      so how do you update it?

      • http://ryocentral.info Ryo

        I can’t. That’s the problem. There is no option. Apparently you could try
        this with “Kies”, the strange Software from Samsung. But I use GNU/Linux and
        so I have to wait for an OTA if this ever happens :(

  • Grrrrrr Sprint

    So far all I see is a sprint advertisement on the exit screen and the welcome (boot up) screen. Lovely. And oh by the way, my google maps and navigation programs no longer work. Thanks, Sprint~!
