Koulang, 06 Jan 2011There is still no fireware update to Froyo? finding out how bad samsung is at updates...
Reading tones of posts how this is a recurring problem with samsung. Will not buy samsung again - switching to HTC
Shankar its not for India.....in India international version is available Galaxy I9000 which has front facing cam for video calling
Why there is no Video call option. Dont samsung guys aware that Video call is now very cheap in India???
I can confirm that after unlocking, this phone will operate on the 1900 3G band.
How is this model different from Galaxy I9000? Can someone give ur opinion?
there are many 2.2 custom roms that are easy to install and better than stock. Nero v3 is a beast :u the hardware with the 2.2 software makes this the shit. screw samsung for dicking us on the updates, but thank the devs at xda who are better anyways :u
That's right, as per Samsung, us Samsung Vibrant owners in the US are NOT getting Froyo 2.2 or any other upgrade on this phone for that matter. After going through about 3 levels of Support/Technical Support, a high-level manager told me that this simply isn't coming. The problem is the integration with the Samsung user interface customizations. Without the update to Froyo, many apps don't work/are simply unavailable. The update exists in other countries, however, Samsung is blocking the IMEI in these phones and preventing an update.
Thin, plasticky, very light, but flimsy feeling and the battery life is absolutely atrocious. This thing is on its way back to T-Mobile.
Ream, 25 Dec 2010Can Vibrant upgrade to 2.2(froyo) and 2.3?Yes I am in Canada using virgin mobile and just upgraded to android 2.2 through the program called kies. You will need to download that from the samsung.com website.
Just a warning for all you out there the 2.2 upgrade will break your phone, be careful.
Ream, 25 Dec 2010Can Vibrant upgrade to 2.2(froyo) and 2.3?Yes you can. Though I wouldnt recomend I had it on my phone for a day or 2, Then it powered down and became unresponsive dont do it.
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2010y the vibrant and SGSI9000 differ in their price?Because the vibrant comes with the T-mobile service... and the sgs i9000 its like an free or unlocked galaxy s phone
does this phone have an FM transmitter to be able to stream music and then listen to it using an FM stereo on a car for example
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2010I came here from the Nokia forums of gsmarena and I would like you guys to consider buying the... morecan you not write bs symbian 3 is not better than andriod. its decent but web browsing and texting is still horrible.
duscott, 18 Dec 2010Where can I find detailed instructions for ROM flashing? Thank you! roms are here:
Only worth it if you're gonna root and put a custom rom. Battery significantly improves afters custom rom and so does speed. Can even be over clocked.
