    This is the same as 2.05.405.2 stock update from HTC including the SMS bug. This is where the SMS conversation is backwards so you have to scroll to the bottom all the time to see the latest message.

    I think that will become annoying very fast, it might be worth ignoring the update even until VF get it fixed.

    I've had the update for a few hours, and yes, the backwards SMS thread bug is very f*****g annoying. I've already told the wife not to update her Legend.

    I'm actually amazed this clanger wasn't spotted before the release as it's just about the only difference I can see that the update has made at all !!!!

    What was this update for ?

    Cheers for that.

    Talking of the radio.....

    is it possible to have the MW frequency rather than just the FM or is there some technical reason why mobile phones only have FM ?

    Could they put DAB on them ?

    FM and MW operate on completely different frequencies so unless they also include the necessary hardware to receive MW signals that's a non starter, same goes for DAB.

    It wouldn't affect alternative sms programmes like handcent sms, would it? I use that and its ace; I like it as it is though and woulld rather it not be backwards...

    Handcent still works as it should.

    I have had to change to it due to the SMS bug.

    Checking for email doesn't seem to work. If I go into email and do a manual refresh it find emails from 12+ hours ago. The phone is set to check every 15 minutes. This was working before the update.

    Yep, I have the same problem.

    As updates go, it's not been a massive success, has it ? :D

    Its been a F***ing joke really and VF responces on the eforum are just an embarresment. Unfortunetly not enough people have the Legend to kick up a big fuss. I emailed BitterWallet, TheInquirer and TheRegister who are all running stories. Hopefully others will and spread the word.

    I really regret getting a VF branded handset. VF don't seem to know how to cope with updates. This is where Apple have got it right, they don't let the operator interfere with the firmware.

    Debrand it!
    If you get problems and want to send back to VF just refalsh the stock VF rom.
    That's my intention if things go wrong.

    Can't beleive they've taken the HTC patch and made it worse!
    The email is fine on my HTC updated phone, although the SMS isn't.

    Ive just updated, but this doesnt seem to be a problem with my phone. Am i the only one?

    I believe the HTC Desire and Legend are two of the best selling phones in the UK at the moment, so I think Vodafone will have to get their arses into gear if they want to keep the bad feeling to a minimum.

    They might be the best selling but a lack of a responce after 48 hours is shambolic and a clear indication VF don't care. They don't seem to get Android and how to engage with a customer base. The policy of not being allowed to talk about firmware is pretty silly.

    I installed it this morning on the walk into work, as it said 'improved data reliability' or something, and that sounded good.

    Now I have the horrible reverse SMS thing (and in threads with 100+ messages that's zero fun), and it never polls for emails anymore.

    Not impressed!

    I have read somewhere i cant find the link atm that after this current update it is almost impossble to root or debrand the phone which was the real reason for this update in the first place very sneaky i think.For many people it has become imposible to flash a new rom since the update i wonder iff anyone knows of any workaround as i am considering debranding but i have accepted the update.

    Have you tried Handcent SMS? It's excellent and (I believe - I'm not touching this update) unaffected by the reverse message bug.
