    OK All - Looks like DietCoke may have been right.

    The question is simple - will/could SPRINT push back the 8/31 release date? I would say 99.999....% chance that that will NOT happen.

    Given that - and knowing that here are GPS issues that Samsung has alreadt admitted - might they extend the 30 days? Bottom line - one of the things *I* use the device for is GPS. If, at the end of 30 days - it's not working - it's going back.

    No one is saying that there won't be a GPS issue, all I have heard and said is that there is a possiblity that they fixed it. If not, then they have said they are going to fix it in Sept. If they don't, return it. And no, they will not extend the 30 days (no inside knowledge just a gut feeling).

    Yup, if the device is not working the way you think it should, then it should go back.

    Will Sprint push back the release date if the GPS problem is real on the Epic? Not likely.

    Will Sprint extend the 30 day return policy? Again not likely.

    I know that if I am not happy with a device and it is not fulfilling my needs, then I will return it. EVO is a great phone and has great GPS (I hear). That would be my next target, if and only if, the GPS problem is real, and Samsung denies it and doesn't give a date in which they plan to release a fix. Captivate/Vibrant have been out for a month, they have a confirmed time frame for a fix release. If the same goes for the Epic, then I would stay.

    *edit* By the way, even if after the 30 day period you are haveing problems, such as GPS, if you push Sprint hard enough they will let you trade your phone for something different. I have read of Moment users doing just that.

    Every review is saying the GPS issue is no longer present. You just need to turn on the aGPS yourself I guess.
