Bell subscribers out there who are rocking the Galaxy S might want to take note. Word is out that the carrier has pulled the phone’s Android 2.2 Froyo update after many users who attempted the upgrade via Samsung’s Kies desktop software ended up with inaccessible internal storage, which definitely isn’t the desired result of a software upgrade. Hopefully this issue will be sorted out soon, but if you’ve been thinking of upgrading, you might want to hold it off for the moment. The official statement reads:

There have been intermittent issues reported during the firmware upgrade process with Kies for the Samsung Galaxy S i9000M series of phones. Samsung’s development team is currently aware of this issue and working towards a solution. Accordingly, The firmware update feature, which affects the ability to upgrade to Android 2.2, is temporarily disabled until a solution is released. We apologize for the inconvenience.
