    See above - you don't use it - it uses you.

    Prior to this, only rooters were able to remove the HTC snoopers - and that's what it does, snoops for adding to the marketing database based on how you use your phone.

    Clearly - knowing that they are now giving people S-OFF means that, yes, they are pulling out the stops and giving regular, non-rooting users access to ALL of the baloney - without rooting.

    I rooted my Moment just to try to make it work - but I rooted my Evo because of the bloatware.

    I agree - the more common-sense power they give BACK to the owners, the less people will see the need to root.

    Nicely done, HTC/Sprint, nicely done! :)

    Exact opposite for me: Screen shot = no shutter sound. Camera = shutter sound. Annoying.

    The update screwed up my gb kb. It is taking up almost the whole screen and has jumbo size buttons looks pathetic. Anyone experiencing this issue?

    Add-on? Try a re-install?

    Sorry, I'm on a different keyboard anyways.

    The day's young, maybe some one will have an answer as more users get the update and come on line.

    Screen shot = no shutter when on vibrate or silent, shutter when volume is on
    Camera = Shutter sound anytime

    I hate to admit this, but this shutter sound is one of those small annoying details that is a deal breaker in my book. If I had known about it going in, I would have hands down forgone this update.
    Some developers make it so you cannot disable the shutter sound on purpose(Motorola is one of them). HTC hasn't been one of them in the past that I know of, so I'm leaning towards a bug that needs a quick update. But you never know, they could have changed their policy.
    See this thread for some more reading on it:

    Yeah just tried uninstalling it and reinstalling same issue. I prefer it over swype and stock htc since it has multitouch and the ability to send text while in landscape mode staight from the kb. Oh well back to htc ime kb for now.

  18. Of course I install the hackers keyboard and the problem with the dictionary goes away with swype keyboard. I switch to hacker than come back dictionary problem comes back.

    no need to go through the setup wizard to disable Tell HTC. its avail in the "About Phone" section.

    its there in plain site.. some times that's difficult to see. :)

    Hello all,
    Just a fair warning, I am new to HTC, Sprint, and android. I came from a iPhone 4. I owned and jailbroke them all and was pretty good at it. Having said that I know nothing about HTC and andriod (but I love it WAY more than the iPhone and iOS). I rooted my phone about a week ago and installed CleanRom v1.3. I like it and it worked well. I am not wanting to update my software. I back up all my info via MyBackup and did a factory reset via the recovery mode by turning off my phone and pressing power + volume up. I then downloaded the new OTA update. It downloaded fine and asked me if I wanted to install it, I said yes. My phone restarts and an exclamation point with a triangle shows up along with a little blue android dude. I wasn't sure if this was normal or not. it has been 50min and they are still there. Again, I wasn't sure if this was normal or not. I have tried to look this up online and can't find anything. I was hoping someone would be able to help me out with this. Thanks!

    Note-I can pull the battery out and restart my phone fine. It just shows up with my factory reset setting and still seems to be rooted.

    Didn't seem to have fixed the messaging widget issue. I want to be able to put the HTC messaging widget on one of my home screens but it efaults to Handsent. I had no problem doing this on my Evo 4G or my Hero. It just won't let me do it on the 3D. Other then the screen capture, I haven't noticed any other changes.

    Did the update. Now phone won't connect to Ford SYNC. Tried numerous times to pair it. Phone shows its connected, car says it's not. Worked flawlessly before the update. :(

    I knew there was another way, I just hadn't found it yet. Thanks for finding it. ;)

    I was wondering if the update has made dropped calls or call quality any better then before? I have heard there is a radio update and wonder what exactly does this do?
