    I sold two verizon galaxy s's around 7 pm pacific time tonight and to my suprise there was two major updates. After the updates the phones now have wifi hotspot and cool new wallpapers as well as some other nice features that I have heard only Froyo comes with. Can someone else confirm this with me by checking their phones for updates?:D

    if you have another opportunity with these or other phones, go to:
    settings>about phone> firmware version

    let us know what it says.

    I believe these were small updates (fixes) that verizon had pushed to the phone back from Sept. I recently got my Fascinate a few weeks ago and it too had an update, not Froyo though. Also this phone already came with Wifi tether, which in some other phones isn't available until Froyo (i.e. HTC Incredible)

    well said. it seems that verizon did not manually update many of the fascinates to the latest ota before selling them. if it was an os change like 2.2 they tend to do it, but didnt seem to care about a maintence update.

    InnoPath ActiveCare
    Server unavailable
    Code:500

    This is while checking on wifi and has shown this message for teh past 2 days.

    I have an X and have no problem checking for updates.

    You can't check for updates over WiFi.
