    I picked up mine over lunch. The last one in my local Sprint store.
    I'm coming from webOS, so I'm struggling with abandonment issues (HP abandoning me, not me - them) and the relative complexity of configuration of the device. I know complexity really means customization, but until I get to tinker with Android, it's going to be a little intimidating. I mean, who knew there were customizable power savings options?

    My first love is still webOS, but this pretty girl has certainly turned my head around.
    Let me guess - you're trying to swipe sideways to delete mails like I am right now? I keep smacking my head, having been so used to doing things the WebOS way for so long. Getting the hang of it, at least.

    Everything's a learning curve....

    So I made another thread here as well but I figured you guys might be interested in this too.

    Hey guys so I walked into Bestbuy today to get my Epic 4g Touch and I go to play with it as the rep finishes my paperwork and look what I find on it that Bestbuy decided to throw in as a bonus!

    I was pretty upset. There was another one as well of a random Sprint fixture. Also before I even got the phone in my hand the reps were handing the phone off to each other to check it out. They didn't even know anything about it nor of its release this morning.

    I just love the place for cables and accessories. Quality of their stuff is excellent and you can't beat the prices. Their MHL adaptor is $14.

    MHL Adaptor:

    For only $11.90 each when QTY 50+ purchased - Micro USB to HDMI MHL Adapter - Black | MHL Adapters

    I also opted for a 6ft 28AWG HDMI cable instead of the recommended 24AWG, since I prefer a thinner more flexible cable for this hookup. 28AWG at 6ft is perfectly fine in my opinion. $3.50 for the cable.

    For only $2.99 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 6ft 28AWG High Speed HDMI Cable w/Ferrite Cores - Black | 28AWG HDMI High Speed Certified Male to Male Cables
    Wow right after reading your post I placed order.
    2Hr & 38min later they send me tracking number

    Yeah man I forgot to mention that. They move really fast on orders. They're based in southern California so I almost always receive my orders next day.

    Got my epic 4G touch first thing this morning when sprint opened up the doors. All I can say about this phone is it deserves the name "epic" in its title

    Haha 4x is a stretch, but I stuck my Pre on top of my E4GT and this thing does dwarf it. It's like looking at a bazooka next to a pea shooter.
    True. I made the picture "actual size" but it wasn't actually actual. Maybe 2 times the size of the Pre vs 4!

    I picked mine up at Best Buy about 2 hours ago. One of only 2 they got in today. I've had personal experience with the Epic, EVO 4G and EVO 3D and this phone outpaces them all. This is the fastest phone I've ever had and the screen is B-E-A-utiful. Also, Sprint has a great case for this thing that resembles the faux carbon fiber look of the back and even comes with a little kick stand. If you're eligible for an upgrade and have been waiting for the ultimate phone, your wait is over. Go out and get this beast, you will not be disappointed. By the way, got it for 143.00 after trading in an old Transform for a 75.00 gift card.

    How much wider is this than the EVO4G? What about the Thunderbolt, if anyone went from that to this phone?

    Thanks! Great looking device...

    It's about the same width as the EVO 4g and perhaps about a 1/2 " taller, and maybe a 1/4 inch thinner. I just got my SGII today, and I like it, but I have to say I am missing my HTC sense...

    EDIT: It is slightly wider too, I have had little sleep, and I am on my fourth Tecate beer right now... lol

    Got mine earlier today. Coming from a Pre...this this is like future technology. I miss the weOS gestures, ESPECIALLY the back swipe, but the multiple home screens and widgets are definitely handy.

    Damn I'm not eleigible for an upgrade until October 1st. Very happy with my EVO 4G and looking to upgrade to the Epic 4g Touch. I hope they make a swivel holster clip soon with the phone facing out.

    The lack of NFC makes this a pass for me. Too bad... I'll get the iPhone 5 or Nexus Prime.

    Got mine today at best buy mobile. Returned the Photon for it. It actually "feels" smaller than I thought it would. Loving the screen, but if bars are any indication my Photon did get better signal reception. (yes bars often lie)

    At any rate I'm loving it.

    After three visits to different Best Buys in Queens - NY, I was able to finally get a hold of one. Returned the Photon and got the E4GT within the 30 day window.

    I have mines. Was at the door at 10 while they setup the phone on display. Walked in and said I'm here to get my phone. "They were like...you want to see it ?" Nope. already know what I need to know.

    So I received my phone, grabbed the kickstand case/shell, and my 16g SD card, and went along my merry way

    Ok, the name of this phone should be beauty and the beast. Beautiful outside and like a beast that wants to be set loose in the inside.

    Love it,

    I signed up a motnh ago for Samsung Galaxy S 2 release news from Samsung in USA and today received $ 100 off coupon discount ( 0nly 1000 phones were available with this discount) and ordered through letstalk.com for $ 99 with 2-year upgrade. Shipping starts on 09/21 so far from website. But later today received email from letstalk stating that waiting time could be 2-4 weeks. Well i guess for that price i can wait!

    I tried Best Buy on the way home from work, they only had one left and it was on hold. So I headed over to the local corporate Sprint store, crossed my fingers, and went in. I told the greeter I was looking to upgrade to the Epic 4G Touch and asked if they had any, he said yes and added me to the waiting list. I was ninth in line, but it moved fast. I played with the store demo while I waited only about ten minutes. After that I was certain I wanted it. When my name was called I was cheerfully upgraded. Thanks to Android I was sync'ed and loaded up in the time it took the rep to go get the printout for my new 2-year agreement.
