    Wow that rep has totally no clue what hes talking about. I work for verizon so i know thats a load of bull. If it were true then most discussions wouldnt start with "wheres 2.2 for fascinate" rather they would begin with "thats ridiculous to have to pay $5 for 2.2", which most people probably would be willing to have paid for it 2 months ago regardless

    It's so much better than D1, I personally Haven't had any serious issues with mine and I wouldn't trade it in for anything b/c I enjoy using the fascinate on a daily basis.

    Froyo updates to a limited amount of phones from verizon

    Verizon or Samsung would never charge customers for updates, maybe you misunderstood him? In regards to the facinate ever being updated to Froyo, well this remains to be seen. The only thing I have heard that mimics any future of a update for this amazing phone that is worthy & should have originally been a 2.2 is US cellular is providing updates for Samsung Acclaim, HTC Desire, Samsung Mesmerize & LG Apex, these phones will be getting updated to Froyo. Now I have heard & be it Im not holding my breath, that Samsung is pushing out Galaxy Froyo update codes to carriers for testing. I have seen many Verizon customers who are red in the face over the Froyo taking so long & some are so upset that they are planning to dump Verizon/Samsung after their contracts expire. My personal opinion is this is still a great phone, & when & if we ever get a Froyo then its just icing on the cake. Im happy with this phone just as it is.

    You need to stop asking people that have zero clue. They will never charge to update phone OS's. There would be such a backlash if any company started that.
