    I will run the risk of estimating (based on current activities) that 2.2 will release by the end of Feb.

    interesting ;)

    i think it would be kind of ridiculous for the mesmorize to release froyo first (i think thats scheduled for march)

    Hmmm...Samsung doing something ridiculous...yeah that'll never happen...that'd be like the Acclaim getting Froyo before us...:rolleyes:

    If it wasnt for that hardware and the non-locked down-ness [just made that term up now]

    yeah the rather uninspiring acclaim (no offense to those who have it/use it...just relative to the galaxy s phones) is one issue

    but the mesmorize is a knock off of the fascinate...so it d be akin to the little brother beating you in basketball....just aint right :eek:

    but then again...many things samsung/verizon seem to do "aint right"

    Quick question: I'm a new smart phone user... my old phone was upgraded every 2 years, is it the same with these smart phones? I don't want to have this phone anymore...

    Are you still within 30 days of purchase? If not your probably stuck

    Nah I waited because I was told when I bought the phone and the last day of my trial that it would be out in a week or two.. plus I like the phone. Just want to be freaking up to date

    We all have our reasons for wanting 2.2....but what exactly do you feel you.are missing by being on 2.1?

    Well, you are both right and wrong... True a user needs variety, but instead of updating a phone that has the capable hardware, Samsung chooses to release another phone with slightly better specs and the newest software. If Apple took on that persona, they'd be at iPhone 40 by now.

    I just keep kicking myself for not going with the droid x lol I might have to end up rooting this thing after all

    It's funny, I played with the X and Fascinate for quite a while in the store prior to buying the Fascinate (Droid 2 for a short time).

    The Fascinate won because it seemed a near perfect upgrade/transition from my Eris (minus the trackball), form factor wise, etc.

    The X still looks great to me, though.

    yeah the x was a good phone...just again my thoughts on motorola lead me to ditch it :)

    Well I was already running 2.2 on my droid but contract was up so I had to get a new phone :cool: I liked both the X and the Fascinate but I went with the Fascinate because it fit in my pocket better and I was assured by the rep that 2.2 was "on it's way soon!" lol My bad for believing, but this is gonna be the last samsung phone i ever buy

    Yeah, just looking at the big picture. It seems like Google would be alienating cell companies if they were to hold out on the updates to the OS. I don't believe the VZ guy in the least bit.

    LOL, thanks for the laugh. "Google owns the coding". Also love all these "customer service guy told me so" posts.

    I was on the phone with a VZW level 3 support tech after the DL09/Mac debacle....

    He actually SUGGESTED that I root, and that if I did and installed a Froyo build, that would fix the Mac problem. When I explained to him that because I had SO much trouble with this phone, I was afraid to root it and void the warranty, he said "Oh, they never check that".

    Lol. It really depends on the person you talk to and how experienced they take you for. When I buy news phones and talk to the sales people they never get uptight about mentioning rooting and have admitted to doing it themselves as well.

    And as for warranty, if you ever have to send it in, all you have to do it roll everything back to stock; and if it breaks to the point it wont turn on, they just mark it as DOA when they get it.

    Kinda weird that they would suggest that....but regardless there isn't a totally usable froyo build to flash yet anyway
