Anyone used this interface? Glitchy? Problems? What was your
impression? Looks like it's just Android, which I'm going to switch
to once the iphone AT&T contract is up in March. Not for Rush poker,
but, phone access could be interesting.
Needs Froyo (2.2 OS) or higher to run it...
I'm still stuck on 2.1 for at least another month (my carrier keeps
pushing back OTA update dates because Verizon bricked similar
phones trying to push updates a couple months back.)
Let me guess...you have a Samsung Fascinate or one of the other Galaxy
S phone variants. Correct?
Yes, the mesmerize (it's identical to the fascinate sans verizon's bloatware)
I, too, was sucked into the Samsung BS. I finally gave up waiting
for a software update that I was hoping would fix the problems I was
having with my phone.
What kind of problems were you having?
I've got 3 of the same (mesmerize, one for myself, wife, and oldest son)
and haven't had issues with any of them!
I'm a heavy user of the phone's calendar and alarms. I depend on an
audible warning to help me avoid missing appointments. With my
phone, the alarms often failed to go off.
As I mentioned, I also use the phone as a music player. I had a
recurring problem where the sound would shut off, requiring me to
reboot the phone. Not as critical as the first problem, but still
Finally, Verizon tech supprt offered to send
me a replacement phone on the theory that the problems might be
hardware-realted. I knew they weren't, since I'd already exchanged
the phone once at the local store. So I asked them if the
replacement phone could be a different model, and they said yes.
I traded the thing in for a Droid X. Much better phone. And it
comes with Froyo already installed.
Although Samsung really butchered the Android OS,
Don't be too quick to blame them, Verizon butchered the hell out of
it themselves! (Mine doesn't have all the bloat the verizon models do...
i.e., bing search engine, et al.) Only thing 'extra' my phone came with
was an additional widget gallery (samsung widgets) a carrier branded
navigation app, and a samsung gallery app which might just be a link
that takes you to a web page (didn't look into it) USCC did a good
job of keeping the shit off initially (and lets the users shit up their own
phones! <3 droids)
My understanding is that Samsung did all the programming, not Verizon.
Perhaps they put all that stuff on there at Verizon's request.
there's one thing
they actually did right. For music playback, the Samsung supports
lossless file formats, whereas the Droid doesn't. That's a bit of a
problem for me, as I'm using the phone as an iPod replacement, and I
have a lot of music in those formats.
My only gripe is having to wait for Froyo ... OTA updates have been
pushed back a couple times, but it looks like it might actually happen
early march. Fingers crossed =)
There's been a lot of talk that Samsung has been holding back Froyo
intentionally. Supposedly, they've been trying to squeeze additional
money out of the cell phone companies to pay for the update.
