So T-Mobile, When You Said Froyo Was “Coming Soon” for the Galaxy Last Dec. 2nd Did You Mean in Dog Years or Human Years?
Update: Apparently there is an actual update at this point, but you can only update doing a manual Kies update on your phone and only with a PC. I’m not sure why T-Mobile won’t push this out as an OTA upgrade or at least let us use a Mac. Trying to get the update software installed on a work PC as I don’t own a personal Windows machine anymore and our household has gone 100% Mac.
There is a comment in the comments section blaming Samsung for trying to charge T-Mobile for the upgrade, but Michael Gartenberg sent me a tweet over on twitter saying that this has been debunked by Samsung a while ago and that they don’t charge carriers for upgrades. This still leaves me scratching my head wondering who is to blame for such crappy customer service, Samsung or TMobile.
Update #2: I’m now running Froyo on my Samsung Galaxy Vibrant. It was a royal PITA. I made the mistake of following the link above which had me download Kies 2. Turns out Kies 2 won’t recognize this phone. So instead I had to download Kies Mini (which did recognize my phone). I had to do this all on a PC as there is no Mac version. Kies mini after three tries finally recognized my device and I was able to update it. An awful lot of trouble and work, but I am actually running Froyo now.
