Samsung Fascinate Update: Maintenance Release, Not Froyo


For all you Samsung Fascinate owners I’ve got some good news, and some not so good news.

The good news is that you’re going to be getting an update called “DL09” which is essentially a maintenance release that addresses a number of bugs and issues.

The not so good news is that it’s not Froyo.

Bloatware Updates:

+ Updated versions of preloaded applications, including V CAST

videos, City ID, VZ Navigator, and Amazon Kindle


+ Ability to change the reminder time and alert tone for

calendar events

+ Improved the update consistency of the feed and widgets

+ Music now pauses if you unplug your wired headset or turn

off your Bluetooth headset

+ Improved stand-alone GPS performance

+ Increased security by hiding your 3G Mobile Hotspot password

while typing

+ Ability to open any PDF attachments sent in an email

+ Ability to use special characters in corporate email passwords

+ Enhanced backlight display for the bottom four buttons on

the device to now follow the device display timer setting

+ Widgets now refresh based on the defined refresh time interval

+ If already in a locked state, the device will now remain locked

when placed in the desk dock or car dock

The update will be pushed out to Fascinate owners automatically, but if you’d like to hurry it along go to Settings, About phone, System updates, Check New.
