I received a software update after 4.3


Yesterday I got a notificaton on my phone that there was a software update ready to be installed, I just upgraded my software to 4.3 Jelly Bean like two weeks ago....anyone know what the lastest update was for, I dont see any changes and I still have 4.3...

Also does anyone know when a fix will be provided for the app folder staying open on the home screen?

I also did an update. The only different thing I noticed is I can now see emojis and there's now autocorrect. Other than that, I don't know..

It's the Mk2 Update. Sprint send out this update to fix the sleep and battery on the phone

Well I've noticed that my phone doesnt roam anymore which is very frustrating, I cant use my phone at home anymore.

I had the same problem but was able to fix it.  You may have to do it several times before it "sticks".  Go into the roaming settings - Settings>Connections>More Networks>Roaming>Roaming network and change it from Home only to Automatic.  You'll have to go in and check it periodically to make sure it doesn't get turned off again.  I had to do this several times with some restarts thrown in for good luck before it finally "stuck".  I would like to think this was accidental on Sprint's part to COMPLETELY disable roaming by default, but who knows.  And to have to change it multiple times to get roaming to stay on.  Kinda fishy if you ask me...  Then again, it's Sprint - it could be simple incompetence.

I received the system software update this morning, I assume it was the MK2, since that is the version now displayed, and it broke my ability to turn on wi-fi. The security software now intercepts attempts to turn on wi-fi as an illegal action and kills it.

DericksGirl,

Thanks for reaching out to us. We're not sure what model phone you are using, but if it's a Samsung Galaxy S4, another software update (MK2) was pushed out to resolve issues with the sleep mode.

Please let us know if that is not the model phone that you have and if not please let us know what model phone you have and we'll advise you of what software updates have been released?
