    It's amazing what just a little reading can do ;p
    But seriously, good luck with the Epic. It's a great phone, and CM9 puts the user experience IMHO on par with the iPhone as far as smoothness. My wife just got the iPhone, and is already complaining about what she can't do with it compared to the BB 8330m that it replaced...

    Just be aware that if you flash to CM9 there will be things that don't work properly, e.g. bluetooth, wifi sleep, camera touchscreen focus, MMS slideshow, camcorder flash (there might be another one or two in there, not sure).

    I assume all the "bugs" you have listed are only random because my CM9 works just perfect and I haven't encountered any of the bugs listed.

    I guess it has to do with the way and the state you're phone is before the update?

    No, the bugs he listed are universal. Everyone has them, even you. You just may not use your phone in a way that you have experienced them yet.
