    New phone upgrade

    I am eligable for a new phone in a couple weeks. I want to dump my LG Ally for a Samsung Fascinate. Would this phone be recommended for an inexpensive phone or should I go with the Continuum?

    the fascinate is a fantastic phone. it tried out the continuum and didn't like it. the only thing better about the continuum is that is is narrower and pockets better. you won't be letdown with the fascinate. it is quick, responsive, great call quality, good battery life for a smart phone, and has the samsung screen which is the best you can get. the reception on the fascinate is usually a bar or two lower than my wife's droid x.

    I have the Fascinate and hate it. It has a big issue with missed calls. So bad that verizon finnaly admitted it and is substituting 3 phones in its place if you have it. They offered me the Droid x2,incredible2 and Samsung Charge. Think twice

    I would avoid the Fascinate. I have one and dislike it intensely ("hate" is such a strong word...). It is very buggy. A lot of people in this forum and others have experienced issues, and this is consistent with Fascinate-owning friends I have talked to.

    Samsung Fascinate

    I would not suggest the Fascinate. My daughter and I have the Fascinate and we have each had our phones replaced three times. This past Friday, when she complained about the fourth phone, Verizon offered to send her the HTC Incredible, Motorola X2 or the Samsung Charge because of known issues with the Fascinate. She chose the Incredible. I tried to get the same deal and they turned me down--told me the software upgrade will solve the issues I'm having. I did the upgrade and am still having the same problems. Dropped calls, missed calls, random message sending, flashing/vibration, frozen screen. . .just "a few" of the issues I experience daily. Oh, and the battery lasts four hours. I cannot use bluetooth or wifi because the battery won't last an hour if I do. My niece and her husband had the same problems and were able to say the right magic words to get their phones replaced on Friday as well--they chose the Droid X2. Best Verizon would do for me is send me a new Fascinate. They assure me this one will work. We'll see. (I will post what happens when I get the new phone.) Don't buy the Fascinate.
