    TYPO “The Instinct has been heavily promoted for besting iPhone in the area of software updates. Not only does (iPhone) support Firmware Over The Air (FOTA), but each application”

    Does that mean the Instinct is FOTA and checks for updates for each app or the iPhone does?

  4. Kenneth

    Yes. Not the iPhone.

    Update doesn’t really fix much. Phone is not really getting better–it is just moving sideways. The phone is just ok at this point. If anyone is on the fence about it, I’d suggest getting something else. By the time they fix the phone, it will be too late and the phone will be EOL.

    Very happy with this latest update. The web is now how it should have been from the start. The full page option is very nice and i can now go to websites that caused the browser to crash on the old version. the panning and scolling has also inproved from the old version. Now only one more big update and the phone should be set. Then it will just need apps!

    […] If you are a Samsung Instinct owner, so here is good news for you. Samsung has released a new firmware update in the form of software version BH29. This firmware update will speed up the Web browser’s performance, and other various fixes. However, before you install the software version BH29, you should install the first software update (BF30). The Samsung Instinct also supports Firmware Over The Air that will check for updates automatically each time it is launched. [PhoneNews] […]

    There is a list on another website’s forum that shows all the sites that do not work properly with the new browser. Anyone should check it out before getting too excited about the new browser. That said, Sprint has announced a new release for “mid October” that may add support for Opera. Once Opera is available, I doubt anyone will keep the existing browser.

    What is the purpose of post saying the same thing as the article, I see that a lot here?

    So seriously, is the Instinct a step up from a Palm Centro? I don’t use many of the software functions, such as MS word, excel, etc., and I don’t mind accessing email through internet. I don’t really need one-touch email or whatever it’s called.

    I have Sprint and I don’t anticipate dropping them anytime soon.
