    Posted on the Samsung site - it's a convoluted (i.e., typical Samsung) install. Supposedly fixes the FOTA released by AT&T a few weeks ago. Requires a hard reset. Good luck, all.

    Is it just me or is anyone noticing a very short battery life with the new firmware?

    One of the big pluses of the Epix has been the battery life and now two days in a row the battery has gone low at around 5 pm after being fully charged at night.

    Anyone else?

    Since I updated 8 days ago, this happened to me once. I thought it may have been a new program (Microsoft myPhone and Microsoft Facebook), so I uninstalled those programs and haven't seen it again. However, there are theories on other message boards that it may be related to the GPS function - if you're having trouble getting locks, it may be causing a high current drain situation. Try soft rebooting and leaving all GPS-related functions off to see if the current drain persists.

    Seeing the same thing. Frustrating, as this was the best battery life I've had in a smartphone. I could easily get 2 to 2.5 days prior to this.

    Same issue. Now I'm playing with a phone that has an updated PDA ROM and the old PHONE ROM. They don't seem to playing nicely together because I'm having more issues than I was before. Samsung update process is ridiculous, that's for sure.

    UPDATE: Does anyone have an esitmated time for the install to finish? I disabled some missed Firewall settings, which got me farther than my last attempt. But, I've been at the ChangeUSB OK step for at least 15 min already.

    UPDATE: Found my answer to my problem, which was the update got stuck at the event, ChangeUSB OK. Answer is at the first post of this thread: http://forums.wireless.att.com/cng/b...cending&page=1

    what does this update fix?... it seems like it's pretty problematic but doesn't buy you anything. Is it worth trying to install? What's the FOTA?
