    I am considering getting the fascinate (Verizon's version of the Galaxy S) but had been hearing that Samsung has weak radios and the reception is bad.

    Any truth to this? How has your signal/reception been?

    My radio performance (3G and WiFi) has been very good.

    I have had mine for a week and live in a 2G only coverage area and use Wifi in my house with no problems. There may be a slight problem if you use a cisco router, the protocol it uses seems to have conflicts with samsung phones. I have read this, but have no experience with it.

    Samsung has always had weak radios, that's why the SAR ratings are always so low.
