Remember that bug in the DL09 maintenance update which broke emergency calling for some of you? Just a week separated from Samsung officially acknowledging the issue, Verizon is now sending text messages out to Fascinate owners addressing the issue.
Free VZW Msg(s) - Use of your emergency call button on your Fascinate phone with software SCH-i500.DL09 may not work while the phone is locked. A software fix will be pushed to your device soon. Until available, disable pattern lock to ensure emergency calls can be placed. To check your software version press Applications>Settings>About phone and view Build number. Only version SCHi-500.DL09 is impacted by this issue. Versions SCH-i500.DI01 and SCH-i500.DH12 are functioning properly. To disable pattern lock press Applications>Settings>Location & Security and remove check from Require Pattern.
So it appears Verizon has another maintenance update ready to go to fix the issue. We applaud Verizon and Samsung for addressing it so quickly, so keep your eyes open. Or, you could always just check out that shiny new Froyo leak. [Android Central Forums]
