    I did a search on their website and it gave me this"

    YOUR SEARCH — SAMSUNG CHARGE — DID NOT YIELD ANY RESULTS.
    Please check the spelling or try a keyword.

    This is a list of phones they do have for Samsung

    Samsung: Behold II, Captivate, Continuum, Corby S3650, Corby W900, Epic 4G, Fascinate, Flight II, Focus, Galaxy A, Galaxy Ace, Galaxy S, GALAXY S II, Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy Tab, Lindy, Mesmerize, Monte, Monte Preston, Omnia HD, S8500 WAVE, Showcase, Trance, Transform, Ultra TOUCH S8300, Vibrant, Wave II

    There was no listing when going through the list of phones either.

    Either way my wife has her ordered and I will be next month.

    Not necessarily... to quote the Corning website:

    I wish the carriers and manufacturers would tout this as a feature - Gorilla Glass on my next phone is an absolute must. I won't do without it.

    My co-worker just got a Charge (with a damned screen protector on it), and feeling the unprotected part, it seems like GG to me. I'm going to head in to a VZW store today and test it on a display model (with my keys).

    Thats just silly? Why would you risk doing that. Even thou they are, live demos. Those cost almost as much as the phone and if you get caught. You will likely end up paying for it.

    I talked with Verizon and the guy stated that there is alot of confusion on the subject. He had said it would be stupid if it didn't but he didn't want to say yes or no when he didn't have a definite answer on it, He went on to say that even Samsung reps dont have a clue whether it does or not.

    My question is why doesn't even samsung the company who made the phone know what there phone is made of?

    Edit/Update:

    According to samsung the Charge does have gorilla glass.
    Heres the chat:

    Spencer: Hi, thank you for contacting Samsung Technical Support. How may I help you today?
    Visitor: Yes I was just wondering if the Droid charge had Gorilla glass or not?
    Spencer: I understand that you want to know whether Droid Charge comes with Gorilla Glass or not, am I correct?
    Visitor: yes that is correct
    Spencer: Thank you for confirming.
    Spencer: I have checked with the information and I see that Droid Charge comes with Gorilla Glass.
    Visitor: okay so it does definitely have gorilla glass?
    Spencer: Yes it has.

    Well I can finally put the glass question to rest. I scratched my charge's glass, not on purpose, so that answers the question. It ended up with a deep scratch and it barely brushed against a wall.

    It is funny b/c I researched this also and I also came up with the answer that the charge did not have gorilla glass. But I apologize, that I do not remember where I got that info. I think I got it from the samsung website and I know the answer was related to the charge having a super amoled screen, that the gorilla glass was not possible.

    Sorry, my info is not any more certain than anyone elses on here (except the previous post seems pretty clear). I use a screen protector, always have and always will. I don't even notice it.
