    Verizon has announced a software update (no, not 2.2 Froyo) is coming soon for Fascinate.
    Software Update: Samsung Fascinate

    I am so glad to see it removes the "No Service Audio Alert"
    Yay!

    Just retried and got the DL. All finished. I guess the only thing I may notice is the beep not being there when a wireless signal is lost.

    Previously Installed?

    I am curious as to when this was released? I went through the instructions and received the message - "No Updates Currently Available". This leads me to believe that I have the most current update?

    Is there any word on when 2.2 is planning on being released and when a GPS fix is coming?

    I tried a couple of times throughout the day Scott, and it happened to hit this last time, about 20 minutes ago. As far as 2.2 goes, I've seen a couple of posts saying at the end of October.

    Got it finally, that annoying beeping is gone. If you have it under Settings "About Phone" the Build number will be SCH-I500D101 and the Baseband version will be 5:I500.04 V.D101

    so far all I have noticed is the no service beep is gone. I was hoping for a little better signal strength, but that did not change.

    Those of you waiting on the Verizon Samsung Fascinate update to drop -- well, it's dropping now. A recap for what's in store:


    • Instant notification of Visual Voice Mail in the messaging bar.
    • Improved sync between phone and e-mail accounts.
    • Prompt notification when switching to airplane mode.
    • Faster switching from 3G to 1x RTT.
    • Search phone while on a call.
    • Improved Exchange password alerts.
    • No Service audio alert removed.

    To all that got the update do you have any of the bloatware deleted?? or just renamed?? just curious if it is like the X and wouldn't let you delete things and still get the OTA.

    I keep getting an error when I try the download. Is anyone else getting one. I am rooted but I have not removed any of the stock files. I renamed Bing, but I put it back to normal. Now the phone is telling me there are no updates.
