    Another Chance for update?

      Come on TMobile... Every other carrier has updated the original Galaxy Tab to Gingerbread.

      This newest update would be an awesome addition to my Tab that's only a year old and still running Froyo.

          Yeah I second that.

          Have one of these things my self among myffleet and it bothers me that Samsung/T-mobile never updated it.

          I would be happy even with 2.3 as a lot of apps need that now.

            Hi pkg1234,


            I know an update has been long anticipated. While there are software updates coming down the pipeline for various devices;  unfortunately, there is nothing to report at this time.  Any news of a software update will be posted at t-mobile.com/support. 


            Have a great rest of the day!

                And this is my my wife and I are switching to verizon when our contracts are up. We were sold a lie when we got our Tabs, and now you will lose our business (both tab and phone) after close to 8 years.

                  It's not like they updated theirs either.
