Re: 6/28 - New HTC EVO 4G Software Version 1.47.651.1

It seems as though I'm NOT getting the update here in Dallas, TX. I've been waiting and nothing, I've done a factory reset, nothing. I haven't seen it at all.


I have NOT rooted it.

Not to make lite of your dilemma but you may not get a notification.

Have you gone to:

"settings/system updates/HTC software update"?

I upgraded to this new software version 1.47.651.1 when notified - and it downloaded and updated the phone without any issues or problems. I did have a minor "gotcha" with the wifi afterwards - but in the wifi setup, I "forgot" my wifi setup and then re-configured it.  Now, it works like a champ - and I do seem to get more wifi "bars" than I did before the upgrade.

So, at this point, I'm fairly satisfied with this phone and with this last upgrade process - I am a little saddened to hear that the new Android version 2.2 (and newer Sense) won't be available for the EVO until later this year - but hey, I'm still learning how to use what I have already.

"Brick your phone" basically means rendering the phone useless for anything but a paperweight.

(Update from previous post)

Went to the service center yesterday, they did a reset to factory. That worked great for about ten min, so they ordered me a new one and I should have it friday. My current EVO is part of the initial run, I bought it on June 4th and it has been an excellent device ...... untill that update. Hopefully it is just and isolated issue (so far only chaosdemon06 has reported a similar issue) and my new EVO will be just as great as my original. Fingers crossed.

You can add me to the long list, if there is a list, of people having problems after the update.  My phone is 3 weeks old and they want to send me a refurbished one!! Really?? WTF!  They Sprint demands I go to the store and get a new one, alright fine excpet they are out and wont have any for a while on top of the 30 person (small town) waiting list!!!!!!!  If my phone isn't fixed I will get my money back and will switch to T-Mobile and get a phone that actually works after an update!!!!

Bunk is correct. You can initiate the update from your phone as he noted. The over  the air software push rolls out to markets in sequence, not  simultaneously so the network will experience consistent traffic and not  spike too high.

My EVO now randomly disconnects from WiFi signals after the update.  Even with the WiFi on, I have to manually toggle the WiFi off and on, or manually connect to a signal almost every time now.

Is this happening for anyone else?

Re: 6/28 - New HTC EVO 4G Software Version 1.47.651.1

is it just me, or does this evo not vibrate upon receiving text?

like every phone,when it receives a text message, it vibrates and rings, or what ever order anyone else puts it, but after i got the evo, it only does the notification sounds but it dont vibrate.

receiving a call vibrates like any normal phone, in which i have it on vibrate and ring, but text messages only rings,even tho i toggled the vibrate option on

even when i put the phone on vibrate all, it still does no vibrate.

anyone else has this problem?   i hope its not one of the side effects of the update

Have any of you having these minor issues considered backing up and then resetting to factory defaults?
