Hi guys, I'm praying you guys can help me out here! I'm brand new to Android (just switched from 5 years of blackberry) and can't tell you how much I hate this phone so far! I'm literally 24 hours away from taking it back because I've invested hours trying to get what I think the most basic tasks accomplished via apps that don't work, glitch, etc... As a last ditch effort to stay on my Samsung Epic 4G - I'm hoping the experts here can guide me in the right direction and help solve my issues. So I've compiled a brief list of the most annoying issues I can't seem to solve - please help guys!!! 1. The Calendar! I was so excited to use the "cloud" solution but so disappointed what an elementary and glitchy calendar this phone has! By default - when you enter a new event - it saves it to "My Calendar" which does not sync to your Gmail accounts!!! I goggled this and it's a big issue. Sounds like there really isn't a fix. I've tried everything and can't get it to sync. I can manually select my Gmail calendar when adding the event but that's ridiculous if you use the calendar as much as I do. Also by default it doesn't have a notification and you can't change this - again you can manually remember for each and every event to select the reminder but come on??? Who puts in a reminder/calendar even in their phone and doesn't want to ALWAYS be notified of it??? I tried downloading Gemini and it's glitchy. Long story the notification window comes up blank because it glitches with the Google calendar - I couldn't find a fix on that so gave up. Also the snooze sucks - you can't simply choose to snooze something 5 min., 15 min. or an hour??? Who designed this??? Anyone have a legit calendar solution??? 2. The messenger makes a notification of a text message mid-call. I use my phone primarily for business and can't have chimes going off in my ear when my Wife texts me about dinner. Again - no setting for this??? I goggled it and people install Handcent. It allows you to change the setting. The downside - now your factory messenger link remains on your home page. You can't swap that with Handcent. That's a pretty ghetto solution......I then installed ADW Launcher to customize a bit.....again - a ton of work to swap out a shortcut all caused by notifications of text messages! I consider this partially solved but not too happy with it - anyone have a better solution? 3. I'm in the car on my Bluetooth a lot and can't stand the drag to answer. I installed "Easy Answer Buttons" but that program is glitchy. It doesn't work with blue tooth - I.e. - if I answer the call via Bluetooth on my car steering wheel - the program isn't smart enough to know the calls been answered so the screen remains on answer or ignore. It's also very delayed - I see call coming and it takes a couple seconds for the buttons to appear - again - a pretty ghetto fix. Anyone have a better solution? 4. Gmail is frustrating. I have several accounts and hate I can't have separate icons for each of them. I also hate the threaded conversations. I do like the speed and push ability but want a more normal outlook/blackberry solution. Anyone have a legit solution? 5. The screen doesn't time out when you charge the phone - you have to press the sleep button every time - annoying!!! Anyone have a solution? 6. I also noticed the screen stays on when I'm in the car on a call via Bluetooth - I installed "shake to wake" because I couldn't stand the fact that the screen shuts off and I can't hang up a call at the end of a conversation. I set the program to the hardest shake possible and I believe it's supposed to work with the cheek sensor so not sure if the vibration of the car (although it's constantly on when I'm cruising mildly on the freeway) could be causing it. Solution??? Other than that - I've found "patch" fixes to make the phone tolerable - but in my opinion - this phone is a great toy but true business day to day functionality sucks so far! Sorry if I'm so negative guys I've just spent so much time with such poor results I'm turning to you guys. On a side note I do love the web, games, playful apps, etc... But it's gotta function like a core phone/calendar to stay with me! Thanks for the help guys!
