WARNING: Emergency Call Button Broken On Samsung Fascinate DL09 Update

Androidcentral is reporting today via their forums that if you took the recent DL09 official Samsung Fascinate update pushed by Verizon this week there is a serious flaw in the emergency call button on the lock pattern.

The team was able to reproduce the exact same bug in house. Typically when you have an unlock pattern set and hit the emergency dial button the button dials 911 for you, not in the new update. The button does NOTHING and the dialer isn’t visible until the correct unlock pattern is entered.

Androidcentral has reached out to both Samsung and Verizon as this is a pretty serious safety concern.
