    This thread is solely for the purpose of figuring out who has that "golden Epic 4g". This means that all those GPS issues and capacitive button issues? Yeah, that's right, you don't have these problems.

    NOTE: This is not an issue thread! There have been other threads created for that topic and I really do not want to have duplicate threads.

    I indeed have a golden Epic, but it took 3 times to get it

    Golden here on the first try. No issues at all (minus the 2.2 issue).

    So far, so good. Looks like the problems seem to be defective products and not full on issues like what good ol' Stevie Job's phone had (although I heard this issue was remote too, but I'm not sure)

    I have to. Sprint service is no good, Verizon is too expensive, AT&T sucks/I hate it out of principle. G2 it is...

    Well then, I bet that phone will work out perfectly for you. Are you going to post your impressions?

    My Epic functions as SamSprint intends.
    Everything I have an issue with "is a feature, not a bug."

    As much as this is a problem it might be a Sprint issue more than a Epic issue.

    I believe I have a golden Epic ... If I dont use Gmaps lol... Sprint nav perfect...

    Well hopefully I don't make anyone who missed out on a golden ticket too mad, but I have 2 epics (wife and myself) and they both work great. GPS works great (even when you don't want it lol), and the samsung buttons work great on both phones.

    We've had them since the 31st, and have been very happy.

    btw, what are the main GPS issues?

    Minie is lookin good. i had to get 1 replacement due to spontaneous crashing/freezing, but the 2nd one seems pretty sound. My GPS is great - once I turn it on, it catches w/in 2 minutes. I have tried Google Navigation as well as Sprint Telenav.

    Well done sir! You win the thread!!!

    My Epic is pretty golden (first one) so far but I DO have the bugs that I'm hoping get fixed with OTA updates... **knocks on wood**
