Getting fed up with Sprint/Android

Well this is becoming ridiculous. 2.1 has been out for 3 months now and Sprint still cant get it up and running while devs from SDX and XDA have had ROMs for weeks. By the time we ever see 2.1, it will be old news and 2.5 will already be here or well on its way. That means we will be forced to buy a new phone to get it, Sprint sure as hell wont be upgrading to it anytime soon. I just bought this Hero in Jan, its not even 3 months old.

Unless Google does something fast to streamline Android so all carriers are running current versions, more people like me will just get more fed up and leave Android. Say what you will about Apple being control freaks but at least they know how to run sh*t and 4.0 is going to offer some nice improvements. Android has the potential to be great, but its a giant mess right now and I am about done with it.

I concur man, this is getting rediculous now. Every one else has at least 1.6 and were stuck with 1.5.. I dont know man Sprint is going to mess up a great chance to lead the way for Android phones.

most other carriers still have 1.5 phones, we are going to get the update, sprint has always claimed early 2nd quarter 2010, so they still have time left thits month.

Remember the Sanyo MM8500 and MM9000? We were promised all kinds of updates and then new phones came out and the updates never came.

Remember the Samsung Instank? So many updates, programs, and apps were promised and what did Sprint do? Release a new and improved instinct HD and never released crapola.

Now? They are making the same promises and teasing us with new and super improved phones. New phones will come out before the updates. That is IF WE GET ANY UPDATES AT ALL.

LOL are you all kidding really???

Show me any Hero from any company in the US that has 2.1 on it ???
Verizon's vs is running 1.5


Everyone needs to grow up a little and breath it will come, we all know it.
The Hero, and the Moment will both have 2.1 before the Evo 4G gets released we all know that as well...

We know for a fact we are getting 2.1, both the hero and the moment currently have a leaked version of it. If we aren't getting a 2.1 update, then why do we have a leaked build? Besides as I stated earlier, sprint has said early 2nd quarter 2010 is still on track, and this month is not over yet, so I fail to see how sprint is breaking their promise that we would get a 2.1 update.

and it's not just Sprint btw, there's quite a few 1.5 or 1.6 phones floating around on other carriers that have not seen a 2.1 update yet.

if you really want the 2.1 update that badly, just install one of the leaked roms.

And the sad part for them is that it looks like the droid eries is is getting it's end of life in May, with no signs of any 2.1 update for it.

It is frustrating that we have had to wait so long for 2.1. I mean why couldnt we have got atleast 1.6 then 2.1 when it was ready? In todays technology and how people are getting the next best phone each year , these carriers need to step there game up and get these updates out quicker!! Most likely the time 2.1 comes out i will be planning on getting the Evo!!

You have to remember that these updates take time as far as delvoping them, and testing, they could of done 1.6, sure, but why spend the $$ and effort on 1.6 when 2.1 was coming out soon?

and the Evo isn't scheduled to be out until this summer, so yes, you are going to see the 2.1 update before that happends.

2.1 is only on a few phones, so guess we are stuck with 1.5 till whenever. I like everyone have been very patient for these updates. If this update doesnt come out this month i would be very dissapointed !!!

Well at least you can get updates. I have to flash my HTC Touch because Sprint doesn't update the OS any more. So, it could be worse.

BTW, be patient. It will come along.

Exactly, I am kind of surprised at the number of Android users who completely forgot on how little Sprint / Microsoft / HTC, and other manufactures updated their devices.

To the current Android users - be happy we are even getting an update at all.

As much as I want 2.1, NOBODY has updated their pre-2.1 devices to run 2.1... Even the droid has only had it for a week or so, and the update from 2.0 to 2.1 didn't entail major changes.

and let's not forget about all the problems they are reporting with 2.1 right now, i would much rather have sprint take awhile on the rom so we don't see as many issues.
