Samsung EPIC 4G :: Keyboard Unlock Screen

Aug 18, 2010

Does anyone know if it's possible to unlock the screen by simply sliding the keyboard open? My Moment does that and it's annoying as I end up pocket dialing people or opening up programs because the keyboard slide on it gets jarred and unlocks the screen.This will be a deal breaker for me between the Epic 4G and EVO.

Sep 1, 2010

Does anybody know if it's possible to slide open the keyboard, but keep the screen locked? I couldn't find any settings connected to this, but even when the keyboard would slide (just a little), the phone would automatically turn on and unlock. I want to prevent that from happening.

Samsung Epic 4G :: Epic Hardware Keyboard Input?

Sep 7, 2010

I currently have an issue with the epic. its not the battery issue or gps but the keyboard input. Sometimes at sporadic times (not every time)when I type a random letter or character I have to press a button two times to replicate the character or space and I'm a fast keyboard typer and its been bothering me lately and I'm wondering if anyone else has those issues? I already have went to sprint and had them exchanged the phone and the new phone still to no avail does the same thing. I thought it was Advanced task killer that may have caused my phone to be acting weird but I hard reset the phone and still no avail. Maybe its just a bad keyboard? both times? the phone is an august build and battery is also an august build. I'm at work right now and plan to hit the sprint repair store near home. I just want to know if anyone else has this issue? So I dont want to look like an idiot to the tech.

Samsung Epic 4G :: How To Unlock Phone

Nov 8, 2010

I fully understand that this is a CDMA phone and unlocking a CDMA phone is not quite as easy as GSM phones, since Sprint will never hand over the unlock code under any circumstances. However I really wanted to use this phone with Virgin Mobile with their *Beyond the Talk plan, has anyone successfully unlocked a Splint Epic 4G?

Samsung EPIC 4G :: Unlock Phone With Volume / Camera Keys?

Oct 9, 2010

Not crazy about the placement of the power button. Is there a way to remap the volume or camera buttons to wake the phone? And yes, I've seen the "No lock" thread, but I still want the phone to be somewhat difficult to accidentally unlock. What would be perfect would be a double click of one of the other buttons to waken and unlock the phone. Is this possible? Maybe it's a root thing?

Samsung Epic 4G :: Epic Turns Off When Screen Is Closed

Oct 21, 2010

Sometimes when I shut the slider quickly the phone shuts down. Then today it did it when I set it down on a table, and when I turned it back on the battery went from 42 to 12 percent. I then reset the phone and it was at 24 percent. Is anyone else having this problem? Could the battery just be losing contact?

Samsung EPIC 4G :: Phone's Keyboard Have A Tab Key?

Jul 21, 2010

I've tried looking at the videos and pics, but I am unable to see if there is a Tab key. The Tab key is very nice for completing online forms and logins. The original Touch Pro had this key, but they ditched it on the 2nd version.

Anyone know about this yet? Or does Android have another way for tabbing?

Samsung Epic 4G :: Scroll Without Using The Slideout Keyboard?

Nov 15, 2010

I cant find a way to scroll up and down without pulling out the slide out keyboard.

Is there a way I can scroll in portrait mode (e.g. in apps like Gtalk, sms etc.) without pulling out the keyboard and using the arrow keys.

I miss this feature sorely from my HTC Incredible which had a dedicated scroll pad or My Sprint Hero which also had a trackball.

Samsung Epic 4G :: Keyboard Getting Looser / Solve This?

Sep 11, 2010

I know this has been mentioned a hundred times...but...anyone else seeing the keyboard getting looser and looser? even when the phone is closed the top screen part seems to wiggle up and down and seems to be getting a bit looser then when I first had it...If you gently try to lift the top screen upwards away from the keyboard (while in closed position, the top screen moves away from the keyboard for me by about a 1/16th of an inch.

I know it sounds paranoid and I may just be being OCD, but is anyone else having this problem?

And before you say it I know slider keyboards often have this problem. I've had sliders before...I just don't recall if any of them got this loose this quick

I'd like to remap some of the keys on the PHYSICAL keyboard. For example, I've never inserted a smiley in a message and don't intend to start now, so remaping the dedicated smiley key to something useful would be productive.

Samsung Epic 4G :: Screen Occasionally Flashes To The Home Screen When Running An App

Sep 12, 2010

I've had my Epic for about a week and have noticed that from time to time that the screen flashes VERY briefly to the home screen/lock screen when inside an app.

It happens when I'm in the browser, email app, etc. There does not seem to be any rhyme or reason behind it.

Samsung Captivate :: Screen Dim Before / After Lock And Unlock

Oct 29, 2010

Noticed today that when the phone is unlocked with the power/unlock button, that the screen starts off at a significantly lower brightness, but the light sensor seems to then kick in and the correct brightness is then displayed after. This happens for only a fraction of a second, but is quite jerky and immediate.Is this normal, or should the screen brightness remain one constant level from unlock? Of course, changing when it should based on lighting conditions.The same also happens when the screen is about to sleep. Once the lock button is pushed, the screen brightness almost notches down in 2 steps. First at half the brightness, or so, and then off completely. Again, not necessarily smooth, but quite jarring.Again, is this normal of other Captivates?
