Is this an official Verizon date for Gingerbread on Fascinate?  Will this be available on a PC download or through an update on the phone itself?



According to the unknown sources it originated from it's being field tested by VZW.  I'm currently running it just to test it out.  It runs pretty good, battery is better than stock Froyo, and 3G signal is good and steady.  If not an official version it has to be real close.................

I'm glad there's an official announcement that my Fascinate will soon get GB since my kids with the Incredible got it. Few weeks ago. However, any news on when the Continuum will get an update to Froyo, or hopefully GB also? This is pretty disappointing especially since I convinced my husband to get the Continuum because I loved the Fascinate and VZW discontinued it.

Thanks Steve!

 

How did you get an early release?  Will Verizon release the update through the phone or KIES Mini?

  Now see, in my house, it was the other way around to some extent. I had the Fascinate, and it has been great, and my wife was due for an upgrade. She liked my smartphone, but she instead got the Continuum, because she thought the Fascinate was too big for her. I told her that she would not be happy with the smaller screem, but she thought it would be good. She got the same line from Verizon that I got, "It will be updated to the new OS soon, so those features should work then, just wait for it.."  Since then, the Fascinate has been updated, and the Continuum has been left in the dust, with probably no chance of any upgrades. And she has also agreed that the screen is too small for her, and that she should have gotten the Fascinate.

  I feel bad for the Continuum users, but then again, she has not had to endure the problems the Fascinate has had.

Looks like the Charge is going to or already is being updated to Gingerbread.  Nothing on the Fascinate yet.

The Charge 2.3 GB update was supposed to push out yesterday, didn't really hear about anyone getting it OTA, but this morning quite a few people on this forum reported getting it. I still haven't gotten it OTA yet, but I guess the bigger pushes are supposed to be Thursday and Friday for us, so I hope I have it by then. Hopefully you Fascinate owners get the GB update by Christmas or just after it, sounds like it is not too far off.
