Samsung Epic 4G Touch Hits Radio Problems; Fix Promised

Advertisement

When we recently ran Samsung’s Galaxy S II on Sprint – the Epic 4G Touch – through its paces, we were mostly pleased with performance of its data connection, even though we did notice the odd hiccup. You can count us among the lucky, then, because apparently there are a good number of Epic 4G Touch users who have been running into far more serious connectivity problems with their new phones.

Is this Apple’s “antennagate” all over again? We’re hearing that Epic 4G Touch owners are having calls dropped on them and experiencing much slower-than-expected data speeds. We’re not sure if this is a hardware issue, software problem, or a combination of the two, but Sprint and Samsung are reportedly aware of the problem. At least one user was told that the companies expected to release a fix within the next two weeks, pointing to this being a (hopefully easily-repaired) software issue.

So, if you’ve been running into problems with the quality of your voice or data connections, worry not, for help should arrive shortly. If everything’s been working smoothly on your Epic 4G Touch so far, knock on wood.
