    I am considering getting the Epic 4G Touch as I am sick of the EVO 4G. The dudes at Sprint told me that the Epic is the way to go as it is in the Galaxy S II line up. Do you guys who have the 4G Touch have any cons about the device? Will this device support ICS? So far I am kind of liking the device so I may grab it tomorrow.

    The only con I can think of is that it may be too big for your liking. But since you have the evo I'm sure you don't mind. It will get ICS btw. Might take a while but it definetly will

    If I was certain that the Photon was getting ICS, would choose it instead, better radio's

    I love the Epic 4G Touch. The screen is awesome. The sound is wonderful and I have had no problems with it at all.

    Even when I thought I had screwed up with rooting it Samsung phones are almost unbrickable. I thought I would not like the phone because of the Touch Wiz interface since I had come from Sense and then CM ROM, but Go Launcher is just what I needed until CM9 is ready for the Epic 4G Touch.

    Hope you choose the Touch and that you are enjoying your phone as much as I am.

    I came from the EVO to the E4GT and I love it. Only issue I've had is the GPS can be a bit wonky at times, but other than that it's been absolutely perfect.

    I came from an EVO I got on launch day back in 2010, what a great phone that was! I had far less issues when it came to updates compared to Samsung, but the actual function, feel, camera, screen, zippyness of the Samsung is much much better than the EVO

    I have been a BB user the majority of my adult life, the first smartphone, the second smartphone phone is the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic touch . The experience is like day and night, while the BB was somber, business like, some what rigid, the Samsung is lively! challenging to use to say the least, does so much more, it's a radio, recorder, music player, in short the BB is like AM radio, the Samsung GS2 E 4G is like FM Stereo with speakers set on BLAST! So set back and enjoy the experience.

    It's a great phone. There will be little things that you don't like or that will take some getting used to, but that goes for any device. You won't regret your choice.

    Good luck with it. It is currently the best Sprint phone out right now and probably one of the best Android devices right now as well.

    My first question...How do I save pictures in a text (MMS)? With the EVO all I had to do was long press on the picture and select save but I can't seem to figure it out on this one.

    This is exactly what I did. I love the Epic Touch. There is no other phone as good as the Epic Touch including the Nexus, I spent hours with the Nexus trying out everything.

    Haha, I looked through that nexus workarounds thread and I'm really surprised how much it's missing by default. It's just an epic fail (pun intended ).

    Long-press on the photo in the messaging app (do not short-tap the photo, which will bring it up in the Gallery.). After you long-press on the photo in the messaging app, you should get a pop-up that says "Message options". You can then select "Attached items".

    The phone will then show you the attached item (typically a jpg). It will have a checkmark in front of the filename that you can check. Then you can click "Save". It will then offer you the option to rename the file and then you click "OK". It will be saved on the SD card in the "download' folder and you can also view it in the Gallery app.

    I remember playing around with the evo 4g after I got the epic touch, it's actually not that bad of a phone that you can't wait a few months to upgrade to the next gen line up of sprint phones. The epic touch is a great phone but there are a few missing next gen features like display resolution and LTE.

    The Epic 4G Touch has the same "halo status" feel that the Evo 4G did when it was released. When the Evo 4G was released, it was a bad-*** phone. It still is... Smart phones have been released on sprint since then, but none of them have that same "warm and fuzzy" feeling the Evo 4G gave. At least not until the Epic 4G Touch. This thing is a power house. Plus, there's none of that HTC unlocker tool nonsense with this phone.

    I was a HTC junkie. Now, I'm a convert. I'll stick with Samsung for a while, as long as they are able to keep making phones like the E4GT.
