My Fascinate is a POS.
I joined Verizon in November of last year, and use their family plan. When we signed up, we got four Samsung Fascinates.
Shortly after getting the phones (a month maybe?), I was playing a game of Angry Birds when my phone became unresponsive. I had to take off the back and take the battery out, and then restart the phone. Since that time, this is becoming a daily, or even twice daily occurrence (dependent upon how much I use it that day) ... and unlike my experience with "Angry Birds", I no longer have to be doing anything CPU intensive. The other day, I opened "CONTACTS" and it locked up after telling it to call one of them. There's been times I wasn't even using the phone, pick it up and I can't get it to respond to anything.
I NEED to replace it. It's simply not worth the money spent on it each month. However, before I contact Verizon about it, what do I need to do?
- Do I need to write down all my apps, or will I have access to them once I sign into my Google account with the replacement?
- My battery life is RIDICULOUSLY BAD!! Should I mention that to Verizon, or just forget it?
Two of the other three Fascinates on my account have issues, but nothing as bad as mine. I read where you can get Droid X or Droid Incredible replacements, and I was planning to ask for a Droid X replacement, but I already have the docking station as well as a belt holder for the Fascinate, so I think I'm just going to try my luck with another one. If an iPhone 4 was a choice, I'd probably forget about the cost of the case and dock, but since it's not an option...
