phone not charging

Over the last month my phone has started charging very slowly.....it will take 10-12 hours to get a full charge, and yesterday while i was traveling in the car, the car charger was plugged in and the charging icon was "running" showing it was charging but the red indicator light would not turn on and I never increased in battery life. I have had this phone since October, so will probably try to warranty it out, but was just wondering if anyone else has had similar issues?

GPS location issue

I put my location on.....set phone to track location via wireless network to make it more accurate......and wouldnt you know it......whenever I ise the telenav gps, it detects the location I was at hours ago and takes a while to find where I am actually at after a while
Tracking location via GPS is more accurate than via Wireless Network.

I keep seeing these gorgeous pictures online about the white phone, has anyone seen or heard something reputable about when it will hit the US market. It's in the UK and Canada right now.

Inaccurate Review...

The phone uses a 1.2ghz dual core processor, not 1.0ghz like the reviewer states.

Also, many of the Sprint apps CAN be uninstalled. Sprint has listened to the customers complaining about unneeded bloatware and they have provided the option to be able to uninstall many of the apps that are included in the phone.

Also, there is no way this phone can be called heavy when at 4.60 oz is is much lighter than many other smartphones on the market.... perhaps lighter than 70 percent of the smartphones on the market. ie. Iphone 4, Evo 3D, Photon, Droid Bionic, etc.
The app *data* can be removed, but the bloatware icon in the menu cannot be removed. As far as I am concerned, if I still have to stare at the icon in my app tray, the app is still there.

The phone feels heavy to me. I understand that is a subject...

How much do you get paid to review phones? Nothing! Exactly
The LG Marquee is less than four ounces, so yes, compared to the lighter phones on the market, this feels heavier, because it is heavier.

just bought the galaxy2 from sprint

Well, here is my scoop. I have never had an android and i refuse to promote or buy an iphone like the masses.

i have had sprint forever and i enjoyed the lower price i get. now sprint has cracked down on the discounts, it no longer is cheaper.

so i decided to either keep the plan and upgrade or just cancel my cell phone service and call it a day.

...so i now own a new samsung galaxy s2 epic 4G cell phone. since this is my first android experience i thought i would just get the best available from sprint. i personally hate large phones. it reminds of the old brick phones back in the 80's and 90's.

its not too heavy cause its replacing the LG rumor touch. the Rumor is heavy for its size so it kinda made this new phone feel l...

heavy???

You really think so? Played with one this morning & it feels like its a feather compared to my EVOs I've had.
I don't have an EVO on hand. It is a brick compared to other Galaxy S II phones, though.

Signal quality

Signal & phone call quality is my priority. How does this phone compare to the Motorola Photon 4g, which you said was the best 3g phone you've ever tested on Sprint's network?

usb host....

will this be able for someone to somehow develop a way to run usb cd players for different purposes, like maybe someone creating an app that could load .exe files, or stuff like that...

would love to play starcraft on my phone Cool
Loading EXE files? In other words, running Windows virtually on your Android phone? While I'm sure it's possible for someone to create a Virtual PC kind of product for a powerful enough Android phone, I doubt it would be fast enough to be useful, and ...
