    I hope this is true and it will fix the bugs with the epic. Sprints service is horrible and my epic is very slow. If I don't get 4g soon I am jumping ship and going with verizon. I can't steam any videos to this thing without getting a load bar every 5 seconds.

    Well, since my epic hasn't even updated to 2.2 yet, and the only thing I get from the Sprint store is either, "Wait", or, "try downloading and see if you can install it yourself", I am somewhat less than hopeful.

    And……….. the reason to believe it is true would be……….???….. surely not based on past performance and promises. The only reason I could even believe that we WOULD get it anytime close to soon is that Sprint figures they can’t use the old “do a hard reset”… “do a soft reset”….. “take the battery out…put the battery in….take the battery out…..” crap much longer. They have pretty much washed their hands with those of us who STILL do not have a fully/properly functioning Froyo 2.2 update (saying that made me think….. does ANY Epic 4G owner really have a fully/properly fuctioning system after the update….hmmmm). I got my phone in March; a couple days later here comes the update – yeah!…. wrong!…it has been a total nightmare and a bazillion calls to Sprint since then. After, what, maybe a week here comes the fix – yeah! – wrong again. What!! they wanted ME to pay for the fix at the “Service” Center, because I was not tech savy enough to do it myself … only because I could not get a straight nor detailed answer as to what had to be done. And still I didn’t give up, I kept believing and thinking Sprint would come thru. I stood my ground and finally Sprint stepped up and issued a credit for the fix. Ok, it’s was a start. And then I finally got to talk to someone who I thought was going to put me out of my misery. They were going to ship me a new phone… yeah! Wrong again. Upon going to hand over my Epic I saw my “new” Epic come out of the bag……………yes, you guessed it … a refurbished piece of crap that someone else got rid of. I wasn’t going to trade one set of problems that I paid $300 for, to get a $29.95 set of problems.

    Now, don’t think that I don’t like my Epic, I do, I really really do…. or I really really want to. But it has become more than evident that no one at Sprint even has a clue as to what the fix is. Seriously, Sprint has not, in MY opinion, shown any real accountability for the total mess they are either directly or indirectly responsible for, which many of us are left to deal with.

    So, here I sit; wasting hours upon days searching through forums, blogs and any other sites for a possible solution, only to try them and fail. The only answer I found is to root, and it is obvious that is the only and undoubtedly the best answer. But no matter how detailed and easy each site says their instructions are, I have no clue what they are saying much less what has to be done. I won’t kid myself, I am tech retarded and to try would only leave me with more of a mess, and the one responsible for the mess in the end. Do ya think maybe that is what Sprint would like to happen.

    Well at least I got it off my chest. So now I can go about my business (which is suffering due to this) and take the battery out….. put the battery back in…… hardset…..soft set…. until I’ve had enough or Sprint surprises me and finally comes through. Nah….I think I would have to bet against it…….. better answer – find someone to pay to root the phone. I’ll begin that search. (Yeah, it did get rather long….:) but it felt good!
