New to this forum. I like my Epic 4G but am having trouble getting some functions that were built in to MotoQ (I know old stuff:-)).
1. MotoQ used to have an obnoxious calendar notification that always made sure I paid attention and would only go away when I dismissed. This was fantastic. I cant seem to get that set up with Epic. I saw some discussion in the forums (fora?) about missing the "More" on the settings list and I don't have that "more" on my settings list either.
2. Using voice dialer with my bluetooth headset (Motoroal H721). When I just press the action button on my headset once nothing happens but when I hold it down it dials the last number. I dont get the voice asking whom I want to call.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
Thanks for your help

Had my Epic for about a week now and I love it. I switched over from the Palm Pre for a while until HP gets around to releasing some decent hardware for webOS. Getting my feet wet with Android, very impressed so far. Haven't tried anything too daunting yet, installed a new launcher and disabled TouchWiz.. got some nice widgets from the market and set up some convenient homescreens
Anyone have any advice for an Android newb? I don't know if I'm going to try rooting or not, kinda nervous about it.

For #1, when you create an event in your Google calendar you can have an e-mail sent to you a specified amount of time before that event. Works pretty well for me.
Take a look at this: Should I root my phone?
When you're in Titanium Backup, press the menu button on your phone and tap "Batch" - there will be an option to backup all apps and data at once.

I feel that it may not be as intuitive as webOS, but it has all the same functions. Just a different learning curve to find out how to access and use them.Everything is Amazing & Nobody is Happy, "People with their mobile phones, "uh... oh... it won't..."... GIVE IT A SECOND...

Loving my Samsung Epic 4G???
I purchased the EPIC last Friday after being a blackberry and HTC person for years. I really like most of the features I know about; hoever, there is a huge learning curve with this phone. I have never really had a problem understanding how to operate a phone. THAT WAS BEFORE I PURCHASED THIS ONE!!!
With this phone, I am having major problems adding my corpoate email to my phone. It took me less than 2 minutes to add it with my Blackberry. I keep getting the message: Setup could not finish..unable to connect to the network..Will Outlook not work with this phone or amI doing something wrong?? Has anyone else had this problem??

Hello all. I switched over from the palm pre and precentral about a week and a half ago. The transition was tough; and I did privately bash the Epic for the first few days. Now I'm all rooted up, and I understand the UI. Thank you forum! The Epic is truly Epic.

My name is bhall people call me 'B'. I'm new to the forums but not new to android. I first had the Evo for a while, then heard all the great things about the Epic. (And when froyo hits, it will be that much sweeter..lol) found a guy willing to trade his Epic for my Evo so I drove 2 hours and made the trade. Still not thinking twice about the decision.. but I'm just here to try to learn a bit more about the Epic, and keep track of what's going on in the Android world. I know a bit about android so if you need anything let me know.
Thanks for letting me be here... ~B

Hi, I'm Stephen. Just got the Sprint Epic 4G to replace an aging WinMo device, and so far loving it. Looking forward to becoming more of a poweruser with this OS as I was with the WinMo OS. Still just learning my way around slowly as I 1) don't want to brick it and 2) need it to stay stable...
Time to go find the Newbie How-To threads.

I am coming from a Sprint Palm Pre (-), and 4 other palm models before that. I have loved them from day one! I was sooo excited to see that the Palm Pre 2 was getting released. I could not wait until it was getting released! Then to find out that Sprint customers were getting the shaft twice..First with the Pre (+) and now with the Pre 2.
Now I said what the heck and I bought the Samsung Epic 4G.
WHAT THE HECK WAS I WAITING FOR?????
It is absolutely amazing. Love every minute of it. I cannot put it down. I wake up in the middle of the night, I see the LED light blinking and cant wait to pick up the phone again. My wife still has her Pre (-) and was playing Angry Birds for 6 hours yesterday. The most aggravating 6 hours ever. By the way she has it on her pre, but she said mine is much better...i cant agree more. she had a question about the Pre that i owned from day one, and i picked it up to show her and I could not believe how awkward it was and how hard it is to get used to it again, even though I only owned the Epic for 4 days!

So Sprint isn't getting the Pre 2 huh? I hadn't heard.
Welcome to the Epic forum - I'm sure you'll feel right at home in no time!

Just bought my Epic today. Came from a Hero and I couldn't be happier. I was considering holding out for a 4 inch palm device but just couldn't wait any longer. The Hero was laggy and just not performing as good as I thought it should be. The 1Ghz processor in the Epic just makes the device sing.
