Re: 7/12 - Samsung Epic 4G Touch Software Update - Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0.4) - FF18

not even weeks - MONTHS! Sprint was the first to start working on the ICS upgrade back in 2/2012 and the last to deliver.

I still can't get the phone to show up on my Windows 7 box; I have to remove the microSD card and mount that to the PC. Not very convenient. As for the alleged 4G, this is my second 4G phone with Sprint in San Francisco and I've never had 4G coverage anywhere, ever. EVER. So the unlimited data plan is pretty safe for Sprint.

I believe screen capture is now Volume Down and Power Off at the same time.

Everything I've seems references the Samsung Galaxy SII Epic 4G Touch for the Android the 4.0 ICS upgrade. 

So, does anyone know if the original Samsung Galaxy Epic 4G will also be getting upgraded to Android 4.0 ICS?

The Epic is not scheduled to get ICS.  this is from theSamsung page http://www.samsung.com/us/support/SupportOwnersFAQPopup.do?faq_id=FAQ00046726&fm_seq=49755

I finally found how to fix the Swype issue. I seem to rarely connect to 4G now, but the main other problem is that Pandora doesn't seem to work. It will try and buffer a song and will eventually give up and move on to the next, rinse/repeat. Anyone else have this issue? It seems to work OK if I'm on WiFi, but even if I'm on 4G it won't work. I've checked my download speeds and it looks like plenty of bandwidth for pandora.

I tried this (removed the pairing from phone & car, removed battery, restarted phone) & it still isn't working with my Ford sync. Does anyone have other suggestions?

Has anyone had a problem with constant updates? I used to turn google play off in sync settings. Now it not there and stupid programs keep sending me notifications.about to delete some apps because of the nagging notices.

To all struggling with or interested in the ICS update to the Samsung Epic 4G Galaxy S2:

Please consider reviewing the link below and adding your thoughts on the larger mobile computing/Android industry implications raised by the flawed ICS update.

Thank you.
