It all could get settled fine by June (no earlier- my guess). Hoping the person that responded for Samsung was some clueless marketing person. The problem is most sites reporting this (there are quite a few) are not pointing out an sd card will not fix the issue and some even are supporting it as a solution (though they say, "not the best").
Ignorance is a contagious thing.
Let us hope that a similarly clueless marketing person is not the Verizon (other carriers too) person that decides on what models to stock. Yikes.
