    Having the ability to quickly launch a 911 call for police/emergency assistance is a very important function on our phones, and recently a bug in the DL09 maintenance update broke this feature for some Samsung Fascinate users. Luckily, Verizon just sent a free text to all DL09 devices that a fix is forthcoming. The update is reported to be coming soon to the Fascinate owners facing this problem and once the OTA update is installed, your devices will be able to get assistance even if it’s locked.

    For the time being Verizon had this to say:

    Do all other Android phones have this feature when using a pattern lock? It would seem to me that it would make a butt dial to 911 much more likely.

    All the button does on my phone is bring up the dialer, not sure if it restricts it to where it will only call out to 911 or not never really messed w/ it.
