Following up on their statement that Android 2.2 would be coming to the Samsung Intercept in Spring (http://www.androidcentral.com/android-22-coming-virgin-mobile-samsung-intercept-spring), Virgin Mobile USA has now pinned it down to a more finer date. March 25, or around there is when it is expected to roll out to Virgin Mobile U.S. users. The wait is almost over now, delays be damned!

WOOT! I am so excited. I can't wait =] I've only had the intercept for a couple weeks, but I am loving it. Everyone who is a hater can go shove it, can't beat $25/month.

Today is the 25th and I am waiting. I guess I should go to the Virgin Mobile site and see if they say anything.

I just went to the VM Facebook site and they say it is now going to be April 4th for the upgrade to 2.2

Update: 04/05/2011 Well a lot of pissed off VM customers. Now they are saying the update will be later in April but are not giving a date.
One person on the VM facebook page said he contacted Samsung and they said that VM can not release the 2.2 upgrade until Sprint OKs the release.

Right now there does not seem to be any release date.
A great many people are waiting until VM or Boost Mobile or someone has a 2.2 cell phone that we can all switch to.
If VM comes out with a 2.2 phone they can sell a lot of phones to us... of course we will still be pissed. If somoene else comes out
with a phone and a good deal on no contract service they are going to get a lot of unhappy VM customers.

Well I got android 2.2 on my Samsung Intercept. I did not get it from VM. I downloaded it and installed it.
I made a video for YouTube on it: Here is the non HD URL: YouTube - Installing Android 2.2 on a Samsung Intercept - Virgin Mobile Service (http://youtu.be/ei26D_IIq0g)

The install went OK. 2.2 is an improvement for sure.
