    I am pookin at the droid x,incredible,and Samsung fascinate.I'm i correct in assuming for the most part once they all are 2.2version they are pretty much the same and it comes down to preference?I want voice to text,swype,decent camera,that ppinch thingy,and a cool screen.They all seem fast.I'm not a buisness person and don't download much music,just want a good browsing experience and be able to text message without goin insane like i am now with my current phone,LG 9600.Thanks

    Honestly, I'd go with the Droid x, with HDMI out, ability to shoot HD videos, and all the custom Tom's, you can't go wrong. Super large screen, thin as paper, its just the way to go in my book.

    Welcome.. those three phones are all great phones. The best thing to to do is to play with them and then pick your fav.. I like the X

    Go to a VZW and test drive each. One will stand out.

    This is one of the only times I would suggest a trip to VZW - to decide which device is right for me

    They have all 3 at the Wal Mart by me,but none are plugged in to play with.maybe they would let me do that.Not a wal mart fan but their prices are cheap compared to the Verizon store that just went up by me.Ps.I assume from what i have read the fascinate can be changed to google now as oposed to bing?Thanks for these quick responses already guys.Keep em commin:)

    Is there a VZW store in the vicinity? If so, make a visit. You do not need to make a purchase but you can test drive each device. Once you decide on a phone where you purchase is up to you. Big Red still gets paid for the data, voice, and text.
