You know what sucks? Having your house burn down. You know what sucks even more? Not being able to call the fire department because your phone’s baseband silently crashes whenever you disable WiFi, as is the case with the Sprint Samsung Moment.

Or, I should say, as was the case.

A bit over a month after the aforementioned bug made headlines, Sprint has just pushed out a maintenance update that they say should fix “911 call restrictions after modem crash related to airplane mode and data lockup”.

At least one user in the Sprint forum is claiming that the issue still exists post-fix. If you’ve got a moment and a Moment, be sure to give that ol’ WiFi switch a quick switch off, wait a few minutes, and then try placing a call. Let us know how it works, won’t you?
