Here is the deal... My little brother (20yrs) wants a new phone. He currently has a dumbphone with T-Mo. I will probably add a line to my Sprint plan for him. He wants one with a Physical KB, so I'm thinking Epic or the EVO Shift. Since Sprint recently reduced the price on the EPIC, it is now more appealing. My concerns with it are the fact the Galaxy S phones still only runs Android 2.1 and all the GPS issues I hear about, again like the other Galaxy S phones. He is not a techy kind of guy, so rooting will not happen. What are the odds of the Epic getting 2.2 OTA, and are there problems with the GPS anymore on the Epic? Any input and suggestions are welcome and appreciated. Also, He is in the Navy and stationed in Virginia, Anyone familliar with Sprint coverage in Norfolk, Richmond, and VA Beach? Thanks!
