Neither samsung or verizon has released the official froyo 2.2 update, we have been waiting months for this. You can unofficially get the update on your fascinate but are taking the chance of bricking your cell. I don't personally encourage you to do so but if you are interested go to the XDA website where you could check on what you need to do. Many fascinate owners on this forum have installed froyo on their own and claim it is almost impossible to brick your cell. It is up to you to take the chance or not!

 

There is an app for the flash player called SkyFire. I don't use it so I can't comment if it is good or not.

I tried sykfire and I do use it for most of my browsing, but in my particualr case it was no help at all so I realized I needed the Flash Player to view certain web sites that I view online, ie my Bible Studies require Adobe Flash

You have 3 choices

1. Wait for verizon- People have been waiting 8 months though

2. put a non offical version on

3.take it back

 

 

I choose option 2 and I could not be happier with my phone

Mad at Verizon & Sammy

 

You have to make the choice also

Options

1) Install Skyfire browser. It translates Flash to something your phone can understand and works for the most part, though the process is a little cumbersome (and flaky at times).

2) Unofficial 2.2 has been released with Flash support. Try it

3) Return the phone

The official FroYo update is being sent out OTA to the Fascinate is stages starting today and continuing for the next few weeks. You will get a notification when it is available for your phone. You can also check for the update by going to Settings > About phone > check for software update (or something similar)

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