Gingerbread for Infuse

Hello,

 

 

I'm sure im not that only one that has posted this but does anyone by any chance or know something that I dont know on the amended release date for the infuse? It was supposed to be released in aug but it seems as if ATT has forgotten about us infuse owners. Any Ideas? Thanks!

Re: Gingerbread for Infuse

The I777 is your best bet short-term - basically, NEVER buy any phone from AT&T that doesn't have a close international sibling.

 

The I777 is in that category - it's almost identical to the I9100, Samsung's flagship.

I777 = AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S II (non-LTE), correct?

I agree with Hank. I don't think it's very cool of AT&T to treat our device like an unwanted orphan. At least offer us a discounted upgrade to another device. They've literally turned their backs on the Infuse after hyping it up to be the next great thing to have.

They treat every phone (except for iPhone) like unwanted orphan.

Why? You will simply complain the same thing on that other device. See above.

Correct - Galaxy S II, NOT the LTE Skyrocket.

 

Note that if you stick with official carrier firmware, no phone is going to be any better than another update-wise.  If you're willing to flash custom firmware, the I777 is your best bet.

If your phone is past the 1 year warranty mark, then as Entropy512 said..root it and load a custom rom on it.

Well, that's it for me and AT&T.  The Infuse was my first Android phone.  I will stick with Android but I am dumping AT&T like a bad relationship.  Their phone support is horrible.  My next phone will be AT&T free.

Better plan on moving out of North America - other carriers aren't much better unfortunately.

 

If you actually want a properly supported phone you've got to import, and AT&T is the only US carrier with frequency bands that international units (like the GT-I9100) ever support.

Since AT&T has not updated this phone do you think we could take it back because they haven't done what they said they were going to do?  Would probably get a different phone if att doesnt get gingerbread on this.


If you purchased your Infuse more than 30 days ago, there is no chance that AT&T will take it back. Trust me. I've had a few conversations with AT&T over my dissatisfaction with the Infuse and the best they can offer me is an earlier upgrade window, but I have to wait until at least 6 months in to my current contract (I'm at 4 now...I bought the Infuse in early August). And that may only be offered based on your history...I have a Family Plan with 5 lines, average $250+/month bill and have been with AT&T since 2005 (and Cingular before that). YMMV.

 

I went back to my old iPhone 3GS while I wait until I can upgrade (rather than pay a no-commitment price on a new phone) because I couldn't take the buggy freezes and issues I was having with the Android OS. 95% of the problems I had with the Infuse were things that I read were fixed/improved in Gingerbread and ICS. Frustrating. Disappointing.

Re: Gingerbread for Infuse

Does AT&T read the forums?  A lot of customers are feeling like chumps for buying a forgotten product.  No official response on this issue from someone at AT&T who knows or cares?

Remember- The louder the voice the more it is heard. If enough customers voice their disapproval to the lack of future updates to AT&T Android devices, we can get the powers that be to change for the better. Just a thought.

Re: Gingerbread for Infuse

thats true. But I don't think people are even aware that such an update is due for their devices.

 

When I call up the customer service even they are not aware of such announcement was made by ATT.

At the end the only thing that happens is that you get fed up of waiting too long to talk with a sensible rep.

 

The matter of the fact is that because of this a lot of customers who dared to go open source way will

turn to Apple products when they will be elligible for next update. Even though this is not actually Google's mistake. But truly what is the use of bringing a new Android OS when devices having sufficient h/w capability are not provided the required updates in time.

 

When I got android I thought it must be just like linux.. upgrade the kernel whenever you want; but the reality

seems much more complex(void the waranty). I am running another thread parallel to this forum so keep on complaining

about it ... till ATT succumbs or comes with an answer.

Yeah... my wife has a Infuse... this waiting is annoying.

The experience is keeping me from buying my first AT&T smart phone.

I may as well wait to buy my first AT&T smart phone until they have multiple ones with ICS already on the phone (or ICS update 100% guaranteed released for other supported pre-Galaxy Nexus models).
