    Perhaps Samsung or AT&T should mention that this upgrade is BEST done on a 32 bit OS…NOT a 64 bit system…like Win 7 64bit or XP 64bit!
    The update tends to “hang” forever…there is, apparently, no relief until you get to a 32 bit machine!!
    That’ll take me till about the middle of next week!
    Thanks for the notice, guys…really needed to be without my phone for a week!! ;)

    I downloaded the version of Kies mini 1.0.0.11084_3 , and when I connected my Infuse it said, “Firmware Version: Latest Version” “Version Upgrade: 12/02/09″ and doesn’t allow me to upgrade. Did the upgrade get to the New Orleans area yet?
