    Due to my intense dissatisfaction with my Moment, and the awesome specs of the Epic, I was all prepared to buy one launch day. But then the day before launch that little voice in my head said, "Let someone else be a guinea pig and discover the early adapter bugs," and so I listened to that voice. Well reading some of the thread titles on this forum, I'm quite happy I did. This phone STILL has issues with GPS, which is one of the major issues I have with my Moment. WTF Samsung, what is wrong with your ability to get a proper working GPS?!

    Unbelievable. Well I hope the early adapter complaints to Samsung/Sprint will get this issue resolved. Per an earlier reply I posted in the Moment forum, I'm so done with my Moment and want it replaced, like now, but the Epic is the only phone sold by Sprint I would even consider. So, I'm going to wait until December, and if this issue still isn't fixed I'm jumping ship to another carrier (Verizon) and saying goodbye to Sprint and their Samsung phones. My friends owns a Droid 2 and she has NONE of the issues I have with my Moment, and her GPS works flawlessly, unlike apparently with the Epic.

    Get it fixed by December or you're losing a customer Sprint!

    glad i did. yeah, GPS is unpredictable but it worked for me today without the cold start fix. there really isn't anything else that's a major problem (the 3g upload fix is in the air). if your life depends on GPS working, then wait, but if not, then why wait and put up with the "intense dissatisfaction" with your current phone?

    again, to each his own, but don't taint the epic so when you haven't even tried it out first hand? i myself have not had any problems since i got it on launch day other than the software issues reported along with minor annoyances that all devices of this caliber have. even with all that, i'm glad to have it.

    ... well think your problem isn't the phone, is Sprint. If you looking for the Epic (or any phone) to retain you as a customer, you choosing your service wrong.

    as one of our mods say:
    "Every phone has a bunch of manufacturing issues. Evo had separating glass, cracked charger ports and cracked power buttons, screen "wash outs"... Hero had... Moment had... E71 had....

    Find the phone that world best for you (regardless of what it may be). Just remember that NO phone is going to be exactly perfect."

    Think your next move before you choose.

    Good Luck.

    yeah but i rather take physical cosmetics defects over functionality. i much rather have my phone work how it supposed to work. samsung is just terrible. 2/3 of sprints new android phones just suck. i currently have a moment and also planned on getting the epic hoping the samsung will finally make a decent android phone. i don't think i will be getting it in nov. htc evo is looking really good now. lol

    So you're going to keep a phone that you have "intense dissatisfaction with" until December? Three months after the Epic is out and 5 or 6 since the EVO? Ok, whatever. I've had my EPIC since launch day and love 98% of it! Plus, in my case, Sprint is significantly cheaper than any other service I could have.

    Keep waiting for "perfection" my man...I'm sure you'll find it some day.
