Sprint and Samsung released a small software update for the Epic 4G, fixing the force close error when receiving a call and adding what is called the “Sprint Connections Optimizer.” According to the Now Network, software version S:D700.0.5S.FC09 will be released in stages with 100% of devices having received the update within approximately 6 weeks.
It’s far from Ice Cream Sandwich users crave for, but still worth updating to make things run even smoother. And if you want the latest version of Android badly, you’ll have to search through hacking forums and find the unofficial way to make the Epic 4G run ICS. Good luck if you decide to take that route. 😉
