    I got a Fascinate about two weeks ago and I cant take it anymore. I'm hoping somebody can direct me on what to do. I talked to Verizon today and they had me do a reset and it did nothing.

    I have three email accounts set up in the stock app. They will ocassionally sync, however most of the time they wont. I can get it to sync manually by opening the app and hitting refresh. This works most of the time, but not always.

    The Facebook app is set to notify me and never has, and the Feeds & Updates widget is to refresh every 30 minutes and will not. I have to manually refresh it as well.

    The voice dialing most of time won't work, and the phone app itself will ocassionally lock up and not respond.

    I've read about a number of issues on the forum similar to mine and am wondering if anybody has any insight on how I can fix them.


    HELP!

    X hit the nail on the head. You have to have background sync activated or the widgets and email won't work.

    Not sure about your other problems.. but I'm pretty sure Facebook notifications doesn't work on 2.1 (which is what we have at the moment). Someone can correct me if I'm wrong...

    root and start over. you will enjoy your phone much more. however if you dont want to, at this point i would send for a warenty replacement. sometimes its just easier to start over than to spend all that time trying to fix it.

    Yes and no. We are still able to get the age old Message and Event notifications that we have always been able to. BUT you need to have facebook running in the background to do it. If you "auto task kill" it, *shudder* then it closes and you won't get those updates.

    Like ngreen said not sure about anything else but this one thing. Hope it helps
