Froyo Pulled from Samsung Epic 4G Due to Connectivity and SD Card Issues

Samsung Epic 4GFroyo, or Android 2.2, is the hot topic around the mobile phone world right now and everybody is wondering whether or not their phone is getting it. While a ton of phones are getting it, there is one that just pulled the update due to a few problems. That's right, if you have the Samsung Epic 4G from Sprint and are waiting for your upgrade, then keep waiting.

Samsung handset owners have been swimming in the bad news this week while awaiting their updates. Just a mere three days after the hotly anticipated Android 2.2 (Froyo) update began making its way onto Epic 4G phones, the code has been pulled from the update servers. Sprint is working on finding the root cause for several annoying problems after a rash of support calls.

According to a moderator's forum post, "The issues being reported are related to data connectivity following the upgrade and SD card issues when attempting to access photos, music, etc... If you are experiencing these issues, a hard reset has been reported to resolve the problems."

A hard reset doesn't sound too friendly and there is currently no word on who or what is causing these problems. There is also no word on when exactly the update will be ready for download again. Needless to say, this has not been a good week for Samsung and Samsung smartphone customers.
