    Samsung Fascinate Launched with Known Issues?


    Verizon Wireless apparently already has an internal "known issues" list floating around for the brand new Samsung Fascinate. Not good news considering the phone was officially released in stores yesterday. There are reports however, saying that a maintenance software update is coming soon. It will be interesting to see how many of the issues below will actually be resolved and how quickly they can get it done.

    I never thought too much about GPS issues until I got my X and my Droid became a 2nd phone. (I cant say backup cuz I still use it for things right now, it just cant make/receive calls....not activated anymore.)

    One of the things I use it for is a stand alone GPS. I'm so glad I can do that with an Android phone not in phone use anymore. If a phone does have GPS issues and it cant be fixed, the value could go down quick when trying to sell it.

    But it seems like some ppl are having no GPS issues tho. Some folks do have to realize "use wireless networks" isnt the same as using the GPS satellites. In my case with my Droid, I cant use the "use wireless networks" setting. I cant get Wifi everywhere when out n about. And if its not activated anymore, cant use mobile networks....

    The GPS issue is something we gotta keep an eye on tho. I barely use mine, but the times I did it came in real handy.
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    If I am not mistaken, isnt it only a problem with the GPS on the search function? You can still use the maps and other apps with GPS without any issues.... right?

    remember when you first got the D1? it had the rotery lock screen? then a manditory install was required? (usually the verizon rep updated your phone for you and created entered your google account for you). now we have the straight across lock screen.

    that first manditoy update was the same thing samsung is doing now.
