OK, first of all I gave up on Samsung and got rid of my Epic and purchased an EVO. FINALLY my push email works with 2.2 with almost the precision of the Blackberry system. I NEVER had reliable push e mail with the Epic and with 2.2 a third party server is just not needed. The flash player is great also. Samsung should be ashamed of itself for screwing its customers including myself. Hopefully Gingerbread is just around the corner!
