2.2 Froyo Update

Now that customers with the Samsung Epic are starting to receive their Froyo 2.2 upgrades - as rumored from several weeks ago; don't you think it's plausible to expect updates for the Samsung Fascinate to begin tomorrow?

...........as to the individual who has EB01 Froyo installed on their Fascinate, can you share info as to how you were able to get the new operating system installed on your phone?


Can't discuss it here but there are walkthroughs at androidcentral.com and xda-developers.com under the fascinate sections.  There is nothing definitive that EB01 will be the officialy update pushed from Verizon whenever they decide to.

There will be no Froyo or Gingerbread for the Fascinate. VZW said no more OS updates for the Fascinate and then told me buy a new 4g phone with all the goodies

  And as we have all seen before with VZW, I just chatted with someone on Verizons website, and he told me that "Yes, the make and model of the Samsung Fascinate is on the schedule to get Froyo."

  So who do you believe? As always, it is up to us to interpret.

Well I did find that most Verizon employees don't know much about fixing the phones or up coming phones or updates

Just installed my EB01 Froyo and WOW! No bugs so far and performance is through the roof. The ability to change the system font is awesome, the phone boots and is ready to use twice as fast, GPS is spot on and the camera had a firmware update that installs when you first open the camera which eliminated all the lag. System menus are much nicer looking and quicker. The double caps while typing is gone and email seems to push to the phone instantly. Bing is still the default search but is easily changed in the settings to google or now yahoo also. They also included a password or pin lock screen along with the pattern lock. The browser is awesome and flash is working out to be great, there was a update through the market already for flash today. All the blotwear is still there but hey, it's froyo! You will all be very pleased with it.

So you are saying that when you started your new job...on the first day..or lets say for the first week....you knew everything? I highly doubt it lil man... We are trained and given info at VZW's discretion, not that we choose not to give any info out or that we don't know..we simply cant because we don't  know every little single detail about every single phone. I can tell you this, I have my EB01 on my fascinate, yes i had a root canal on my phone. yes I work for VZW, no i dont care about the warranty, cuz I can simply change it back to stock just as easily as i perfromed the root canal.

 

You wanna know phones cmoing out? Fine 4G 1st is the HTC Thunderbolt (no surprise there) end of march will see the Bionic, June more than likely the LG Revolution then we will see the unnamed Samsung model. And yes there will also be an iphone 5 that will debut in June/July yes it will be a cdma/gsm hybrid phone more than likely a 4G phone as well. Also dont forget about the onslaught of the Xpeira phones, as well as all the new Touchscreen Blackberrys to be released sometime 3rd Quarter

 

To wrap this lil rant up, cut VZW employees and tech guys some slack they/we are doing the best we can with what we are given.
