Software update for the Samsung Epic 4G Touch rolls out correcting signal loss issues

Software update for the Samsung Epic 4G Touch rolls out correcting signal loss issues
Right on cue, that anticipated software update for the Sprint Samsung Epic 4G Touch is starting to roll out in droves to handset owners as we speak – bringing along some much needed bug fixes, but most importantly, corrects as issue relating to signal loss.

Late last month, we reported that Samsung has been testing out a patch for the handset, but after a tiny bit of wait, it’s being sent out as an over-the-air update right now. Although it’s not a major one, it’s enough to be deemed as a very important one, especially for those owners affected by signal loss issues plaguing some handsets.

Bringing its software to version D710.0.5S.EK02, the very first issue corrected with it is the loss of signal, which caused people to reboot the smartphone to get the radio up and running again. Secondly, the update also disconnects the 4G mobile hotspot functionality when you’re on a phone call. Yes, there isn’t a whole a lot going on with the update in terms of new features, but nonetheless, it should appease a wide array of people in the near term.

Of course, if you haven’t received that nifty notification regarding the update’s availability, you can obviously always manually check for yourself. If you managed to install it already, have you been experiencing any noticeable improvements?
