If you want a phone that DOES NOT GIVE UPDATES... BUY A FASCINATE

People have posted for quite some time that SAMSUNG is not obligated to give us updates because it wasn't stated in the contract. It's not stated on MOTOROLLA and HTC's contracts either but they got their updates. I did my research on-line and went to CNET and ENGADGET to read reviews about the phone before I made the purchase. And if you would go to this website it was said by SAMSUNG that the phone will be upgraded to FROYO.

 

Although they never set a time table... their silence means that they don't really care about their customers. Their is no customer support for this phone. And to all the people who posted that we should be happy because our phone can make and receive calls... GET REAL. This is supposed to be a SMARTPHONE. If all I wanted to do is make and receive calls I would have gotten a DUMBPHONE or a pre-paid throw away phone.

 

STOP FORCING US TO GET A ROOT Canal.

 

And to all REAL CUSTOMERS out there. Click on the  user names of the people who post on this forum and you would see that alot of them are here everyday almost every hour as if they don't have a job... or maybe yet THIS IS THEIR JOB. Read their comments and they would post to other forums on different cellphones on verizon.

 

I can't imagine someone who likes their phones to keep posting on this forum convincing us to LOVE the phones... what are they getting from it. NOW THAT IS THE REAL QUESTION. I have a THINKPAD and I don't go to the LENOVO FORUM website convincing everybody to love their laptops. I'm happy with my laptop and that's the end of it. To all the FASCINATE FANATICS out there... GET A LIFE and stop fooling us as if you are real customers with no hidden agenda. There are more FRUSTRATED FASCINATE OWNERS than there are FANATICS (who definitely works for samsung or a private reseller of samsung products)

most people don't care, but the reason most devices use 2.1 or 2.2 isn't because of updates, it's because people bought new phones with the OS already on it. every 2.0 device got updated to 2.1, but not every device got updated to 2.2. not only this, but not every device will get 2.3. it's just a fact of life, and it happens with LGs, Motorolas, HTCs, ect... not just the SGS series. deal with it.

Another often ignored fact is: in a couple of years quite likely over 90% of us will have new phones and only a few will even care about the Fascinate.

Hi I like to USE CAPITAL LETTERS TO STRESS MY POINT.

 

You know what I'm sick of? People like you who come on here just to create an account to **bleep** and moan about it. Every **bleep** day it's 6 bajilion new threads of whiny **bleep** complaining about not getting 2.2. SHUTUP.

 

It doesn't matter how much, how loud, or how long you complain, **bleep**, whine, moan, gripe, or threaten with lawsuits. When it gets here it gets here. If it doesn't so what... do us a favor put on your big boy/girl underwear, grow up and act your age not your shoe size. The answer to YOUR problem is out there. If you want it, go friggin get it, and stop generating meaningless, pointless ( WHERE IS FROYO?) threads. I know the MODS on this forum will probably edit the crap out of this post and that is there job to do so, but I am more than sure that I am stating the same things that they are thinking and wanting to say but can't because their hands are tied.

 

BTW I LOVE MY FASCINATE!!! It has a spot on my pillow every night...my froyo keeps me cool.

You are right, most of us in a couple of years will have new phones, here is where I differ from most people. It will not be a Samsung product and Verizon will not be my carrier.

 

I will not care about the Fascinate at all and I will remember vividly how I was treated by Samsung and ignored by Verizon. The money that this naive whiner earns will not go to either company...they don't need me and I don't need them. Very simple, very quiet, no melodrama. I don't go away mad...I just go away and take my earnings with me.

Thank you to all who are leaving Verizon for greener pastures...I believe you have opened up more bandwidth for me to surf.

My wife picked this one out for me last December at the BB store.  Had the Reps all demontrating their phones for like three hours.  All in all, I'm happy with the phone!  With all the hype about Froyo, I sure hope it improves the phone even more...  Sure, there are a few things they could have gotten right from the start - like missed call notification, flash player support, better e-mail client.. some that can be fixed through apps.  Perhaps a front facing camera in addition (i.e. skype)??  Sure is a hell of lot better than the Motorola V710 that I was packing around for a few years!  Worse case scenario, If the update doesn't come OTA and I get too crazy, I can just go get like many others have...
