I got the Vibrant. Love it. Just have one question. When you put phone on vibrate it doesn't vibrate when you receive new SMS. Is there way to fix it?
However I hear that the T-Mobile gel case is a bit more secure than this one. There is an abundance of cheaper ones and I'm surprised you're not finding those..
LTE has arrived. The third carrier in Las Vegas with 10x10 LTE coverage
Coverage will expand to 100 million LTE pops for the first half of 2013, with the second half of 2013 expanding to 200 million POPs covered. Release 10 LTE (2×10, 2×20) will be better performing than all other competitors.
T-Mobile USA. “This year, we’re stepping on the gas again. We are making continued coverage improvements and launching an advanced LTE network
I thought the dimensions were slightly different between the S and the captivate and the vibrant. So the verizon fascinate is the same dimension also? I know the Epic 4g has a slide out keyboard so that's definately different.
The Fascinate is thicker and there is an LED flash to make room for.
I got mine today! Got it rooted and all my apps/settings copied over. Awesome phone!
Just used my upgrade for the Vibrant. Got it through T-MO CS for $150, no stupid $18 upgrade fee, and the $20 Android Preferred Data Plan. Very happy with CS. Cannot wait to get it. I am a bit ticked that there do not seem to be many cases for it. Also waiting for BestSkinsEver to release a skin for it. I love BSE; had them for my last 2 phones, and they are amazing and much cheaper than Invisible Shield/Ghost Armor.
Radio Shack has a thin black gel skin that looks really good on this phone surprisingly and I'm not normally a fan of gel skins.
Thanks for the updates everyone. Just a few questions.
1) Is this phone quad band GSM, in other words does it include the 2 bands used in Europe (900/1800)? Am wondering if I can use this to make phone calls in Europe.
2) Can this phone tether to your laptop using Bluetooth and/or wifi (or any other wire-free method)? And if it can, does T-Mo have a problem with it? The reason I ask that last question is because originally I was able to tether with my Sony Ericsson TM506 using my Total Internet 19.99 plan, but it seemed like many people received T-Mo OTA or downloaded SE updates crippling this function.
3) Can I use my old 19.99 Total Internet plan on this phone?
Thanks in advance.

2)Yes, if you root you can install wi-fi tether or use PDA net (USB) if you dont want to root.
3) The $20 Total Internet wont work, but CS can add a Pref android plan for $20. You loose the the Hotspot wi-fi feature (at Starbucks, Kinkos...ect) don't know if you use that....
About wired tethering, try samsung moment USB driver/application
Use "USB debugging mode" Settings->Applications->Developers when you're ready.
