Planning on picking up the Samsung Fascinate? Might want to take a look at this first: BGR has Verizon's known issues list for the Fascinate in their hot little hands. None of the issues necessarily seem major, but there are quite a few little ones - which can certainly add up.

Many of the issues seem like minor oversights. For example:

  • Alert notifications can't be changed
  • Caller ID bug when you're on the line and get a second call
  • Soft key backlighting isn't tied to screen timeout (it should)
  • When deleting emails, there's no status bar/window - so it appears the phone is hanging
  • Downloaded apps are sorted by date downloaded rather than alphabetically
  • During activation, there's no reboot warning before the phone does so

Another area with a fair number of bugs seems to be email:

  • Email sync error - sometimes screen goes dark and throws an error
  • When Exchange security policy is in use, you can't change email password
  • Lock and Lock screen issues when using Exchange ActiveSync
  • Corporate email special characters issues
  • Corporate email inbox error

It's important to remember that phones on all carriers have similar lists, they just generally don't make it public.
