    No more proof than all the other phone that have gotten 2.1 already. They could still argue that the specific component/components in this phone aren't compatible. That would be a lie, but they could claim it.

    This kind of shit just has the effect of dispelling the complacency brought on by BH_MAN's Galaxy ROM (and others) ... It brings the "eff YOU Samsung!" back into play. I want the MT3G or Galaxy S for free now ...

    People,

    Understand that Samsung has to figure out how to make its TouchWiz interface work with any further update of Android, and quite frankly, whoever invented touchwiz was a dumb ass.


    This is how samsung will keep the behold II from being able to get the update, by claiming that the twiz interface is not compatible with android 2.0 (or 2.2).

    The only way to win any case here, is to get the behold II running on android 2.o with twiz interface.

    but samsung wont release any source code, nor can we get the 2.0 source code.

    Not quite, because the galaxy s has touch wiz. They could claim that the twiz for 2.x wouldnt run on the bh2. That might even be true. I that were true, I say they should do a vanilla update (possibly option, maybe people really like touch wiz). That won' happen, but it would be nice. (and just about everyone on here would agree that would be an improvement anyway:) )

    As I see it, the lunatic in the video promised us android 2.x...he didn't mention touch wiz coming with it :)

    I just can't understand how people are saying "fine, I'll give Samsung a last chance" or "the Galaxy S will be a 'flagship' phone, it will not be left behind".

    There are so many good phone options out there and in the end the Galaxy may have a slight hardware advantage but there's no way in hell I'd give Samsung another dime....$450 is enough I think.

    Dumped mine on Craigslist last weekend. The guy that bought it basically threw the money and ran like he took advantage of me!

    I got the MT3GS over 1 week ago and quite honestly love it. Samsung really made some serious blunders with the BH2 phone... I will NEVER buy another Samsung phone again because of this.

    I hope Tmobile learned a lesson from this... The phone had some serious potential too, what a shame!!

    The Galaxy S is running TouchWiz 3.0 while the BH2 is running TouchWiz 2.0. So yeah they could say the current TW2.0 isn't compatible with Android 2.X might be a true statement.

    I asked them again about upgrades, nothing new, but I thought the 2nd paragraph was interesting:

    When I asked them about at lease release the source code for the drivers I got:

    Well...I've referred this issue to someone at The Consumerist, and they said they would look into it. That being said, I don't know if we'll get any more visibility put out on this. Hopefully, "something" will give, and Samsung will come out and "do the right thing". In the meantime, I think I licked the battery life issue I was having, and so the BH2 is at least stable ( even with the occassional FC ), for the time being.

    Yea it does suck for the Behold II

    With that said, I'm glad I jumped ship to the mytouch 1.2 and not the Cliq back in Feburary. :D

    When I was in tmobile last week paying off the money I owed on the behold2 the rep said he had heard that samsung was going to give all behold 2 original owners $50-100 off their next phone(im assuming a samsung phone) he the added it could be just a rumor, but thats what i heard.

    I'll believe it when I see it. And for that matter....why exactly would I want to upgrade to a Galaxy S ? Will it be upgradeable to Froyo ? I can't imagine Samsung would have their FLAGSHIP handset not have something ( and I mean no direct disrespect to any of it's owners here ) that the by ALL accounts, dated MyTouch 3G has ?

    I can't see how they could stand to see MT3G's to have 2.2, and their primo handset.....Hummingbird processor equipped, pixel-chomping monster of a processor, forward-facing camera equipped, TWiz 3.0 packin' handset...NOT be upgradeable.

    Samsung.....here's a clue....do the RIGHT THING. Give people what they want. Deliver what they need. That's how you get repeat business.
