Voicemail notification

  • New discussion thread for this topic: http://community.sprint.com/baw/message/296126#296126
  • Root cause has been identified for the VVM notification issue and a short term solution began rolling out the morning of 6/9.  The rollout is occurring in batches with the first devices upgraded to Android 2.3 receiving the short term solution first.  This fix is network based and does not require customer or device interaction. 
  • Sprint is currently working on an updated version of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread software which will include a permanent solution for the VVM notification.  The short term solution will continue to be deployed until this new Android 2.3 upgrade is available. 
  • You may continue to use Settings/Call/Clear Notifications until the short term solution has been rolled out.

ALynch40,

Just stating my opinion based on working all the device updates for the last year.  Most of the complaints you have are discussed/answered in this thread multiple times, so I will not address them again here or with a link to any other Sprint page.

You can check out the Ratings & Reviews to see what people think of the device. It's highly rated.

Yes I saw the rating BUT I have a hard time trusting that especially since I can't talk to them directly.

Thanks for the guidance though

I've just read through every message in this thread and I have to say this looks to be one of the smoothest updates I've seen.  Is there something in particular that's keeping you from applying the upgrade?

If this was smooth I would hate to see a bad one!! How can you say smooth when the update broke apps, WIFI, OS missing many features, constant errors and reboots or being stuck on the loading screen.

Put whatever spin on it you like but if you look at this forum, XDA, HTC forum and HTC Facebook there are thousands of unhappy customers over this update for one or more reasons mentioned here plus a large number I didn't mention.

But if you like I can go through the sites and compile a list of issues IF you can get them fixed in a timely manner and fixed right.

Now is where a Sprint staff member will copy\paste a link to some useless page on Sprints site as usual.

ALynch40,

I just looked over your complaint list again and I have to say that there is nothing there of substance.  The only legit complaint on the list could be the keyboard, but you can easily get that on the internet and install it without root.  The camera update you want is not needed because HTC's version already supports dual cameras and stuff.  You complained about the EQ in music player but the Android 2.3 highlight link I provided states that there is an API in place so that developers can build and utilize an EQ in their own players.  How you took that as their is an EQ player built in to Android 2.3 is beyond me.   You asked for various effects, but what exactly does that mean?  That is a very generic comment.  You also mentioned wider App2SD.  Again what does that mean?  Either the application you want has the feature or it does not. 

Again, I see nothing of value in your complaint list and honestly at this point I think you are just here trolling.

Anyone know a app that can capture a pic of my screen so I can possibly post it? It's a little to smurf like for my taste lol

Try 'screen shot it' or shootme.  Android 2.3.3 includes the ability to do this without rooting the phone, but not sure if the apps are compatible yet.
