Additional features include the addition of an HTC File Manager which allows you to manipulate files between the Phone Storage and SD Card. Programs like ES File Manager still won;t work at this time, but at least we got something.

Looking for other things.

Re: Update to Android 4.4.3 and other changes

I received the update on my HTC One M8 and I am now unable to connect to LTE.

I have completed three Profile Updates, three PRL Updates, and three restarts to no avail. Mobile network set to either Automatic or LTE/CDMA.

Does anyone else have the same issue?

WhyPayRent,

Whoa! This doesn't sound good. Allow me to make this right. Sprint's main priority is to provide all of our customers with a great experience, while on the Sprint network. I want to determine if this is a device or a network issue. Please provide two cross streets and the zip code where you're experiencing this. Have you tried setting the device settings to CDMA only? I look forward to hearing from you.

Re: Update to Android 4.4.3 and other changes

Thanks for the response. I am at: 525 Washington Blvd, Jersey City, NJ 07310.

Cross streets are Holland Tunnel and Washington Blvd.

I normally have great LTE connection 10 Mbps and up.

I tried CDMA only. I am able to connect through 3g currently at .84mbps. It is only LTE that is the issue.

Based on another thread I also dialed ##72786# to 'refresh' the device and still have the same issue.

Thanks again for the help.

WhyPayRent,

A couple of cell-towers in the area(s) you've provided is under maintenance. One near Mall Drive West in Jersey City and another near, Land Vent Building. To get a better understanding what's taking place, we're doing a complete rip and replacement of our network. Sprint has installed new network equipment and software that brings multiple spectrum bands, and airwaves, on a single Multimode base station together. I would recommend leaving the phone's setting set to CDMA only,for the next 72 hours. I understand, waiting can become frustrating, but I'm confident once upgrades are completed you'll be satisfied. You should be able to utilize the service during upgrades. Updating the phone periodically will allow the device to work to its full potential.

Re: Update to Android 4.4.3 and other changes

How come the addition of 'File Manager" isn't in the change log? I have a ton of apps and am almost never in the app drawer unless I'm installing something and would have never known about this addition without reading it here. Thanks
