    Hey guys, sorry to say but I'm jumping the fascinate ship over to a DInc2.

    After the 2.2 update my phone kept biting the dust. (4 different warranty replacements)

    I know I prob could have avoided the prob via root/flash, but I shouldn't have to do this to use my phone.

    So a sup at vzw is sending me a DInc2.

    I'll miss my sleek slender phone with my bright pretty screen. And now my phone won't match my tvs but I think it's for the best.

    This phone had a lot to offer, too bad Samsung kinda dropped the software ball.

    Oh and I guess I'll relinquish my Flashers Anonymous presidency over to Hecantbreathe... Or Tapout...better yet, you two fight it out, YouTube it, send me the link :p

    Kind of disheartening news, considering I just ordered 2 Fascinates. :icon_eek:

    Other than the problems since updating to 2.2, were you happy with the phone? What would you say made you intially pick it over, say, the DX or Incredible?

    Thanks & good luck with your new dinc2 (another strong contender we considered)

    It's a good phone. I chose it for the AmoLED display which I think rivals and maybe beats the iPhone. The thin, sleek design is awesome. It's a good product. I just had horrible issues that I couldn't get past. I don't have regular access to the internet in my home so accessing files and occasional ODINing just wasn't too practical.

    You probably won't have issues if you're getting new that were probably built after 2.2. I think the problem was mainly with refurbs that didn't initially have 2.2.

    I would recommend rooting/ROMing just because its the best way to get the phone to live up to its potential. And again with Tapout and Hecantbreathe you can't go wrong.

    Well that just cured me. I was thinking of going back to my fascinate now that they rolled out 2.2. I will stick with my droid x after reading this.

    Incredible 2 can be rooted and you can use titanium backup to freeze bloat. But they have not got soff yet so bootloader is locked.

    It works fine for other people. Kinda hit and miss. Main issues people have are freezing and bad batt drain.

    And if all u want is 2.2 the xda dev find are better than the stock froyo 2.2 imo
