Leaked Verizon document reveals all known issues with the Fascinate
Oh, the marvels of instant information access, corporations must really hate it! Someone from Verizon has outed the internal document that carriers cobble together from customer complaints, and their own testing procedures, on issues present with the Fascinate.

It is a rather big list, but if you own a Fascinate or are planning to buy one, we are sure you will be interested in what issues might pop up out of the blue. At least until the first software update for the handset arrives. Some are pretty mundane, some are really surprising, in a "how'd they miss that?" sort of way. It looks like the GPS issue that plagues the rest of the Galaxy S gang, has not passed by the Fascinate. They call it latency, but we all know what it is. We post them all on a few pages for your viewing pleasure:
