British operater "three" and Samsung's "Finnish website" have claimed Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) would be available to its Samsung Galaxy S handsets in mid April!
Any news of that sort for Captivate users? OR it is gonna take ages (as it did with 2.2) for this update to reach marooned "peninsula" of North America?
Are we gonna get android 2.2.1 on Captivate here in Canada? or it's one of those things we will never get it!!
The update to 2.2.1 on Galaxy S is already out in many regions around the globe. The feedbacks show lots of improvements and enhancements in its performance as there are some annoying glitches present in the current (2.2) version.
Does anybody have any update?
I'd like to know this too. I'm getting really upset with the huge lag issues with messaging (email, texts and google talk) It's quite annoying.
Rogers when is 2.2.1 coming to us. I really hope that it is soon
Any news from Rogers whether we are gonna get 2.2.1 or 2.3.3 for Captivate? 2.2 acts way below the device capability!!
I hope Rogers can get back to us with an Answer not like always: the clear "silence"...
I agree. I had a lot of trouble trying to get 2.2 so I decided to wait for 2.3, but for how long do we have to wait?
My phone turns off by itself and I don't know what else to do... but to make the upgrade... when ready... Rogers blames Samsung, Samsung Rogers and who helps me?
Captivate Keep Alive (in the Android Market) does a good job of keeping your phone from randomly shutting down. Mine had that problem, and Captivate Keep Alive has stopped it from happening. There have been reports of reduced battery life from running this app, but I haven't noticed any particular reduction - I charge every night though, so your mileage may vary.
I too had the same problem with shutdowns, and the 2.2 update did not fix it. The best thing is to send it back to Rogers for warranty.
The 2.3 update should be coming in the summer months. Bell is getting theirs over the summer, and I am sure Rogers will follow shortly. You can see the article here:
