    So this is scheduled to be out in the "next few weeks"? So that means mid 2011 at this rate?

    This is bad business for Samsung. How can the Galaxy line possibly compete as a highend device without 2.2? The N1 and D1 will be getting 2.3 soon. Homefully Samsung just skips 2.2 altogether. Since they are making the next Google phone that will release with Gingerbread, maybe they will be experts on it and just go to that. Doubtful though.

    Not holding my breath. They have one of, if not the best phones on the market And they are dropping the ball like a bad habit.

    I just got one a Fascinate for my wife Friday night. The Verizon rep told me that 2.3 was being pushed to the Fascinate in 3-4 weeks.

    Here's the deal. VZW reps get emails when os updates are released to VZW for the devices. More than likely 2.3 is being released for them to work with. We wont see 2.3 anytime soon.

    PS VZW Rep told me a month ago that 2.2 is coming to Fascinate that day.....still holding my breath.

    You could be right. A few things make me think he was legit. First, he wasn't the rep we bought the phone from. Second, we had the conversation after we made the purchase. And last, the guy was into rooting and such (he wanted to check out my og droid running ultimate droid with slayer kernel and red glass theme). Also, it wasn't a corporate verizon store. He may have been bullcrapping me, but he really had no reason to. My wife loves the phone as is anyway.

    Android central released today saying that the Epic should be getting froyo starting the 26th, lasting 4 days. I know its not about the Fascinate, but perhaps that sheds hope that we will be getting it pretty damn soon. Hopefully.

    Last I heard 2.2 for the Fascinate was a no-go. Moving straight to Gingerbread.

    There is a better chance of Gingerbread never being officially released to the Fascinate. Samsung has already tried to push Froyo to Galaxy S devices and failed. Multiple times. Most recently they wiped the sd card on the majority of those that received the update. You'll know when Froyo is close for the Fascinate when the GSM devices complete a successful rollout.

    I think the only hope for Fascinate ever seeing Gingerbread is Nexus S.... but that's a long shot.

    Gingerbread maybe a future option as Samsung was one of the first companies to use in testing, the Nexus S. The only problem here is that users of a Galaxy series phone/tablet may not upgrade to newer samsung devices if they indeed get Gingerbread. Besides if you look at the interface of Gingerbread it is not as big of a jump as it was from 2.1 to 2.2. Worry about getting 2.2 then we can start the Gingerbread or even Honeycomb theories.


    With the Epic starting to get it's Froyo next week I feel VZW will be just behind with the Fascinate update. Then again VZW does not appear to be in love with Samsung like they are with Motorola.

    My fascinate says there is an update available but every time I try to update it I get "Server Unavailable." And sometimes it will think and think but the update never completes. It says 2.1, 1 update.

    I took the phone to Verizon and the guy worked on it for a few hours and wasn't able to get an update to go either. He said I might need to exchange it for a new one.

    Any suggestions?

    Yes. First this is an update through came some months ago. This is not froyo.

    First make sure you are off wifi. For some reason it won't update on wifi.

    After turning off wifi try the update again. If still failing dial *228 and press 1st to reprogram. Then reboot and try agaon. This won't delete anything, it just reprograns vzw with your phone's credentials.

    Okay, so I turned off wifi, it tried to find the update package for about 5 minutes. Eventually shut itself off, back on and it says
    "update failed or incomplete"
    "Reason: IP, previous update failed"
    "sofware updates automatically and the mobil will power off and on as part of this special offering"

    So, again, unable to update. I guess I will wait for Froyo and take it into Verizon at that time.

    Try doing a manual update -- you can download the update's .zip file on the web. Recovery should recognize it and install it fine.

    Secondly, the rumor is that FroYo is NOT coming to the Fascinate -- you will be jumping straight to Gingerbread, and nobody knows how long it will be before Sammy gets in gear and gets a decent Gingerbread version baked up and iced properly for you Fascinaters. :)
