Verizon To Apple: Banning The Import Of Samsung Android Devices Is Not Something We're OK With

Well, this is certainly an interesting turn of events. In Samsung and Apple's ongoing attempts to sue the pants off one another in every court conceivable, an unlikely player has stepped into the arena as a voice of reason (sort of).

Verizon Wireless, the US's largest wireless carrier, has requested permission to file a brief in the Federal Court for the Northern District of California on the part of Samsung in one of the many lawsuits it is involved in with Apple.

[Leak] Android 2.3.5 Now Available For The Samsung Infuse 4G And Galaxy S 4G

Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S 4G on T-Mobile or the Samsung Infuse 4G on AT&T have been waiting quite a while to leave Froyo behind and move into the world of Gingerbread. While Sammy and AT&T or T-Mobile have yet to drop the flag on an official OTA for either device, the good folks over at SamFirmware have released leaked versions of Android 2.3.5 for both devices.

Since these are leaked, there's not much of a changelog floating around, nor is there any indication of whether or not this is a final build.

[Updated x2: Root May Not Be Related After All] Epic 4G Touch Experiencing Loss Of Service Bug On Some Devices

Update: After receiving a distraught email from Team ACS, it has been brought to our attention that their root method may not be the cause of signal loss on the Epic 4G Touch. We're currently researching the details and will update this post accordingly.

Update x2: According to new information we received, there have been reports of this same issue happening on non-rooted phones. We're not sure how things got twisted around to point the finger at rooted devices, but we do know that Sprint is looking into it.

Download: Android 2.3.7 (GWK74) With Google Wallet For The Nexus S 4G

WARNING: This file is only for the Sprint Nexus S 4G. To flash the update, the phone must be stock - that means no custom ROMs. Rooted handsets are OK, though this might reset root permissions (you just need to re-root). We've included a link to a full, flashable ROM which will probably require a wipe, as well.

If you find yourself still without the Android 2.3.7 (GWK74) update for your Sprint Nexus S 4G, have no fear - we're here to help.

Dear Verizon: Your 4G Phones Have Data Connectivity Problems, And It’s Really Pissing Everyone Off

When I switched from AT&T from Verizon and swapped my aging, battered, and bruised Nexus One for a DROID BIONIC, the possibility of buyer’s remorse was not on my mind. I was coming from AT&T - America’s single least reliable network in terms of dropped calls. So, I thought the last thing I’d end up doing was wishing I was back there. And now, at least part of me does.

If you own a Verizon 4G LTE handset, you’ve probably experienced an issue exactly or approximately like this one: You put your phone in your pocket or let it sit overnight, take it out some time later or the next morning, and there’s no data connection.

Sprint's Epic 4G Touch Experiencing A Few Minor Bugs, Samsung Is Currently Working On A Fix

Looks like the just-released Samsung Epic 4G Touch is dealing with a few new-device hiccups. Both issues are relatively minor, but are noticeable (and annoying) nonetheless.

For starters, the calendar app may (or may not) force close when multiple events are dismissed at the same time. Secondly, if you're using 4G hotspot and take a phone call, it will kill the 4G connection. Of course, you can easily just re-enable the service at the end of the phone conversation, so it's only a minor inconvenience.

AT&T Galaxy S II Kernel Source Code Released On Samsung's Open Source Release Center

Android Boot Times Compared: Epic 4G Touch Vs EVO 3D Vs EVO 4G Vs Thunderbolt. Psst, HTC, This Is Just Embarrassing

Last night, I sent out a message from our social accounts praising the Epic 4G Touch's boot times. They amazed me as soon as I turned this Galaxy S II Sprint variant for the first time last Friday and haven't ceased to amaze me ever since. I have loaded up all the same apps and then some compared to any of my other phones, and still - the Epic 4G Touch blazes by the competition like no other device I've seen.
