I've been spoiled...now I'm stuck waiting

    I've been with AT&T for years, and I picked up a Captivate with my upgrade last month. It was my first android phone and except for the flakey GPS it was a great phone. Awesome screen, snappy interface, and in low usage times, I was getting 2+ days between charges.

    But, then I found out that I can get 20% off Verizon through my company, AND Verizon is now offering a special rate plan (like a test market) for central Texas customers only. It's umlimited talk and text to any mobile number (on any carrier) + 700 minutes for landline numbers for $99 for 2 phone. So, shoot, I figured, I'd switch to Verizon. So, I took back my Captivate.

    And now off to Verizon!!! .... and....well.... no Galaxy S here..... :(

    So, I'm stuck trying to decide if I want to wait for it to come out, or just suck it up and jump on the DInc bandwagon.


    Ok, I'm done venting. :)

    I would wait! The Incredible is great, but the Fascinate will be better, from everything I've researched, including friends who one a Galaxy S variant on another carrier. Don't sell yourself short!

    I let a skillful saleswoman convince me to get the Eris about 40 days before the Incredible came out. Big mistake. I knew the Incredible on Verizon was coming down the pipe, but my impatience landed me a phone that has been a nightmare. I'm on my third one.

    And many of the Incredibles are getting stuck with LCDs rather than AMOLED screens. I would wait for Samsung. I really hope we don't have to wait much longer!!!


    PLEASE be sooner rather than lateR!!! :eek:

    I wasn't aware of that. When did that start?

    I've never been on Verizon. So, does anyone have a junk just-a-phone that I could use in the meantime? :) What did Verizon call it? Customer Provided Handset, I think. That way I would at least get on the new plan, start with Verizon now, and then wait for the Fascinate in a month or two and lock in my contract then. (Edit: Wow, people on craigslist want TOO much money for their used Verizon phones. Welcome to the Cricket/Pocket re-flash effect.)

    BTW, was there ever a definitive answer if the Fascinate will have dual LED flashes with the camera?

    If you want a VZW phone, i would go post in the classifieds (free or not) or go buy a go phone.

    I picked up a used Eris for $100, rooted it and put KaosFroyo on it. Makes it very usable.

    Why not get the Incredible now and return it when the Fascinate comes out? Should come out in less than your 30-day return period.

    This would be my suggestion.
