  Are you asking if the Samsung Fascinate is still in stock? While I loved the Fascinate, is there a reason you want that as apposed to other phones? Possibly ones that are 4G?

The Samsung Fascinate has most likely reached its EOL date by now.  You might better to select one of the new phones.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

  I am sure you could still find the Fascinate for sale somewhere, but it was replaced by the Stratosphere, which is a 4G phone. The big difference physically between the Fascinate and the Stratosphere is the slider keyboard.

  I just did my upgrade, and went with a 4G phone, even though 4G is not available just yet in my home region. I wanted to make sure I was ready for it when it comes.

In my opinion the Fascinate was replaced by the charge if you go by model numbers.

The Fascinate was SCH-i500 and the Charge was SCH-i510

The Continuum was SCH-i400 and the Stratosphere was SCH-i405

The specs between the Charge and the Stratosphere and Fascinate are all pretty close. All have 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processors, 800x480 Super AMOLED screens and Touchwiz.

The Charge and Stratosphere both have 3G and 4G, the Fascinate was only 3G

I bought my Stratosphere used for about $70 from Cowboom, an online company owned by Best Buy. If you need one I think used would be the best way to go. I just picked one up because it was a few months until my upgrade and I wanted something newer.

That is what I thought by the numbers, but when the Stratosphere came out, I asked a couple of Verizon people, and they told me that it was Fascinate - Stratosphere - Charge.... Either way.... They upgrade the Fascinate and Continuum (What a joke of phone support for this one, Samsung lost big time on this one) to 4G phones.
