Who got a Fascinate today from BB
Who else got a Fascinate today for free form Best Buy? My brother and I both got one and we are loving it. He upgraded from a LG Dare and I upgraded from a Palm Pre Plus.
Now I just have to stop playong with mine long enough to root it and debing and lagfix it.
The GPS locks on in a few seconds and finds me within 10 meters every time and there is almost no lag whatsoever.

As bad as my experience with the first one was, I actually picked up another yesterday too. I had been asking around and no one reported any other phone (Incredible, Droid 2/X, etc.) as having appreciably better signal strength or battery life, so I figured I might as well give it another shot. I thought it would be easier to live with a few issues if the phone was free instead of $200.
Well, it still has the side-tone issue, but this new ones has far, far better battery life. It's been unplugged for almost 12 hours now, and it still has about 75% battery remaining. My first one would have been stone dead hours ago, which was a big part of why I returned it. Don't know, maybe the first one was bad or something.
So far, so good with this one.

I came from a Bold to the X than the Fascinate. I am loving my Fascinate. It is a nice large screen, but not too big. I felt like the X didn't fit in my hand. But even though the Fascinate isn't too much smaller, it just fits in my hand better.

I switched from the storm on Friday. I have been doing my research on my next phone which was due for an upgrade in December. I planned on getting the fascinate from best buy since they have them regularly for $149 without a rebate. Checked their website and saw the free phone deal so I transferred an upgrade I never used on another line on my plan and I've been loving it all weekend. Rooted and debinged as soon as I got home
The only thing I miss is blackberry messenger....

They do a "Free Phone Friday's" sale every week where they choose 1 phone from each carrier to be free for just that day. Next week their free phone for Verizon will be different. But from what I've heard the Fascinate has been their choice before so I wouldn't be surprised if it happens again. Just check their website on Friday mornings and you'll see which ones they've chosen for that week.
Keep in mind this is in lieu of their 2 year contract price so you either need to be signing a new deal or be eligible to upgrade. But it's straight up free. No mail-in's or anything.
