    The problem with our phone was A. Bad timing and B. A complete non launch. This thing came out at the beginning of the '4 or norhing' phase. Nobody wanted a rehashwd fascinate with a smaller screen. And the ticker was never pumped by anyone. Actually, it was hurt when samsung made it clear to everyone that they would not release the api to third party devs. So the only notifications you were going to get were what was shipped. So, what could have been a great phone with an innovative design became a also ran, barely worthy of the galaxy s moniker with a (and I'm quoting SEVERAL reviews) novelty. And nobody bought it. So, big red said to hell with it.

    Do your research first. Those things have had issues, too

    Well the Fascinate just got updated to Gingerbread. It seems that Verizon may push a 2.3 update to the Continuum: the Fascinate has been off the vzw website for quite some time while the Continuum just got booted off. Can only keep my fingers crossed :unsure:

    continuum update - NOT!


    Lets get honest. "They" will never release an update for our Continuums. (and they are still selling them!) It just AINT gonna happen!
    :mad:

    I love the ticker, get a lot of use out of it... but it makes for the phone needing a LOT more code for update.
    Too hard, too much work for them.
    The truth is, they just want us to buy a new phone!
    Like... Nexus, just released.

    I talked to a Verizon Rep and he said it will probably be updated a little after new years.

    Samsung reply re: Continuum lack of update:

    [h=6]yesterday, I posted this on one of Samsung's FB pages:
    Sandra Curtis[​IMG]Samsung Mobile USA

    [/h][h=6]Where's my update? Galaxy S Continuum is 13 months old and still running on version 2.1. Half of the apps in the market are "not compatible with your device".
    PLEASE GIVE US UPDAT
    E - even if not to Ice Cream Sandwich, give us at least to 2.3! We paid GOOD $ for this phone and are not getting support.[/h][h=6]Thank you.[/h]Samsung just replied on the thread:
    Samsung Mobile USA

    Hi Sandra. Sorry to hear about your frustration. We will be sure to post an announcement on the page when any updates and upgrades become available for the Galaxy S. Thanks!

    Yeah I talked to another rep and he's blaming Samsung claiming "its on them" to release the update.
