ED05 update for the Samsung Fascinate is now available & patches up some bugs
More than two weeks ago, we first got wind of an upcoming minor software update for the Samsung Fascinate that’s expected to iron out some of the handset’s nagging kinks – like its incoming call connectivity. Luckily, the update has finally arrived and is being rolled out to handsets as we speak.

Besides it fixing the incoming call connectivity issues, the ED05 software update for the Fascinate also manages to smooth things out with SMS problems. Specifically, after sending an SMS message to multiple contacts, single-recipient SMS messages will be sent correctly afterwards. Moreover, SMS message reply is sent to the correct recipient as well. And finally, the update also comes preloaded with Google Books – so if you haven’t installed it yet, you’ll find it on there once the update is installed.

Getting close to a year into its life, let’s hope that this one solves all the issues surrounding the aging handset – if not, well, you can always think about upgrading to its successor once it’s officially announced.

... Were replacing all the Fascinates w/ the Incredible 2s and the X^2. Under warranty though. Forget "patching" the existing software and get an Incredible 2, muchhhh better phone and its a refurb haha
