Hello to anyone left on this board. My all time favorite smartphone seems to be dying. The Sprint Samsung Epic 4G slider. I have been using it on wifi mode when I get sick of my GN2 touch keyboard. After some odd behavior I did a factory reset. After some intitial success restoring my old setup, I had to restart it and the stock android launcher appeared (Sprint ID feature). Unfortunately since I no longer have phone service I cannot get the Samsung Touchwiz option/ID back. The worst thing is that Google Play stopped working and I lost some apps like Google Maps. It is still usable with some apps I was able to reinstall but I seem to be out of luck. Any ideas out there? I am almost ready to try the Sprint Store option to see if they can somehow give me a temporary phone service connection to revive this old girl. I like the Galaxy Note series with the S pen but I am really missing the slider keyvoard. Ironically, I think Galaxy Note sized slider keyboard would be the perfect physical keyboard for a smartphone... That combined with an S pen would make it the killer business phone. Think of the full screen possibilities...

I am personally not too big on the larger hybrids either, but that is just me. As for your dying device, there probably isn't much that can be done about it.
