Samsung Vibrant *BUGS*Support

    I am facing a very weird bug on the Vibrant.
    Every time I visit http://www.prasinanea.gr from the build in browser once the webpage loads %100 the browser shuts down immediately. Like force to close.

    I tried a couple of debugging but I had no luck loading the page. The same website loads perfectly on a Nexus One and on an HTC Incredible.

    Can someone with Vibrant try to load this page and report here if the same problem appears?


    edit:
    Confirmed websites that crash the browser:

    www.gizmodo.com
    www.cbssports.com (parts of the website)
    www.prasinanea.gr
    www.sport-fm.gr

    Thanks for the confirmation...

    Maybe is some JavaScript running behind the page that cause this to happen.

    I am having the same problem with cbssports.com, the full site, not the mobile version. After it loads up 100% it will just quit and jump to my home screen. I tried dolphin browser and it does the same thing, wierd. This never happened on my N1 so i have no idea the problem.

    Man this is really frustrating. Anyone else having this problem or know of a fix? I'm not sure what other websites this is happening with (cbssports is really the only site i use because of fantasy baseball).

    DVNO is probably some Java script code behind the scene causing the browser to crash.
    It it is confirmed to two websites then I am sure will be plenty of other that will lead in the same results.

    We have to do some noise contacting both T-Mobile and Samsung and hope for a quick fix.

    I'm pretty sure Samsung has a spy on these forums too. Phandroid is a popular site with a huge forum community. Well, that's if they are serious as they said they were about Android and smartphones. Check T-Mobile forums and report the problems there too.

    This turn out to be a MAJOR BUG.

    I found another very popular website that I visit in daily bases that makes the browser to crash. www.sport-fm.gr

    @DVNO I tried loading cbssports.com but I am going to the mobile webpage which loads correctly and I see no link for the desktop version.

    It is actually a direct link to the live scoring section of my fantasy league. Every other part of the site works fine it only happens when i click on the live scoring link. I also tried the two site you have listed and they both crash the same way.

    Thanks for your verification. This major bug is now official. I called Samsung Mobile USA and reported it. Who knows how many other websites will lead the browser to crash.

    I love the device but Samsung is not known for their quick responses in bug fixes so if I do not get an official respond or fix on this really soon, I am afraid I will have to return the device for a refund.

    This is pretty serious to me.

    Same here. I really only use the browser for fantasy baseball, everything else i can get through apps. Please keep me informed on what you hear from them, if anything. I'm gonna hold off on selling my N1 until then.

    OK I have done some troubleshouting and its definitaly Java related issue.

    Deactivating Java from the browser settings and I got prasinanea.gr to load correctly. But still no luck with sport-fm.gr

    OK guys, its been almost three days with the device I can safety report the bugs I found so far.

    Such a thread is much needed and if a moderator can stick it would be great.

    All of you please feel free to post your comments and/or your additions.

    Here we go:


    1. The most important bug is the Java script handling in browser. This bug forces the browser to crash when visited popular webpages. See this thread here.
    2. When Google Contact contains birthday entry but this entry only includes DAY and MONTH without the YEAR then this contact is not accessible from the phone.
    3. In Taskbar the Bluetooth button opens the Bluetooth settings instead on Power ON/Off the Bluetooth as it should.
    4. The battery indicator is wrong. I have 69% of battery and by looking the indicator looks like I am still on 90%!
    5. If you set your SMS settings to NOT delete any SMS you will keep getting an annoying popup telling you to choose if you want to set automatic delete for SMS. Even if you choose NO you will get this notification every time you open messaging.
    6. If I get a new email in my PC and read it. The phone checks for new messages after couple of minutes. It will download the message you previously read but it will notify you that you have a new email. You click on the new email and only to find out that it only contains the email you previously read. This applies to IMAP server. I am not using GMAIL and I am not sure if this bug is present there.
    7. T-Mobiles Visual Voicemail is build-in the firmware. Even thought a newer version of this app is available in the market we cannot install it.
    8. Clicking to Facebook notifications from both the Taskbar or from within the Contacts will open Facebook Mobile in browser and not the Facebook App.
    9. The *#*#checkin#*#* does not work for me. The code is accepted but I am never getting a Checkin success message or any other error message.
    10. The native Gallery app cannot display Facebook Albums. If I am not mistaken this function was available in the preproduction units (This is not a bug but a missing function)
    11. SMS Delivery Reports create a new notification every time a message is delivered. (This is not a bug but it is really annoying, it feels its like 1999 all over again loool)

    I don't really have bugs but more of missing features.

    No way to delete multiple contacts from a synced account.

    No way to select a group to sync contacts from when syncing from Gmail.

    The biggest issues I have are the hard buttons at the bottom being very laggy. It sometimes takes up to 5 secondS for the home button to register being touched. The other really big issue is the GPS only locking on to a maximum of 4 satellites at a time. Which equals really long lock times and overall poor gps performance. This is apparently a problem with the international Galaxy S too.

    Yes, the GPS is a bit laggy now that you mention it. This isn't a bug but the lights on the capacitive keys goes out way too fast. I can't see them in the dark and end up pushing the wrong one most of the time.

    The Phone stalls A LOT. But there is a fix, and now all of my apps open instantly and the capacitive buttons work right when you touch them. Ive also fixed the GPS, all of this stuff is on XDA guys.

    You may want to double check on the visual voicemail agian. I just looked and the version on the phone is 1.1.14 and the version on the market is 1.0.12

    dcam1075 Well-Known Member

    Care to enlighten us? :) I have tried the GPS fix that is floating around, but I have found that only helps with the speed at which you get a GPS lock. The more important underlying issue is the phone will only lock onto 3 maybe 4 maximum number of satellites which means much lower signal quality. It is bearable for Navigation as long as you are not in a high rise district or heavy tree cover. But for anything else it makes the GPS about worthless.

    I am also experiencing a lot of lagginess, button not responding, apps taking a long to load, etc. I would love to try any suggestions out there that address that!
    Thanks!

    I'm sure there will be some sort of small update prior to Froyo that will address some issues. It's pretty common for any device like this. Even the Droid X is having it's issues, and we all know of the iPhone4 issues.

    Be patient... most of this is just software stuff.

    I am having the same issue when trying to go to gizmodo.com. Could those sites be blocked?

    I can confirm gizmodo.com is causing the same issue. :mad:

    New bug.

    When Google Contact contains birthday entry but this entry only includes DAY and MONTH without the YEAR then this contact is not accessible from the phone.

    You guys might want to think about emailing or posting these bugs to the samsung site... might speed up the fixes if they know all the issues and how wide spread they are...
