i called samsung and they admitted its a known error, but want me to ship my phone to try to fix it, and be without my phone for at least 2 weeks....

screw that...

ill try to find another third party dealer that may order me one

You should go back to the third party store and tell them to look into the error in the Sprint system, as long as they are an approved Sprint facility. The error is in there, there's a drop down menu that tells them its a no charge replacement. They don't have to open the phone and they're not allowed to open the phones within 90 days of launch anyways. You should try to get to the manager of that store, sounds like you got to someone that didn't want to actually log into the computer.

Do you have any Samsung experience shops in Best Buys near you? They'll do the swap apparently too.

awesome man...i just called and spoke with manager who just asked for my phone # and ordered me a replacement without even having to go back in the store!

the line of "Sprint corp tech support said as long as they are an approved sprint facility, the error is in the computer, and there's a drop down menu that tells them its a 'no charge replacement'"



they should call me within a few days to swap it out, now im just hoping it isn't a refurb

EDIT: Just called back to ask if its going to be a refurb or a new one and manager said that they haven't seen a single refurb yet for the s5 replacements

I didn't know this was an issue. I've gotten the camera failed message a few times. The signal on this S5 is horrible compared to how my S4 was before it was killed. Always dropping signal and calls.
