because of the keyboard's FAR better function, and MUCH lesser price. So, VZW accelerated LG's release of the Vortex (basically an Ally minus a keyboard), and left the Ally's Froyo update sitting "on the back burner" for awhile so they could sell more of the Motorola Droid 2's.

    I was reading some things and I saw one major limitation...LIMITED FLASH...

    For anyone who does not know what this means, this means that we won't be able to view everything that requires flash. I am guessing that flash games will be something we won't be able to do.

    Likely it will not have flash at all. So far Adobe is not willing to support this architecture (including the Ally and the Palm Pixi).

    Couldn't agree more. Release of the 2.2 update well after the Holiday shopping season to minimize the the cut into high end Android sales.

    I don't see how much longer they're going to keep supporting the Ally. My original Ally got stuck in a boot loop last Sunday, took it to my local VW brick and mortar, and they don't even stock them there anymore. Replacement had to be overnighted to me.

    Well, considering you can still order them new from the website, I'd say they'll keep supporting them until they have no more warrantied units out there.
    Like I've said so many times before..VZW stores love to upsell to the "Droid" line. More profit margin=larger commission.

    After my second Omnia II started acting up this morning, I called Verizon and switched to the Ally. One of the first things I wondered about was an upgrade to 2.2. I'm glad to see it's coming soon :D

    Great forum, btw!

    Meh, I'd rather not wait, but as long as FROYO comes, in a reasonable time, I'll be a satisfied customer. I hope Verizon and LG don't begin to neglect this phone. It really is a promising piece.

    Yea, got my official update this morning. I am now running Froyo 2.21 on my 2 LG Ally's! Nice to be able to move apps to the SD card.

    Too bad Verizon charges another $20.00 a month with a 2GB limit to use it:(
