  1. It took long enough to get the update but I cannot wait until Monday. Since it was supposed to come out on March 25 I have been waiting and waiting for the update to arrive.

    • just because they are starting the update process doesn’t mean you will be getting the update Monday… from what I hear it will be spread out over several weeks by the time everyone gets the update

    • Well I guess it sucks to be samsung fascinate owners because its finally out for the intercept on virgin mobile…so all of you can suck my big hairy balls!!!
