To the point- my phone continues to take screen shots all by itself. It tends to happen after stock SMS application, and freezes up til screen timeout. This is my third and final replacement phone. If I want I can get another phone replacement, but what is comparable to our galaxy s?
The HTC Merge would be the next closest US Cellular phone to the Mesmerize. However, I would see if you could work out a deal and get the new Motorola Electrify 4G. Do a Google search on it and check the US Cellular Smartphone/Android phone webpage. it looks like an incredible phone.
I've had the Gingerbread update done as well. I also am still having screen shots taken from time to time. It happens only when I hit the power button to turn off the screen. I don't touch any other buttons at the same time, but it still happens every now and then.
My theory is that there must be some "charge" or surface button data in the cache at the same time I hit the power button so it thinks I want a screen shot.
I don't use the volume up/down button. Can't say that I have used it at all since I got the phone.
I'll usually give it a few minutes, then go to the gallery and delete them. It's kind of annoying, but if that's the only glitch I've got then I can live with it.
Most all of the other issues have gone by the wayside with the GB update.
That's what I thought. I'm going to try and wait until the Holidays when USCC does their 'free' smart phone contract renewal. Knowing me, though, I'll give in to temptation and buy it when I get the cash.
The Electrify looks pretty good to me, but I saw the "Rolls Royce" of phones today at Best Buy. The Motorola "Bionic." This phone might cause me to switch carriers and move over to Verizon. Time will tell.
Device(s): Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung Galaxy S Mesmerize, Galaxy 10.1 WiFi

Yes, it is 4G capable. It is a "rebranded" Motorola Photon (Sprint).
You might want to google USCC's 4G rollout and see if you're in one of the early adoption markets.
I'm not, so as much as I am intrigued by the phone, 4G is like dating a super model to me..sounds great, but probably not going to happen any time soon. (Especially since my wife would probably have a few questions...)
