As soon as I got my next upgrade (actually got it pushed back a few weeks) I dumped that crappy Epic and got the Photon.
Yes, I had issues with the Photon at first. And, once I got the right Photon and Motorola released updates that fixed anything else, I was in heaven. I love my Photon.
My experience with Samsung was that the Epic was released as broken and had inferior hardware in every way possible. Whenever Samsung finally got around to releasing updates to "fix" problems with the Epic, the updates not only didn't fix anything they were promised to fix, they usually broke more features. Eventually my Epic became a brick after updating a "fix." I got a replacement Epic. After only using that Epic for only a few months, the keys on the slider spontaneously started popping off.
I still get convulsions every time I even think about that Epic or being forced to buy another Samsung product ever.
I know that others have better experiences than me. I'll stand by my experience. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Why would you get a phone when the radio sucks.. If radios don't wk whats the point
