    The samsung epic 4g has been a great device. I used to have an HTC EVO before i switched to the epic and even with 2.1 i will still keep it over the EVO. The problem? THE CARRIER! The carrier has the Froyo update finalized and ready for release. The rumored date of Dec. 26th has almost been crushed. I updated my phone and my mom's to the unnoficial Froyo 4S base-band version. I was trying to Odin flash it back to 2.1 and i hosed my phone and had to get a new one. My mom's phone i did not try to get flashed back to 2.1 so she took it into sprint to look at it. They said they had the phone back to normal but the newer version of touchwhiz was on the device. I looked at the base-band version. Froyo 5s. She has the official froyo on her phone from sprint. This was in November! It's almost January and they still don't have it out yet! This is exactly why if i do not get froyo tomorrow i am going to T-mobile and the G2. This is ridiculous! Samsung isn't the problem right now it's Sprint! I am never purchasing another samsung device unless it's a nexus device EVER! They both were the problem because samsung took all the months to finally get it done and to sprint and now sprint is doing a samsung. I am very dissapointed in sprint.

    I doubt your mom's phone has the official version of 2.2 from sprint from November. What is the build number? The last 4 characters of the baseband version? If this was truely a sprint only issue in getting 2.2 on the galaxy phone then why do none of the other carriers have it either?

    I wouldn't listen to anyone at the store unless the employee is really up on his/her android stuff. When I was with Verizon not too long ago I brought my Eris in to get fixed and ultimately replaced. The guy who gave me my new Eris told me it had 2.3 on it...I told him that's not possible because at that time it wasn't even available as beta. I looked at the firmware and it was 2.1 . Unfortunately just cause they work there doesn't always mean they know what there talking about :/
