I was LOYAL to my Blackberry. After a 5 year relationship, my final Blackberry stopped working and left me calendar-less on a busy day. I went to my Sprint store and opted for the Epic 4G. I'm not really a fan of touch screen phones - I prefer a keyboard - they're solid. The screen is actually pretty great on this phone - and the Swype keyboard is the COOLEST thing ever. One-handed emailing isn't easy but it seems so on the Epic. Good job Samsung!
