    Just wanted to stop in and say Hi to you other Droid users, experts and genuises. I just bought my first Droid, a Samsung Fascinate. In fact, it is my first smart phone. For the past 10 years I have have just regular feature phones from AT and T - a couple of Nokias, a Razor, and a Motorola. Boring.

    I was all set, with money in hand, to waltz into Best Buy and buy an iPhone 4 until I laid my eyes on the Samsung Fascinate. I fell in love with the 4" super AMOLED screen, as well as the whole look of the phone. Yeah, I know it sorta does look like an iPhone. LOL

    So back to the drawing board I went, to read up on the Fascinate and compare it to other Droids and of course the iPhone. I seriously considered the Captivate too since I was already with AT&T and thought about the Droid X more than once. However, after handling the Fascinate, I vetoed those two as neither felt as good in my hand as the gorgeous Fascinate plus I thought they were uuugly. The reviews I read all over the internet also sold me on the Fascinate. So bye bye iPhone, hello Droid, hello Galaxy S!

    So far, in the week I have had it, I love it. I still have a LOT to learn about it. Oh yea, and I plan to root it - the right way hopefully. I do not like all of the crapware Verizon has put on it, despise Bing - love Google everything. I knew about these drawbacks before I bought it and switched to Verizon. I am hoping the root will get rid of these flaws. I also cannot wait for the 2.2 update, not to mention Gingerbread.

    Anyway, that's my phone story. I look forward to learning more from you guys. Who knows, maybe one day, I may even be able to contribute something on here. Thanks to y'all ahead of time! :)
