Epic- need advice

I think I am going to jump on this bandwagon. However, I am in need of a 3rd line anyways so what is the easiest way for me to do this? I do not have any upgrades, Sprint took our upgrades to replace crapt phones.

If you make a new line you get the credit anyways..so when ordering the device just make a new line...who are you planning on buying the device through?

lol wherever I can get it fastest.

However, after reading issues about the Galaxy issues with GPS not working correcty has me concerned. Samsung still hasn't fixed it. Just like they never fixed the wifi/cdma lockups on the Moment. I can reproduce the issue on both our Moments and Sprint denies its an issue because they know it wont be fixed .

Well Samsung said its an issue..but based on what I heard its a software issue...Ive seen this article which used multiple GPS software and some software like google maps and others took forever..but others locked in instantly on the same device...my guess is that there may be a driver compatibility issue that is preventing it to lock in certain situations.

But in the end there is always the 30 days :/

Yeah true. The Evo seems impossible to get ahold of one...So may have to settle for the Epic.

Looking back..you may be glad you didn't settle for an Evo (pun intended)

Have you tried using a Vibrant or a Captivate at a store yet?

Sitting in the DMV 2 days ago next to a guy who had a Vibrant, he was showing me all of its coolness. Later that day took my friend to AT&Terrible to cancel her service on her iPhone, and while waiting for her I played with the Captivate. I had the Evo and returned it, and glad I did because I'm very sold on the Epic. That SuperAMOLED is just so beautiful, and everything on it just feels so fluent than when I had the Evo.

I can't wait. I preordered 2 today. I guess I will have to sell my EVO. Doubtful I won't be able to get my money out of it.

I have read dozens of articles and hundreds of forum posts over the past few weeks about the Samsung Epic. This is the first time I have seen anyone use the words "settle for the Epic".

The EVO is totally badass. I might end up selling the Epic if it isn't as good as my EVO, minus the 16GB SD card and possibly those headphones too. Couple things that EVO has: higher res cameras, interchangeable batteries with TP2 and Snap, Sense UI and already has Froyo. Also I really like HTC, I've been a user since the PPC6700 with every CDMA WM device going forward and even some GSM versions too.
