    My fren just picked one of these up and I have to say I'm liking it and so is she. Got it rooted via the One Click method, it didn't take the first time but on the second reboot it worked. Got most of that nasty VZW software off of it & added WiFi tether. The signal seemed to be the same as the DROID I've had there, the signal dances all around from 3 bars to 0 bars regardless of how you hold it. Feels better in the hand over the Vibrant and the GPS was more accurate when it locked on. Locking on took some time for the first time and I made sure VZW and Network Location was off.
    Bye!

    My Google Turn-by-Turns come through in my BT headset. Does your headset have A2DP? My old one didn't and I had to upgrade. After that everything comes through fine. Music, google, etc. By the way, my Plantronics 855 had issues, but the Jabra Pebble works great. Thinking about the Blue Ant Q2 because the Pebble doesn't hold a charge as long as the 855 did.

    My BT is the Plantronics Pro noise canceling one.
    Like I mentioned, it does play the voice commands, not the turn by turn.
    Go fig.

    Hey guys, had a question about my fascinate I recently purchased. Is there any way I can get a notification on the screen when I receive a text message? All I receive is the notification sound, but want the screen to turn on as well when I get a text message. I found nothing in the settings, and hope there is something for this.


    Thanks

    I use NoLed in the Market. I think it was free, but if not it's worth every penny. You can set icons or dots. First program the Rep at Verizon told me about and its made a huge difference in how much I like the phone.

    Any word when the Fascinate's going to get 2.2 (or higher), officially? Wife's looking at getting it and not sure if I should steer to another device. Besides Flash, is there anything a general user would need 2.2 or higher? Any issues installing any of the leaks?

    My son rooted his fascinate and got 2.2--don't worry bothering with it. Nothing special.

    While I love my Fascinate, Verizon and Samsung's inability to get the 2.2 update out in a timely manor is very troubling. When I bought my Fascinate in September it had the best specs availalbe but with the launch of the HTC Thunderbolt today I find it hard to recommend that anyone purchase a Fascinate. HTC's update track record is far better than Samsung's and thanks to this, the dev community is further along on HTC devices than most Samsung devices as well.
    GOT ROOT?

    Only reason I was interested in the upgrade is for Flash support. It's my wife's phone and she doesn't like me installing unofficial software. My storm has one of the recent leaks with a bunch of junk removed to free up some memory. She's content with the latest official release and complaining about not being able to install stuff. She's going to look at the TBolt, but I think she may find it a little to big for her liking.

    If the Thunderbolt is to big there is always the tried and true Droid Incredible. The hardware specs on the Fascinate are superior in virtually every way, but HTC's software soundly beats Samsung's.

    Need a newer version of Android for Verizon Fascinate

    I have Verizon Samsung I500. Somewhere last year I found a web site to root my original verizon software to Android 2.2.1 from the original installed 2.1 . I want to update to newer ver of Android but the "Sytem Update" tab will not work. Where can I go to get instructions and files to update to ver 2.3.x (or later). Greatly appreciate your help.
