    We can probably get it if we bitch and moan to Ecare about it. Talk about all the "issues" with the phone, lack of definitive Froyo release date, spotty 4g coverage that we're paying for. It shouldn't be that hard really. When they dropped the price on the Palm Pre within 60 days, I complained and they credited my account $50.

    Why do you feel entitled to this?

    You bought the phone before the promotion.

    Nope, it's their choice if they want to give it to me. They can give me 2.2 if they want to also. I'm just wondering how to ask is all. Now if I was someone with certain leanings, it'd be a matter of entitlement.

    Fixed! Don't let phone discussions go to other forums either I guess.

    thanks OP for posting. I'm also an early purchaser and just curious to see if we can get in on this deal. $50 is a lot considering how much the media costs in media hub. It would be a nice bonus for being guinea pigs :D If not - it's all good. I'll survive - just nice to know if there's a way for us to get it too

    Well, on Sprint website, i don't see this "bonus" anywhere! The customer service folks also did not know what i was talking about. This special should already be going on, right?

    Just thought I would throw this out there. I called Sprint and asked if I could receive the $50.00 Samsung credit. The CSR took my info. and said that I should be receiving a text with my code(to be used on Media Hub). Good luck.

    info@mediahubcodes.com to receive their unique pin code.

    * Once received the customer must access Media Hub service on the phone
    to activate the promotional credit.
    * PIN codes are sent within 5-7 days.

    I'm thinking they should be giving away these credits to everybody with a media hub capable device, just to get people using it!

    I'm guessing that usage of the system is pretty low (how many of us have actually spent money on there?). If they give away some credits, it might get people to try it and maybe continue using it.

    Just got a reply that says I should be getting my $50 code soon. Also, after getting on the media hub today, it said there was an update which took me to the Market for it. Installed update. I don't see the DRM in running services anymore so I hope that it fixed that deal.

    I also did this and got an email saying my code will be sent soon for $50 of media hub content. I also updated my media hub, but still see the DRA Protected Content running service when I turn my phone off and back on.

    Sent from my Samsung Epic 4G

    I don't see it. Is it labeled as something different? I see the media hub and download manager for the hub but no DRM. Maybe I got lucky?

    So I sent an email to the link posted by holes45, simply stated: Please send me a pin for my media hub credit. I added my name and phone number to the message. This is the response I got:

    Thank you for your email. You will receive a unique code to access your gift on the Media Hub application by this week Friday via email.

    If you have not already done so please forward your new Epic 4G phone number. We will need your phone number in order to assign your code for the offer.

    Please look for your code in the next few days.

    I purchased my phone 6 weeks ago but it looks like they are going to give me the credit.

    You are saying Sprint applied a $50 credit to you general Sprint account and you can see it listed on your account right now (it would be posted within one or two hours)? That would be very strange since this is a samsung promotion and the site to email for your pin is a sumsung contracted marketing firm

    do you see a $50 credit applied to your sprint account and what does the associated note say? As it is not uncommon for ecare to promise credits and have then nixed.

    I have got my fingers crossed, why not, but to be clear the terms quite specifically say:

    I didn't get credit to my Sprint account. They said I will receive a text message today with a code for Media Hub.
