Sprint’s HTC Evo 4G gets a minor update too
What, you thought that the Motorola Photon 4G was the only smartphone getting some software update love from Sprint? Wrong. The Now Network has something cooked and ready to serve for the HTC Evo 4G as well.
Again, like in the case of the Photon 4G, this is a small update, although it isn’t unimportant. It won’t change which Android version your phone runs, but it does bring several small enhancements.
The update improves the voice recognition accuracy, and fixes an image size issue with transferring contacts over Bluetooth, images being cut off in Picasa, group contacts not showing up in alphabetical order, out of memory errors and ‘Unable to send SMS’ issues.
So if you’ve been affected by any of the above listed bugs, you’ll be very happy to know that a fix is on the way. The update will come over-the-air, with a staggered rollout that means that it will take about one or two weeks for all Evo 4Gs to get updated. If you haven’t yet been notified about the existence of the update, you can make your handset manually check by going to Settings > About Phone. However, manually checking won’t force the update, so if it hasn’t reached your device yet, you’ll have to try again. After applying this update, your Evo 4G should be running software version 4.53.651.1.
You can still purchase the HTC EVO 4G on Amazon.
