Virgin Mobile's Samsung Intercept to Receive Froyo in the Coming Weeks

Virgin Mobile is one of the largest pre-paid networks in the USA. They are offering a few Android powered devices, and the Samsung Intercept is one of them. The Virgin Mobile version of the Intercept is the same that has been released on Sprint, but with one glaring difference, the Sprint version has already been updated to 2.2.  There was word back in January that Virgin Mobile will launch Android 2.2 for Intercept in few months, and it looks like the time is here. Virgin Mobile has officially announced that Samsung Intercept will receive Android 2.2 Froyo in the coming weeks. The update will give users:

  • Exchange Active Sync updates
  • ability to install applications to external memory card
  • improved Bluetooth device support
  • Bluetooth Voice dialing
  • improved operating system performance
  • dedicated phone, application and browser icons on every home screen

So Virgin Intercept owners, start loving your phone again because you will be receiving a nice gift from Virgin soon!

      I got one also. When I clicked the link provided in the text message, it said the updates will START 4/11/2011, but that “I would be receiving a prompt over the next few weeks”. In other words, not everyone is going to get the prompt to update at the same time. But it is in motion. Patience, kiddies. Patience. ;)

      it says it starts today but can take up to two weeks to actually recieve the update.

      I got the update yesterday. Works great. The phone finally functions again and doesn’t hang up every waking minute. Seamless installation as well. The update with the appropriate platform for the 800 mhz processor has increased the speed of the OS on the phone as well. Much better. great improvement.

        Yesterday I had a flash on my screen that said update available. I hit a button and away it went. No problems! I am not very technical so I have to take some time to learn about the changes.

    The way Virgin Mobile has handled updating this thing is atrocious.

    Has anyone got the update yet? It looks like it will be released OTA in the ‘next few weeks’, but someone should have gotten it by now..

  • Terrilynn10

    Yes I got the text too and was expecting the update prompt today but when I read it again I realized that we will be getting the prompt “sometime” in the next couple weeks. I am excited to get it because my phone seems to be real sluggish. will this help it? I am new to the android world!

    I heard it is an over the air update, so you have to plug the phone into the computer for the update.

    • NotTrollinJustTheTruth

      You are retarded over the air means you get it from the carrier from the cell towers, not a computer or wifi.

      • Rawmss88

        You’re a dick!
