    The HTC Amaze appears to be coming with Sense 3.0. Can anyone tell me if it will be possible to upgrade it to Sense 3.5?

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Not stock. HTC has never upgraded a verson of Sense on a phone that has already been released. Now if you can root it then there will likely be custom roms with 3.5 on them, I know there are roms for my thunderbolt that have Sense 3.5 and it was released with Sense 2.1

    That's not accurate. The Evo Shift went from Sense 1 to Sense 2.1 in an OTA update this year.

    I didn't realize that, after some googling it looks like a few phones went from 1.0 to 2.0. Perhaps some 3.0 phones will go to 3.5 at some point.

    We all know that taste! :D ;)

    So, the best answer for the OP is probably - it's possible you may see an over-the-air update for it, but if not and the 3.5 features intrigue you, best to keep an eye in here once the phone is out -

    Even if it isn't a full update to 3.5 HTC does like to bring features over from higher versions as well so you may be able to get parts of it staying stock but you may be able to get some.

    Thanks for the information. I'll keep my eyes open for an update to 3.5, or a 3.5 ROM. Apparently the free 5GB Dropbox cloud is only available with Sense 3.5.
