    Today was interesting because I drove to the Best Buy here in the Bay Area to look at the Nexus S and and one of the reps I asked, why is it taking so long for Samsung or Sprint to release Froyo 2.2? He advised me that he heard and read that Samsung is going to skip Froyo 2.2 and release to us Gingerbread 2.3. Which means that we are going to have to wait longer for an update. It would make sense because Froyo 2.2 is getting kind of old now. What do you guys think they should do?

    a few weeks ago a sprint tech support guy told me to go ahead hand put 2.2 on my phone...even told me how to find it! Ala XDA! Put it on... lost the GPS and then went back to 2.1 since the update was gonna come anyway. The Sprint guy did say that he felt that Gingerbread would be the next update for epic and that 2.2 would be skipped....kinda interesting
    Why would a Sprint representative think that Froyo would be skipped in favor of Gingerbread? Samsung has already publically stated on their Twitter page that they are "have made no announcement regarding Gingerbread and are not prepared to discuss it at this time."

    I suppose though it would be possible that Samsung/Sprint are quitely working on doing this.

    Don't listen to a word a rep says, 2.2 has already been released to the carriers so right off the bat he is spouting nonsense.

    Since this discussion has also occurred in the Froyo thread, I'm going to merge it in with that.

    It would only make sense if Gingerbread was ready now.

    That's interesting. I rooted my phone because I was tired of waiting for Froyo, but if a stable Gingerbread ROM/DK comes out I'll definitely try it.

    I would just love to know what takes "4 months" to test ...it can't be that much trial & error. Personally its all about other phone sales being tainted & releasing a new phone to force upgrade. At this point, the last upgrade id be acceptable with & feel like I got my monies worth is if and when we get 2.3 what will be interesting is if they give some lame excuse why 2.3 won't work on the Epic. Yet its cousin the nexus s( same hardware) runs it just fine......so cut the crap & say u don't want to give us 2.2/2.3 & u want us to not cramp sales that's what it boils down to

    Don't think that Sprint has simply been playing with the same Froyo build for the past 4 months. From the leaked builds, we know that in the past two months there has been a new version of Froyo internally released at least every two weeks - and these are just the builds we know of, the updates could have been even more frequent.

    you really have no idea how technology/software/hardware works do you? testing is probably the most time consuming aspect of any project.

    Truly think Sprint is using the Intercept has a test to see how 2.2 runs. This phone gave me no issues until the 2.2 upgrade.
    Just my theory.

    AGAIN....if we just had Vanilla Android, you wouldn't have to test it's compatability and stability with TW and we wouldn't be having these problems....did I mention that yet??? hahaha

    Oh, and I see that the Evo is getting ANOTHER update?? Sure it's just a maintenance update, but how many updates has that phone received?? How many has the Epic received??

    Now THAT'S how you support a phone....you listening, Samsung?!? I knew I made the wrong choice :/

    Have any of you ever actually tested software? It takes a lot more work then one thinks it should. I know, I test software for a living. Plus there is a reason HTC releases so many updates, they are proud of the fact that they have more Android developers than Google does.

    I can't blame ya'll for being ticked off. After the ongoing data lost issues on three Moments, tons of FC's on my Intercept, Samsung will be my last choice for a mobile phone.

    At this point, I really wish they would just skip 2.2... maybe when they were about to push 2.2 a month ago and it "leaked" and they saw the problems... they saw the time to fix it vs. the Nexus S launching and said- lets just go there.

    If we got 2.3 by the end of January, possibly beating other phones in the race to 2.3 perhaps even the mighty EVO by getting Epic to 2.3 1st... I would think in time the wounds would heal and the public would be appreciative...

    What am I thinking? They'd NEVER do that... right?
