    Just got off the phone from Samsung UK support about updates for my ATIV S.... and not much cause for hope on that one.

    It took 3 departments before they put me through to the right one (for some reason they thought ATIV S was a dishwasher). Quoting the model GT-i8750 finally seemed to get the right response and I was put through to the smartphone department.

    However, I was then informed that I was unable to install Android on this particular handset..... (err, thanks guys, I didn't actually plan on doing that in the first place).

    After sorting that one out, the assistant then took 7 minutes to find someone who actually knew anything about this handset.

    It would seem, judging from the confusion, I am apparently the first person in the UK to contact them about this phone.

    However, after all that, they have no information regarding any firmware updates at this time [head banging on desk]..

    Current firmware: 2424.13.10.1

    I have some good news from the same CEO of Customer Services at Samsung:

    Looks like the update should be rolled out very soon (oh crap, I said the s-word)
    It's in Microsoft's hands? Jolly good. I just hope the fact MS have just started suing Samsung does not affect this. the UK support desk knows nothing about it either..

    Not holding my breath - still it would be nice to be able to use the (firmware dependant) Samsung HDR camera app for a change.

    The difference is that I went direct to the CEO, you rang the support monkeys who don't know a smartphone from a dishwasher. My point being that they won't have any information on new firmware yet as it isn't available to the public, the CEO I contacted went to the relevant department and asked them a direct question.

    How about we all got contact from that CEO? i mean, like email or something, and then bombarding his Inbox with questions?
    We have a saying here in Macedonia, it goes like: "If the baby doesn't start to cry, it doesn't get the boobs (read: MILK)", LoL.

    i think the update will happen after IFA in Berlin (September 4th). They will show new WP devices for sure, Microsoft (Nokia), HTC, Samsung and probably LG (But so far that's a rumor about LG)

    and just explain to me how is that off topic?
    Isn't the name of this thread "Expecting Samsung Ativ S firmware update?" ??? Was I talking about the updates? Yes I was, and those are not speculations, those are news what tech sites are reporting every day. I guess you haven't read the whole 11 pages of the thread and see what we actually talking about here. Most of us here do a research, contact Samsung (like me, neo158 and others) and many other things that we share here with others. You are not a moderator or order keeper of the thread to tell us what to talk and what is speculations and what is not. Speculations in the smartphone and tech world are part of every marketing strategy of any manufacturer, but you knew that, right? :)
    Instead of telling what is speculations and what not, how about you do a research and provide us with fresh news? Doesn't matter if those are rumors or speculations, just participate like we all do here. Thank you!

    Wow, calm down! You were not only speculating about the date Samsung will release the update, but also about upcoming devices, which has nothing to do with the topic of this thread. Yes, I'm not a moderator but I think everybody here should be able to remind other people to respect the thread's topic. It's annoying when you get excited because there is a new post in a thread you follow only to find out it has nothing to do with what you are interested in.

    I agree with Boris; his post was on topic, relevant enough to the firmware update and more relevant and useful to be notified about than your attempt at a mod post.

    Guys, he is a newcomer and relatively new on the WP Central forums, give him a brake, he will find his way here. I am sure he didn't mean harm when he posted that. And pod4711, I apologize if i was a bit harsh towards you with my response, but I just wanted to clear the things so we cannot have further misunderstandings :) Hope you understand.
    Ok guys, now back to the topic, what have you all learn today or these days? :) Share it :)

    I don't know the CEO personally, I used the "Email the CEO" link on the Samsung UK ATIV S support page.

    I have an idea and i post it few posts above, but here it is again:
    Why don't we all get the email of that CEO (or if it has a contact form on the site) and we all write him and ask him about the Samsung WP devices if they gonna get the new WP8.1 firmware or not?
    I mean, maybe it won't change anything, but maybe it will, we won't know if we don't try, right? Don't get me serious, this is just a suggestion :)
