    FYI ..If you need a fast charge turn the handset off for awhile and see the difference.

    Good to know, thanks for the advice (hoping to pick mine up today)!

    I did notice that leaving it on while charging is extraordinarily slow. From 10% to 50% took 2 hours (screen off, nothing running).

    I charged mine from 0 to 100 with it turned off and it took 2 hours and 56 min. I haven't timed it from 0 to 100 with it on so that will be next.

    went from 10% to 60% in about 30 mins on a vibrant with the phone off

    (does the epic use the same battery as the other Galaxy S phones?)

    from turn off you mean complete turn off the whole device?? Wouldn't it also mean not being able to receive phone calls/texts/emails for that long??
