I got an Epic from my neighborhood Sprint store late in the afternoon the yesterday (8/31). I should have known when I was getting into my car and it did a spontaneous reset that I would have trouble. The next 18 hours consisted of frequent screen lockups, force closes, and battery pulls.

I went in to a different store by my office this morning. Their first answer was "install a task killer, all Androids need it." That did work somewhat better, but still crashes, hangs, and force closes. So they swapped out for a new unit. All is fine now, even without a task killer.

I suspect the unit had some bad internal memory, but IDK. It was one of the first shipments because it hadn't been updated to DG27 yet. The new unit was already updated.

Anyway, I just wanted to share that it wasn't all roses out there.
