So in a Twitter, Samsung promised that ALL Galaxy S phones in the US would have the Froyo update. Is is now 2011 and we still have not received Froyo on the Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile. The twitter was made October 21 2010 by an official account of Samsung.
Now they are releasing the Samsung Vibrant Plus 4G that will come with Vibrant and the only difference between the two phones is that the new phone has HSPA+ chip in it plus a Front Facing Camera.
I was told when I bought the phone that I would have Froyo within months of it’s release. That was in the middle of July 2010. 6 months later I still don’t have Froyo on my phone.
Samsung is releasing tablets and phones with Froyo and there is NO REASON they could not release it on the original Samsung Vibrant.
I was also told when I was going to return the phone within my allotted return period, that there would be an upgrade out that would take care of my GPS issue. Got the upgrade and my GPS is still not working as it should.
Samsung has lied, over and over again and it is time for them to make it up to their customers or I will tell everyone I see and ask for my opinion on what phone to get or other hardware. I will tell them that Samsung should not be trusted.
Edit: Per request from other Galaxy S owners in the USA. This is not just a Samsung Vibrant model SGH-T959 issue but none of the Samsung Galaxy S phones have been updated to Froyo in the USA.
Second thing. GPS is not working properly out of box. When going to return it to T-mobile in my case, I was told an update would come out to fix it. It did not fix my issue. This problem also exist on Verizon’s Fascinate, Sprint’s Epic 4G and AT&T’s Captivate.
If you own any of the phones and are tired of 1) not having the promised Froyo update or 2) Not a working GPS or 3) were told that the update/fix would come soon, please sign.
