When in the messaging app, you have a list of all the conversations you have (ie: peoples names) If you swype right on the name you can call the person and if you swype left on the name it opens a message to that person. I find it to be pretty convenient since my most visited app on my phone is the messaging app. If this has already been posted sorry for the double post.
I have a friend that has a Vibrant and when they are in the contacts list they can swipe left on a name and instantly be taken to the messaging app, and a swipe right on the name calls them. Why doesn't the Fascinate do this or can this option be turned on somewhere?
Excellent! I haven't found a way to do favorites yet (mostly because I've spent every night since I've had this phone on here trying to comprehend all this info! lol) but I keep the conversations in the message app of those that I frequently talk/text with.
Regarding Vibrant vs. Fascinate, if you call Samsung Tech Support Level 2, they will tell you "because one is GSM and the other is CDMA..." and then they will argue with you regarding the fact that that premise makes no sense. Don't get me started...
Simply stated, the GalaxyS line will have nuances with every carrier even when running the same OS. Think of these as "features" or "not features."
