    Default Ns4g confirmed bugs

    I was in a Radio shack today talking to an employee about the evo 3d, and I was asked how I was liking my NS4G. I told the employee that I like the device, as I am in the Baltimore area and not experiencing any of the issues besides week wifi. The employee then forwarded me this "inside document" concerning current issues, thought I would share. (I have the file as a pdf but I do not know how to put it in the thread, so if any of you can tell me how I will be glad to do so).

    Those Google mother-truckers...

    But honestly, none of that really affects me (average user). I like the stock experience of the phone, or as they would call it, "a Google Experience device".

    You can just edit your post and click "Manage attachments" or post a new reply and click on the Paperclip above the text area. The PDF has to be below 2 MB in size to post here but I'd love to see a copy. Can you email it to me if the thread won't take it?

    I rather have a "google experirnece device" than "sprint bloated device". So for me most of this are non issues and the ones that are an issue is a very small issue

    Agreed. The only one issue I have with the phone is the wifi as of now. Which I know will get fixed somehow.

    As far as a list of everything from the epic. Love this phone.

    Everything on that list can be fixed with a third party app or a work around. I love my Nexus S and I won't trade it for the world.

    Well...I'd trade it for the world. But that isn't really a fair deal, eh?
