Leo here, in Austin, TX, where we have phenomenal 4G service from Sprint. I installed the new update last night, and updated the profile and prl. Now my 3G speed has DROPPED to barely 100 kbps. Many areas I use my phone in cannot get 4G, so needless to say, I am greatly disappointed.
My Wireless speeds and 4G seem to be same as before. I have not noticed any improvement in battery life, yet. But, it's only been one day.
Hello Jetsmom00, make you you have no task killers or security software running, if you sent me a private message I can look over your network profile to see if it's a problem on our side.
I downloaded the update on the 12th, and have noticed no problems. most recent news for ICS is from HTC UK's Facebook, where they listed models that they intend to update to ICS this quarter or next.
I tried that and that is when it gives me the error message..... Is there another way around it? (to physicsguru ). N thanks for.responding I am new to the smart phone.world ... Lol
Jetsmom00, If you are getting a 1012 error code, that means your 3G credentials are outdated. You can update this on your EVO by starting on the Home screen and tapping menu > Settings > System updates > Update profile. Your evo will give a message, "The network is preparing your services..." Let that do it's thing and your Evo should be up and running after you see the message, "The update is complete and changes will now be applied." Tap OK and check for the 2.17 update again.
@mac-thien Same thing happened to my brother's. I have slow 3g speeds as well. Called CS, rep explained I should get anywhere between 60 kbps to 120 kbps then I had to correct her about EVDO Rev. A and performance speeds that were supposed to be between 1 and 3 mbps. Then I got connected to a supervisor, who said the problem should be resolved within 24 hours and she sent me an airrave free of charge because of signal jumping as I move thorugh my house. I know Sprint assures between 600 and 1400 kbps for 3G but I'm not even getting half that. The same applies for the other two evo 3Ds on my account and it wasn't the tower. I went to a local Sprint store and still got the same results but I tried the same thing on their phones. I got 1200 kbps on their Evo 3D and the same on the Design 4G, I saw the update avaialable for the 3D so it was running 651.3 and it stll had fast 3G.
If camera sound bugs you its gonna have to be done via rooting, it is the only way until a dev can make an app for the market because even on silent the camera still has sound unlike the Iphone when you flip the vibrate switch it is completely silent.
i recently updated my phone. the only thing i noticed that was different was my shutter sound turned back on. i had this phone since it came out and immediately turned off the sound. the previous updates didn't allow the sound to be toggled again, but since i had already turned it off, it was kept off. really disappointed they automatically turned the shutter sound back on.
Much smoother display, much better battery life, less text msg crashes. I guess Carrier IQ was really sucking up that many resources?
