    Call quality and signal strenth are not very good on the Fascinate or any other Galaxy S device really. Two things Samsung is infamous for is weak radios and slow updates. If call quality and reception is important to you than you should have stayed with the Droid X. Motorola has its shortcomings as well (locked bootloader comes to mind) but they are known for putting serious r&d into its radios for great reception and call quality.

    I concur as well. I've considered moving too a different device because samsung and verizon have not offered support for the device the way other providers and manufacturers have. I'm not sureidb any better off with another device when it comes to battery life however.

    Well I expect every device has it's pros and cons. The last place I lived signal strength mattered alot. Where I live now the Samsung Fascinate is great. The pros outweigh the cons. The droidx was my second choice though.

    My fascinate gives great signal strength. Never had an issue with dropped calls or laggy internet. I live in San Diego, so idk how it compares to other places tho

    Yep, one of the reasons I switched from a Fascinate to the DX.

    There is a DroidX and Fascinate in my household, and they both seem to get the same signal strength in the same locations. I have put them side by side and checked the signal strength numbers in the settings, and they are almost exactly the same (within 1 or 2 dBm). With the latest updates, the Fascinate signal strength is more precise, but still shows the same range as the DroidX. However, the DroidX usually has one more visible bar in the status bar than the fascinate, so this could cause confusion.

    As far as call quality, the phones are again the same. I might give a slight edge to the Fascinate, but that could also be because it's my phone. :) However, the DroidX has a clear advantage over the Fascinate in voice quality when using the speakerphone.
