    I'm very, very pleased. 24 hours and I have no regrets. This phone is so light, so thin. In the Sprint store they pulled one out and I thought it was one of the dummy units they had on display. She couldn't sell it to me because it was the demo, so I ended up going to Best Buy.

    I don't know what the next Nexus is going to be like, but if it's anything as sharp as this phone, I see why Apple is pulling out the patent war chest to stop these guys. This phone is amazing ...

    Is anyone having trouble with Swype? Swype is not putting a space between "and I".

    I have not seen any major retailer with NFC checkout, so I'm not one bit worried about that tec yet. May be NFC will take off in a few years. Besides NFC does NOT give you miles/points for anything. Nothing like whipping out that plastic
    We haven't seen any major retailers with NFC because those of us who are security conscious don't want to carry a plastic card with an NFC chip in that can't be turned off. This technology in a phone can be password protected 3 different ways. Google Wallet is due to be released before the end of the month with major retailers on board from the start. Knowing Google, I doubt it will take a few years to catch on. Since it can be linked to any bank card, I can see no reason you wouldn't still get your points and discounts. Keep in mind the most common way a person's credit card info is stolen is by handing it to a waiter or waitress who disappears with it for 5 minutes.

    Here's a great source for all things NFC.

    Traded in my evo 3d as a new sprint customer, contract signed 9/7 to get in under the old $200 early termination fee. Beautiful phone, but touchwizz not as nice as HTC sense. I'm a refuge from the WebOS since HP dropped the ball. Been using a pre+ for about 1.5 years. Don't like the screen protectors and nobody had a decent leather case, so I got the small galaxy tab case to use until they get in some accessories at the store. evo 3d my first android, so I'm just getting going.
    Install a launcher like ADW or Launcher Pro and you'll never even know Touch Wiz is on your phone. It'll still be there, but you'll use the custom Launcher's settings to tweak the interface.

    I got mine last night. I got the very last one they had in the store.. Took calling to several Sprint & Best Buy stores to find it. Took my extra 2 HTC Zero's (Hero's lol) and my Evo down with me. I have a 2nd line so I traded in both of my Hero's for an Extra $88 in Best Buy gift cards and then transferred my Evo to the 2nd line. Not a bad deal!!! Still getting used to the phone but so far.. I'm really liking the change..

    If you call Sprint on the 16th.. You might be able to get them to let you upgrade Earlier.. My other phone was eligible to upgrade until Oct 1st as well.. But when I spoke to them on Friday they said that on Sunday I would be able to. All you have to do is ask and see what they can do.. I did it when I had the damn Hero. I got off the phone and go my EVO.. Which my other number is currently using.. So try that.. GOOD LUCK!!!

    Hi, all. I just retired my day-one Palm Pre and purchased my day-one Epic 4G Touch on Friday. I'm actually quite impressed with everything, including Android. While I dearly love webOS, I'm now not sure what all the fuss was about. This phone rocks quite handily.

    I am trying to see how long I can go without charging the Epic 4G Touch. I am at 19 h 24 m!

    I have 42% power remaining. I am not going to put it on the charger tonight either!

    The best I ever got with the EVO 4G was 12 hours.

    19+ hours? Are you using the phone at all or is it just sitting there? Mine lasted about 11 hours today, which still isn't bad, but I don't how I can get this puppy remotely close to 19+ hours. I have WiFi and Bluetooth set to on all the time, but that's it...Oh, and only 3G here.

    I got mine yesterday at Best Buy, they only got 2 in and I got the last one. Tried the day before (Friday) at a closer Best Buy but they wouldn't give me the price match from Wirefly because it said it would ship Tuesday so it wasn't in stock, they also had only 2 and I was holding the last one with someone drooling behind me, it was hard to put it back. The second store Saturday didn't blink at the ship on Tuesday notice and gave it to me for $149.95...very happy.
    This is my first smart phone so i have a lot to learn, so glad I found this forum, looks to have a wealth of knowledge.
    BTW.. according to the user's manual that was linked from this site a few days ago, the E4GT was suppose to come with a 2gb sd card installed, some how I don't think I was the only one disappointed not to find one.

    Was that with 4G turned on or 3G only?

    Picked up mine about 3 hours ago from the Sprint store. The display model was out, but apparently, I was the first one to ask for the Epic Touch, which I found mildly shocking. Then again, with the hype going around with that-phone-I-won't-mention, I'm not entirely surprised, either!

    After wheedling and deedling with my 1st-day Pre for almost the last 2 years, this phone is a breath of fresh air! Fast, light, and quite perky. Sadly, I do miss WebOS, as I find myself trying to do things as I did with my Pre, but I imagine there's an adjustment period. Quite happy!
    For those webOS converts: get wave launcher. It helps ease some of the withdraw.

    I got mine on launch day and I haven't been able to put it down! Coming from an EVO 4G, having all the app space is a breath of fresh air. I got so tired to seeing the low memory warning on my EVO. The screen on this phone is beautiful. I was nervous at first, due to the resolution being relatively low (on paper), but in person, I have no complaints about the screen at all. The colors just pop and text is very easy to read. I love the custumization that Android allows (I also have an iphone 4 for work and get so frustrated with how boring the user interface is).

    The camera on this phone is also great. I think I can now really replace the point-and-shoot camera that I usually carry around in my purse. I do wish it had a physical camera button, but I'll get over it.

    Well I finally was able to gat mine last night at Radio Shack in Old Bridge NJ. The staff there made it an easy exchange. I like the phone alot so far, takes some getting used to coming from the evo3d but I feel this phone is so much better so far. I thought I would miss the 3d but i really dont. Now i just have to purchase a case/holster for it.

    +1 The first thing that turned me off to the EVO 3D was the charging port on the side.

    I got mine on its release day.. Friday 9/16. Went into Sprint store a couple days prior after deciding on the Galaxy S II, didn't realize that only the older keyboard version was available at that point. I had been reading reviews from dozens of sites, watching comparison/benchmark videos that showed this phone's stellar performance ( In your face iPhone 4!). It beats out just about every phone out there!

    So I had made an appt to pick it up ( Sunday) yesterday cuz I didnt think I would have the time before then. I put a "deposit " down on it on Wed the14th , meaning I bought a $50 Sprint gift card that I could apply to the phone as sort of a guarantee that I would be back to pick it up. So they put one aside for me I practically flew to the Sprint store as soon as I was able on Firday.. cuz I could not wait. I have pretty much been on it it every available waking moment since then. The first night I got it, I almost fell asleep while playing with it, had dreams about it, then woke up and was right back at it.

    I may just advance/enhance my Andorid experience by learning how to root, but I don't want to mess up my beautiful baby!

    I picked up mine on Friday and have been playing oops...working with it ever since.

    This thing is FAST. On my 'n' wireless router there is vertually no delay whatsoever in opening pages and downloading stuff. Amazing. Big gorgeous display, super colors, high capacity storage, what a beast. I bought the Evo 4G the day it came out June 2010 and had been impressed by how good that one was. This Samsung is very much better than the Evo. You gotta see it to believe it. Also got $87 credit for my Evo....so the cost was only $112. Not bad.

    But I will be buying the extended battery as soon as it's available.
