    I had heard on the Hero that HTC ported the CDMA code from 1.6 to 1.5. Maybe Samsung did something similar and that parts were compatible with 2.1? No matter what- I'm having awesome CDMA performance with 2.1.. better signal, 3x the data speed than I got with 1.5!

    I'm lost lol. From the videos I've seen, this looked about as close to 2.1 as you can get... detailed explanation?

    Probably a core file that the Sprint modified for 1.5 to be used on CDMA, since it's listed as GSM.

    Doesn't matter, we are running 2.1 still. The kernel is a 2.1 kernel, the apps are 2.1 apps, it's 2.1. Really it doesn't matter, if not updating this doesn't effect the real performance of the phone, just signal strength and consistency it looks like. I never had any real issues with it, but it would probably have better signals and strength since 2.1 can be used natively on CDMA. Although that's probably where the builds that were leaked are incomplete in.

    this is starting to make me wonder if samsung/sprint is working "hard" on 2.1 or not. If they havent updated the ril files how long does that take? Or maybe they placed these rils and a temporary "filler" while they worked on a updated one. Any ideas?

    Truth be told, as much as I like my Moment I don't think that Samsung ever meant this phone to be their Android killer. The way it looks, it seems that the Moment is the stepping stone to Android from Samsung, their trial and error device. That, or Samsung isn't serious about Android. Instead they're just hopping on the band wagon. I mean come on, just from the start the Moment used a core system that doesn't technically support CDMA. The Behold 2 on T-mobile has a Samsung UI on top of Android. HTC has sense. The Moment, has stock Android. But that's the beauty of it as well. That's all this phone was made to be, expand the Android market on a CDMA carrier. And also have a qwerty keyboard. Even though the Phone isn't 100% updated, even on 1.5 a lot of people still voted it over the Droid. Yet the Droid has had Android 2.0 since stock, has a bigger screen, and the resolution is massive.

The Samsung Moment was one of the first Android Phones with a slideout keyboard.
