    Question Whats the difference between epic 4G and S2

    I always thought they were the same since I purchased the phone. The label said touch epic 4g but the phone itself says Galaxy S2?... Interesting but whatever, I figured its the same phone and was excited to start playing with it. It wasnt long before I was taken back with the several applications that asked me to specify between the two?

    Now, if you Google "SPH-D710", it seems they are all classified as one (ie samsung touch epic 4g Galaxy S3). I have read that the rooting process is different, there is a different screen and one uses cdma/wimax radios instead of gsm.

    How embarrassing is it that I really dont know what phone I have. How can I tell?

    Welcome to the forum! As with the original Galaxy S series, there are many variants of the Galaxy S2. Sprint's version is called the Epic 4G Touch. It is a CDMA/WiMax phone, which must be rooted differently from its GSM cousins. However you choose to hack your phone (custom ROMs, kernels, etc), you need to make sure that what you use is specific to your phone model (SPH-D710). Otherwise, you *could* end up with a very nice expensive paperweight.
