    okay so when my epic is plugged in and i jump in the air while im holding it it shockes me with static i thought it was random. so i jumped again.. still got shocked..

    anyone else have this happen? i also tried unplugging it and it still did it about to try it with my shoes off and with a different charger.

    (i also work at a sprint store so imagine a sprint worker jumping with no shoes haaha)

    Good thing you cant fly, if a jump causes a small shock leaving the ground for a while might cause electrocution.

    Mine shocks me, too. But, then again, so does everything else metal after I've walking in my running shoes for a bit.

    They build up static easily.
