    The Mesmerize is US Cellular's version of the same phone. To my knowledge, the Fascinate isn't set up to work w/ Kies (Samsung's proprietary update software). I would suggest not messing with it.

    I agree. We don't have Kies... could Samsung really be SO REPUGNANT that they are just messing with all of us. I mean... the path and the page are for the VZW phone.... It's on the Fascinate support site...

    OMG I just want to kill them all....!!!!!

    I think they're just really confused. Samsung does all the testing of their own phones, regardless of carrier. Updates don't get released until the carrier is happy. I don't believe the holdup w/ our phones is Samsung. They're just doing what Verizon wants them to.

    As far as the Kies thing ... that's just strange.

    Would it be far fetched to say then, that maybe this is there unofficial way of saying "Hey we arent the ones holding this up" and thats whyd they would tease us and post this on the fascinate support page? lol

    Yes, the Mesmerize is identical to the Fascinate except for the branding. I have a friend that picked one up from US Cellular a couple of weeks ago and you can't tell the difference between mine and his, except for the branding.

    As Muji said, Samsung releases the software to the carrier, the carrier then adds the bloat and starts their testing. It is up to the carrier when the software is released. So the beef here is with VZ not Samsung.

    And just so everyone knows, US Cellular announced in Jan. that they would upgrade the Mesmerize to 2.2 in Feb. They missed that date by a month or so, but at least they delivered.

    This is the original thread: http://www.fascinateforums.com/forum...early-feb.html
