Verizons Fascinate has some issues, well a lot of issues actually

We all know in the world of technology, nothing is every perfect or at its best, only because of the rapid growth within the market. But due to that rapid growth we see companies push products out that are not necessarily at their prime. If you keep testing it and working out all the bugs, the next best thing would have already released and your whole campaign surrounding the said device will then be shot too… well you know where. The rate at which companies push tech based products out is surely good for the goose, however, pushing them out too soon to keep up with the Jones’s is surely screwing the gander.

Boy Genius Report has done it again. They have unearthed a large laundry list of Known Issues from there seemingly very reliable Verizon source. The list goes on to show the issues with the new Samsung Fascinate that was known to Verizon before the recent release of the device. This list is truly epic; however, the idea here is that most of the issues will surely be worked out by the time the device gets its first software update, as most mobile devices do. Reminiscent of “oh we’ll fix it in the mix”. When reading through the list of issues I have pulled out some of the key points that I feel are problematic.

Call Disconnect:
If you are on a call or in the process of receiving an incoming call and you press the search button the call may be disconnected.
Short term work around: There is no short term work around for this issue
Planned Resolution: A fix for this issue will be included in the MR 1 release for this device.

 

Call Waiting Caller ID;

If you are on a call and a second call comes in, you get the correct Caller ID information. If you answer the second call, the caller ID screen goes blank and does not show any caller information.
Short term work around: There is no short term work around for this issue
Planned Resolution: A fix for this issue is under review for inclusion in a future MR.

Not Available via Wi-Fi:
If the device is in WIFI mode you will not be able to access the over the air software update system (FOTA).
Short term work around: You will need to turn off WIFI in order to access the FOTA system
Planned Resolution: A fix for this issue is under review for inclusion in a future MR.

And the list goes on and on. Surely not a good start to the Galaxy S line under Verizon’s brand, but issues like these are not common per-say, but usually found on new devices that hit the market. Think iPhone 4 if you need an example

So tell us what you think of the issues plaguing the new Fascinate, you can check out the full list over at
