EVO 3D lockscreen fix

Follow that? HTC's just put out another update (following the initial one that fixed a calendar bug but borked the lockscreen, and a second to fix the HTC Watch app) for the Sprint EVO 3D. This one fixes the Sense 3.0 lockscreen, which lost its phone dialer shortcut (and couldn't get it back) following that initial calendar bugfix. It's a quick and easy update -- just download and restart and you're good to go.

I'm loving Sprint and HTC's collaboration on their devices the past year.

HTC seems to be very loyal to Sprint and they seem to keep them at a priority.

Now if we can only get some more love for out Evo 4G, everyone can be happy.

svargas05 says:

The Evo 4G got plenty of love and still does! It just got two updates the past 3 weeks.

From start to finish my Evo 4G was constantly being updated and getting new stuff. Sprint isnt going to let it die like that....

svargas05 says:

This seems to be having problems over my 4G connection. The progress bar stays at 0%

:/

Mine never showed progress either, it did complete however.

Way to go HTC, I like how theyre staying on top of things and giving their costomers good support

Sooo lol when(if) I get the EVO I already have 3updates to do before anything else? . . . It is what it is I guess. I'll go to Sprint today to check it out. Might still hold out for the S2

It's funny that our phones are becoming more like PCs. When you install a fresh copy of Windows you have an endless array of updates to do before anything else. I give HTC kudos for being so quick with their updates for the Evo 3D.

moosc says:

how many band aids does HTC have geez hire a engineer that knows how to program correctly the first time

cheburashka says:

Sooo you would rather wait to get 10 patches later all at the same time then get 10 updates? In that case you should get a samsung phone.

svargas05 says:

Well at least they're fixing their phones....

Unlike many other well known manufacturers........

I agree, this isn't something I would be very proud of.

That is great but I have the EVO 4G and the voice commands and voice to text still don't work after the last 2 updates this month!! When can we expect a fix for the fix for the gingerbread update. Or at least a root solution so I can load a Rom that works?

biissonah says:

I was thinking this was just me, but not to worry i guess since my 3D is on the delivery truck (been tracking all day) still have 3 hours to go :-(

Netflix is back up on my htc evo with this update... :-)

kurioskurion says:

Why do people ask phil to report stuff to manufacturers our carriers? Here's an idea, report it yourself....

Viscott says:

This is amazing how fast they are taking care of the few bugs that did not get squashed. It obvious that HTC and Sprint are reading our experiences online and fixing the bugs so quickly.

They are really taking care of Sprint customers, after all it is their reputation that they are trying to protect.

I feel so bad orphaning my EVO 4G with Gingerbread. The EVO 4G still feels like a new phone. But you can’t beat Sense 3.0 on the 3D!

Fubie says:

Did the hard reset after the first update and then updated with the second HTC update and my lock screen dialer is still missing??? LOL

jeffbengr says:

Only caveat to being "good to go"...shortcut was still empty after rebooting...I had to go back and select phone, but at least it's there again as a choice!

Hanowa1 says:

ATT= customer service? Wait, is that right? Ummm, Nope. Miraculously updated Inspire 4g into a paperweight. Time to root! ATT SUCKS!! Flashing! Peace.

I'm needing another update too, not sending my text to certain ppl. I got the HTC EVO 4G
