Samsung Epic 4g - Custom Theme - Back To Factory

Uninstalled the custom theme and the other progam that makes it run. That put it back to factory. Then i was doing other things and tried to go back to home, and it made me choose which action to take to get there. I chose "android" and told it to use this by default.

Well, apparently, this takes it back to like the vanilla android, i guess? I don't like it. That was half the reason i hated the custom theme because it ran things like vanilla andriod.

I must be the only person that prefers this, but please help me get back to factory.

Samsung Epic 4g - Weird Stuff Happening That Need Reset

Lately weird things are happening to my epic. First, i realized that i'm only able to send text messages but i wasn't receiving any incoming messages. So i took out the battery put it back (soft reset) and then all old messages from two days ago started going out and the messaging is working again. But now i had another weird thing happening. When putting in headphones the audio was coming out of the headphones and out of the phone as well. Plus the sound was terrible. I tried this with a few different headphones to confirm the problem was with the phone itself. Well, yes, i took out the battery and made yet another reset and walla! Its working fine.

Issue: Apps Disappear From Sd Card, After I Factory Reset The Phone

Moved apps to sd card, did master reset, where did my apps go? I moved all my apps to my sd card by using my phone. I backed up all of my pictures and everything, and then did a factory reset on my phone. I plugged in my sd card expecting to see all of my apps that i had moved to my sd card (about 15 of them) and i can't find them anywhere. Anybody have any ideas? Of course, i can download all of my apps again, but some were paid apps, some from the amazon appstore. I have searched everything that i can think of, and haven't found any sort of answer. My phone is not rooted either.

Samsung Epic 4g - One Of Dock Widgets Will Not Work

I know someone else posted this before, but i can't find it now. Maybe it's buried in the bug thread. There are 4 icons on the dock, and the one second from the left (next to phone one) will not work. It was for contacts. I deleted it and changed it to market, and that won't work either. It says: "could not launch the requested activity. "

Samsung Epic 4g - Why Isn't Epic Updating (newbie)

I recently got my lovely epic replaced because of some problems. So far this device is fine, except for updating. Under the "about phone", i scroll to "baseband version" and the after the last . It says di07. This isn't the latest, is it? I go to "system updates" and i tried "update firmware", it just says "no software update is available at this time. Your current software is up to date. " . "Update profile" doesn't do anything, and "update android" says i'm already on the latest.

Also, on my old epic i noticed i had the updated market (separate tab for comments). On this epic i don't see that, its the old market.

Samsung Epic 4g - Usb Port Not Enough To Charge Epic While Using It

When i plug my samsung epic into the usb port of my dell desktop at work i can see it's charging, but the charge is apparently not enough to even remain at battery level if i'm using it to phone, message, speaker or tether. This is not the case when i plug the phone into the wall charger (espcially my wife's 900ma evo charger or my dodge ram's usb port)damn shame really as it limits how long i can tether for.

Samsung Epic 4g - Epic Can Use Usb And Bluetooth On A Mac

To those who are wondering whether they can connect their epic to a mac for usb and bluetooth file transfers:you can absolutely mount your epic on a mac. From the epic's home screen, either go to: (1) home screen (menu button) > applications > development or (2) (under launcher pro only) home screen (menu button) > preferences > advanced settings. From there, enable usb debugging. Now plug in your micro-to-usb cable. A prompt will appear on your epic; select mass storage. Your sd card will then appear on the desktop of your mac and you can transfer whatever you like.

Here's the other way to mount your sd on a mac: switch off your epic, remove the sd card, slip it into the card adapter it came with and plug the adapter into your usb port. (I do hope that everyone who experiences connection issues with a mac and any other smartphone or media player will now know enough to try this before posting rants about how bad their new _ is for "causing" the problem. )

Bluetooth also works, though you won't be able to see the epic's file menu on your mac's desktop. Under bluetooth, your mac will identify and pair with your epic (and identify it as a "smartphone") as soon as you make your phone and mac visible and set up your epic on the mac as a device. However, your mac won't connect until you access the pull-down bluetooth menu from the upper right-hand corner of its screen. From there, scroll down to the name of your device and select "send file". Select the file you wish to send and you're done. You should also tell your epic always to allow your mac to send files if you don't want to kill bluetooth transfers under apps or disrupt whatever else you're doing on your phone to answer individual prompts.
