    Samsung Epic:9/30 - Samsung Epic Maintenance Release

    Fixes:
    WiFi standby battery drain
    Amazon MP3 cannot download in 4G
    Large emails lag in upload speeds
    Increased 3G upload speeds



    Update your software
    1. The software will be automatically downloaded to your phone since this is a recommended update.
    2. A System update screen will prompt the user to 'Install now' or 'Install later'.
    If 'Install later' is selected, a reminder will be sent once or twice a day to install the update.
    If 'Install now' is selected, the phone will power down and then reboot.



    Important Notes:
    - This update will take approximately 7-8 minutes to download and 7-8 minutes to install.
    - The new software version is: S700.0.5S.DI18
    - This update is available OTA (over the air) and will be pushed to your device. It is being pushed in stages, beginning on 9/30 12:00AM EST, and will be rolled out to users over several days.
    - Your device must be on software version DI07 to perform the update to DI18. If you are still on DG17 or DG27, a Sprint Service and Repair Center should be able to update your device to DI07. The update from DI07 to DI18 is not yet available to the Service and Repair Centers. As soon as it is, this post will be updated.
    I haven't received it on my phone yet.

    My only concern is if this corrects the sleep issue with the phone.

    can someone tell me what the sleep issue is?!?! is this only referring to wifi usage? or are you talking about when your phone screen turns off and goes into standby?

    Yeah hopefully this addresses sleep... Great that Sprint has been on the ball with this phone so far. I still feel like they treat it secondary to the Evo, but this instills some confidence =].

    Sleep issue: the phone should enter a standby "sleep" mode when the screen is off and there's no apps running like pandora.

    Depending on how often you use the phone your awake time should be arond 10-20ish%.

    The phone starts out fine then something triggers the phone to remain awake which kills the battery.

    You can check this through spare parts by seeing the battery history. It will say what the phone is running at (awake time).

    It was thought the drm process or mediahub causes this, but it's not the case. It's something else.

    Yep I used spare parts and it shows time without sleep as 13 hours. Everything closed and airplane mode was on for about 8 hours of that (it was overnight). Some serious issues going on.

    I dl'd spare parts this morning, I don't know what I'm looking at though.
    It says:

    Running 34.1%
    Screen on 19.%
    Phone on 5.0%

    Nothing about sleep or awake here. I don't use wifi only 3g/4g.

    I found it - time without sleeping it say 2hrs and 12min...
    my phone has been unplugged for 6 hours and 27minutes though, so I guess it has been "sleeping" the other 4 hours...must be a good thing?

    yeah, have you been using your phone for over 2 hours since unplugged? Like music?

    I'd be curious to your awake time later in the day.

    Exactly... same problem. Your phone hasn't slept once. Something is causing it to be awake all the time and it's not DRM or Mediahub. If you reset the phone, it's a temporary fix, but then it will once again be prevented from sleeping.

    Go to Battery History and tap on the bar that says "running".

    Mine reports time spent without sleeping as 6d 17h......hmmmmmm. We need to get a fix for this...not a temporary patch...but a true fix from either Samsung or Sprint.

    late,

    Mine is at 99.1% time without sleeping. I hope this update fixes this too. My phone was running great before the last update, but now I'm lucky to go 8 hours with very little use.

    what about news widgets on your home screens? They keep running right? WOuldn't that explain it?

    Also what about the Beautiful Widget? It's got realtime weather updates.. wouldn't that also force the phone not to sleep?

    Do we EVEN know what constitutes as sleep mode? Should expect phones to be sleep most of the time when we turn the screen off?

    Go to dialer and enter *#4636*1111#. Then select Battery History. From there you can find all this info....specifically Under "Other Usage" the top bar reads "Running". Tap this and it gives you time without sleeping. You can select whether to see this info since last boot, unplugged, or all time.

    After a lot of tweaking and locking down certain apps I'm at 23% time without sleeping today. Pretty good considering my Airave went down for about an hour this afternoon. Prior to adjusting settings it was always above 60% and sometimes in the 90's.

    Hmm... I don't think this is a defect with the Epic... I've gone through 3 phones... and every one has had its problems, but they have ALL been able to sleep perfectly fine.

    For those that have a problem with this particular issue: you must have some rogue process or application that's doing it. Download the System Panel application and it will help you locate the problem.

    I'm using a free app called Spare Parts. Once you have that, Click on it, then select battery history. Where you see "Running" click on it, and there it is.

    Would you be so kind to say exactly what you did since it seems like your phone is sleeping correctly?
