    I sure wish HP would license WebOS to Samsung! When enough people buy HP WebOS phones to attract the big medical software companies to that platform, then I'll jump back to it. WebOS is way nicer to use than this hodgepodge. But without the medical and nice utility apps, WebOS just isn't useful enough for me. Sigh...

    Switched over from palm pre & am loving it. Question:

    on PC, there is task manager to switch between open apps. Every once in a while this pops up on my screen but for the life of me I can't figure out what I did to cause it.

    Can anyone help me w this?

    If you tap-hold your home key, it will pop up a box with the last 6 apps you opened and a button for a full task manager (on the Epic at least).

    Hi, I'm Dave and I'm a new Epic 4G owner today. I upgraded from a Sprint Palm Pre. Loved the Pre but it was time to move on. I'm looking forward to learning android and all that this new toy can do.

    Edit: Had to return the Epic. It got such poor reception at my house that it was not usable. Giving the Evo a try and it seems to be working well so far. So, I'll be in the Evo forums.

    Hello all, just jumped on the Android ship from the Palm Pre. I've debated with myself for the longest time as to whether I wanted to get the Epic or not. My girlfriend probably got tired of hearing me debating all the time about it. Lol... But I finally did it. And at a good time too because I got it for $179.99 at RadioShack. I'm going to be browsing the forums and A/C site. But feel free to mention any recommended apps and tips. There are sooo many apps to choose from! I'm not used to this coming from the Pre!

    Edit: And yes, it's rooted.

    Greetings,

    I'm yet another convert from the Palm Pre. I've had my Epic for a couple of weeks now, and LOVE it!

    Well I must apologize, I haven't introduced myself yet. I'm another converted BlackBerry user now rockin an Samsung Epic 4G. And when I say rockin, I mean this phone kicks ALL form of ***, including hyena. The keyboard is taking a little while to get used to, but thats no surprise considering how long I used BlackBerry. Love the phone, love the OS. Not sure yet if I'm going to root the phone yet. I don't really understand what all the hubbub is about rooting. Anyways, hello AndroidCentral!!!

    I know! I'm LOVING this phone! If I had known it would have been this good, I would've switched sooner! Well, probably not as I would've had to pay full price for the phone. But yeah, rooting opens up a whole lot of options. I rooted mine the day after I got it. Haven't done much else to it, but one benefit of rooting is that you can remove or "freeze" (with Titanium Backup Pro) all of those crap apps that you know you'll never use. I personally removed that ridiculous Sprint NASCAR and Sprint Football. I HATE NASCAR, and I'm not the biggest fan of football either. There are some other apps that I want to freeze, or move to my SD card to make some more room. I can't stand useless clutter. But I'm still a n00b, so I'll be exploring more options along the way.

    And gswesq, I must say, I was loving WebOS, but this Epic 4g has SO many bells and whistles. I thought it was going to be too big for my tastes, and while it is bigger, it's nice having a larger screen. On the Palm Pre, I was always tapping the wrong stuff because of the cramped screen. Not to mention a highly reliable virtual keyboard with swype which makes quick texting a breeze without having to use the physical keyboard. Still getting used to all the options of this amazing smartphone!

    Hey, All. First time, long time. I jumped ship from VZW earlier this year after upgrading from a dumb phone to an HTC Incredible. Went through 3 Incredibles within my 30 day buyers remorse period (reboot...reboot...reboot...all day long.) But even with all the hardware problems I knew I had to have an Android device - And this from an Apple fanboy (been using Apple products for the past fifteen years!) So when I saw the Epic was due for release I preordered on the spot. I've been using it since launch day and have never looked back. I love this phone.

    Still running the stock launcher even though I put Froyo on it last week but I have Launcher Pro sitting there, begging to be used.

    I decided to stop lurking and start posting because I REALLY want to tinker with this phone. To make it my own. And what better place to find tips and tricks than with all of you fine folks here at Android Central.

    Cheers!

    Hi broken! You've definitely come to the right place if phone tweaking is your game - I image I'll see a lot of you over in ROMs/Hacks
