    So, I just got a Samsung Fascinate off of ebay for 350. I currently have a Droid 1 and I'm wondering if I should keep the Samsung Fascinate and sell my Droid, or resell the Samsung Fascinate for 500+. Or, I can keep my Droid just to screw around with. I'm not sure what to do. Can anyone help?

    Sounds good. I wonder how going back to 2.1 is going to feel after being on 2.2 for months.

    I just got home from picking up my Fascinate. Buy one, get one free, so my neice has a surprise waiting for her when she gets here. $149.99 after rebates. $100 Verizon rebate and $50 BJ's (east coast Sams Club type store) rebate.

    So far I like it. My Droid was rooted and running at 1.2 gig. The Fascinate is sooooo much zippier!

    Volume on it is not quite the Droid 1, but better than the Droid X. I'd have a DX if it wasn't for that.

    My main dissapointment is the 2 gig internal memory. I went in knowing this, but to find only 1.5 gig of that 2 gig available, that was a bit more dissapointing. Still, it's 6 times more than the Droid 1. I'm sure when I root, some of the bloat will be removed.

    Another dissapointment is that my contacts from Google don't sync over. I hope not. Still gotta look into that more, but I have the feeling we're stuck using Backup Assistant on this device.

    Reception on it is typical Samsung. I live in an area where you barely have a signal in one spot, but take 2 steps and there is now no signal. Moto phones have always had the best reception for me, LG being the worst. This one doesn't quite pick up that signal like the Droid, but it's still possible in the right position.

    It's only been about an hour. Still lots to try on this device.

    I hated to part with the D1, but I like gadgets and upgrading is what I like to do.

    First impressions were good. No buyers remorse. Yet.

    Just got mine... Been messing around with it for a couple of hours now! My contacts from Google did sync just fine as soon as I logged into Google in the "Phone Setup" wizard!

    Love the phone so far but I did come from a Samsung 1!!!!! My husband has a Droid1 and is trying to decide whether to go to Droid2 or Fascinate...

    I AM LOVING THIS PHONE!!!!

    I found that my contacts did end up syncing. All the facebook contacts were in there as well so that had me confused at first.

    Well when my phone arrives, the first thing I'm going to do it remove all the bloatware, and bing.

    I have a D1 and a Fascinate and I've gotta say that I've not touched my D1 in 2 days and when I do...I sigh because it's heavy and just not as nice as the Fascinate. Even with running UD 8.0, the Fascinate is my favorite phone so far. I've got it rooted, no issues whatsoever and am patiently waiting for a custom ROM.

    Get some HD videos on it then compare to droid X, then watch the droid x owner try to steal your phone :)
