Samsung Intercept for Sprint set to receive a software update

The Samsung Intercept has been available for Sprint for some time now, but it looks like the manufacturer and wireless carrier haven’t completely forgotten about the landscape slider device. The Now Network has officially confirmed that a software update is indeed headed to the device, and for owners of the device you should expect to receive an update notification beginning Wednesday, February 29th.

As far as the update is concerned, this new version is S:M910.05.S.FB01, and it looks to be just a security and enhancement update. Specifically, the update changelog for the Intercept isn’t all that long, so don’t expect to be showing off your brand new, just updated Intercept to all your friends.

One noticeable fix will be to those who have been trying to use GPS on the device, but have noticed that the handset isn’t able to find your location. That is addressed in this latest update, along with unmentioned security fixes, along with a fix in the inability to update the PRL or update the data profile.

As aforementioned, the update is scheduled to start rolling out to all Intercept owners beginning February 29th. It will be rolled out in stages, so stay frosty.
