This does not wipe the device

Samsung epic 4g update to 2.3.5

I have two 4G phones.  The one my wife uses received the OTA update three days agao and it went fine.  My phone has yet to receive the OTA update.  There used to be a way to force a update check and I am wondering if there is a way to do that with my phone?  Both phones were purchased on opeening day together and are on the same account.  I do not know the criteria for updating, but it seems strange to me that there would be a gap.

Thanks for any help.

Hi everyone. I got the update a few days ago, I like it so far, but the only strange thing I have noticed is, I have several different charging plugs all around my house and work. Some of them will no longer illuminate the red charging LED...they all still charge the phone and the lightening bolt symbol is in the battery level indicator while charging, but the LED itself doesn't work, but only with some cables...anyone else had this problem?
