    "Simmering resentment over Samsung not issuing upgrades for its Android phones is turning into rage.

    This is really getting out of hand. A user revolt is starting among the tech blogs and on Twitter about Samsung's absolutely shameful lack of communication on updating its U.S. Galaxy S phones (including the Captivate, Epic, Fascinate, Mesmerize and Vibrant) to Android 2.2.

    The simmering resentment came to a boil this week thanks to a conspiracy theory promulgated by an unnamed T-Mobile employee that Samsung is purposefully avoiding upgrading the phones so they can sell more of their next-generation phones. This story has absolutely zero credibility, but it's been widely cited just because people are so confused and annoyed. I'm not going to link to it..."

    I'm just sick of substandard customer service. It seems like no matter what phone I get, there's always some issue like this. Ihave had Palm Trio, Blackberry Storm, 1 and 2, and now the Fascinate. "Get this phone because it has a much better display and it'll have froyo in December", lies the sales manager at my local Verizon. If I want this kind of service I'd have stayed with Sprint...
