    Greetings all.

    Four days of playing with a Samsung Fascinate from Verizon.

    A few lessons learned.


    Always disable:
    • GPS
    • WiFi
    GPS & WiFi drain the battery very quickly! At least with my phone, and that is with few calls and a few minutes of web.

    I will add an extended capacity battery soon.
    Only real problem is my inability to pair the Fascinate with my Ford Escapes Synch system.

    Looking forward to learning and sharing with everyone here!

    You can buy a good quality battery from BestBuy or Fry's for $20.
    This allows you to enjoy your phone without babysitting.
