Has anyone upgraded their handset to this newer operating system? Sunday (11/8) I checked for an update and the OTA update app said this was ready so I let it update. It has fixed several issues I was having. Nothing on the Sprint website about it, it still says 188.8.131.52 is the current version.
Here is what it has done for me:
The ability to ignore incoming "My Information". No more pesky little icon after a DC call or entry in the message log.
Greatly improved the handset volume level - I can hear my phone now and so far (really too soon to tell) no echo noted.
Greatly improved the DC call volume level when using a bluetooth. Still no call alert or incoming DC beep through the BT, but at least I can hear people now.
Access to SMS settings (maybe something else is coming soon?)
I can see the menus when using Opera Mini and Bolt Browser while in a stock theme
The phone seems to operate a little faster.
As with most things, YMMV. Seems like the above improvements would have attracted a little bit of attention.
When I have a voicemail I get the standard VM indication, and also an SMS message showing the number of VM messages and how many of them are urgent. When OS 5.0 comes, I bet it will be something special. I just wish that ringtones & incoming DC tones would play through the BT instead of the phone speaker, or the option to choose like on every other NEXTEL I have ever had. Seems like there were some posts here and on some of the other boards about the no ringer from the phone w/BT so I guess that would make some floks happy.
Better coverage at my house would be great too, but that's a whole nother story.
