    So, I fainally qualifiy for a new phone with sprint and have now jumped ship to an iPhone. What a diference. I gotta admit it was fun trying to get the Epic to do what I wanted it to do and having the freedom to change a few things on it was great, but I don't miss the bad gps, terrible 4g reception, or the shitty battery life. So farewell to all and good luck with your epics, I had fun with mine. peace.

    My wife is looking into paying an ETF to go to an iPhone 4S. The Epic would be a great phone if not for all the bugs. I know I will never buy a Samsung again.

    Hope it works out for you.

    Good luck with the new phone!

    My wife and I both have Epics and both are considering the iPhone 4S as well. The update to Gingerbread improved some things, but introduced other problems too. And we both still occasionally have failures that lock up the phone requiring us to remove the battery, and (worst of all IMHO) occasionally connect a phone call and have no audio.

    But only one of our contracts is up, so only one of us can trade in for now. Thinking about waiting to see what the next iPhone release (5?) will look like first before we decide.

    Looking at rumors around the internet, it seems that the fall of 2012 could be the release date for the iPhone5.

    My contract came up this past October, and my wife's will come up in next Oct. So fall 2012 works pretty well for us!

    Good luck with your phone. Sprint would have to pay me to get me into an iPhone. Holding out for an LTE Android device. Can't wait to hear what Sprint got to say next week at CES (rumor LTE Nexus).

    We were also in the "Samsung never again" group. After playing with an Epic 4G Touch as well as a few other GSII's we weakened in our indignant stance. Amazon's $79 price was the final push. I'm happy to say that the E4GT has performed flawlessly and is impressive. Not at all like our E4G experience. Blazing fast, great screen, long battery life. It's as impressive compared to it's contemporaries as the Evo4G was in its prime. It's my wife's phone and I'm holding out for ICS/LTE (our next upgrade 7/12) , but it's a phone I could easily live with if a bargain came my way. I like the iphone just fine, but could never see myself joining the izombies!

    I still have my Epic however it reboots almost daily. It has been a pretty good phone. Troubles are just now showing up after a year of hard use. I got an iPhone 4 S on another line and in spite of many forum user experiences ; mine is good. The quality of the build is night and day over the Epic. My speeds are fine with the iPhone on 3 G on Sprint. I have only used in Central Florida including Daytona Beach and Orlando and data speed has been acceptable in this area so far.

    I've moved on from a GS1 Epic to a GS2 Epic Touch.

    The GS1 Epic was the best "cell" phone I ever had (until I got the GS2 Epic) :)
