    I got the update yesterday, some how now I'm using Fracking Sprint ID which I HATE! hope that wasn't too strong. I like the Samsung interface much better, it's really one of the things I like about this phone over that piece of garbage Transform I used to use.

    Is there a way to go back to stop using Sprint ID with out resetting phone back to factory specs?

    Peace thanks

    Can't you go into Sprint ID in the app drawer and sign out or choose to not use?

    Click the SprintID app and select Samsung as your ID pack.

    I just now updated my phone after holding off for 3 days. I held off since I had no reception issues on eg30.
    1) I do miss the "bounce" effect that we had before this upgrade.
    2) I now have "sprint" displayed on the upper right hand corner when I wake my phone and the pattern lock screen appears.
    3)I had great reception before and did not have any LOS and reception appears to be the same before and after the upgrade
    4) Wifi/3G/4G speeds are mixed. I noticed that 3G speed increased but 4G and Wifi download speeds decreased significantly
    Here are my speeds for EG30/EK02
    3G: 835kbps down 47kbps up / 1409kbps down 421 kbps up
    4G: 5408kbps down 1075 kbps up / 2221 kbps down 904 kbps up
    WIFI: 18554kbps down 18027 kbps up / 15353kbps down 19231 kbps up
    5) I like the new swype keyboard and how they moved the English to Spanish button as I would hit this button by accident many times when typing.
    6) I have not used the phone enough since the update to report on battery life but I will update after a couple days of use. I just hope I dont have more battery usage as others have reported after the update.

    Hope this helps!

    Go into Settings/Applications/Manage Apps > Click the "All" tab and find "TW Launcher" and "Launcher". Open each and select "clear defaults". When you hit the home button and try to open the App Launcher screen it should pop up a box asking which program you'd like to use to complete the action. Select TW Launcher and set the default and you should have TouchWiz back.

    How can you guys be sure about your increased or decreased in 3g/4g speed. I have great signal at my house and if I move 3 feet, I get different download speed on 3g/4g. Also results vary day to day.

    Everything seems to be working fine except that my battery seems to be draining faster. I've had my phone off the charger for 2h 21m and I'm already down to 70% (51% Display on 54m @ auto brightness; 29% Android OS CPU total 21m).

    I've only had the update since this morning and installed a couple apps recently, so it's too soon for me to know who the culprit is.
    Following up on my previous post: I'm definitely having battery issues after applying the update. My battery widget indicated that I had already used 70% of my battery when I took the screen caps which equates to about 8%/hr loss. The drain rate is also pretty linear as opposed to stepped which makes me think that something about the OS is draining my battery; OS usage of 57% pretty much confirms this.

    My phone sits on my desk most of the day while at work, and I usually only use to check my Gmail when I see the notification light flashing. This kind of usage should result in a drain rate of 5%/hr or less...

    So yeah...not cool. Any thoughts on how to remedy this?

    Something has changed since you updated.

    The basics are in the Getting Started section on Extend Your Battery - Speed Up Your Phone.

    There are specific instructions for the Epic 4G Touch here including the power management settings: 30+ Hours Battery Life

    Basically, you just turn everything off, remove widgets, etc. and see if you are losing less than 2% an hour. Then start turning things on until you find the problem.

    You have some rouge app, widget, or setting doing this. Hunt and kill it.

    There is defininitely something up now with this update.

    I am no longer able to connect WiFi (no problems prior)

    I cannot set which Launcher for default in manage applications. Both Launcher and TWLauncher have grayed out default

    More laggy

    Not looking forward but will need to do a factory reset - bah humbug.

    I just got the update this morning and haven't had any trouble whatsoever. My first alarm woke me up and I had a notice about the update. I fell asleep while it installed and all was ready when the second alarm went off. After a day on it I haven't had any problems except the pinch to zoom in the app drawer and a problem going to Google Voice from the notification. I haven't tried all of my 100 apps yet, but other than those two hiccups, everything has been great, including battery life.

    I'm in DC by the way.

    Hello folks. Perhaps some of these points I'm about to share are my mind convincing itself that there are more changes than what the update really brought on; but here is what I've noticed.

    1.) Yes, the blue glow is the obvious difference...it's kinda annoying and to be honest I never really noticed the "bounce" prior to this update. But now that I think about it and compare it to this blue glow effect...the bounce was more natural and fluid looking. Da**it Apple!

    2.) The phone is snappier for me overall with scrolling

    3.) The battery life is better

    4.) Even the stock samsung keyboard responds to touches better whereas it used to have a slight delay with touches

    5.) Swype is a lot faster and accurate; as well as they layout has changed.

    ALSO here's a FIX via the update...remember how if you were simultaneously using the phone while it was plugged into the wall using the supplied samsung wall charger that would moe the phone's screen go haywire and unusable??? Well no more; it works just fine plugged in while using
