Re: 2.3 official upgrade date for htc evo

Hi!

Sprint and HTC have not announced any plans yet for an upgrade to Android 2.3 for the HTC Evo.

Word on the street is that it's not going to happen.

Re: 2.3 official upgrade date for htc evo

I called HTC about HTC Sync not working with Office 2010, and asked about a "fix" for the last maintenance release on the Evo. I didn't update my device thank goodness since I saw all of the problems reported in the forums, but I still wanted to know about a fix and the posible improvements that might go along with it.

The rep told me that he did not have an answer on the syncing issue with Office 2010, but that Gingerbread would be coming to the Evo. I can only imagine that this would be because of the problems with the last maintenance release, or possibly even that HTC will be upgrading all of their Android devices - but this is purely speculation on my part.

Hope this helps.

It would be a safe bet that 2.3 Gingerbread won't be coming to the EVO. The EVO will most likely be deemed obsolete about 06/11 one year after it was introduced. In true Sprint form, they will probably be rolling out a new Android phone that will have Gingerbread on it and customers will want the latest and greatest phone, and they get you to sign up for a new 2-year contract.

Today I received a call from HTC. I contacted them a couple days ago and I did a survey where I put everything the lowest score.

They asked me why it scored so bad and I told them that the EVO has alot of issues, battery doesn't last long, reboots by itself, etc.

I asked her (twice) about the 2.3 gingerbread upgrade, she confirmed that the EVO will get it and it will fix all the problems.

I'll believe this when I see it. If and when the update does come to the EVO, you can bet that it will be many months after any new phones may be introduced that already have 2.3 Gingerbread on it.

Sprint has not done anything that has been in the interest of their customers. It is not in their best interest to update current phones. They make out better by selling new phones and new contracts.

So that's why the HTC EVO was the first released phone to be updated from Android 2.1 to 2.2?

Re: 2.3 official upgrade date for htc evo

I had spoke with an HTC rep last night and he stated 2nd quarter of 2011  for the update to 2.3, so that would mean April, May, or June sometime.

The only reason that the EVO was updated with 2.2 was so Sprint and HTC can sell more phones. We'll just have to wait and see how long Sprint and HTC continues to offer support for the EVO.

What has Sprint done to address the many issues created by Maintenance Release 3.70.651.1? For me, just one of the many issues created with this update was the loss of 4G service at my home location. Prior to the update I had 4G service, but now I no longer do but I must continue to pay Sprint the $10/month Premium Data Fee. Just read that thread on this website and you will see many customers not happy with that update!

If the EVO is updated with 2.3, how much bloatware will Sprint add to the update? And please don't respond that any added bloatware comes from HTC. I have already contacted HTC in the past and they have stated that they are under contract with Sprint to add anything that Sprint requests to be added.

Can you please explain why Sprint has decided to change the terms and conditions of the Premier Program rather than grandfather in current customers and make the changes apply only to new customers? While in the middle of the contract for a lot of Sprint customers, when the early upgrade was very much a part of their original contract, and Sprint doesn't consider this a breach of contract?
