    Certainly, Froyo will make this phone much better. It is the best prepaid Android phone with unlimited SMS/MMS/Data for USD 25 per month.

    They announced today they scrapped pushing the update out because the intercept can’t handle it.. bummer!

      That’s funny… it can’t handle it??? Then why does Sprint’s version have 2.2???

        VM announced via their facebook page that they have pushed the upgrade out to “around the first week in April”. They said they ran into technical difficulties but looks like it is still on the way.
