    HTC Evo Getting Minor Software Update Next Week?

    "A Sprint source has leaked to BGR that the HTC Evo will mostly likely be getting a software update on June 28th. The update would bring improved Wi-Fi (802.11n, we're guessing), fix Exchange issues and repair a battery-draining problem with the official Facebook app. Why Sprint continues to have their Nascar app run in the background of all Evos at all times, we still don't know."

    First, I do realize EVO is Sprint, however, HTC is releasing the update. The Incredible has been out longer and we've been aware of "issues" from the beginning. I sure wish theyd have taken care of the Incred problems before taking care of problems with a phone that was released after the Incredible.

    Sure maybe the hold up is Verizon and not HTC but who knows. Its still irritating to see something like this and still have no idea when we are getting are software patch/update.

    To be fair, the article mentions nothing about the Inc either way. In this case, the person who got the info was purely interested in the Evo, and had no reason to ask about the Inc. People here have been asking, and received acknowledgements that HTC is working on a fix, so i wouldn't worry too much.

    This is Sprint-independent, so it doesn't hold any weight for us, good or bad.

    We got the "Exchange update" over a month ago. I don't know when you got your phone, but my guess is you got your phone shipped with the update already installed if you got in June.

    Okay. I didnt mean to sound like a whiner. My initial reaction was just irritation that any sort of patch update coming out for a phone that was released after ours. I shouldve taken into account other things.

    I'm just happy to see HTC actually supporting a phone in a timely manner. I stopped watching dates. When it comes, it comes

    Verizon was always way WAY behind on their WebOS updates, sprint always had them weeks or months ahead. If any incredible updates are being held, its likely Verizons doing.

    But the Evo is also HTC's flagship phone at the moment, so i'd expect them to want to remove as much bad press as possible in a timely manner.

    They need to take advantage while the almighty iPhone is not working properly. It's obvious this is the biggest competitor to that phone. The incredible is nolonger new so updates will probably be slower.

    Battery drain with the facebook app? Is this an issue, I have not noticed or heard of it in the forums.

    A wifi fix is well welcomed. But what about the fix for the supposed "grounding issue?"

    Also remove the 30FPS cap! <~~~ this probably won't ever happen. At least not until 2.2

    Otherwise I'm happy :)

    I saw somewhere around here yesterday that if you turn off syncing facebook, both in the settings and in the app itself, it will save your battery life and I have to admit it works! I turned off syncing in both places and today, after ~6 hours, I still have 71% battery life left. :D By this time, I'm usually charging it again.

    I hope the HTC fix works so I can turn my syncing on again but like others have said, if we need it, just go into the app and refresh it manually.

    Yea but it's a stock app and most evo owners don't know any better so it would be a smart move on their part to fix it before they get fed up with their battery life within 30 days.

    It's not Facebook. It's using more data because your phone has a Snapdragon processor, 4.3" screen & a kickstand.

    :p

    I doubt the wifi N will be included. I really doubt it. It was not in the fcc filings. Which means they would have to do the fcc rating.
