    My wife has a stock Fascinate and it is not rooted. After she did the update a couple of days ago, her camera has stopped working. When you launch it, it says "Please wait..." and never opens. Also her messaging is slow to open. When she opens it, it has a black screen for several moments and then it opens. Lastly, her phone seems to move slightly slower than the previous version. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I'm no expert, but if you take it into the store they'll ask you if you did a cold boot (power off, remove battery, replace, power up).

    Next thing to do is a factory reset. It's in the Menu/Settings/Privacy menu.

    It'll be like having just bought the phone; be sure important things are backed up.

    If those two don't fix it, then it's time to bring it in.

    Camera Issues

    I'm having the same issue. Not really looking for a factory reset as there are several quite large apps that I have which can't be saved to my card. Any other work arounds yet? Also after the factory reset, I'm assuming it still use froyo as the os and not revert back to eclair?

    Thanks

    Your apps are backed up by the Market. The only issue would be if you had data tied with the app, for example Home Run Battle 3D. Your app would return but anything you purchased or won would be lost.

    well, I factory reset and it fixed the camera stuff but I did lose lots of apps, even ones that should have been saved in the market ie things that are no longer available in the market. I had saved a lot of my apps to sd card as well assuming the phone would be able to run them immediately after the reset which was not the case (any fixes or tips for that?). Also things like slang saved for texting and swype keyboard are gone.

    Yeah, i'm still running froyo. So the reset fixes the cam but the phone was still laggy. To fix the additional lag, undocking and removing the mem card worked wonders.

    [Fix] Titanium Backup was also Restoring Camera Issue!!

    Titanium Backup was restoring the camera issue after hard resetting had fixed it. To resolve this, I performed the steps listed in my post at AndroidCentral:

    Problems after 2.2 update - post here. - Page 23 - Android Forums

    Hope that helps someone.
