    So I exchange my Epic today for a new one... The screen had a gap that would click against the keyboard when I press on it.

    But the question is will the Apps I have on my account sync back to my phone once I link it back to my Google account or do i have to do it manually?

    Unless you have them backed up with some form of app, only the ones you purchased will be saved.

    No my new one doesnt have that gap... mine was actually clicking against the keyboard if i tap it.

    When I put a case on it... it did make it tight, but then the gap interfere to apoint where i can hear a squeak coming from the case rubbing up against each other cause of the gap.

    Nothing transfer over. What I did was go to app brain and open every single app in a new tab. Then download app brain app and synced it. Then manual install every app again. lol

    Mine had the gap and does the clicking against the keyboard also. I think I am just going to return the phone, I absolutly love it, but I did not really want a keyboard to begin with, and if its this loose now I can only imagine how bad it will get.



    This is most likely just something that is very common, if sprint had a galaxy s without a keyboard I would get that, but I think for now I will just wait for a phone to come out that is basically just like the galaxy s, minus the keyboard.

    I just dont like moving parts on my phone, it makes it feel so sloppy. Its such a shame also, because there are so many things I like about this phone.

    I'm on my third Epic... The first one had a minor gap (gap as thick as a dime), the second one had a major gap (thick as a quarter) and my third is a sweetie. It's the way it SHOULD be... Just enough gap to slide, but not enough to slop.

    The first phone also had issues with the menu keys at the bottom. Not evenly lit, marginally responsive. It also had a camera issue as well. Second phone all but the gap was good. Third phone, everything is finally as it SHOULD have been. My third phone even has better buttons for on/off, volume and camera. Much better tactile response and action that the first two phones didn't have.
