    Non-Rooted Froyo 2.2.1 Coming 4/14/2011

    After waiting 7 months for the wife's Fascinate to update to the promised Froyo 2.2, it is finally happening tomorrow after sending a negative email to Verizon Corporate last night and receiving a personal phone call from them this morning....things are happening to change the situation we have all endured.

    My wife is getting a replacement phone for FREE because of all the trouble we have gone through in trying to get a straight answer on....Where is Froyo 2.2?

    Oh, did I forgot to mention, the replacement phone is a certified like new Droid X...just like mine. dancedroid

    If you call or email Verizon and complain enough, you can replace the Fascinate with another phone of your choice, but it won't be brand new. Of course you have to send back your Fascinate (free) via FedEx.

    Join the band wagon and dump the Samsung Fascinate.

    Being new to the forum, please give me a little slack. I didn't want to root either phone as I love Verizon's customer service and didn't want to void the warranty. My main intent is to draw attention to Samsumg, Google, and Verizon for not pulling together and leaving Fascinate non-techie owners to sit and wait for something that may never come.

    Well I guess lucky for most all Fascinate users we are already running Froyo 2.2.1 in one form or another and its miles ahead of anything VZW/Sammy will release...

    So i'm happy with my phone....Droid X is a nice phone as well but its bland in comparison IMHO, especially the screen...

    Glad you got a new phone though...

    Not a very good post name, but good idea on the hassling. Sad thing is that I bought my phone and my brothers phone at the same time buy one get one half off and he chose the Droid X and I the Fascinate. I wish I would have gone with the X as I do not wasnt to void warranty by rooting my phone and getting froyo. :/

    Its just as easy to unroot as it is to root with ODIN so really theres only advantages, no real disadvantages

    No doubt, we have froyo and loving it. Phone has been very fast sense I did it. Yeah the X is ok but you couldn't give it to me now.
