If u buy directly from vzw website, there is no tax and free overnight shipping. When I bought mine, they refunded the activation fee ($30 I think?), but you might want to check on that at the website cause I had to call them to get the refund. :(
Also, although everyone has been complaining about Samsung not releasing froyo, keep in mind that samsung has already released an open source froyo code and it's now up to vzw to build on it and release. Plus, I haven't had ANY of the software problems like GPS so far (2 months of use) that everyone's taking about. So it's a great phone with top of the line hardwares and I welcome you to the fascinate community!

BlackHoleSlam, I'm not trying to tell you how to spend your money but spending that much on a discontinued phone doesn't seem right to me. I would if you could wait a bit and look at some of the new 4G phones that are coming out now. No way would I pay that kind of money for a Fascinate. Good phone, nothing against it, it's just going to seem dated within the next couple of months.

Waiting and taking a look at 4G phones is a good idea too.

Guys this is an early upgrade just after 13th months so if I don't get a phone b4 the 16th then I have to waitb7 more months meaning most of the 4g phones coming out during that time would be dated

I doubt any of those phones will be coning out within the next month or more. Plus, if you don't live in the city where 4G is available you will just be on a 3G network. You'll just be a badass with the best phone on the block hahahah

There's no activation fee for an upgrade no matter where you get it. And the fascinate is not a discontinued phone, and won't be for quite some time.

Just thought I better clear up the misinformation in this thread

Check best buy sales. Usual are promising and the rebate fee is taken care of by the store so you just get it by ticket price?

I switched from a BB Tour to the Fascinate this past November and am totally stoked that I did. Even without Froyo right now, this is the best phone I've ever had. It's basically a portable computer/phone/organizer all in one! Hands down the best phone I've ever bought, though Flash 10 on Froyo WOULD be nice...
