    I am ignoring the update for a week now Takehiro and it still won't go away. Samsung had to get rid of it due to apple and they will continue to send it out. How did yours stop? Webwevers I was the one who brought up about the phone trying to search now for the best 3G signal and if you live in a poor Sprint area, the phone keeps searching, thus draining the battery as Sprint upped the OS with a feature that locks onto better signals. I am in an area where cell phones (all companies) go to die, as the townsfolk won't allow anyone touching, or repairing, the towers, or adding new ones (fear of radiation yet they all keep phones next to their ears (hypocrites!)).

    I haven't said anything about it but I did purchase Christmas HD which is a customizable scrolling wallpaper that my kids really like. That's the only problem that I have with it - I paid for something that I now can't use.
    You can set Christmas HD to automatically scroll. It may not be ideal for you, but it will work and the entire scene will be visible.

    I wish I knew what to tell you. My phone isn't rooted yet I haven't seen the update for days. I do frequently use the built in Task manager to end running programs and clear out the RAM but I don't think that would have anything to do with it. I only reboot the phone once or twice a week and the last time I did, the update came up once then disappeared. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    Is anyone else seeing this issue, when setting a wallpaper now I can no longer select landscape or portrait mode, it also seems to select a much smaller area than before, I'm using a third party app to set my WP now

    Why do you keep saying that they made this change because of Apple? I've yet to find any evidence of this.

    Recently I've had errors relating to data with a pop up message saying, "data connection error". Is this the LOS issue every one talks about?

    I don't know what would cause that message for you, but no that's not LOS. For the most part, the LOS bug was squashed in the EK02 update. It can still happen, but the circumstances that can cause it are far more rare.

    My GPS is worse. It reports in foursqare and places that I'm still at places I was hours earlier. GPS finds no signal inside buildings that it worked in before
    This is happening with foursquare outside of the Epic Touch. Hopefully foursquare gets an update soon.

    I was trying to update the ap news widget,then noticed the browser wasn't working either. updating prl and profile didn't help fix the problem. Putting the phone in airplane mode and back fixed the problem though.

    I am also having data troubles when I'm connected to wifi. I have to disable wifi and enable it again for it to work. I'm hoping Samsung fixes this issue soon because I love this phone.

    I'm not sure if I got that exact error, but I've gotten LOS that I had to reboot the phone to fix. Only happened once, so other than that everything has been fine.

    Is there anyway to make the update notification go away? I keep rejecting it, but it keeps popping up.

    I believe it may go away on it's own after a certain period of time goes by. Mine suddenly went away yesterday, but it hasn't been enough time to say conclusively that it's gone for good. Although, it's the only thing that makes sense to me since the firmware doesn't have a toggle to turn update checks off.

    Otherwise, unless you've rooted your phone, no there is not a way to disable the update notifications. Deal with it for a bit longer and hopefully they will go away for you.

    Yeah, I've been denying the install for the past week at least three times per day. I notice that it pops up when I plug in the charger or reboot. Yesterday and today, however, I've had no notifications. I'd imagine that after so many tries to push, it just gives up. Kind of like how ugly women try to get past the bouncer.

    Only thing I've noticed is that the phone answer screen changed, and that the pages now cycle around if I go all the way right or all the way left. Makes it easier to get to a particular page without having to notice where I'm starting from.

    What is so friggin difficult to understand?

    1) Scrolling wallpapers is a BASIC, FUNDAMENTAL feature of the Android O/S, it should not be removed.

    2) People purchased live wallpapers that they now cannot use.

    3) It's not a patent issue because AFAIK the iPhone does not have scrolling wallpapers.

    4) Live Wallpaper developers are pissed. See #1.

    Very simple. If this is Samsung's plan, to mess with basic Android features, I will no longer buy Samsung phones. There are plenty of other Android handset manufacturers.
    I agree..... Updates should fix problems and leave stuff that aint broke alone

    For of you that did update roll back to EK02. I had started a thread on this.There wasa lot of help from people in the community on how to do this.

    I still not have updated and do not intend to.

    It went away for me after 3 to 4 days. Others here haven't been so lucky. Hang in there!

    I've been getting the data connection error too. When I don't get it my battery isn't lasting any longer, but with the error it's worse. I'm thinking just because the error causes me to use my phone longer until it works or I give up. It's inconsistent too. Sometimes it's only the AP news widget but everything else works (internet, weather) but other times it's everything. Even when working my speeds are a little slower but not annoyingly so.

    Chris I LOVE your ugly woman and a bouncer comparison! NOT! It may go away for a bit but will return as SAMSUNG has to get rid of the scrolling homescreen wallpapers now. So don't gloat and don't insult women ugly or otherwise! It's not a workaround Nozzles. The feature to make it scroll or not to scroll doesn't even work from the market as that feature with the update was LOCKED on the phone. Takehiro you got extremely lucky or you aren't telling it quite the way it is. I've had the update going for over a week now and Samsung can't let it stay. For those that won't upload it, I heard a rumor Samsung may push it through as they have to get it off all their android phones even though it's an android feature (scrolling wallpaper).
