Version                  Date released         Description of enhancements/fixes


S: D700.05S. DI18       9/30/2010                Wi-Fi standby battery drain - device not going into sleep mode

                                                                    Amazon MP3 not downloading in 4G

                                                                    Large email lag in upload speeds

                                                                    Code to enable faster 3G upload speeds


The Service and Repair centers can update your phone from DI07 to DI18.  Your device must be on the prior release (DI07) to be

updated.  If your device is on  DG17 or DG27, the S&R centers cannot update your phone.  The next  maintenance release will be

provided as a download (in addition to OTA)  so those who are on the older releases can get their devices updated to  the most c

urrent software.  I do not have a date for this next  maintenance release, but expect it to be available in November.

Important Notes:

- These updates take approximately 7-8 minutes to install and 7-8 minutes to download

- These updates are available OTA  (over the air) only and are 'pushed' to devices in stages.  Not everyone will receive it on day-one.

- Your device must be on the most current software version to receive the update (for example, only devices on DI07 can receive DI18 update)

-  If  you do not receive the update, download or update an application from  the Android Market.  This has been known to trigger the update.

  Otherwise, a Sprint Service & Repair center should be able to update your device.

Update your software:

The software will be automatically downloaded to your phone:

  1. A System update screen will prompt the user to 'Install now' or 'Install later'

         If 'Install later' is selected, a reminder will be sent once or twice a day to install the update

         If 'Install now' is selected, the phone will power off and back on to complete the software update


Check for updates:

  1. Go to the Home screen
  2. Tap Menu > Settings > About phone > System updates > Update Android
  3. Your  phone will automatically download and install any available updates;  you may need to power your phone off and

        back on to complete the  software upgrade
