    Sorry ifthis had been posted before but,
    I was talking to a telus representative and he was all excited saying that android 2.2 is coming out for telus within next month... I'm not sure if he was saying this month or not, since I asked on the 31st of may lol

    Should be end of June if what I've been reading around the web is correct

    Good to hear. But the question is: Will it actually happen?
    I know they just sent me my e-mail about 2.1 last week, good thing I've been using the Thai version of 2.1 for months otherwise I'd be out of the loop.

    Why are you still using Thai 2.1 when you can use Telus 2.1?

    I've all ready cleared off the unwanted stocks apps and have done some theme mods. It's stable. No need to fix something that's not broken. Plus at this point will likely end up flashing it completely when a 2.2 comes out.

    I've read it won't be until late September at the soonest.

    That sounds more realistic to me.

    No way by end of the month maybe end of august. Google has yet to release 2.2 to OEMS yet as they aren't finished working on it. Until the Nexus One gets the OFFICIAL 2.2 release then don't keep yourself guessing

    Will the Milestone support 2.2 when it is released? I heard from a Telus rep that it may not work.
    Any thoughts?

    If they release it, it will support it. That rep you were talking to is an idiot. I spoke with a rep this week and 2.2 came up (they actually said "there is an upgrade available", but it was 2.1). He was saying that roughly 3 weeks ago their internal sources said that the Milestone will receive 2.2 in a future release, and to advise customers of such if they (we) ask. However, there was no date.

    Motorola has said that the milestone will get it, but didn't specify if Telus Milestone will. Our hardware is more than able to handle it. Hell, the HTC Dream (G1) can do it.
    mixpix and mehras1991 like this.

    Thanks for the info!

    I really like the Milestone, I'm just afraid if I pick this phone up a Droid X or Milestone 2 will come out soon!

    Just read on Droid life website. A marketing chief from Motorola responded to Milestone users on Motorola Europe facebook.He says that the decision to go for Froyo for Milestone is still pending.Users will be informed once the decision is made.
    Looks like the odds are 50-50.
    Hope we get Froyo....

    Good job they didn't put a locked bootloader on the Milestone, so the community can implement it's own 2.2 ROM if Motorola decide not to...

    Oh, wait.... :mad::rolleyes:

    ...I REALLY feel like an idiot. Unlike a lot of you, who bought your phones early in the production, I just got mine last week. I factored in the buzz at the time, which was the Milestone would receive the update along with the droid, and the fact that I had to pay a premium price ($149 Cnd.) on a THREE year contract! ...for a dead end phone!!

    There...my Consumer Sheep rant is over. I feel better.

    Despite the above, I love my Milestone. It does everything I need and more. Ya, I'll never see moving-Flash pics when I'm browsing, but oh well, lesson learned.;)

    I thought the kernel was the only locked part? I thought we could do whatever we wanted so long as we used Motorola's kernel.

    Motorola's Kernel isn't perfect, but if it means we can implement 2.2 on top of it even if we lose cool features (like wifi tethering) then **** it, lets do it.

    Dude...I did the EXACT SAME thing you did...and I'm PISSED about it!

    Just did the same thing, except I purchased mine O.O.C., so I paid $668, not $149. Meh, shit happens. 2.1 works fine, except the stupid music player starting up whenever it feels like.

    Regardless, I wouldn't hold my breath on Telus. They are notoriously the slowest carrier in the history of telecommunications to push out updates for ANY phone..

    If you're talking about Telus, we're not getting the Droid X, and the Milestone 2 won't be for at least a few months after the Droid 2 comes out (there hasn't even been a confirmed Milestone 2 yet anyways)...

    ...we must remember that Motorola hasn't said no. They are probably just hedging their bets to see how much outcry there is. Whether or not we finally do get the 2.2, we still have a pretty neat phone/gadget that is rootable.

    But ya, I'm still ticked.:mad::eek:

    I don't see why. You have the option to sell your phone for a lot more than you paid for it, and get something else. Or wait for the Desire. Or whatever. $149 really isn't that much in the phone world. Yes, three year contracts suck but whatever. If you don't like it, sell your phone, use the money to buy a different one O.O.C.

    I just wish there was a fix for the damn microphone fluctuation during calls. Some calls I'll be crystal clear, others I get "I can't hear you!" and that's really, really frustrating coming from a BlackBerry that managed to make calls - with extreme clarity even in loud conditions - with the speakerphone directly behind the microphone.
