I can’t imagine any Samsung Behold 2 owners are happy about the way the company’s handled this upgrade process. We first thought they’d be bringing Android 2.1 to the device – even if it would take them forever to do so. After learning they’d be bringing an OTA soon enough, it was revealed that it would only bring Behold 2 owners to Android 1.6. Samsung basically said it was impossible to go beyond that point.


It isn’t clear if that was due to hardware issues, the lack of care, or whatever, but we digress: that upgrade can no longer be had for the time being. T-Mobile and Samsung have pulled it down from their servers after getting heavy pressure from users experiencing even more issues after the upgrade (one big issue has been signal quality and strength).

I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of the upgrade: Samsung’s probably working with T-Mobile to quickly work out the kinks to push the update back to their servers. Still, this entire update story for the device has become one huge circus and it only gets crazier from here on out.
