That won't stop me either Crainger, I still keep riding. The only thing is that I sometimes make wrong turns like I did today while leading 8 others.

He posted a video and it was working crappy just like we said.

Samsung even agrees they screwed up and that is why they are working on fixing it. The GPS does not work fine on these phones and neither does the compass.

Try driving using navigation and see how many times it screws up.
Have you tried the new Epic 4G fix that was posted on XDA? Getting a nice accurate fix in less than 10 seconds indoors now. I still get the occasional jump, but at least I don't have to wait 5 minutes before seeing a single satellite.

Well my second Vibrant (returned the first one) seems to get a lock a lot quicker for some reason. I have read that the Sprint Epic phones are working correctly. I will wait until next month when the official fix is supposedly to come out.

I saw this phone few days, damn its one big phone.

Much bigger then my Fuze, maybe I will install the Android 2.2 port that they made for Fuze, and forget about buying a new android phone for now.

yeah I saw it too. I think its too big for my taste. Wave on the other side seems perfect.


Btw. Can anyone compare Wave to S os's ? Becouse I like wave much more as of design and materials go.
But what I will loose choosing bada is in wave?

I just put the Vibrant in my pocket. It rides right up along side my schlong which makes the phone look tiny in comparison. Sorry about you other guys...

Well, went to Seattle Saturday, couldn't get a gps lock for the life of me. Here in Spokane everything seems to work fine but on the road, complete crap.
