Where's WILL. Thanks.......

You were correct about the update being before the end of the month and I for one appreciate your presence on this board. Was wondering if you could chime in on what was updated.

So far it looks like:

1. The battery indicator will now read 100% when fully charged

2. Auto Correct now will stay on when texting.

3. ???????????

Thanks

Hi - and thank you for the kind words.

 

I'm working with Doug to get a list of everything that was updated in this release - I should have that ready by the end of the day.  Stay tuned!

Yeah well while you are doing that be sure to take some time and prepare yourself for a lot of unhappy people because from the looks of things this update didn't do pretty much anything people have asked for or had problems with. For me I was happy before and after the update..so far.

Personally, I think this update was to fix and tweak a lot of things that were not working the way they were designed to work. If I had to guess, adding functionality that was never originally planned for the phone, will happen in other releases. Fix what's broken 1st, add more functions 2nd. From what I've read, there is a 2nd update which is supposed to update the Java software in some way to allow the keyboard to pop up/use Opera Mini web browser, and to also allow previously made 3rd party Java apps to run on the phone. I've heard that is due sometime in August to possibly the 1st part of September. I guess there is more involved in the programming for that update.

I'm very happy with the phone as well. Hopefully Will will be nice enough to let us know what type of 3rd party apps will be updated in a couple weeks. If not, no big deal, but unstable is right, unfortunately there will be a lot of unhappy people. . . . but you can't please everyone all the time, right? 🙂

Thanks Will, I think you are the only one that actually takes the time to reply to the messages. It provides some reassurance.

The update is up:

 

http://forums.buzzaboutwireless.com/baw/board/message?board.id=Samsung_Instinct&thread.id=6715

 

And you are correct - it was mainly to the Samsung ROM.  Application level fixes are coming in August.  They're ready but not fully tested / certified.  We want to make sure we aren't introducing any new bugs when we drop the app fixes.
