    The same thing happened to me but it only does it on the Samsung chrger that came with the phone. I can use any other AC charger and use the phone just fine.....Crazy!

    I've had this problem also and it practically makes the phone unusable while charging. It doesn't happen every time and I've seen no rhyme or reason for it. I'll try my palm pre charger and see if it happens again. hopefully Samsung has something in this works for this.

    I have the same problem. If I disable JuiceDefender, it seems to go away. Also, unplugging the phone from the stock OEM charger makes the problems go away instantaneously. I also bought the $18 Desktop Dock and Car Dock Deal for the Infuse 4G for AT&T and havent experienced any problems with that charger. It's .7 amps and the Epic Touch charger is 1 amp.

    Also have the same problem , don't always notice it, but I am randomly switching between my old Pre charger and the stock samsung one. My wife has the same one, but we only use the charger form the box of my phone and pre charger. Will have to start paying attention to when it happens and with which charger. Also time to take out the other samsung charger. Will let you guys know what happens.

    It's the stupid charger. I used the other stock samsung charger (from my wife's Epic Touch 4g) and my screen is usable. Same with my palm pre charger.
    So the stock charger that came with my phone is the problem. Time to visit Sprint store.

    I tried my palm pre charger also and it seems to work most of the time. One time I had the scene become unusable but it hasn't happened since. It happened frequently with the original Samsung charger.

    Here's what I am dealing with, just like many of you.

    I bought the phone and charged it with the stock charger. I couldn't even get passed the lock screen. It took me several swipes to get pass it, and even while I was doing that, it was struggling so hard to go to the home screen.

    Once in home screen, I pressed the application icon but it pulled down the scroll down menu from above instead. Tapping on certain icons to get to it doesn't open it. It either struggles to open it, or it does something else. It is really annoying, and I would love to use my phone WHILE it is ON the charger, but I guess that is not happening.

    Now, many of you have mentioned that once it juices up close to 100%, say 80%, it starts to work like it should. I experienced that also, but it still doesn't perform as it should.

    I do have another charger that I ordered on Amazon, but I haven't used it as it came through the mail while I have already left home for vacation. Once I return back home, I will test the new one out, and see how that works.

    Has anyone found anything else with this?

    here is a short video of my problem (I know I'm in the wrong forum, it's an AT&T version :-)
    (see link in next post)

    can someone confirm this is the same as the problem you're having?

    With Samsung and generic chargers and cables, and four outlets, I isolated the problem down to the two outlets (faulty ground wiring?)

    My current workaround is to charge using the other two outlets.

    This is supposedly fixed in the EK02 update.

    It's really not fixed....
    EK02 still hangs on modem sometimes.... I'm not sure how they went about to fix the problem, but when the modem sleeps (either 3G or 4G) 7 out of 10 times it will correct itself. the other 3 (especially using stock browser or Maps/Location services) it will hang.
    That being said, EK02 still doesn't allow you to completely get past home screen - it might be because of an issue with TouchWiz.
    I can play a game, say ShadowGun - then plug in stock charger, and i can continue playing. If i shut off the phone (accidentily) while plugged in using STOCK charger, it will become all weird and gradually if not immediately become unplayable. I will try using HTC stock charger or Kindle charger.

    I only have this problem with the stock charger, screen becomes unusable. However when plugged into a PC or car charger unit I don't have any issues. Using the stock charger also chargers the phone way faster than the car charger and when plugged into a PC though. And to answer someones question from earlier, I do use a screen protector.

    I was having the same problem before I rooted the phone and flashed Calkulin's Epic 4g Touch ROM. It must be a software issue.

    I am on Calk's ROM too and it does seem to fix the slow screen response. I tried it on two stock chargers now while the phone was at 10% where it would draw a lot of current making the touch screen really laggy. So for those on stock, the EK02 update should fix the problem.
