Hey, really just more curious, why are they removing the Sprint mobile wallet app?  Just curious, as i really don`t use that `un anyway, but it`s intresting that they`re removing it (in fact i`d hoped they would remove it...more space for apps i really WANT to use ).  TK241

Hello there, I've tried getting the latest update a couple times now and I keep getting the device is up to date message. I really hope this newest update gets the phone to where it use to be before the previous update.

I`m getting that message too.  Methinks they just haven`t gotten the update completely rolled out yet, give it a few more days and see what crops up.  If ya still get the device is up to date status message after that then i`d start to wonder.  For now though, i`d wait a bit longer, just to see if it happens.  No sense in worrying about it just yet .  I too hope this update will fix some issues, mainly the battery drain issue, some instability in the wifi connection and some other naggy things too.  It`s nice to see that Sprint is trying to keep this unit going and up to date.  TK241

My Sprint Mobile Wallet did not uninstall after update and now i continue to get a WiFI error.  I also have to constantly update PRL and Profile to get service.  Thanks for the update Sprint!!!!!  Im so tired of this phone.  I love the QWERTY keyboard but the battery life and the other problems is making me want a new phone.  The Photon Q looks nice but I'm scared off from the Admiral experience.

Hey there, i`ve noticed that Sprint Moblie wallet didn`t uninstall on my admeral ether, however i don`t get the WiFi error ya mentioned, might be an issue with your access port possibly.  Anyway, the fact that Mobile wallet didn`t go away is intresting even though i never used that app, having it gone wouldda been nice, more space for apps i`ll really use .  Methinks now there`ll ba yet ANOTHER update just to do the removal of Sprint mobile wallet, guess we`ll have to see on that `un.  TK241

Heck, mine gets half way through installing and then a big yellow triangle with exclamation point pops up and the phone reboots.  Then it says update failed to install.  Have tried 5 times.  Sure hope I aint missing nothing spectacular with this update because it doesnt like my phone at all.

Well, except for wi-fi, my admiral seems to be working better after this latest update. For example, before the update the phone would sometimes take over a minute to dial a number after pressing the send button. Battery life seems to be better also. W-fi seems to be worse than before this update.

Well, my wi-fi is pretty much useless after this update. On the plus side, my battery life is much better.

Is your phone rooted? If so the installation will fail every time, this goes for almost every Android device. The update's perform a security check before installation to ensure file system integrity. Rooting your device opens it up a security breach (the intention of rooting in teh first place) so it will fail this integrity check and the update will abort.

Same problem here :/. Have version PAX-69 and says device is up to date when I try to download. Maybe they plug pulled on this update for problems or something.  Anyone???
