    This is great news!

    If they fix this and the GPS quickly, this phone will be nearly perfect!

    What about the phone's CPU bogging down during 3G uploads?

    So it looks like the new TouchWiz, 3G fix (and maybe GPS fix?) and FroYo might all come in a neat little package. That would be nice

    Very clever to make this announcement (but not actually release any fix) shortly before most user's 30-day return window runs out.

    I'm not holding my breath on actually seeing a fix. Fortunately, if this is deliberate throttling, it is also a material breach of the contract, so you can ditch without an ETF when they finally are forced to own up to it.

    And there was much rejoycing... not that this is really much of an issue for me cause I don't do much uploading, tons of downloading.

    Great that they recognize the issue and working a fix, but releasing with the next maintenance release? Exactly when is the next maintenance release? 1 month, 2 or more?

    Well, the first one was just over 2 weeks after release, and that was after about 10 days of testing on Advocate phones.

    See during upload in 3g, cpu usage goes waaa up. For speedtest app, it goes up to 370% on my task manager. Wtf!

    Advocates received their phones for testing after the phone was released to the general public?

    Agree however, that was mainly for the media hub which Samsung was working on for a while! That is bringing them an added revenue source. Fixing issues gains them no addtl revenue.

    sounds like all those strident troublemakers got a benefit for everyone. too bad some reviews saw this problem and some did not, ehem.

    Sprint mods has also announced on their forums that device team is looking into cache problems with the GPS.

    Advocates received their phones for testing after the phone was released to the general public?
    no. Although on quite a few Sprint handsets advocates get them after release to the public, advocates got the epic before.

    But Andrew is referring to the Epic maintenance update from DG to DI07, whhc was pushed to testing phones, mostly internal employees and advocates , ten days before it was pushed to the general public.
