    Does anyone think it will be here before the Hero's release on the 9th? I think not... Plus they won't launch it before the 1st when they would have to do a full uninstall/reinstall of the NFL Live and Sprint Football Live software.

    Look for it at the end of April.

    Maybe, Samsung Moment users are getting Android 2.1 first due to compliant of bugs in Android 1.5. It makes sense because I was having problems with this phone till I rooted it.

    The latest rumor I've heard floating around is that it's going to come out on the date that Sprint states it's coming out.

    haha, well from what I have been seeing, that is not very accurate either. :p

    Doesn't seem like anyone can nail a date down, ask the Droid users how Verizon is doing with it. lol

    Which is exactly why Sprint is keeping quiet about a release date until they know it's ready.

    I remember a Sprint employee mentioning the Verizon thing over on the Buzz about wireless forums.

    I have a friend who knows a guy who's cousin's, sisters, mothers nephew who picks in the garbage at a abandoned Sprint store found a memo stating the following:





    Due to the incredible demand and expectations of our current customer base we will be upgrading the Samsung Moment to our
    SUPER SECRET VERSION

    Android 3.8675309
    This version of Android will be delivered OTA (over the air) by flying monkeys.
    This version will carry with it many new features and add-ons such as
    A newer version of the Bejeweled DEMO.
    Complete with nag screen at every unlock.
    Super Ultra Multi Touch.
    So you can use all your fingers at once
    Flash Ultra Non-functional Edition
    Let's really bog this thing down

    More to be revealed at release date.


    :rolleyes:

    I have both the hero and moment and I rooted my hero and the guys over at pda found the Sprint 2.1 real and we now have a stable Sprint 2.1 Rom. I think that if the Samsung community could evolve like the HTC community did you guys wouldn't have to keep speculating and waiting on Sprint for updates.

    No way that's OTA.
    And I think they're calling their new all-fingers support: tickle-touch with google giggles. Sergey told me.

    Haha...Sorry bud. Even that is wrong. If the next update is anything like the last then it is almost guaranteed to be out before they announce it :D

    Hmmm... lets see.

    1- You have a consumer base that gets piss poor support from you. These consumers are vocally outspoken to as many people as possible about how their phones need an update. This kind of negativity dissuades further customers from purchasing your product...
    Q. In response, do you allocate more resources to fix the problem? Or allow them to continue to promote bad publicity for your product?

    2- You have a consumer base that gets piss poor support from you. These consumers shut up and take it when they do not get any support. There is no negative publicity, and in fact, the deafening silence may lead you to think that there isn't even a problem in the first place...
    Q. In response, do you allocate costly resources to fix a problem that is not effecting you in any negative way? Or do you just let it slide, and divert resources from that product to another with a huge outcry from that consumer community?

    I understand that you are viciously advocating for option #2. But WHY?:thinking:
    Unless you are a masochist, you should do what is in your best interest...



    So to everyone that is bitching about people bitching, why are you trying to harm our community? Do you really expect, that in response to negative publicity, a business will quickly release an even worse product to appease consumers (and thus cause FURTHER outcry)?

    Or would that business divert resources from programming the bada (or whatever the hell it's called) in order to get the good product produced even sooner and thus halt the negative outcry (or more likely, encourage positive support)?

    Assuming this business is a successful one (doesn't even need to be the #1 seller in the US). They WILL understand this concept, and WILL choose the latter. So instead of bitching about people bitching, please join us and let Samsung know that this crap is unacceptable! I am the squeaky wheel and I want my MOTHER F&#($&@ GREASE!:cool:

    Yeah, so this ATS tech's confirmation of 3/31 is anymore valid than that other ATS tech's confirmation of 3/26? lol

    @drooooid - Dude... Seriously...? A newbie posts that the update is coming the 31st and you post that as "Official Confirmation?"

    Good call...

    PS - This is still a complete rumor, but I have heard that the Hero update is all but confirmed for the 9th as a repair center only install (OTW supposedly coming 4/16.) This will be followed the Friday (4/23) for the repair center only update for the Moment with no OTW date yet. I believe that this is due to the fact that they don't want to overload their resources on 2 simultaneous updates. Again, no solid to back up the dates yet, but it sure seems to make sense.

    So we are supposed to believe you, then when everyone is all on standby for the entire day and then the day passes, you will be there at midnight to post "April Fools":mad:

    I continue to not believe you

    I was planning on washing my hair Wednesday, so a 2.1 update would be inconvenient. If everyone doesn't mind, I'd like to reschedule to either Thursday 4/29 @ 4:30PM or Tuesday 6/22 @ 3:00PM. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Sprint employees (no matter who they are, even the moment 2.1 test group) know less about sprint's workings and when stuff is going to be released then the average joe who reads blogs and forums...
