I personally think this is ridiculous.  I know just like others that I do not want to brick my phone but I think I am capable of following the directions.  If I thought the 2.2 was actually going to give me something more noticeable as far as operation without the battery drain, I'd try it.  What I truly find funny is all those who don't want to risk it so they'd rather complain to the point of sounding ridiculous then TAKE CONTROL of the situation themselves.  I have known several people who purchased the iphone from then, the sole provider, and found out what a monopoly it all is to own an iphone.  They have no means of customization with that device and so many of them used the same methods as other posters has suggested in this forum to get the actions out of the device that they ultimately wanted.  It worked way back then, it works now on more than this device.  I have found the same complaint from many users of different carriers.  It's typically, "they only care about me when I am signing the new contract, after that I mean nothing to them because they only care about new signers, not loyal customers."  I find folks that only want to change providers simple because they want someone new to argue and fight with.  Because guess what?  That is exactly what you will get.  The whole facebook whiners fest is ridiculous.  If you can't stand your provider, pay the fee and jump your contract, be smarter about your phone purchase and stop complaining that you bought something on the promise of something with no written guarantees. Maybe then we can get back to what this forum is suppose to be for.  A community of persons trying to help others that own the same type of device, find the tips and tricks and working of the device so we can get the most out of our PHONES.  It is a PHONE with benefits. 

 

I chose the phone for the hardware.  I chose the provider for coverage. I chose this forum thinking that I would get more help and support.  The only thing I feel cheated on is the junked up posts of complaining that seems to go on here more than advise and helpful hints.  What is next people?  Are you going to join facebook and twitter and any other social network you can and complain that this device doesn't offer 4G?  this whole rant is stupid and getting more ridiculous by the day.  By doing nothing you are choosing to do something and that is lay around like a bunch of sheep waiting on your technology leader to hold your hand into another pasture waiting for slaughter.  WHATEVER already.

@ALL WHO CLAIM THAT DEMANDING AN UPDATE IS STUPID. I BEG TO DIFFER.

 

Don't like it...don't do it...go update your phone by yourself. We are, those who decide not to hack our phone, don't call you stupid...as so stay away from our actions.

 

We demand what was promissed to us. And we will get it for us and millions of others who are too shy to speak up.

ladybell:


That's OK, you are entitled to your opinion. I believe that most of us have the capability to R&R our cells. The point is, we should not have been placed in the position to have to do this, it should have been given to us officially months ago.


What we are doing is entirely for the purpose of helping others as well as ourselves. The heading at the top of the forum says Droid Community, Learn, Interact, Engage. This is exactly what we are doing!


You may find our efforts ridiculous. Tell me, will you accept the update when it becomes available because of the efforts of those confronting samsung and verizon? If your answer is yes then most of what you said in your post will be meaningless!


You said "By doing nothing you are choosing to do something and that is lay around like a bunch of sheep waiting on your technology leader to hold your hand into another pasture waiting for slaughter." You are absolutely right. That is why we are NOT laying around like passive sheep waiting for the slaughter, we would rather confront the supposed technology leader to get what was promised to all of us!


If you or anyone else is offended by what we are posting, then why do you torment yourself to read them? Just bypass them and be on your way.


In case you change your mind, here is the link for you to join us on FaceBook. If you will share in the rewards then you should share in the effort to obtain them!

Thanks to our Community Members for all the feedback. We apologize for any delay; we understand and truly do appreciate your excitement concerning the impending release of Froyo 2.2 for the Samsung Fascinate.  We do ask your continued patience as we address the update concerns. The update was announced at the CED 2011, but at this time we do not have a date as to when it will be available since we do not want to set a specific date that may or may not be met with the update delivery.  As stated, the updating process does involve much testing and arranging about how the update will affect the device's operation before it is implemented and finalized. Please understand that Verizon Wireless will release the stable finished update to you as soon as it is ready.

 

We are committed to giving you the best, and we will not release the update until we are confident that it will run smoothly without issues or bugs. We again appreciate your understanding and patience concerning this matter relating to the update requests. 

  

Sincerely,

Oh leave the poor VZW guy alone he dont know anything more then one of us on if and when there might be an update to Froyo or anything else. He was nice and kind explaining what he does know so give all VZW employees and Samsung a break. Just sell your phone and buy a new one other then Samsung with all the goodies on it and best OS.

 God Bless Verizon and their team of very polite people.

You're correct the verizon tech probably only knows what he is told. Part of the problem is that many in samsung and verizon know what is going on but sternly refuses to inform their customers! Their silence and flicking us away like a crumb on their three piece suits is a huge part of why we are uniting to inform them how we feel. In another post samsung was quoted as saying they didn't even know their customers were upset. Come April 1st they will get the message! Verizon is also responsible for not releasing FROYO. We'll have to see if we agree on contacting them with one voice also!

 

Those of you who have not stepped forward now is the time to put your words in action. Join us on April 1st to send a united message to samsung, follow this link to FaceBook and leave your comments.

Thank you for actually addressing the issue in a direct manner, if the delay is to achieve a quality stable product than so be it, I can respect that. What has frustated many Fascinate owners is the refusal of Samsung & Verizon to officially make an announcement that the update was being worked on. It was also equally frustating the position that other Fascinate owners took against the so called "whiners". Calling people stupid for believing a Verizon representative telling them that they could expect the update and could  buy with confidence.

 

I am a patient man and don't have a problem waiting as long as the lines of communications are open and Verizon does not stoop to corporate SILENCE, that I do find insulting. By the way would you mind providing a direct link to the CED 2011 Verizon press release in regards to updating the Fascinate, I missed that release, Thank you.
