    Angry DAMN YOU Samsung/ Verizon for the Fascinate

    Ok, So I have the DX (obviously) and love it. My wife in her jealousy bought the Fascinate...WOW does the Fascinate screen look great! I bought the DX in on launch day, She bought the Fascinate in late September I think.

    Anyways, yesterday Samsung and Verizon finally released a update for her Android 2.1 OS, I assumed it was Froyo. We downloaded, installed, and....... NOTHING! just a maintenance update for 2.1. Bull! and to make matters worse, there are no Fascinate 2.2 roms even leaked. Canada has 2.2, Europe has 2.2, but USA only has 2.1 (rev2?).

    So every time i am using my DX to do something cool (like Chrome to Phone or Flash) and she starts asking me to install it to her phone, I have to explain "you can't"

    The only thing worse than not having an up to date OS on your phone (if you even consider 2.2.1 up to date) is having a wife with a phone not up to date...... We will never by a samsung phone again. Stop gloating about selling 10 million units and provide some customer service. I was going to buy a TAB but not after this Fascinate Fiasco.

    My wife has the fascinate as well. I am not impressed with it and neither is she. She has had for about a month and a half and are on the second one and this one still doesn't work. She can only receive email when in it is opened. Not happy with it

    I Know, Verizon Reps keeps saying "An upcoming service update will fix that issue"; I will believe it when I see it! I think we can both agree it is a chick phone light and shiny!

    The Epic 4G would be, in my opinion, the best phone as of now if it had stock gingerbread.

    UPDATE: The source of this information contacted us once more with a little update about the 4G performance he mentioned. This is what he said:


    We have already put it out there that most of out devices would see a speed boost with the new network. Just the Vibrant will see a bit more. So I dont see why that is such a huge surprise to your readers. But not full 4G.


    So as you can read, it’s not going to be full 4G compatibility, but he does say that the Vibrant will get a bigger advantage from the upgrade than other phones on the network. I think we’d all like to see any increase in speed no matter how small it is.

    We cannot validate nor deny this speculation at this time, however we are just relaying the information provided to us.


    ...


    Idk if I would trust someone who says "FULL 4g, YES FULL 4G" and then says "Not full 4G, just a slight boost."

    Sounds like a conspiracy theorist on the outside found a conspiracy theorist on the inside... worlds colliding.
