Verizon commences its Samsung Fascinate update roll out
Samsung Fascinate owners are just one step away from having less aggravation with their Android powered handset now that Verizon has started to roll out its expected software update.

For those who already forgot what's expected from it, the update will provide an instant notification of Visual Voice Mail in the messaging bar, the No Service audio alert has been taken off, improved sync between email & phone accounts, improved Exchange password alerts, there will be a notification prompt when switching to airplane mode, the ability to search the phone while on a phone call, and faster switching from 3G to 1xRTT connection.

Yeah, it might not address all of those known issues that Verizon has been aware about, but it at least shows their commitment in getting the handset into tip top shape. We'd imagine that additional updates will subsequently be rolled out down the road, like Froyo, to give handset owners a complete experience.

Im with Tmobile with the Galaxy phone and would rather have the X too! This GPS problem and no Froyo crap is bummin me out. The energy spent on the Tab should be put into the customers that already paid Samsung money. I want to use the G word. Those guys do make a nice phone though. Korea is comming on strong!
