If you bought the phone with ATT and it's their update, I think they are the ones responsible. What did they say in the ATT shop when you brought back the phone?
Or wasn't it an ATT branded phone?
I'm a first-time droid user, so these ATT updates are a new thing for me. Anyways, I wasn't sure if the updates were spam or spyware but I avoided updates for a long time till I could trust them. So I applied the updates, took a long time to load and starts to apply. I left the phone alone because I couldn't use it and I came back to an error message. It wouldn't even startup, I felt totally clueless. So I called Samsung and sent it in for repairs. Now I'm tracking the repairs and its now saying its "beyond economical repair". What the hell, I applied an update that was prompted for month, so I have a dead phone? And the reason why my phone is BER? "DEVICE ROOTED", which I have no clue what it is and why my device is BER? It was in perfect condition before the update, internally and externally. If I can't get my device repair back to working condition, this will be my last samsung device and be sure to spread the word to friends and family.
