Samsung Moment

Sprint just announced a "maintenance update" to the Samsung Moment Android phone. No, not a full-on Android upgrade, unfortunately. And, what's worse, you'll have to hit up a Sprint store to get it. Here's what's new:

  • Network Assist GPS to allow indoor location fix
  • Updates to several third-party apps, including Visual Voicemail, NFL, NASCAR and Sprint TV
  • Change to Emergency Dial on lock screen
  • Hard reset available in recovery mode: remove and reinsert battery; press volume down, send and end keys until reboot option pops up; scroll to wipe data/factory reset; press OK
  • Various improvements to battery life

Sprint does say "The ability to download the updated directly on your Moment will be available in the near future," which is nice, we guess, but that really should the standard now. Anyhoo, if you head in and get the update, let us know how it goes. [Sprint]
