Sprint’s Samsung Replenish is an Android-powered smartphone announced back in April. It’s partially built with recycled plastics and recyclable packaging, so it’s the perfect device for those into that kind of thing. Of course you may not have bought it for its environmental street cred, but for its candybar form factor that features both a touchscreen as well as a full physical QWERTY keyboard.
Whatever your reasons for purchasing a Samsung Replenish were, you should know that a software update is headed your way. Unfortunately it isn’t going to make your Replenish run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, you’ll still have to do some waiting for that.
It’s a maintenance update that’s version EF27. It will bring LED enhancements, a roaming alert prior to roaming activation, and a fix for the issue of the ##RTN# attribute resetting to all zeros (a bug that was introduced in the prior software version, ED23).
That’s Sprint’s entire list of new things, but the update probably includes unspecified bug fixes as well, so, as always, it may be a good idea to apply it as soon as you get it.
Speaking of which, this update should start rolling out on July 18, so in just a few days. Since it’s going to come over the air, your phone will notify you that there’s an update available and you go from there. After applying it, to verify that you have version EF27 installed, go to Settings > About phone and check your Baseband version and Build number.
