VZW Samsung Fascinate update coming soon?

| September 21, 2010 | Reply

While we all sit patiently waiting for our Droid X Froyo update from Verizon Wireless it seems that VZW has an update being prepared for the Samsung Fascinate as well.  This is not exactly a Froyo update, but still some decent, and needed improvements.  These updates will address some of the initial reported bugs when the Fascinate launched so I am assuming this will make some of you happy.  There is no clear answer as to when this update will be released, but I am going to agree with our friends over at Android Central and say we could see this as soon as later this week!  Check out the Verizon Wireless PDF down below and be sure to check back for updates.

Verizon Samsung Fascinate update

Looks like the Droid X isn’t the only Verizon phone about to be updated. There are some fixes coming down the pike for the Samsung Fascinate. No Froyo yet in version i500.DI01 (and no mention of that pesky Bing thing, either). Instead, here’s what you’ll get:

  • Instant notification of Visual Voice Mail in the messaging bar.
  • Improved sync between phone and e-mail accounts.
  • Prompt notification when switching to airplane mode.
  • Faster switching from 3G to 1x RTT.
  • Search phone while on a call.
  • Improved Exchange password alerts.
  • No Service audio alert removed.

So, it takes care of some of the bugs that were on that leaked launch list, but we wait for Android 2.2, among other things. When will the update be released? We’ve had no official word yet, but we’ve been told Thursday is a strong possibility. Stay tuned. [Verizon – PDF]
